> September 28 | Notification

> October 10   | Camera Ready

> December 5-8 | Conference


MUM is an interdisciplinary forum for advances in research of mobile and 
ubiquitous multimedia systems, applications, and services. At MUM, 
academics and practitioners gather to discuss challenges and 
achievements in this field from diverse perspectives, such as 
interaction techniques, user research, system development, software 
solutions, and devices. This edition of MUM aims to continue the 
tradition of innovation and excellence in research established by 
previous MUM conferences.


This year, we have all been confronted with significant changes caused 
by the corona virus outbreak. Based on vaccination data coming from 
Europe, the USA, and other countries, we are confident that MUM 2021 
will be able to be organized physically. However, we plan for it to be a 
hybrid in-person event with support for remote participation for those 
who might not be able to travel to Belgium. We are currently considering 
which solution to use to be as inclusive as possible to those who will 
prefer to present and participate remotely. We will monitor the 
unfolding of the events in the short term and update the conference 
modality accordingly.


We welcome submissions of high-quality papers that offer original and 
unpublished contributions relevant to the field of mobile and ubiquitous 
multimedia. Paper topics include, but are not limited to, the following:


* Architectures, systems, algorithms and other constructions tackling 
relevant technical challenges

* Augmented, mixed, and virtual reality systems and applications

* 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 
systems

* Middleware and distributed computing support for mobile and ubiquitous 
multimedia

* Novel applications for mobile and ubiquitous gaming, entertainment, 
networking, and advertising

* Privacy and security related issues to multimedia systems

* Social implications of mobile and ubiquitous multimedia systems

* Tools and development environments for building mobile, wearable, and 
ubiquitous multimedia systems

* User interfaces, interaction design, and interaction techniques for 
mobile and ubiquitous systems

* Papers should be grounded in existing literature and knowledge, and 
should be written for an * interdisciplinary audience. Papers must be 
submitted via EasyChair at the latest by August 6th, 2021 * AoE. An 
application for inclusion of the conference proceeding in the ACM 
International Conference * Proceeding Series is currently being 
processed.


# Submission and Templates

The correct template for submissions is the ACM Primary Article Template 
in single-column format (in PDF format). Submissions should be prepared 
using either the single column Word Submission Template or the single 
column LaTeX template (using the “manuscript, review, anonymous” style 
available in the template). Submissions can be of variable length. Paper 
length must be based on the weight of the contribution with 16 pages 
(excluding references) in single column format being valued as long 
papers in past editions and 7 pages (excluding references) in single 
column format being valued as short papers in past editions.


Successful submissions of around 16 pages typically represent 
significant empirical, theoretical or methodological advances in the 
field.

Successful submissions of around 7 pages offer more focused 
contributions; they are not intended to be work in progress reports but, 
instead, they offer complete, rigorously developed work, with a solid 
contribution to the field. Short papers have a smaller scope or more 
focused contribution than long papers.

Submissions should not have been previously published or be concurrently 
under submission. Papers must be anonymized. Submitted papers will 
undergo a rigorous double-blind review process managed by the Program 
Chairs. Each submitted paper will be reviewed by at least three 
reviewers, chosen from the pool of members of the Program Committee 
listed below. This pool of reviewers features both experts from the 
previous edition, as well as new researchers to address new emerging 
research areas and underrepresented communities. Papers will be assigned 
through a bidding process.


Authors are encouraged to submit an optional video of maximum 5 minutes 
to support their submission. To ensure videos can be viewed by all 
reviewers, authors should preferably use the H.264 encoding and the MP4 
file format. To accommodate the upload limits of EasyChair (max. 50mb 
per file), the bit rate of videos can be lowered.


# Reviewing process

There will be a single round of reviews with three potential outcomes: 
desk-rejects (papers that are significantly out of scope, not written in 
English, etc.), rejection, and conditional acceptance. No rebuttal phase 
is planned. Authors of conditionally accepted papers will find in the 
reviews a list of revisions and requested changes they need to satisfy 
to have their paper be officially accepted into the program. At least 
one author from each accepted paper must register to the conference.
