The 8th IEEE Workshop
on Mobile Computing Systems and Applications (HotMobile 2007)
Call For Papers
Date: February 26-27, 2007
Location: Westin La Paloma, Tucson, Arizona
Submission Deadline: Oct 16, 2006
The Eighth IEEE Workshop on Mobile Computing Systems and Applications (HotMobile 2007) continues the series of highly selective, interactive workshops focused on mobile applications, systems, and environments, as well as their underlying state-of-the-art technologies. HotMobile 's small workshop format makes it ideal for presenting and discussing new directions or controversial approaches.
We solicit submissions of position papers that focus primarily on applications and systems and that propose new directions of research, advocate non-traditional approaches to old (or new) ideas, or generate controversy and discussion. We particularly look for position papers containing highly original ideas in the following topic areas, although papers describing other challenges unique to or exacerbated by mobility are also welcome:
- Operating system and distributed systems support for mobile computing
- Coordination, aggregation, and spontaneous interaction of mobile devices
- Novel applications and environments supporting mobility
- HCI issues related to mobile computing
- Security and privacy of mobile computing
- Management, configuration, and deployment of systems supporting mobility
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.
HotMobile 2007 will be a highly interactive workshop. Submissions will be judged based upon originality, technical merit, topical relevance, and likelihood of leading to insightful discussion at the workshop. Please do not submit abbreviated versions of papers to be submitted within the next year to a conference or journal.
To encourage an atmosphere conducive to participation, attendance will be limited to 60 participants. Authors of submitted papers and accepted demo proposals will be given first priority, 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 the web site.
Paper Submission Instructions
Paper submissions are due on Oct 23, 2006 at 23:59:59 EST. Submissions should contain 6 or fewer U.S. letter pages in PDF format. Papers should be single column using 12pt font. The conference proceedings will be published by the IEEE. Preliminary proceedings will be made available to workshop participants online ahead of the workshop. Printed proceedings will be published and mailed to participants after the workshop. As is customary, papers must not have been published elsewhere and may not be simultaneously under submission at another venue.
To further stimulate discussion, we welcome researchers who would like to demonstrate working prototypes of their systems. Instructions for submitting demo proposals will be posted on the web site.
