ACM MobiCom 2021 is the twenty-seventh in a series of annual conferences sponsored by ACM SIGMOBILE dedicated to addressing the challenges in the areas of mobile computing and wireless and mobile networking. The MobiCom conference series serves as a highly selective, premier international forum addressing networks, systems, algorithms, and applications that support mobile computers and wireless networks. In addition to the regular conference program, MobiCom 2021 will include a set of workshops, research demonstrations, and a poster session that includes the ACM Student Research Competition.

Although the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, the MobiCom Steering Committee and SIGMOBILE Executive Committee, with the expectation (and hope) for a generally improving picture including increasing vaccination rates, announce the following change: MobiCom 2021 is being postponed to January 31 through February 4, 2022, with plans to hold it then in person in the conference's originally planned location of New Orleans. We are also exploring ways to make a hybrid option available for presenters or participants unable to attend in person.

More details on the plans for MobiCom 2021 will be announced soon. Note, too, that this is still being referred to as MobiCom 2021 and does not replace MobiCom 2022, which is being planned to be held at its normal time in the fall of 2022.
