Students - if you have a cool demo of your ideas, come and showcase it in Mobicom/Mobihoc this year in the Student demo competition and win the best demo awards! See instructions below.

Proposals for research demonstrations and exhibits are strongly solicited. Research demonstrations should be innovate research prototypes that show new research related to the practice of mobile computing or wireless and mobile networking.

The set of best (roughly 10) demo proposals will be invited for publication as extended abstracts in a special issue in the Mobile Computing and Communications Review (MC2R).

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Architectures, protocols, and algorithms to cope with mobility, limited bandwidth, limited power and/or intermittent connectivity
  • Applications and services for mobile users
  • Fundamental aspects of mobile computing and wireless networking
  • Integration and interworking of wired and wireless networks
  • Location-dependent applications and protocols
  • Modeling, measurement and simulation aspects of mobile networks
  • Mobile ad hoc and sensor networks
  • Operating system and middleware support for mobile computing and networking
  • Performance of mobile and wireless networks and systems
  • Security, privacy, and fault-tolerance of mobile/wireless systems
  • Wireless access technologies for mobile nodes (e.g., multi-radio and mesh systems, personal area networks)
  • Implementations and experimental mobile systems
   Student Demo Competition

This year all research demo submissions with a student lead will be automatically entered into a Student Research Demo competition. The goal of this competition is to encourage students to build systems and prototypes validating their research results, and through the demo, make it more accessible to the wider community. During Mobicom/MobiHoc, all these demos will be judged by an evaluation committee and cash awards will be given to the two best demonstrations. Demos will primarily be judged on originality, execution, and illustration of the core research ideas.

   Submission Instructions 

Submit a summary of the proposed demo (maximum of 3 pages, including figures if needed) to the Research Demo Chair (Suman Banerjee, E-mail:

Please indicate "MobiCom/MobiHoc 2007 Research Demo Submission" as the subject of the email. All submissions will be acknowledged.

The summary should include:

  • Goals of the demo and the basic idea that it supports.
  • Equipment to be used for the demo.
  • Space needed.
  • Setup time required.
  • Additional facilities needed including power and Internet/wireless access.
  • Indicate a URL with any extra information, if needed.
  • Indicate whether the demo is eligible for the student demo competition by identifying the lead student(s) and their affiliations.
In addition to student submissions, we also solicit non-student demos and exhibits that will be of interest to the community.

Important Dates
Paper submissions due:
June 9, 2007 (5 pm EST)
Notification of acceptance:
July 6, 2007
