Call for Papers

ACM HotMobile 2010, the eleventh 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, environments, and devices 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 2010 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 Presentation at HotMobile is a good way to get early feedback on research ideas that are a year or more from submission as a full conference paper to the ACM MobiSys conference or other high-quality conferences. Submitting a full-length paper on the same topic to MobiSys in less than a year is unlikely to involve a sufficient increment of work and maturity of ideas.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.

Notice - New deadline

Anybody who has submitted a paper for the previous October 12 deadline, can continue to modify their papers until October 18, midnight.
