 Call for Workshops 


ACM MobiCom is the premier international conference dedicated to addressing emerging topics in mobile, wireless and ad hoc networking and computing. MobiCom 2016 will hold multiple one or half day workshops on October 3 (Monday), 2016 and October 7 (Friday), 2016 of the conference week in New York, USA. We invite you to submit workshop proposals on any topic related to mobile communications, wireless networking, and mobile computing on or before January 15, 2016 to the Workshop Chairs. The ideal workshop proposal should focus on a specific area of significant current interest, and be able to attract a number of high-quality submissions. Proposals on emerging or disruptive topics guaranteed to generate significant interest in the community will be selected. MobiCom 2016 will likely feature a mix of some returning and some new workshops.

   Research Track Workshops 

We encourage standard research-oriented workshops that address emerging research topics that can generate significant interest in the community. Areas include, but not limited to, mobile, wireless networking and computing.

   Industrial Track Workshops 

In addition to the standard research-oriented workshops, we encourage proposals that are more industry-oriented in nature. Examples include (but are 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, wearables and other hardware. In addition to the requirements outlined below, industrial-track workshop proposals should specifically highlight their relevance to the MobiCom community.

   Experimental Workshops 

In line with the objectives of MobiCom 2016, we also invite workshop proposals that would target papers presenting extensive experiences with implementation, deployment, and operation of mobile computing and wireless networks.

   Proposal Instructions 

A workshop proposal should be no more than 3 pages and should at least include:

  • Proposal track (research, industrial, experimental) in the title
  • Motivation and rationale for the workshop.
  • List of workshop program components (keynote speaker, panel, paper sessions, etc).
  • Names and affiliations of main organizers and tentative composition of the committees.
  • Prior history of this workshop, if any (including # submissions, # accepted papers and # attendees).
  • Expected number of submissions and participants.
  • The workshop deadlines (internal and external).
  • A draft call for papers (as complete as possible).

If the workshop was previously co-located with other conferences, please indicate the name of the conferences and the years clearly.

   Submission Instructions 

Email proposals in PDF (ONLY) to the workshop co-chairs, including "MobiCom 2016 Workshops" in the subject line. Please make sure to add the email addresses of all workshop co-chairs to the system for better communication.

   Important Dates 

Workshop proposals due:
January 15 22, 2016 (extended)
Notification of acceptance:
January 29, 2016
Workshop final call for papers:
February 5, 2016

All deadlines are 11:59 PM EST.

   General Information 

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, posters and demos, 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.

Please make sure that you include "MobiCom 2016 Workshops" in the subject line. For information on ACM SIGMOBILE and MobiCom 2016 visit or email mobicom_info [at] acm [dot] org.
