Call for Papers

The 19th Annual International Workshop on Mobile Computing Systems and
Applications (ACM HotMobile 2018)

Sponsored by ACM SIGMOBILE
12-13 February, 2018
Tempe, Arizona, USA

ACM HotMobile 2018, the Nineteenth International Workshop on Mobile
Computing Systems and Applications continues the series of highly
selective, interactive workshops focused on mobile applications, systems,
and environments, as well as their underlying state-of-the-art
technologies. HotMobile's small workshop format makes it ideal for
presenting and discussing new directions or controversial approaches.

We solicit submissions of papers that (1) focus primarily on applications
and systems and (2) propose new directions of research, advocate
non-traditional approaches to old (or new) ideas, or generate controversy
and discussion. We especially encourage papers that identify fundamental
open questions, advocate a new approach, offer a constructive critique of
the state-of-the-art, debunk existing assumptions, report unexpected early
results, report on promising but unproven ideas, or propose new evaluation
methods. Novel ideas need not be supported by full evaluations;
well-reasoned arguments or preliminary evaluations suffice. The program
committee will explicitly favor early work and papers likely to stimulate
reflection and discussion over a "6-page conference paper".

We take a broad view of Mobile Systems research. This includes:

Novel applications, environments, and devices supporting mobility
Operating system and distributed system support for mobile computing
Wearable computing, internet of things, sensing, and context-awareness
HCI issues related to mobile computing
Security and privacy of mobile computing
Management, configuration, and deployment of systems supporting mobility
Wireless technology, as it pertains to mobile systems and applications.
The deadline for abstract submission is October 5, 2017 EST and the full
paper is due October 12, 2017, 11:59pm EST. Acceptance notification will go
out on December 15, 2017.

Presenting at HotMobile is a good way to get early feedback on research
ideas at least one year away from a full-fledged conference submission to
ACM MobiSys or other high-quality conferences. A full-length paper on the
same topic submitted to a conference in less than a year is unlikely to
include sufficient new material and more mature ideas.

As is customary, papers must not have been published elsewhere and may not
be simultaneously under submission at another venue. Papers accompanied by
nondisclosure agreement forms are not acceptable and will be returned to
the author(s) unread. As customary with the scientific peer review process,
submissions will be handled as confidential material during the review.

Submissions should contain 6 or fewer U.S. letter pages in PDF format,
including all references, figures and tables. The submissions should not be
anonymous. Papers should use the standard ACM template, available at: more submission guidelines, please visit the
conference website.

The papers accepted to HotMobile 2018 will be publicly available from the
workshop's website for a limited time window, as per ACM's Digital
Library's Policy.
