SPECIAL PAPERS FOR CHALLENGES
MobiCom solicits short
papers (8 pages max.) that challenge the mobile computing community with
new technologies or visionary applications. Such papers should provide
stimulating ideas or visions that may open up exciting avenues of mobile
computing research. Papers will be reviewed and should be submitted using
the normal procedure. However, the papers should be clearly identified
as intended for the Challenges session.
All paper submissions will
be handled electronically. Authors should prepare a PostScript or Portable
Document Format (PDF) version of their full paper. Papers must meet the
All submitted papers will be
judged based on their quality through double-blind reviewing, where the
identities of the authors are withheld from the reviewers. Authors' names
must not appear in the paper or in the PostScript/PDF file.
No longer than 15 pages ( 8
pages for Challenges papers).
Fit properly on US Letter-sized
paper (8.5x11 inches).
PostScript version 2 or later,
or Portable Document Format (PDF).
Use only Computer Modern or
standard Adobe printer fonts (i.e.,Courier, Times, Roman, or Helvetica).
Other fonts may be used but must be included in the PostScript/PDF file.
Please direct any questions

The extended paper submission
deadline is February 25, 2000. There will be no extensions granted past
Proposals for tutorials
are solicited. Evaluation of proposals will be based on the expertise and
experience of the instructors, and on the relevance of the subject matter.
Tutorial topics that encompass the systems aspects of mobile computing
and/or practical experiences in building/deploying such systems are of
particular interest. Potential instructors are requested to submit a tutorial
proposal of at most 5 pages, including a biographical sketch, to the Tutorial
Co-Chairs, Venkat Padmanabhan (firstname.lastname@example.org)
and Nigel Davies (email@example.com),
by February 18, 2000.
Panels are solicited that
examine innovative, controversial, or otherwise provocative issues of interest.
Panel proposals should not exceed 3 pages, including biographical sketches
of the panelists. Potential panel organizers should send the proposal to
the Panels Co-chairs Pravin Bhagwat (firstname.lastname@example.org)
and Andrew Campbell (email@example.com)
by Februray 21, 2000.
Informal proposals for
research demos are solicited. Proposals will be reviewed and selection
made based on value to the community and interest level for the conference.
Proposals should not exceed 3 pages and should include: the focus area
in mobility, such as mobile networks, applications, interfaces etc., the
technologies involved in the research, specific technical and equipment
requirements for the demo, demo layout, space required to set up the demo
and possible interactions (interoperability) with other proposed demonstrations
(e.g., Mobile IP implementations). Send proposals to the Demo Chair: Ronald
Papers with a student as
a primary author will be considered for a cash award of $500 US Dollars
for the best student paper competition. Student authors must clearly indicate
with their submission that they would like to be considered for this award.
