The 14th Annual International Workshop on Mobile Computing
        Systems and Applications (ACM HotMobile 2013)
                  Sponsored by ACM SIGMOBILE
                     26-27 February, 2013
                    Jekyll Island, GA, USA
ACM HotMobile 2013, the 14th 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 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 system 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
ACM HotMobile 2013 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.
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. Papers should use the standard
ACM template, available at:
