The MobiCom demo session solicits the submission of research, platform, and product demonstrations and exhibits from both academia and industry.

Demonstrations should showcase innovative research or product prototypes, platforms, and applications in the areas of mobile computing and wireless and mobile networking. We strongly encourage live​ demos based on novel applications in the domain of mobile computing and wireless systems. We also welcome live​ demos reproducing evaluation results of papers appearing in ACM Mobicom 2018 or past editions as well as other relevant venues.

Please refer to the main conference introduction and CFP for the general areas that are relevant to the typical MobiCom audience.

   Why should you submit a Demo or Exhibit? 

Presenting a demo is a great opportunity, especially for students and industry, to obtain valuable feedback on ongoing research from the knowledgeable crowd at the conference. Accepted demos will be posted on the conference website and published as a three-page abstract for the archived conference proceedings and the ACM digital library.

The MobiCom 2018 Demo committee will review all submissions to select the accepted demos. All accepted demos will be considered for the Best Demo Award. A committee will decide the winner on-site after evaluating all demo presentations.

   Where and What to Submit? 

Please submit a proposal of your demo or exhibit at It should be a summary or extended abstract describing the research to be presented, maximum 3 pages in US letter size (8.5 x 11 inches) with fonts no smaller than 10 point size, in PDF file format. Please ensure that the proposal includes:

  • The names, affiliations, and email addresses of the authors.
  • Equipment to be used for the demo. Check default setup below.
  • Space needed and setup time required.
  • Additional facilities needed including estimated power connections needed for the demo, special environments and tools, Internet access, physical space requirements, etc.

   Default Setup 

The following default setup will be available for each demo:

  • A single 6 x 2.5 ft table
  • Extension power cable/multi-point (the organizers would highly appreciate if suitable power adapters are brought by the participants. India uses a 220V/5A power supply with Indian power sockets though in some cases the power sockets might allow for US style power plugs).
  • A single easel for displaying any related poster that must be of size 3x4ft in portrait mode.

   Important Notes 

AUTHORS TAKE NOTE: The official publication date is the date the proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of your conference. The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work. (For those rare conferences whose proceedings are published in the ACM Digital Library after the conference is over, the official publication date remains the first day of the conference.)
