The Tenth Workshop on Mobile Computing, Systems, and Applications
Santa Cruz, CA, USA
February 23-24, 2009
Sponsored by ACM SIGMOBILE
Call for Posters and Demos
Poster and demo submissions due: January 12th, 2009 at 23:59:59 EST.
Poster and demo submissions due (extended): January 16th, 2009 at 23:59:59 EST.
ACM HotMobile 2009, the Tenth Workshop on Mobile Computing Systems and Applications 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.
HotMobile seeks proposals for posters and live demonstrations describing novel work on mobile systems, applications and services. Posters and demonstrations will be presented during an evening reception at the workshop. The poster/demo session is meant to introduce new or ongoing work and provide opportunities for authors to interact directly with workshop attendees.
Posters are well suited to controversial work that can generate discussion or promising new ideas which have not been thoroughly evaluated. Live demos provide an opportunity to demonstrate the feasibility and usefulness of your research.
Poster and Demo Submission Instructions
Submissions must include an extended abstract no longer than one 8.5x11-inch page, including all figures and references. Submissions must be made electronically in an email message to the Poster Chair at:
mailto: varshavsky [at]
with a subject line of "HOTMOBILE POSTER/DEMO SUBMISSION"
The body of the email should
include the title of the poster and the author list, including affiliations.
The abstract should be attached in PDF format. Demonstration submissions
should include infrastructure needs, such as power, network, etc. Poster
and demo submissions are due on (
January 12th, 2009 at 23:59:59 EST) January 16th, 2009 at 23:59:59 EST.
Call for Papers
Submission Deadline: October 13, 2008
Submission Deadline (extended): October 17, 2008
ACM HotMobile 2009, the Tenth Workshop on Mobile Computing Systems and Applications 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 2009 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.
To encourage an atmosphere conducive to participation, attendance will be limited to 70 participants. Authors of submitted papers and accepted demo proposals will be given first priority, with others able to register on a space-available basis.
Paper submission instructions
Paper submissions are due on (
Oct 13, 2008) Oct 17, 2008 at 23:59:59 PDST (Pacific
Daylight Savings Time). Submissions should contain 6 or fewer U.S.
letter pages in PDF format, including all references, figures and
tables. Papers should use the standard ACM template, available at:
Conference proceedings will be published by the ACM. Unlike previous years, printed proceedings will be given to participants at the workshop (rather than having a post-conference proceedings).
As is customary, papers must not have been published elsewhere and may not be simultaneously under submission at another venue. Papers accompanied by nondisclosure agreement forms are not acceptable and will be returned to the author(s) unread. As customary with the scientific peer review process, submissions will be handled as confidential material during the review.
