The Eighth ACM International Conference on
Mobile Computing and Networking

Sponsored by ACM SIGMOBILE

Student Posters

The conference solicits student posters that highlight recent and on-going research by students on mobile computing topics. Areas of interest include those that are listed on the technical paper call for papers. Proposals should be a maximum of two (2) pages in length and, while they don't need to describe completed work, the work should be advanced beyond the initial stages. The first author of all poster submissions must be a student. Poster abstracts will not be published in the proceedings but will instead be published on the web before the conference. Poster submissions will be reviewed. Authors of accepted papers must not submit a poster of the work they present in the conference.

Submissions should be sent by email to Elizabeth Belding-Royer by July 15, 2002.

Why should you submit a poster?

This is a great chance for students to obtain interesting and valuable feedback on on-going work from a knowledgeable crowd at the conference.

What is a poster?

A poster is a 1 meter x 1.25 meter rectangular board on which you can affix visually appealing material that describes your research. How you use this is up to you: you may choose to print out several 8.5"x11" or A4 sheets of paper (e.g., paper copies of overheads) and "tile" the poster board with these pages. Or, you may choose to print a single large sheet of paper describing the work and attach that to the poster board. You may bring your own poster boards if you like. Several document companies like Kinko's produce professional-looking posters from material produced on software like Powerpoint; you may want to use such a facility.

You should prepare the best material (visually appealing and succinct) that effectively communicates your research problem, techniques, and results.

What, when, and where to submit?

If you are a student and are interested in this, then submit the following by July 15, 2002 by email to Elizabeth Belding-Royer:

  1. A maximum two page description (in either postscript, txt, or pdf format only!) describing the research to be presented in the poster. Include the title, authors, and institutional affiliations.
  2. A draft of the poster material (either multiple "tiles" or a single sheet of paper), in pdf or postscript format. Include the title, authors, and institutional affiliations.

Send your submission in one email message with the two parts.

We will select approximately 20 of the most interesting and thought-provoking posters by August 7, 2002 and notify all contact authors. More details will be sent at that time.
