MobiQuitous 2017 ( invites proposals for
workshops of the 14th International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous
Systems: Computing, Networking and Services, to be held in Melbourne,
Australia, 6-9 November 2017.

We are soliciting workshop proposals on any topic of relevance to Mobile
and Ubiquitous Computing. All workshops will be held on 6 November 2017.
Workshops are a great opportunity for community building and a forum for
attendees with common interests. Accepted workshop papers are included in
the adjunct proceedings of the Mobiquitous Conference and will be
accessible via the ACM digital library.

Pre-proposal Submission Inquiries
Should you wish to discuss ideas for a workshop proposal, feel free to

Workshop Proposal Content

The proposal should be prepared as a document of no more than 4 pages in
the official ACM proceedings format – tighter alternate style (Word,
Latex), and must in addition include a Call for Papers. It must describe
the topic, rationale and objectives for the workshop, the organizers’
backgrounds and bio, an estimate of expected attendance, in the case of
follow-up workshops: statistics from any previously held workshops and a
detailed plan (timeline) for conducting the workshop (including any plans
for pre-workshop preparation and/or post-workshop follow up).

Workshop Selection Process

Workshops will be reviewed by a jury of experts who will consider several
factors, including:
* The potential for the topic of the workshop to generate stimulating
discussions and useful results.
* The expected interest of the community in the workshop topic.
* The quality, organization and plan described in the workshop proposal.
* Relevance to the main conference.

In the case of multiple submissions on similar topics, organizers may be
encouraged to merge them.

Workshop Organizers' Responsibilities

The organizers of each workshop are expected to:
* Publicize the workshop with a call for participation via the MobiQuitous
* Set up a own web site for the workshop containing more details on the
workshop, including CFP, workshop format, plans for publication (if any),
participants, program, etc.
* Provide address of workshop website to conference organisers ( will then point to the individual workshop websites)
* Encourage potential participants to submit papers
