--- Call for Proposals to host MUM 2016 - 15th International Conference on
Mobile and Ubiquitous Multimedia ---

Submission deadline: September 30, 2015.

The Steering Committee of the International Conference on Mobile and
Ubiquitous Multimedia (MUM) calls for proposals to host MUM 2016, the 15th
conference in the series. MUM 2015 ( will be held
in Linz, Austria, on Nov 30 - Dec 2, 2015, with paper submission deadline on Aug 21, 2015.

MUM has established itself as a well-known annual international
conference, which brings together experts from both academia and industry
for a fruitful exchange of ideas and discussion on future challenges in a
comfortable and effective single track conference format. MUM is typically
organized in late November or early December and with submission deadline
in late August or early September provides a fast track for presenting
latest research results. MUM is organized in co-operation with
corresponding ACM SIGs and conference proceedings are archived in the ACM
Digital Library.

MUM is dedicated to being an international conference, which rotates
between all three areas of the globe (Europe/Africa, the Americas and
Asia/Pacific). As the 2015 conference will be held in Europe, MUM 2016
would prefer sites in the Americas or in Asia/Pacific. However, overall
proposal substance has priority over plain location.

A proposal is expected to address the following issues (please structure
the proposal accordingly):

1. Conference location (international travel connections should be

2. Conference venue(s) (conference facilities should be highlighted, the
hall allocated to the main conference track should have at least 100
seats, additional smaller rooms are needed for tutorial and workshops, all
public facilities should be covered with a proper WiFi network for
Internet access).

3. Tentative dates when the conference can be held (possible overlap with
competing conferences should be reported).

4. Short biographies of key persons (general chair(s), PC chair(s), local
arrangements chair(s), other chairs). A proper distribution of geographies
and expertise is required. Please note that a full PC is not
expected to be named.

5. Proposed conference structure with daily scheduling (main conference
(single track), tutorials, workshops, special tracks/sessions, demos,
doctoral colloquium, pre/post conference social program etc.) While a
proposal is most welcome to follow the structure of past MUM conferences,
innovative modifications are encouraged and should be highlighted.

6. Proposed conference timeline with key dates (1st CFP distributed, 2nd
CFP distributed, submission deadlines, reviews due, notification of
acceptance, camera ready version due, registration deadline).

7. Preliminary budget (itemized cost estimate, itemized funding plan
including projected registration fees and potential sponsorship). Please
note that the local arrangement chair(s) assume(s) full financial
responsibility for the conference.

8. Overview of local arrangements (hotel block reservations including a
low-cost option, conference publicity and marketing, conference website,
paper submission system, handling of credit card payments, student
volunteers, pre/post conference social program, etc.)

9. Description of planned ACM co-operation (identification of SIGs whose
co-operation will be sought, see
