ACM MobiCom 2016 Call for Papers

As the premier conference on mobile computing and wireless networking,
MobiCom 2016 solicits full papers (limited to 12 pages excluding
references) that focus on the theory, system, practice, and challenge of
providing users with an enriched and ubiquitous mobile or wireless
experience. At its core, we solicit papers that address important
challenges in access/communication, energy, computing, security and user
experience as it applies to wireless networking and mobile computing. We
strongly encourage papers on emerging mobile/wireless topics including but
not limited to next generation (5G) mobile networks, Internet of things,
machine-to-machine communications, visible light communication, novel
access paradigms/modalities, smart devices, wearable computing, and mobile
data science/analysis. We also invite papers that integrate mobile/wireless
research with innovations in cloud computing and software defined

Successful papers will address real research challenges through theoretical
analysis, novel system design, and/or real-world measurement and deployment
of mobile networks, systems and applications. The program committee will
evaluate each paper using metrics that are appropriate for the topic area.
The accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings. All
submissions must describe original research, not published or currently
under review for another conference or journal.

In addition to regular, full research papers, the conference also invites
submission in the following categories:

Experience Papers
The conference invites submission of short papers (limited to 8 pages
excluding references) that present extensive experiences with
implementation, deployment, and operations of mobile systems and wireless
networks. Desirable papers are expected to contain real data as well as
description of the practical lessons learned. The experiences papers will
be evaluated by the MobiCom technical program committee, primarily for (i)
the richness of their data or experiences, (ii) inferences drawn or lessons
learned, (iii) discovery of new problems, and (iv) their impact on current
and future mobile systems and wireless networks as well as on the society.
Note that a paper that builds a system and presents a limited experimental
evaluation is not suitable as an experience paper. The selected experience
papers will be a part of the MobiCom technical program and will be
published in the conference proceedings. They should be submitted using the
same submission procedure adopted for the full papers. The title of these
papers must have the prefix "Experience:".

Challenge Papers
The conference also invites submission of short papers (limited to 8 pages
excluding references) that present revolutionary new ideas or that
challenge existing assumptions prevalent among the wireless research
community. These "challenges papers" should provide stimulating ideas or
visions that may open up exciting avenues and/or influence the direction of
future research. Descriptions of new products or evolution of existing work
are not appropriate topics for papers in this category. While an exhaustive
evaluation of the proposed ideas is not necessary, insight and in-depth
understanding of the issues is expected. Challenges papers will be reviewed
by the MobiCom technical program committee and will be part of the
technical program and published in the MobiCom proceedings. They should be
submitted using the same submission procedure adopted for the full papers.
The title of these papers must have the prefix "Challenge:".
