SIGMOBILE Membership

ACM SIGMOBILE is the primary international organization dedicated to addressing the latest developments in the area of mobility of systems, users, data, and computing. The group's technical scope reflects the symbiosis of portable computers and wireless networks, together with the convergence of mobility, computing, and information organization, its access, services, management, and applications.

Who are SIGMOBILE's Members?

ACM SIGMOBILE has members from around the world, from academic organizations, industry research and development, government, and other interested individuals. Members of SIGMOBILE are active in the development of new technologies and techniques for mobile and wireless computing and communications.
