HotMobile 2008
                      The Ninth Workshop on 
            Mobile Computing, Systems and Applications
              Silverado Resort, Napa Valley, CA, USA
                      February 25-26, 2008


HotMobile 2008, the Ninth 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 position papers that focus primarily on 
applications and systems and that propose new directions of research, 
advocate non-traditional approaches to old (or new) ideas, or generate 
controversy and discussion. We particularly look for position papers 
containing highly original ideas in the following topic areas, although 
papers describing other challenges unique to or exacerbated by mobility 
are also welcome:

* Operating system and distributed systems support for mobile computing
* Coordination, aggregation, and spontaneous interaction of mobile
* Novel applications and environments supporting mobility
* HCI issues related to mobile computing
* Security and privacy of mobile computing
* Management, configuration, and deployment of systems supporting

Submissions describing new lower-level technologies are welcome if they 
focus on how the technology is being used or integrated into a system 
or application.

HotMobile 2008 will be a highly interactive workshop. Submissions will
judged based upon originality, technical merit, topical relevance, and 
likelihood of leading to insightful discussion at the workshop.

To encourage an atmosphere conducive to participation, attendance will
limited to 70 participants. Authors of submitted papers and accepted
proposals will be given first priority, with others able to register 
on a space-available basis.

Paper submissions are due on Oct 16, 2007 at 23:59:59 EST. 
Submissions should contain 6 or fewer U.S. letter pages in PDF format. 
Papers should be single column using 11pt font. The conference
will be published by the ACM. Preliminary proceedings will be made
to workshop participants online ahead of the workshop. Printed
will be published and mailed to participants after the workshop. 
As is customary, papers must not have been published elsewhere and may
be simultaneously under submission at another venue.  

Poster and demo submissions are due on January 14th, 2008 at 23:59:59
Submissions must include an extended abstract limited to one
8.5x11-inch page in 12pt font.

The important dates, as well as the organizing and program committee
members are listed below.

We look forward to seeing you at HotMobile 2008.
