Doctoral Consortium

The 13th Annual International Workshop on Mobile Computing Systems and Applications (HotMobile 2012)

Sponsored by ACM SIGMOBILE

February, 2012
San Diego, CA, USA

Due Date: January 23rd, 2012 at 23:59:59 EST

ACM HotMobile 2012, the Thirteenth 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 our Doctoral Consortium describing novel work on mobile systems, applications and services. The Doctoral Consortium will consist of several short, "work-in-progress" style talks at the end of each session. By giving each student a short slot at the end of each session during the workshop, students will be able to present their doctoral work to a broad audience, and interact directly with workshop attendees.

This forum is best suited to students who are far enough into their PhD to have a concrete dissertation proposal outlining the key challenges they plan to solve as well as the strategies and methodologies that are applicable. Furthermore, participants should not plan to finish their dissertation within 6 months of the forum, as that would leave little time to include advice and suggestions into their work.
