SIGMOBILE was formed in 1996 as an
international ACM community of researchers and practitioners
- Perform research in the theory and practice of all areas
related to the mobility of systems, users, data, and computing;
- Expand the evolution of portable computers and wireless networks;
- Support the convergence of mobility, computing,
and information organization; and
- Improve access, services, management, and applications
for mobile computing and communications.
SIGMOBILE's quarterly journal, Mobile Computing and
Communications Review (MC2R), is the leading
publication in this rapidly evolving field. The Proceedings
of the MobiCom International Conference on Mobile Computing
and Networking summarize the year's most advanced and
significant work. SIGMOBILE also publishes Wireless
Networks: The Journal of Mobile Communication, Computation
and Information, and Mobile Networks and Applications:
The Journal of SPECIAL ISSUES on Mobility of Systems,
Users, Data and Computing.
The world's mobile computing and communications community
convenes every year at MobiCom, the International Conference
on Mobile Computing and Networking. SIGMOBILE also organizes
and sponsors MobiHoc, the International Symposium on
Mobile Ad Hoc Networking and Computing;
MobiSys, the International Conference on Mobile Systems,
Applications, and Services (jointly with the USENIX Association);
and SenSys, the ACM Conference on Embedded Networked Sensor Systems
(jointly with ACM SIGARCH, SIGCOMM, SIGMETRICS, and SIGOPS).
In addition, SIGMOBILE each year sponsors
and promotes several workshops and tutorials on timely
and important topics.
SIGMOBILE recognizes achievements in mobile computing
and communications through awards including
the SIGMOBILE Outstanding
Contribution Award, the SIGMOBILE Distinguished Service
Award, the MobiCom Best Student Paper award
and the MobiSys Best Paper Award.
SIGMOBILE is a not-for-profit, international association
of academic researchers, industry scientists and developers,
government researchers, and educators.
