Dear Friends,

Below is a CFP for MobiSys 2015. Some highlights:
- MobiSys 2015 will be co-located with WWW 2015 in Florence, Italy
- MobiSys 2015 will be held earlier than in past years
- As such, the deadline for papers will also be a bit earlier
   than in past years (Nov 28 for abstracts, Dec 5 for papers)


MobiSys 2015

The Thirteenth International Conference on Mobile Systems, Applications, 
and Services

May 20-22, 2015
Florence, Italy

Co-located with WWW 2015

Call for Papers
MobiSys 2015 will continue the tradition of publishing top-notch
research papers dealing with all aspects of mobile systems.
MobiSys seeks original papers that take a broad systems
perspective rather than focus narrowly on low-level components.
Of particular interest are technical contributions that enable
new and compelling mobile scenarios and applications. The
conference values results and insights obtained from working
implementations more highly than those obtained solely from

Please note that the Mobisys paper deadline and the conference
itself is earlier than in the past, due to co-location with
WWW 2015.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
 Experience with mobile applications, networks and systems
 Innovative mobile, mobile sensing, and mobile crowdsourcing apps
 Tools for building and measuring mobile systems
 Innovative wearable or mobile devices
 Novel software architectures for mobile devices
 Data management for mobile applications
 Infrastructure support for node mobility
 System-level energy management for mobile devices
 Operating systems for mobile devices
 Support for mobile social networking and mobile Web
 Security and privacy in mobile systems
 Systems for location and context sensing and awareness
 Mobile computing support for pervasive computing
 Vehicular wireless systems
 User interfaces and usability for mobile applications and systems
 Personal-area networks and systems
 Cyber foraging and resource discovery for mobile systems

Papers on work that is currently under review, whether in
shorter, longer, or the same form, must not be submitted to
MobiSys. Submission of a longer version of a published, not
just accepted, workshop paper is encouraged if it includes
significant new contributions. However, the authors must cite
their workshop paper. Furthermore, extended versions of papers
submitted to Hotmobile 2015 should not be submitted to Mobisys
2015, as it is extremely unlikely that they would meet this
standard of significant new contributions. Submissions will be
single blind, i.e., reviewers will be anonymous and submissions
should include authors' names and institutions.

We strongly encourage perspective authors to use past MobiSys
proceedings as a guideline to assess the readiness of their work
for submission. Due to high review load on PC members, low quality
or premature work submitted to the conference is likely to receive
a smaller number of reviews and the reviews may be brief.

ACM has been making an effort to support more open access to the
proceedings of its sponsored conferences. As a result, the MobiSys
2015 proceedings will be publicly available through the conference
website from two weeks before the conference to two weeks after it.

Simultaneous submission of the same work to multiple venues,
submission of previously published work, or plagiarism constitutes
dishonesty or fraud. Papers meeting any of these criteria will be
rejected. Authors uncertain whether their submission meets these
guidelines should contact the program chairs. Papers accompanied
by nondisclosure agreement forms will not be considered. Accepted
submissions will be treated as confidential prior to publication;
rejected submissions will be permanently treated as confidential.

As part of the submission process, authors of papers that describe
experiments on human subjects, or that analyze nonpublic data
derived from human subjects (even anonymized data), will be asked
to certify that their work was vetted by an ethics review (e.g.,
IRB approval). We expect authors to follow the rules of their host
institutions around data collection and experiments with human

Selected outstanding papers may be fast-tracked as a special
section of IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing.

Best Paper Award
All papers will be considered for the Best Paper Award. The
program committee will select a number of candidates for the
award among accepted papers. The winner will be selected at
the conference, considering both the paper and the presentation.

(Nov 29, 2014, 04:59 AM UTC)
