 Call for Posters and SRC 


By following its long and fruitful tradition of poster presentation/discussion, ACM MobiCom 2015 solicits submissions for its Posters Program.

Proposals for poster presentations featuring early research work and preliminary results are strongly encouraged and solicited. The MobiCom 2015 Poster Session will provide an excellent opportunity for initial feedback on early research results and for gaining early visibility of ongoing projects.

To ensure maximum visibility and to garner high interest in the Poster Session from all MobiCom attendees, each accepted poster will have the opportunity to deliver a fast elevator pitch. Each poster presenter will get a one-minute to overview and stir interest in her/his poster (3 slides presented in PechaKucha mode - In addition, each presenter will have the opportunity to have a webpage, which will be linked to from the MobiCom Posters & Student Research Competition (SRC) program page, to post additional details including possibly a short video presentation.

Posters are solicited in all areas of mobile computing and wireless networking. Particular areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Architectures, algorithms, and protocols for cognitive wireless networks and their integration in the next generation Internet
  • Architectures, protocols, and algorithms to cope with mobility, limited bandwidth, limited power and/or intermittent connectivity
  • Coexistence and synergic exploitation of heterogeneous wireless networks
  • Design, implementation, and evaluation of mobile systems and applications
  • Experimental large-scale testbeds for mobile networks
  • Fundamental understanding of mobile computing and wireless networking
  • Green and energy-aware mobile systems and networking, e.g., for mobile wireless sensor networks and applications
  • Integration and interworking of wired-wireless networks
  • Internet of Things (IoT) and Cyber Physical Systems (CPS)
  • Modeling, simulation/emulation, and measurement of mobile systems
  • Next generation (beyond 802.11) wireless technologies and related systems and protocols
  • Operating system and middleware support for mobile applications, systems, and networking
  • Performance evaluation of mobile networks, protocols, and systems
  • Security, privacy, and trustworthiness of mobile systems
  • Techniques for ad-hoc, delay-tolerant, and spontaneous networking
  • Vehicular (infrastructured and ad-hoc) networks and vehicular sensor applications

   The ACM Student Research Competition (SRC) 

ACM MobiCom 2015 will host an ACM Student Research Competition (SRC) along side the Posters Program. Students submitting to the MobiCom 2015 Poster Session can opt to have their posters considered also by the SRC committee, if their posters are accepted. Selected competitors will receive up to $500 USD for their conference travel, depending on need, and will earn a chance to compete in the SRC Grand Finals. The winners will be recognized at the Annual ACM Awards Banquet. Competitors should be prepared to attend the Poster Session and, if selected for further competition, to give a short talk about their research projects. Winners of the MobiCom 2015 SRC will be announced at the conference. The Student Research Competition is open to graduate and undergraduate students whose submissions are accepted by the SRC committee. To be considered, complete a submission to the Poster Session and indicate that you would like to participate in the SRC by adding "[SRC]" in the subject line. Valid ACM student membership and student status as of the submission deadline are required for the lead student. For more information about the SRC competition, contact the SRC Co-Chairs Mehmet C. Vuran ( and Andrzej Duda (

The SRC competition is fully sponsored by a generous donation from Microsoft Research.

   Submission Instructions 

The posters should be submitted via email to the Poster Chairs: mobicomposters2015 The submission should be formatted as a paper or extended abstract describing the research to be presented in the poster and should be submitted as a PDF file of at most 3 pages, including all figures and references (formatted into the US letter size of 8.5 x 11 inches with fonts no smaller than 10 point size). The extended abstract must include the authors' names, affiliations, and email addresses. Any submission should include the following:
  • Whether you would like the submission to be considered for the Student Research Competition, by adding "[SRC]" in the subject line
  • If you would like your submission to be considered for the SRC, there is the additional need to indicate whether any of the student authors is an undergraduate student. Note that if any of the authors is a graduate student, then the submission will be considered under the graduate category

All poster submissions will be reviewed by the Posters committee. If your submission is selected for the Posters Session, you will receive information regarding the size of the poster board, etc., so that you can prepare and produce your poster. Easels and white boards will be provided by the Conference. Once your poster is accepted, we will include the abstract of your poster on the conference website and publish it in the main proceedings and the ACM digital library.
