App Contest

Call for App Contest

MobiCom 2022 is pleased to organize the 7th Mobile App Competition in conjunction with the main conference. The competition is for novel and innovative mobile applications utilizing any computing architecture (stand-alone, client/server, client/proxy/server, peer-to-peer/ad-hoc, cloud/mobile, etc). It is intended as a platform-neutral contest. Applications can be developed for any truly mobile device such as a smartphone, tablet, wearable, or a non-tethered AR/VR device. They can be built on any software platform including Android, iOS, Tizen, Windows, Harmony OS, Blackberry OS 10, and HTML5.

To participate in the competition, you are required to submit a one-page proposal, a video demo, and your app binary for evaluation. All applications must be demonstrated on real devices and on off-the-shelf operating systems, i.e., the phone should not be jailbroken or rooted. Network services that are part of the application should also embody real services, with no mock-up components.

Only a selected set of finalists advance to enter the last phase of selecting the three top winners. The winner apps will be promoted on the MobiCom website and get a prize during the conference. More details about the requirements and evaluation criteria are available as a pdf file here.

Finalists are required to register and attend the conference in order to be considered by the jury for first, second and third place winners.

All submissions should be sent to
