Call for Workshops

ACM MobiHoc 2016 will be held in Paderborn, Germany from July 5–8, 2016. In addition to the main program, the conference will feature a set of workshops.

The goal of the workshops is to explore emerging research topics of interest, and to provide a forum for authors to present early research results on these topics. We would like to have a limited number of workshops, with a high quality program consisting of contributed papers and invited papers. Contributions to the workshops would be for presenting novel ideas in a less formal setting, possibly more focused on a particular topic than the regular conference sessions do. We seek proposals from individuals and teams interested in organizing strong workshops.

Each workshop will be a full day, with 4 sessions of 1½ hours each. The dates for paper submission, notification, and camera-ready version would preferably be coordinated across the selected workshop. Papers submitted to the individual workshops will likely be due in March 2016, with the camera-ready version due in April. The workshop proposal, in plain text or PDF, should provide the following information:

  1. Title, scope, and topics of the workshop.
  2. Names, addresses, and affiliation of Workshop organizers.
  3. Tentative committee lists (organizers, steering committee if any, etc.).
  4. Workshop format planned (papers, demos, panels, etc.).
  5. Past history of the workshop (where held, number of papers, number of participants).
  6. Rationale – why is the topic current and important; why would the workshop attract a significant number of submissions of good quality.

Please include a draft call for papers, if available. Workshop proposals should include a list of important dates to approximately coincide with the main conference.
