Call for Workshop Proposals
MobiCom 2013 will hold multiple one or half day workshops
on Monday (September 30, 2013) and Friday (October 4, 2013) of
the conference week in Miami, FL, USA. We invite you to submit
workshop proposals on any topic related to mobile
communications, wireless networking, and mobile computing on or
before March 1, 2013 to the Workshop Chairs. The ideal workshop
proposal should focus on a specific area, be of current
interest, and be able to attract a number of high-quality
submissions. Proposals on emerging topics guaranteed to
generate significant interest in the community will be
selected. MobiCom 2013 will likely feature a mix of some
returning and some new workshops.
This year, in addition to the standard research-oriented
workshops, we encourage proposals that are more
industry-oriented in nature. Examples include (but not limited
to) workshops themed around a specific platform (e.g., Android,
Windows 8, iOS) and hands-on experience workshops involving
mobile devices, sensor platforms and other hardware. In
addition to the requirements outlined below, industrial-track
workshop proposals should specifically highlight their
relevance to the MobiCom community.
A workshop proposal should be no more than 3
, containing at least:
- A draft call for papers (as complete as possible)
- Names and affiliations of main organizers and
tentative composition of the committees
- Motivation and rationale for the workshop
- List of workshop program components (keynote speaker,
panel, paper sessions, etc).
- Expected number of submissions and participants
- Prior history of this workshop, if any (including #
submissions, # accepted papers and # attendees)
- If the workshop was previously co-located with other
conferences, please indicate the name of the conferences and
the years clearly.

ACM MobiCom provides basic support for the workshops in the
form of registration, publication, publicity, meeting space,
audio/video equipment and coffee breaks. To promote flexibility,
the details including the format of the workshop and the form of
submissions and presentations are left to the organizers of each
workshop. Because workshops are meant to foster discussions on
emerging topics of interest among the broader SIGMOBILE
community, workshops are encouraged to be inclusive rather than
exclusive in their solicitation of material. In addition,
targeting more interactive forums such as presentations of short
papers, panels, and round-table discussions, rather than
traditional presentations of full-length papers can be more
conducive to successful workshops.
We look forward to your
submissions. Please feel free to contact us with any questions
about submitting a workshop proposal.
