Call For Papers
Call for Papers for
5th International Conference on Mobile Computing, Applications and Services
Nov 7-8 2013 in Paris, France
MobiCASE, the International Conference on Mobile Computing, Applications, and Services,
is dedicated to cutting edge research on mobile applications and services.
In its 5th edition, MobiCASE has become the premier scientific forum bringing
together academic researchers and industrial professionals to jointly advance research
in the area of Mobile Computing, Applications, and Services.
As in previous years, MobiCASE 2013 is scheduled to include high-quality paper
presentation sessions revealing the latest in mobile computing research, to demo
industry's most exciting mobile applications and services, and to engage participants
in hands-on projects and tutorials.
We seek novel submissions in mobile applications, services and mobile systems
research topics above the OSI transport layer with an emphasis on complete
end-to-end systems & their components. The conference will be organized into two
broad categories (see below for areas of interest).

All accepted papers will be contained in the conference proceedings published in
the LNICST series by Springer. Therefore submissions must conform to the LNICST LaTeX stylesheets.
Regular paper submissions must present original, highly innovative, prospective
and forward-looking research in one or more of the themes given above. We solicit
papers of up to maximum of eighteen (18) pages in LNCS style, but explicitly welcome
shorter papers for presentation of pointed results. It is important that their length
is appropriate for their content.
We also encourage researchers and students to submit short work-in-progress (WIP) papers.
This submission format offers the opportunity for presenting late-breaking research results,
ongoing research projects, and speculative or innovative work in progress.
WIP papers are limited to eight (8) single-column pages.
INDUSTRIAL EXTENDED ABSTRACTS
The industrial track complements the research paper track. It is dedicated to new achievements
and advances in practical mobile applications and services. Open problems or challenges that
arise from an industrial context are also welcome. As fertilizer for open innovation, it will
foster the exchange of ideas, solutions, best practices, and requirements between research and
industry on recent and ongoing work in mobile applications and service provisioning for
mobile users. We also encourage the participation from small development or consulting companies
and startups for their business development opportunities. Industry abstracts are limited to
four (4) single-column pages.
POSTERS AND DEMOS
MobiCASE seeks for live demonstrations that serve to disseminate advanced technologies in mobile
computing applications and services. Posters and demos will be selected on the basis of
technical merit, novelty and relevance to the mobile computing community. The demo session
aims to showcase research prototypes at all stages of maturity, and as such, we welcome demonstrations
of both published and unpublished work. The poster session will be an excellent venue for highlighting
early work on new and controversial mobile applications and end-to-end systems. They will be presented
in a special session during the conference to allow presenters to interact with conference attendees
and gain feedback on their ongoing work. Both posters and demos are limited to four (4) single-column pages.
MobiCASE requires that all papers describe novel, unpublished work not currently under review elsewhere.
Submission instructions will be available at http://www.mobicase.org/submit.shtml
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
All papers will be reviewed by an international program committee with the appropriate expertise.
MobiCASE 2013 aims to be selective and the committee will favor a technically robust program.
MobiCASE 2013 adopts a double-blind process for submitted contributions. Authors' names and
their affiliations must not be revealed or mentioned anywhere in the submission.
At least two members of the Program Committee and a set of external expert reviewers
will review submitted papers. At a PC meeting, the committee will select those papers, demos,
and posters to be presented at MobiCASE 2013.
