Call for papers

The Sixth IEEE Workshop on Mobile Computing Systems and Applications continues the series of high-quality, interactive workshops focused on mobile and ubiquitous applications, systems, and environments, as well as their underlying state-of-the-art technologies.

We solicit submissions that concentrate primarily 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.


We are particularly interested in the following topic areas:

Submission instructions

Submissions are now closed. Please contact Adrian Friday urgently if your submission remains unintentionally incomplete. Further instructions will be available for camera-ready copies at a later date.

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 may not be simultaneously under submission at another venue.

To encourage an interactive atmosphere, attendance will be limited. 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. Waiver proposal submission instructions will be posted when available on this web site.


To further stimulate discussion, we welcome researchers who would like to demonstrate working prototypes of their systems. Please send a brief demo proposal (2 pages in 12pt font) via email in PDF format to Christian Becker ( More detailed guidelines as to what is expected in the proposal can be found in the call for demos.
