Call for Posters

MobiSys 2019 calls for posters describing novel work not published before. The poster track is meant to introduce new or ongoing work and provide opportunities for authors to interact directly with conference attendees. Posters are especially suited for presenting controversial research directions that may generate discussion, or promising ideas not yet validated through extensive evaluation. All posters will be presented during a specially designated poster session of the conference.

Persistent Exhibition NEW!!

In addition to the regular poster session, MobiSys 2019 provides the poster authors with an option to participate in an additional presentation format--persistent exhibition. Poster authors are highly encouraged to participate in the persistent exhibition as they would benefit from extended visibility and interaction during the conference. Poster authors who opted in to the persistent exhibition will be invited to keep their posters set up during the main conference program and interactively present their posters at certain (likely multiple) break times. The persistent exhibition will be set up at a highly visible and accessible location at the conference venue. In order to preserve the authors’ privileges to attend regular sessions, authors are expected to be with their own posters and interactively present only at break times between sessions. Presentation is not expected when a session is in progress, so that the authors may (and should!) attend the session. Each poster in the persistent exhibition may be scheduled for presentation on single or multiple days during the main conference program, depending on the number of participating posters and the space availability. Detailed schedule of persistent exhibition will be announced once the actual number of participating posters is determined.

Opting in to the persistent exhibition is entirely up to the author’s choice. The poster submission form will include an optional field indicating the author’s intent to participate in the persistent exhibition. Regardless of the persistent exhibition option, all posters will be invited to the regular poster session by default. Not opting in to the persistent exhibition will not negatively impact the chance of acceptance of a submitted poster. However, opting in to the persistent exhibition may be acknowledged when selecting the best poster. The poster co-chairs reserve the right to cancel the persistent exhibition format if very few submissions choose this option.

Submission Guidelines

Poster submissions must include an extended abstract no longer than two 8.5x11-inch pages, including all figures and references. This abstract should be formatted in two columns, single-spaced, with a font no smaller than 10-point. The abstract title should begin with "Poster:". Please do not anonymize your submissions. Please use the same LaTeX template for full papers of Mobisys 2019 for the extended abstract. Submissions must be in Adobe PDF format. Authors remain responsible for checking that their resulting PDF meets the MobiSys 2019 formatting guidelines.

Easels will be provided at the conference for 3x4 feet posters (approximately 0.75x1.0 meters), and the posters should be sized appropriately. Specifically, posters should be of A0 size (841 x 1189 mm / 33.1 x 46.8 in). Poster proposals should be submitted through the following URL:

The accepted posters will be posted on the official conference website and will be included in the conference proceeding and the ACM Digital Library. At least one author of an accepted poster is expected to register for the conference and present the poster in person.

Best Poster Award

All poster submissions will be considered for the Best Poster Award. Opting in to the persistent exhibition may be acknowledged when selecting the best poster. An independent review committee will select the winners at the conference.
