(NEW!) Special Papers for the Mobicom "Next Century Challenges" Session
MobiCom solicits short papers (8 pages max.) that challenge the mobile computing
community with new technologies or visionary applications. Such papers should
provide stimulating ideas or visions that may open up exciting avenues of
mobile computing research. Papers will be reviewed and should be submitted
as regular MobiCom submissions (although they do not have to be as technical
as regular submissions). However, the cover letter that accompanies the
submission should be clearly marked for "MobiCom Challenges".
How to Submit
All paper submissions will be handled electronically. Authors should E-mail a PostScript version of their full paper to email@example.com.
In order to ensure that the PostScript versions of the papers can be printed,
authors should be careful that their papers meet the following restrictions:
- PostScript version 2 or later
- No longer than 15 pages
- Fits properly on US letter size paper (8.5 X 11 inches)
only Computer Modern or standard Adobe printer fonts (i.e. Courier, Times,
Roman, or Helvetica); other fonts may be used but must be included in the
In addition, authors should
separately E-mail the title, author names and full address, and abstract
of their paper to the Program Chairs, Tomasz Imielinski (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Martha Steenstrup (email@example.com).
All submitted papers will be judged based on their quality through double-blind
reviewing, where the identities of the authors are withheld from the reviewers.
Authors names should not appear in the paper or in the PostScript file.
Panels are solicited that examine innovative, controversial, or otherwise
provocative issues of interest. Panel proposals should not exceed 3 pages,
including biographical sketches of the panelists. Potential panel organizers
should contact the Panels Chair, Roy Want (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Papers with a student as a primary author will be considered for a cash award
of US$500 for the best student paper competition. Student authors should
clearly indicate with their submission that they would like to be considered
for this award.
Submissions due: January 15, 1999
