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. In addition to the peer-reviewed accepted papers, the
conference program will include keynote presentations, posters, demos,
an industry track, and a doctoral consortium.

Topics for Industry Track Papers, Demos, Posters and Doctoral Consortium
submissions could include, but are not limited to the following:
- Mobile and ubiquitous multimedia applications and systems
- Mobile user interfaces, interaction design and techniques
- Mobile games, entertainment and advertising
- Mobile social network and multimedia services
- Context-aware and location-based mobile and ubiquitous services
- Mobile Augmented Reality systems and applications
- Architectures, systems, and algorithms tackling technical challenges
of mobile systems
- Middleware and distributed computing support for mobile and ubiquitous
multimedia
- Tools and development systems for building mobile and ubiquitous
multimedia systems
- Case studies, field trials, and user experience evaluations of new
applications and services
- Social and privacy implications of mobile and ubiquitous multimedia
systems

Industry Track Papers:
======================
The Industry Track is targeted towards practitioners and professionals
working in the field of mobile and ubiquitous multimedia. Industry Track
papers should show the application, commercial aspects and practical
challenges in the areas listed above. Of special interest are also
real-world examples that illustrate, e.g.: experiences in deploying and
running such systems, lessons learnt in developing such systems and
differences between research and practice. The difference to the full
and short papers in the scientific track is in the practical, rather
than strictly scientific, nature of the submissions. We welcome
submission of high quality papers, either in full paper format (max 10
pages ACM format) or short paper format (max 4 pages ACM format). Papers
should be written for an interdisciplinary mobile and ubiquitous
multimedia audience.

Demos:
======
The MUM 2012 Demonstrations 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 mentioned above.
We want to see and try 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. Demonstration submissions should have 2-4 pages (ACM format)
and they should be accompanied by a one page specification of the
infrastructural requirements.

Posters:
========
The MUM 2012 Poster track provides an opportunity for researchers and
practitioners to show and discuss novel mobile and ubiquitous multimedia
services, interactions and systems that have not been fully designed,
implemented or tested but show great promise; provoking topics;
preliminary results; summaries of small-scale studies, etc. Posters
provide the opportunity for researchers to get feedback on early-stage
work, discuss potential collaborations and discuss the burning issues in
MUM in an informal manner with the larger MUM community. Poster
submissions should have 2 pages (ACM format) and they should be
accompanied by a first version of the poster.

Doctoral Consortium:
====================
Graduate students within different areas of mobile and ubiquitous
multimedia are invited to take part in the Doctoral Consortium. This
will be the place where lively and useful discussions enable students to
receive suggestions about their on-going research and allow more
experienced participants to encounter some fresh ideas and view some of
the new trends in the field. The Doctoral Consortium provides an
opportunity for doctoral students to discuss their research both with
other students and with leading experts within the field. The consortium
will take the form of a workshop where established MUM scholars take
active part as discussants. The purpose is for students to receive
constructive feedback on their thesis work so far, get advice about
future developments, and share ideas and experiences with students in
related areas.
