MobiCom 2019

Oct 21-25, Los Cabos, Mexico

Call for Demos and Posters

The MobiCom demo and poster sessions solicit the submission of research, platform, and product demonstrations and posters 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 2019 or past editions as well as other relevant venues.

The MobiCom 2019 Poster Session will provide an excellent opportunity for initial feedback on your early research results and give your ongoing projects early visibility. ACM MobiCom 2019 will host an ACM Student Research Competition (SRC) alongside the Posters Program. SRC offers graduate and undergraduate students an opportunity to present their original research, and get feedback. The presenters are strongly encouraged to include their poster submission for the SRC.

The MobiCom 2019 Demo and Poster committee will review all submissions to select the accepted demos and posters. All accepted submissions will be considered for Best Demo and Best Poster Awards. A committee will decide the winner on-site after evaluating all presentations.

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

Can I also include a poster when presenting the demo?
