Call for Papers

The 19th Annual International Workshop on Mobile Computing Systems and Applications (ACM HotMobile 2018)

Sponsored by ACM SIGMOBILE
13-14 February, 2018
Tempe, Arizona, USA

ACM HotMobile 2018, the Nineteenth International 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 papers that (1) focus primarily on applications and systems and (2) propose new directions of research, advocate non-traditional approaches to old (or new) ideas, or generate controversy and discussion. We especially encourage papers that identify fundamental open questions, advocate a new approach, offer a constructive critique of the state-of-the-art, debunk existing assumptions, report unexpected early results, report on promising but unproven ideas, or propose new evaluation methods. Novel ideas need not be supported by full evaluations; well-reasoned arguments or preliminary evaluations suffice. The program committee will explicitly favor early work and papers likely to stimulate reflection and discussion over a "6-page conference paper".

We take a broad view of Mobile Systems research. This includes:

Novel applications, environments, and devices supporting mobility
Operating system and distributed system support for mobile computing
Wearable computing, internet of things, sensing, and context-awareness
HCI issues related to mobile computing
Security and privacy of mobile computing
Management, configuration, and deployment of systems supporting mobility
Wireless technology, as it pertains to mobile systems and applications.
The deadline for submissions is October 12, 2017, 11:59pm EST. Acceptance notification will go out on December 15, 2017.

Presenting at HotMobile is a good way to get early feedback on research ideas at least one year away from a full-fledged conference submission to ACM MobiSys or other high-quality conferences. A full-length paper on the same topic submitted to a conference in less than a year is unlikely to include sufficient new material and more mature ideas.

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.

Submissions should contain 6 or fewer U.S. letter pages in PDF format, including all references, figures and tables. The submissions should not be anonymous. Papers should use the standard ACM template, available at: http://www.acm.org/ For more submission guidelines, please visit the conference website.

The papers accepted to HotMobile 2018 will be publicly available from the workshop's website for a limited time window, as per ACM's Digital Library's Policy.

If you have any questions, please contact the PC chair at arunab@cs.stonybrook.edu.
