ACM MobiCom 2018 solicits submissions for Posters Program that feature early research work and preliminary results. The MobiCom 2018 Poster Session will provide an excellent opportunity for initial feedback on your early research results and give your ongoing projects early visibility. The presenters are strongly encouraged to include their poster submission in the ACM MobiCom Student Research Competition.

To ensure maximum visibility and to garner high interest in the Poster Session from all MobiCom attendees, each accepted poster will have the opportunity to deliver a fast elevator pitch. Each poster presenter will get one-minute to overview and stir interest in her/his poster (3 slides presented in PechaKucha mode - The presenters can also link their project webpage and other details, such as URL to a short video presentation, to the MobiCom Posters & Student Research Competition (SRC) program page.

Posters are solicited in all areas of mobile computing and wireless networking. Particular areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Architectures, algorithms, and protocols for 5G mobile networks
  • Communications, computing and storage solutions in machine-to-machine and device-to-device networks
  • Internet of Things (IoT) and Cyber Physical Systems (CPS)

   Poster Submission Instructions 

  • All posters should be submitted by the submission site :
  • The submission should be formatted as a paper or extended abstract describing the research to be presented in the poster and should be submitted as a PDF file of at most 3 pages, including all figures and references.
  • Paper text blocks must follow ACM guidelines: double-column US letter size of 8.5 x 11 inches with fonts no smaller than 10 point size. The extended abstract must include the authors' names, affiliations, and email addresses. You may find these LaTeX and MS-Word templates (available at useful in complying with the above requirements, but as an author you bear the final responsibility to verify (manually or through the above online paper checker) that your submission is format-compliant.
  • Indicate whether you would like the submission to be considered for the Student Research Competition(SRC). If you would like your submission to be considered for the SRC, there is the additional need to indicate whether any of the student authors is an undergraduate student. Note that if any of the authors is a graduate student, then the submission will be considered under the graduate category. Thus, indicate your correct identifier by adding [SRC/Undergraduate] or [SRC/Graduate] in the submission title of the submission site for consideration in SRC.
  • All poster submissions will be reviewed by the Posters committee. If your submission is selected for the Posters Session, you will receive information regarding the size of the poster board, etc., so that you can prepare and produce your poster. Easels and white boards will be provided by the Conference. Once your poster is accepted, we will include the abstract of your poster on the conference website and publish it in the main proceedings and the ACM digital library.

       Important Dates 

    Poster submission deadline:   August 10, 2018 (11:59 PM EST)
    Notification: August 16, 2018

       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.)
