We welcome high quality full and short paper submissions that offer an original contribution relevant to the field of mobile and ubiquitous multimedia. Successful full paper submissions typically represent a significant advance for the field. Short papers offer a focused contribution to the research program. Short papers are not work in progress reports but offer completed, rigorously researched/developed work that makes a significant contribution to the field of mobile and ubiquitous multimedia. Short papers are likely to have a smaller scope of contribution than full papers, but they are expected to make a solid contribution to the field. Paper topics could include, but are not limited to the following:



- Augmented and Virtual Reality systems and applications

- Architectures, systems, and algorithms tackling technical challenges of mobile systems

- Case studies, field trials, and user experience evaluations of new applications and services

- Context-aware and location-based mobile and ubiquitous services

- Metrics and Measures for Mobile and Ubiquitous Systems

- Middleware and distributed computing support for mobile and ubiquitous multimedia

- Mobile and ubiquitous multimedia applications and systems

- Mobile games, entertainment and advertising

- Mobile social network and multimedia services

- Mobile and wearable user interfaces, interaction design and techniques

- Social and privacy implications of mobile and ubiquitous multimedia systems

- Tools and development systems for building mobile and ubiquitous multimedia systems



We welcome submission of high quality papers, either in full paper format (max. 10 pages excluding references) or short paper format (max.

4 pages excluding references), that describe original and unpublished research advancing the state of the art in mobile and ubiquitous multimedia. Papers should be grounded in existing mobile and ubiquitous multimedia literature and knowledge, and should be written for an interdisciplinary mobile and ubiquitous multimedia audience. Papers must be submitted via EasyChair

(https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=mum2017) and follow the SIGCHI Paper Format.

Submissions should not have been previously published or be concurrently under submission elsewhere. Papers must be anonymized. Submitted papers will undergo a rigorous review process, managed by the Technical Program Chairs. Final camera-ready versions of accepted papers must be accompanied by a signed copyright form.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Submission deadline:                               October 13, 2017 (23:59 UTC-11)

Notification of review decisions:           October 27, 2017

Camera ready deadline:                          November 3, 2017

Conference dates:                                    November 26 - November 29, 2017



Online submission:                                   EasyChair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=mum2017)



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, and a doctoral school submission. 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. For

doctoral school submissions, the author can select if s/he wants the

submission to be included.



Posters

-------

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: Hannu Kukka and Andrzej Romanowski ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]:[log in to unmask]>>)



Demos

-----

The MUM 2017 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: Shin'ichi Konomi and Diana Nowacka ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]:[log in to unmask]>>)



Videos

------

The MUM 2017 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

received.

Video format: H.264 encoded MP4, at least 1280px x 720px, at most 5

minutes (2-3 minutes is a more common length)

Chairs: Shin'ichi Konomi and Diana Nowacka ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]:[log in to unmask]>>)



Art Track

---------------

MUM is a distinguished forum for advances in research and technologies

that drive innovation in mobile and multimedia systems, applications,

and services. At MUM academics and practitioners gather to discuss

challenges and achievements from diverse perspectives, in a single track

conference format. This year's conference aims to continue the tradition

of innovation and excellence in research established by previous MUM

conferences.



The Art Track aims to create a dialogue between art and science to

create a space of interdisciplinary inspiration and to foster creativity

and innovation transfer. The Arts Track welcomes submissions from a wide

range of practitioners in areas such as multimedia production,

engineering, research and fine arts, including submissions from

researchers, students and independent practitioners. Each submission

should address a topic within the scope of the MUM conference and find

artistic ways to work with mobile and ubiquitous multimedia.



Submissions will be selected not just for their technological novelty

but for their degree of formal sophistication, their conceptual

creativity, and their engagement with issues of active concern to the

fields of mobile and ubiquitous multimedia art.



Accepted Art Track papers will be published in the ACM digital library,

and the Art Track projects will be exhibited during the conference.

Artists (or their delegates) will need to be available for installation

and bump-out, and for facilitating interaction with their artwork at

scheduled times.

One author of each accepted submission must register for the conference

before the early registration deadline in order for the final paper

version to appear in the conference proceedings.



Art Track submissions contain an abstract that is less than 150 words

long that clearly states the project's contribution to the field.

Moreover, Art Track submission have to contain an illustrative video of

the project showing what visitors of the Art Track exhibition will

expect. Submissions will undergo a review process managed by the Art

Track chairs.



Chairs: Martin Kaltenbrunner & Katrin Wolf ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]:[log in to unmask]>>)



Design Competition

---------------

The theme of the MUM 2017 student design competition is Tangible and

Social. The competition entry consists of a Tangible and Social design

concept for a service or application, in the area of mobile and/or

ubiquitous multimedia.

To 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. Special attention is paid to

how the team has succeeded in involving users in the design, and how the

concept empowers people to use the technology in a creative way.

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.

The submissions should be 4-6 pages (excluding references) in the SIGCHI

Extended Abstracts Format and they should be accompanied by a poster,

both in pdf format. Submissions should be submitted via EasyChair.

Submissions will undergo a jury evaluation process managed by the design

competition chairs. Accepted finalists are expected to bring the

necessary equipment, including the poster and possible demo, to the

conference site with them. Posters and demonstrations will be presented

during the poster and demo session.

Chairs: Jonna Häkkilä and Pradthana Jarusriboonchai ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]:[log in to unmask]>>)



Doctoral School

---------------

MUM 2017 will feature a doctoral consortium for the third 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

situation.

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 2017 poster track. For

accepted doctoral consortium submissions, the author can select if s/he

wants the submission to be included to the conference proceedings.
