MobiSys 2018 -- Call for Papers

MobiSys 2018 seeks to present innovative and significant research on all
aspects of mobile systems, applications, and services. The conference
values technical contributions with working implementations and
practical evaluations. We also welcome work that explores new and
compelling mobile scenarios and applications as long as the work goes
well beyond providing an initial vision.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Experience with mobile applications, networks and systems
- Innovative mobile, mobile sensing, and mobile crowdsourcing apps
- Tools for building and measuring mobile systems
- Innovative wearable or mobile devices
- Novel software architectures for mobile devices
- Data management for mobile applications
- Infrastructure support for mobile computing
- System-level energy management for mobile devices
- Operating systems for mobile devices
- Support for mobile social networking and mobile Web
- Security and privacy in mobile systems
- Systems for location and context sensing and awareness
- Mobile computing support for pervasive computing
- Vehicular and robotic systems
- Systems and networking support for virtual or augmented reality
- Applications of mobile systems in health, sustainability, and other

Non-traditional topics that bring new perspectives to mobile computing
papers whose contributions overlap with work currently under review
elsewhere must not be submitted to MobiSys. Papers whose contributions
overlap with an earlier published paper will be considered only if (1)
the previous paper was published (not just accepted) at a workshop at
least 6 months before our submission date and (2) it adds significant
new contributions over the previous paper. Authors uncertain whether
their submission meets these guidelines should contact the program
chairs. Papers accompanied by nondisclosure agreement forms will not be
considered. Accepted submissions will be treated as confidential prior
to publication; rejected submissions will be permanently treated as

MobiSys uses a double-blind review policy during the initial paper
review. Authors are instructed to not include their names, affiliations
and contact information on the manuscript they submit for review.
Authors should also anonymize the content of their paper to hide their
identity. Reviewers will not know the identity of the authors during the
initial phase of the review process, however, anonymity will expire
after the majority of the reviews have been submitted and preliminary
outcomes decided. The identities of the authors will be revealed to the
reviewers toward the end of the review process. Submissions who are not
properly anonymized will be rejected without being reviewed.

We strongly encourage prospective authors to use past MobiSys
proceedings as a guideline to assess the readiness of their work for
submission. Due to high review load on PC members, low quality or
premature work submitted to the conference is likely to receive a
smaller number of reviews and the reviews may be brief.

As part of the submission process, authors of papers that describe
experiments on human subjects, or that analyze nonpublic data derived
from human subjects (even anonymized data), will be asked to certify
that their work was vetted by an ethics review (e.g., IRB approval). We
expect authors to follow the rules of their host institutions around
data collection and experiments with human subjects.

Selected outstanding papers may be fast-tracked as a special section of
IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing.

Best Paper Award
All papers will be considered for the Best Paper Award. The program
committee will select a number of candidates for the award among
accepted papers, and select one or more award papers prior to the

Video Presentation
The authors of each accepted paper will submit a 1-minute video that
presents their papers' contributions to a general audience. These videos
will be placed on the conference website before the conference, and may
be played during the conference. Some of the videos will be featured on
the social media channels related to the conference.
