The Fifth  IEEE Workshop on Mobile Computing Systems and Applications is the latest in a series of high-quality, interactive forums for discussion on all aspects of mobile computing systems and applications. We solicit submissions that primarily focus on applications, systems, and environments.  Submissions describing new lower-level technologies are welcome if they focus on how the technology is being used or integrated into a system or application.

WMCSA's small workshop format makes it ideal for presenting and discussing new directions or controversial approaches, even if the work is at an early stage, although even early-stage work will be expected to provide some early validation of the feasibility of the approach.

We are particularly interested in the following topic areas: 

Papers should be 10 US letter pages or less, and should describe either completed or ongoing work (see Submission Instructions for details).  The conference proceedings will be published by the IEEE and we hope to publish a digest of the workshop in a relevant journal. As is customary, papers must not have been published elsewhere and cannot be simultaneously under submission at another venue.

To further stimulate discussion, we welcome researchers who would like to demonstrate working prototypes of their systems. If you would like to demo at WMCSA 2003 please send a one-page description of your demonstration to the Demo Chair.

To encourage an interactive atmosphere, attendance will be limited to approximately 75 attendees. Authors of submitted papers and accepted demo proposals will be given first preference, with others able to register on a space-available basis.

A small number of graduate students will be granted a waiver of the registration fee. In return, they will be asked to take notes at the workshop. Students requesting a waiver should submit a brief proposal.  Click here for submission instructions.

We look forward to another highly successful and enjoyable workshop, this time in northern California, one of the most scenic areas of the USA.
