         Call for Posters, Videos, Doctoral School and Student Design 

   15th International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Multimedia 
(MUM 2016)

                 December 12 - December 15, 2016 in Rovaniemi, Finland

                  Organized by the University of Lapland, Rovaniemi
                          in-cooperation with ACM SIGCHI


**Submission deadline for all categories is October 21, 2016**

We explicitly welcome submissions to multiple categories. By submitting 
one paper in the following categories (up to 2 pages excluding 
references in SIGCHI Double Column Format: LaTeX or Word), authors can 
select multiple formats of presentation, including a poster, a video, a 
demo, a doctoral school submission and a student design competition . If 
multiple categories are used for presenting a certain research project, 
please upload the paper only in one submission category. For example, if 
you want to submit a two-page paper with a poster and a video, you can 
submit it to the poster track in EasyChair first, and provide the ID of 
this poster submission in the additional video track submission instead 
of uploading the paper again. The same way you can refer to a full or 
short paper submission from a poster, demo or video track submission.

Please note that the respective chairs will review suitability for 
presentation in each category separately. Accepted demo, poster and 
video submissions will be included in the conference proceedings 
published by ACM Press and included in the ACM Digital Library. For 
doctoral school submissions, the author can select if s/he wants the 
submission to be included.

The MUM poster track provides an opportunity for researchers and 
practitioners to show and discuss their recent work on mobile and 
ubiquitous multimedia systems, services, interactions and experiences. 
The submissions can be also about something that has not been fully 
designed, implemented or tested but shows great promise, has a provoking 
topic or only preliminary results, or summarizes several small-scale 
studies. Topics of interest are the same as mentioned in the CfP for 
short and full papers. Posters provide the opportunity for researchers 
to get feedback on early-stage work, discuss potential collaborations 
and burning issues in an informal manner with the MUM community.

Poster submissions should be up to 2 pages excluding references in 
SIGCHI Double Column Format (excluding references) and they should be 
accompanied by a first version of the poster. The posters are 
recommended to be in A0 format (84cm x 119cm / 33in x 47in), and must be 
in portrait orientation. Poster submissions must include an abstract of 
less than 150 words that clearly states the poster's contribution to the 
field. Submissions will undergo a double-blind review process managed by 
the poster chairs and the poster committee.

Accepted submissions will be presented in dedicated poster sessions at 
the conference. Authors are expected to bring the accepted posters to 
the conference site with them and be present at the posters and demos 
session on the second day of the conference.

Chairs: Thomas Olsson and Katrin Wolf ([log in to unmask])

The MUM 2016 demonstration track provides an opportunity to present a 
hands-on demonstration of your work, research, service, prototype or 
product addressing one or more of the suggested topics in the general 
call for participation. We want to see and play with your prototypes, 
services, devices, systems and any innovative example of mobile and 
ubiquitous multimedia. We encourage making your demonstration visually 
or otherwise appealing and presenting it in an innovative way in order 
to attract the participation of attendees.

Demo submissions should max. 2 pages excluding references in SIGCHI 
Double Column Format, and accompanied by a one-page informal 
specification of the infrastructure requirements. Demo submissions 
contain an abstract that is less than 150 words long that clearly states 
the demo's contribution to the field. Authors are encouraged to submit 
an illustrative video to accompany their paper. Submissions will undergo 
a review process managed by the demonstration chairs.

The demonstration chairs will investigate infrastructure and equipment 
possibilities for the accepted demonstrations. Participants are expected 
to bring the necessary equipment to the conference site with them. 
Demonstrations will be presented during the posters and demos session at 
the second day of the conference.

Chairs: Kai Kunze and Denzil Ferreira ([log in to unmask])

The MUM 2016 video track is a forum that leaps off the page: vision 
videos, reflective pieces, humor, novel interfaces, games, AR systems, 
and anything else that is a good match for video and relevant to MUM. 
Videos will be shown to all attendees during a screening event at the 
first day of the conference. The video track is a great opportunity to 
showcase your work to the MUM community. Videos will be judged on their 
content and presentation, that is, how much they intellectually engage a 
MUM audience and how effectively they communicate their message. We are 
looking to create an enjoyable experience for the attendees. Interesting 
but poorly-produced videos may be rejected.

We welcome high-quality video submissions of any length up to 5 minutes, 
but 2-3 minutes is the more common length. We encourage the submission 
of videos either as new material or as supplemental to other 
submissions. A maximum of two-page paper submission (ACM Double Column 
Format, references do not count towards the page limit) of your video 
submission is required unless your submission accompanies a short or 
full paper, poster, demo, or doctoral school submission currently under 
review at MUM. The video should be self-explanatory and not require the 
viewer to read the paper. Submissions will undergo a review process 
managed by the video chairs.

It is very important that you have the rights to use all the material 
that is contained in your submission, including music, video, images, 
etc. Attaining permissions to use video, audio, or pictures of 
identifiable people or proprietary content rests with the author.

Videos may show work that has been published or released previously. 
Please make clear in your submission any prior exposure your video has 

Video format: H.264 encoded MP4, at least 1280px x 720px, at most 5 
minutes (2-3 minutes is a more common length)

Chairs: Julie Williamson and Daniela Petrelli ([log in to unmask])

**Doctoral School**
MUM 2016 will feature a doctoral consortium for the second time in the 
history of the conference series. This will be an opportunity for a 
small group of PhD students to meet and discuss their work with each 
other and with a panel of experienced researchers in the field, in an 
informal and interactive setting. We welcome applications from current 
PhD students studying in any area of relevance to the MUM community. You 
will benefit most from this opportunity, if you are already beyond 
proposal stage in your PhD and have clearly identified your PhD topic 
and approach.

To apply for participation in the doctoral school, we ask you to submit 
A maximum of two-page paper in ACM Double Column Format (references do 
not count towards the page limit). The paper should describe the context 
and motivation of your PhD research, the problem and aims that drive 
your research and your research objectives and/or questions. It should 
further describe and explain your (proposed) research approach and 
methods, and include a discussion of any results you may already have. 
Please also include the context of your PhD, i.e. the university 
programme in which you conduct your PhD, the status of your PhD, the 
expected completion date, and any other relevant information on your PhD 

Submissions will not be peer-reviewed. We will select students for 
participation with a view of prioritising those who would likely benefit 
most, i.e. students who have a clear plan as a foundation for 
discussion, but are not already too advanced in their PhD to still be 
able to benefit from advice in developing their dissertation. Accepted 
students will be asked to prepare a presentation on their PhD research, 
and a poster which will be included in the MUM 2016 poster track. For 
accepted doctoral consortium submissions, the author can select if s/he 
wants the submission to be included to the conference proceedings and 
ACM Digital Library.

Chairs: Oskar Juhlin and Keith Cheverst ([log in to unmask])

**Student Design Competition**
For the first time in the history of the conference series, MUM 2016 
will host a student design competition. The student design competition 
is a track where young designers and researchers at the beginning of 
their career can show their talent, imagination and skills, in 
concepting, modelling and prototyping their design vision on the 
competition theme.

The theme of the student design competition is "Below Zero", reflecting 
the Arctic location of the conference venue in Lapland. The competition 
entry consists of a design concept for a Below Zero context or use case, 
in the area of mobile and/or ubiquitous multimedia.

o participate in the competition, the students should form teams of 2-6 
students (bachelor, master’s or doctoral studies level). The team needs 
to come up with a design concept, which is reported in a short written 
report (see instructions below) and a poster. The submission should 
contain a clear description of the design concept, its use case, and the 
design process. We expect you to present how you started your concepting 
work, e.g. brainstorming and/or user study methods applied, what were 
the steps in your design process, and what kind of end concept and/or 
prototype you came up as the final result.

We expect entries from different design disciplines, including but not 
limited to, industrial design, interaction design, user experience 
design, clothing design, service design, and design researchers to take 
part of the competition. We encourage making your submission visually or 
otherwise appealing, and presenting it in an innovative way in order to 
attract the jury and the conference audience. The finalists will be 
invited to present their work at the conference, where the winner is 
selected by the chair and the jury. The competition entries will be 
judged for their innovativeness, design qualities, presentation quality, 
match with the theme, and readiness (e.g. design prototype, or ability 
to demonstrate the concept). The finalists’ presentations in the 
conference consists of an oral presentation, poster (A0 size), and, if 
applicable, a demo. At least one member of each finalist team must 
register and be present in the conference.

Authors are encouraged to submit an illustrative video (of max 3 
minutes) to accompany their paper. Submissions will undergo a jury 
evaluation process managed by the design competition chairs. Accepted 
finalists are expected to bring the necessary equipment to the 
conference site with them. Posters and demonstrations will be presented 
during the poster and demo session. The accepted 2 page paper 
submissions will be included to the proceedings and will appear in the 
ACM digital library.
