MUM 2019 - Preliminary Call for Papers


18th International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Multimedia (MUM 2019)

Pisa, Italy, 26-29 November, 2019

Organized by the Human Interfaces in Information Systems (HIIS) 
laboratory of the Italian National Research Council (CNR) in Pisa, 
Italy, in cooperation with ACM SIGCHI.


MUM 2019, the 18th International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous
Multimedia, will be held on 26-29 November 2019 at the CNR Area of 
Research in Pisa, Italy.

The International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Multimedia (MUM) 
is a leading annual international conference which provides a forum for 
presenting the latest research results on mobile and ubiquitous 
multimedia. The conference brings together experts from both academia 
and industry for a fruitful exchange of ideas and discussion on future 
challenges, in a comfortable and effective single-track conference 
format. This year's conference continues the tradition of innovation and 
excellence established by previous MUM conferences. In addition to the 
peer-reviewed accepted papers, the conference program will include 
keynote presentations, posters, demos and a video track. The conference 
will also have a co-located doctoral school. The technical program will 
be complemented by social events to facilitate informal discussions and 
networking among the conference attendees and invited guests.

Conference topics include, but are not limited to the following:
-Augmented and Mixed Reality systems and applications
-Architectures, systems, algorithms and other constructions tackling 
relevant technical challenges
-Case studies, field trials, or user experience evaluations of new 
applications and services
-Conceptualizations and theorizations of the field
-Context-aware and location-based mobile and ubiquitous services
-Metrics and measures for evaluating and testing mobile and ubiquitous 
-Middleware and distributed computing support for mobile and ubiquitous 
-Novel applications for mobile and ubiquitous gaming, entertainment, 
networking, advertising, etc.
-Social and privacy implications of mobile and ubiquitous multimedia systems
-Tools and development environments for building mobile and ubiquitous 
multimedia systems
-User interfaces, interaction design and interaction techniques for 
mobile and ubiquitous systems

We welcome submissions of high-quality papers that offer original and 
unpublished contributions relevant to the field of mobile and ubiquitous 
multimedia, either in full paper format (max. 10 pages excluding 
references) or short paper format (max. 4 pages excluding references). 
Successful full paper submissions typically represent a significant 
empirical, theoretical or methodological advances in the field. Short 
papers offer more focused contributions; they are not work in progress 
reports but offer completed, rigorously researched/developed work with a 
solid contribution to the field. Short papers are likely to have a 
smaller scope of contribution than full papers.

Papers must be submitted via EasyChair 
( and follow the SIGCHI 
Paper Format.


Submission deadline: August 27, 2019

Notification of review decisions: September 30, 2019
