MobiSys is a premier venue for researchers working in the area of mobile and wireless systems, middleware, services, and applications. The previous fourteen MobiSys conferences were very successful, with strong refereed paper presentations, demonstrations, poster sessions, and workshops. Workshop papers will be included with the MobiSys proceedings and posted in the ACM Digital Library.

We solicit workshop proposals on new and emerging topics in the general area of mobile and wireless systems, services, and applications.

Workshops are scheduled for June 19th and June 23rd, 2017. The ideal workshop proposal will focus on a timely and emerging topic, and be able to attract a number of interesting and high- quality contributions that spark discussions in an informal setting. The goal is to stimulate interactive conversations and inspire new research ideas.
