The MobiCom demo session solicits the submission of research, platform, and product demonstrations and exhibits from both academics and industry.

Demonstrations should showcase innovative research prototypes, platforms and applications in the areas of mobile computing and wireless and mobile networking. Exhibits can be advanced product prototypes or technology breakthroughs that are relevant to the MobiCom audience. We strongly encourage demos based on novel applications in the domain of mobile computing and wireless systems. We also welcome live demos reproducing evaluation results of papers appearing in ACM Mobicom 2017 or past editions as well as other relevant venues.

Please refer to the main conference introduction and CFP for the general areas.

   Why should you submit a Demo or Exhibit? 

Presenting a demo is a great opportunity, especially for students, to obtain interesting and valuable feedback on ongoing research from the knowledgeable crowd at the conference. Accepted demos will be published as a three-page abstract for the archived conference proceedings and the ACM digital library.

   What to Submit? 

Please submit a proposal of your demo or exhibit. It should be a summary or extended abstract describing the research to be presented, maximum 3 pages in US letter size (8.5 x 11 inches) with fonts no smaller than 10 point size, in PDF file format. Make sure the proposal includes:

  • The names, affiliations, and email addresses of the authors.
  • Equipment to be used for the demo.
  • Space needed and setup time required.
  • Additional facilities needed including estimated power needed for the demo, special environments and tools, Internet access, physical space requirements, etc.

The MobiCom 2017 Demo committee will review all submissions. Accepted demos will be posted on the conference website and published in the main conference proceedings and the ACM digital library.

All demos will be considered for the Best Demo Award. A committee will decide the winner on-site after evaluating all demo presentations.

   Where to Submit?
