MobiSys 2004 seeks to present innovative, significant research
in the area of mobile systems.  This will be a 2.5-day conference,
featuring refereed paper presentations, tutorials, demos, videos,
and poster sessions.  This conference builds on the success of
the first MobiSys conference held in San Francisco,, which featured 23 high
caliber research papers and many interesting posters and
demonstrations.  The conference particularly values the practical
experience gained from designing, building and using mobile systems,
applications, and services.


The conference addresses broad systems issues in mobile computing.
Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Design, implementation, and evaluation of mobile systems
* Middleware and service architectures for mobile applications
* Data management for mobile applications
* Disconnected and weakly connected operation
* Proxies and data adaptation
* Mobile agents
* Operating systems for small devices
* Infrastructure support for mobility
* Security, privacy, authorization, and billing
* System-level energy management for mobile devices
* Wearable and handheld devices in the context of system design
* Personal mobility
* Personal-area networks and systems
* Resource discovery of mobile services
* Systems for location awareness and determination
* Application interfaces and services supporting the mobile user
* Systems support for mobile robots
* Experience with mobile systems

The ideal MobiSys submission should present novel research that
has resulted in the implementation or evaluation of running systems.
Papers that describe the design of and experience with mobile system
architectures are favored over those narrowly focused on low-level
components such as the device hardware or the routing, link, or
physical network layers.  Please feel free to contact the Program
Chairs at [log in to unmask] to determine appropriateness.


An award will be given at the conference for the best paper.


Submissions should be full papers, 12_14 single-spaced 8.5" × 11"
pages, including figures, tables, and references, two-column format,
using 10-point type on 12-point (single-spaced) leading.  Submissions
will be judged on originality, significance, interest, clarity,
relevance, and correctness.  Accepted papers may be shepherded
through an editorial review process by a member of the program committee.

MobiSys, like most conferences and journals, requires that papers must
not be submitted simultaneously to any other conference or publication,
that submissions must not be previously published, and that accepted
papers must not be subsequently published elsewhere.  Papers
accompanied by non-disclosure agreement forms are not acceptable
and will be returned to the author(s) unread.  All submissions will
be held in the highest confidentiality prior to publication in the
Proceedings, both as a matter of policy and in accord with the
U.S. Copyright Act of 1976.


Authors are required to submit full papers by October 31, 2003.
All submissions to MobiSys 2004 must be electronic, in PDF or PostScript.
Detailed submission instructions will be posted on the conference web


Do you have interesting work you would like to share, or a cool idea
that is not ready to be published?  Poster sessions are for you!
Poster sessions, scheduled during the technical sessions, introduce
new or ongoing work.  Demos and videos of working systems and
applications are also encouraged.  The MobiSys audience will provide
valuable discussion and feedback.  We are particularly interested in
presentations of student work.  To submit a poster, demo, or video,
please consult the conference web site for instructions.  Proposals
should be received by March 5, 2004.
