Posters

MobiSys seeks proposals for posters describing novel work on mobile systems, applications and services. Posters will be presented during a specially designated session of the conference. The poster session is meant to introduce new or ongoing work and provide opportunities for authors to interact directly with conference attendees. Posters are specially suited for presenting controversial research directions that may generate discussion, or promising ideas not yet validated through extensive evaluation. Awards will be given for the best poster of the session and the best poster presented by a student. Poster submissions must include an extended abstract no longer than one 8.5x11-inch page, including all figures and references. This abstract should be formatted in two columns, single-spaced, with a font no smaller than 10-point. Optionally, submissions may also include an electronic copy of the poster. Please note that easels will be provided at the conference for 3x4 feet posters (approximately 0.75x1.0 meters), and the posters should be sized appropriately. Submissions must be in Adobe PDF. Poster proposals must be submitted electronically by sending the extended abstract and (optionally) the poster as attachments in a single email message to mobisys08_demos@cs.duke.edu. The subject line should read "MOBISYS POSTER SUBMISSION" (in upper-case letters). The body of the email should include, in plain text, the title of the poster and the author list, including affiliations. The extended abstracts of accepted posters will be posted on the conference website, but will not appear in the conference proceedings.

Demonstrations

MobiSys seeks proposals for live demonstrations of mobile computing technologies. Live demos provide an opportunity to give a flavor of real-life applications made possible by your system. Particularly encouraged are the demonstrations that include participation by conference attendees. Research prototypes as well as commercial products are welcome. However, MobiSys is not an appropriate forum for marketing or sales presentations. The presenter is expected to understand the system being demonstrated and explain the technical contributions of the system to the audience. Demonstrations of previously published systems are also welcome. Demonstrations will be selected based on the expected interest from the MobiSys audience. Awards will be given for the best demo of the session and the best demo presented by a student. A demo submission requires only an extended abstract no longer than one 8.5x11-inch page, including all figures and references, describing the demonstration as well as any special requirements (other than a demo booth/table). The extended abstract should be formatted in 8.5x11-inch pages, two columns, single-spaced, with a font no smaller than 10-point. Submissions must be in Adobe PDF. Demo proposals must be submitted electronically by sending the extended abstract as an attachment in an email message to mobisys08_demos@cs.duke.edu. The subject line should read "MOBISYS DEMO SUBMISSION" (in upper-case letters). The body of the email should include, in plain text, the title of the demo and the author list, including affiliations. The extended abstracts of accepted demonstrations will be posted on the conference website, but will not appear in the conference proceedings.
