Call for Posters

Following the long tradition of poster presentations, ACM MobiCom 2021 solicits submissions for the Posters Program that feature early research work and preliminary results. The MobiCom 2021 Poster Session will provide an excellent opportunity for initial feedback on your early research results and give your ongoing projects early visibility. Student authors are strongly encouraged to include their poster submissions in the ACM MobiCom Student Research Competition.

We invite submissions on all areas of mobile computing and wireless networking research, including but not limited to:

  • Fundamental understanding of mobile computing and wireless networking
  • Applications of machine learning to mobile/wireless research
  • Backscatter communication and wireless power
  • Mobile edge computing and cloud computing for mobile services
  • Embedded and energy-harvesting systems
  • Experimental platforms and infrastructures for wireless/mobile research
  • Implanted and wearable computing
  • Intersection between mobile/wireless research, cloud computing, and software-defined networking
  • Long-range/Low-power wide-area wireless networking
  • Low-latency networking
  • Machine-to-machine communications
  • Millimeter wave and terahertz communications
  • Mobile data science & analysis
  • Mobile health
  • Mobile web, video, virtual reality, and other applications
  • Next-generation 5G mobile networks and beyond
  • Novel applications of wireless signals
  • Performance evaluation of mobile and wireless networks, protocols, and systems
  • Robotic and drone-based networking
  • Security and privacy challenges/solutions for mobile and/or wireless systems
  • Sensing with radio, light, sound, and acoustics
  • Ubiquitous computing and mobile human computer interaction
  • Visible light communications
  • Wireless localization and tracking

Poster Submission Instructions

The posters should be submitted via hotCRP:

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. Any submission should include also the following:

  • Whether you would like the submission to be considered for the Student Research Competition.
  • 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.

Note that SRC submissions are required to have an abstract of no more than 800 words. Please refer to the call for SRC contributions for details on the competition.

All poster submissions will be reviewed by the Posters committee. 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.
