Call for Papers

ACM MobiHoc is a premier conference with a highly selective single-track technical program dedicated to addressing the challenges emerging from dynamic networks and computing. Work that presents new performance evaluation methods and algorithms and obtains fundamental insights into computer and networked systems is encouraged.

The specific areas of interest include methodologies, formalisms, algorithms and systems for:

  • Dynamic networks broadly defined, such as communication, wireless, social, energy and transportation networks
  • Analytical modeling techniques and model validation
  • Performance, scalability, power and reliability analysis
  • Capacity planning, resource allocation, run time management and scheduling
  • Anomaly detection, system measurement, monitoring and forecasting
  • Routing, scheduling, resource allocation, and energy efficiency
  • Scaling laws and fundamental limits
  • Communication and networking aspects of cyber-physical systems
  • Trust, security, and privacy
  • Quality of service, total cost of ownership and pricing
  • Applications of game theory, economics and control theory to dynamic networks
  • Big data and machine learning in the context of dynamic networks
  • Applications, middleware, transport, network, and MAC protocols
  • Measurements from deployed and experimental systems

All papers submitted to the conference will be considered for a Best Paper Award.

All submissions will be reviewed using a double-blind review process. The identity of authors and referees will not be revealed to each other. To ensure a blind review, the authors' names and affiliations should not appear in the paper or the pdf file; bibliographic references should be made in a way that preserves author anonymity; acknowledgments and support information should not be included. In case there is a need to refer to a technical report that includes, for example, proofs, an anonymous link should be provided (for example, using Dropbox).

Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings published by the ACM. Warning: It is ACM policy not to allow double submissions, where the same paper is submitted to more than one conference/journal concurrently. Any double submissions detected will be immediately rejected from all conferences/journals involved.
