About MobiCom

MobiCom, the Annual International Conference on Mobile Computing and Networking, has been held every year since 1995. The conference serves as the premier international forum addressing networks, systems, algorithms, and applications that support the symbiosis of mobile computers and wireless networks. The conference covers all areas of mobile computing and mobile and wireless networking at the link layer and above. Previous MobiCom conferences have been held in locations around the world:

The conference regularly attracts over 500 of the world's top researchers, practitioners, students, and executives during the week of MobiCom, who are active in bringing about the future of mobile computing and networking.

 The Conference Scope

The explosive growth of wide-area cellular systems and local area wireless networks, and the emergence of home area radio networks and personal area body networks, are just the beginning of "The Wireless Revolution." The ultimate goal of uncompromised connectivity and performance for mobile computing devices requires that we meet the challenge of creating fully integrated, seamless, fault-tolerant, and heterogeneous networks composed of fully distributed, energy efficient, and ubiquitous mobile computing platforms.

The realization that wireless connectivity profoundly affects the way we compute, communicate, and interact motivates us to better comprehend all aspects of the enabling underlying systems and the interactions between them. Making truly tetherless computing possible demands that we carefully evaluate, enhance, and perhaps re-design our networks, systems, algorithms, and applications.

The technical program of the conference is highly selective, based on detailed reviews and discussions by an outstanding technical program committee. A number of social and technical events, such as speeches by visionary and informed leaders in the field, panels on timely and controversial topics, tutorials on the basics and advances in the field, and workshops focused on the pressing issues of the day, provide ample opportunities for learning, educating, debating, and exchanging information between users, providers, and researchers.

 About SIGMOBILE and ACM

The annual MobiCom conference series is sponsored by ACM SIGMOBILE, the Association for Computing Machinery's Special Interest Group on Mobility of Systems, Users, Data, and Computing. Founded in 1947, ACM is the world's first educational and scientific computing society. Today, ACM serves a membership of more than 80,000 computing professionals in more than 100 countries in all areas of industry, academia, and government.

The spectrum of topics addressed by ACM SIGMOBILE share one common theme: mobility. The group's technical scope reflects the emerging symbiosis of portable computers and wireless networks, addressing the convergence of mobility, computing, and information organization, its access, services, management, and applications. Members of ACM SIGMOBILE are active in the development of new technologies and techniques for mobile and wireless computing and communications.

SIGMOBILE has members from around the world, from academic organizations, industry research and development, government, and other interested individuals. Members of SIGMOBILE receive the quarterly journal, Mobile Computing and Communications Review (MC2R), and are also able to receive announcements via the SIGMOBILE moderated members-only email distribution list, keeping them informed of the latest happenings in our field, including new opportunities to share their research and to meet with friends and colleagues at conferences and other events. SIGMOBILE members also are eligible for the lowest generally available registration fee for any event sponsored or co-sponsored by SIGMOBILE, and for the many events sponsored by other organizations offered in-cooperation with SIGMOBILE.
