The deadline for submitting papers to MobiHoc 2002 has passed.

The deadline for registering papers for submission to the MobiHoc 2002 conference has passed. The deadline was January 2, 2002. Only papers that have been registered by this deadline can be submitted to the conference.

If you have already registered your paper, please use the web site specific to your paper to submit the full version of your paper by the deadline of January 8, 2002. This web site was created for you when you registered your paper. The URL for this web site, and the associated User ID and password, were displayed when you registered your paper and are in the email you should have received acknowledging your paper.

Please remember that we must receive your full paper submission by the submission deadline of January 8, 2002. If you need to change any of the other data for your paper that you submitted when you registered your paper, you may also do so through your paper web site up until the deadline of January 8, 2002. The new deadline of January 8 for paper submission is a firm deadline.

NOTE: Your submission file must be either a PDF file or a PostScript file. Do not submit other formats such as a Microsoft Word ".doc" file. If you previously submitted any format other than PDF or PostScript, please convert your paper properly to PDF or PostScript and upload your paper again through your specific paper web site. Please see the instructions below for information on how to convert your paper to PDF or PostScript.

Also, please be sure your paper conforms to the format requirements outlined below. In particular, please pay attention to the paper size (U.S. "Letter" size) and double-blind reviewing (do not identify yourself in the paper in any way) requirements.

Submitted papers should be unpublished and must not be currently under review for any other publication. Authors of accepted papers will need to sign an ACM copyright release form and present their paper at the conference. The Proceedings of the conference will be published by ACM Press and distributed at the conference; copies of the Proceedings will also be available for sale after the conference. For more information about MobiHoc 2002, please see the MobiHoc 2002 Home Page.

Please be sure your paper is formatted properly for submisison. In particular, please note the following format requirements:

  • Your submission must be in either PDF or PostScript format. We cannot handle other strange formats such as Microsoft Word. Whatever text processor or formatter you use to write your paper (LaTeX, Microsoft Word, FrameMaker, etc.), please convert the output to PDF or PostScript before submission. Under Windows, for example, PDF files can be produced using the Adobe Acrobat product, and PostScript files can be produced using any Windows PostScript printer driver and checking the "Print to file" box in the "Print" window.

  • Your submission must be correctly formatted to fit on U.S. "Letter" size paper, which is 8.5 inches wide by 11 inches tall. Please be sure you have a reasonable margin (such as 1 inch) on all edges (top, bottom, left, and right) of each page. Under Windows, for example, in the "Page Setup" window, please select "Letter" (e.g., not "A4") for the paper size, and please set your margins appropriately for this paper size; also select "Letter" for paper size in the printer options (click on "Properties" from the "Print" window). Under Unix, if you are using "dvips" to produce PostScript, please be sure the paper size is set correctly (specify "-t letter" to force the paper size).

  • Paper submissions must be limited to 15 pages. Either single-column or double-column format is fine for submissions. The font size used in the text of your submission must be no smaller than 10 points.

  • As described in the Call for Papers, all papers will be judged through double-blind reviewing, where the identities of the authors are withheld from the reviewers. Please be sure your name does not appear on the paper or in the submitted PDF or PostScript file. This means that before submission, you must remove from the paper the authors' names, authors' affiliations, acknowledgements of funding sources, etc. Also, be careful how you refer to your own prior work in the paper. For example, do not describe your prior work with phrases like:
    In prior work, we presented a routing protocol that ....
    Instead, refer to your work in the third person, such as
    In prior work, Smith presented a routing protocol that ....
  • We must be able to print your paper once it is submitted. Due to the large variety of systems available for formatting papers and producing PDF or PostScript, this is not always possible for some systems. To maximize the chances that your paper will print correctly, please use only standard printer fonts (e.g., Times Roman, Helvetica, etc.) or standard TeX Computer Modern fonts; other fonts may be used but must be included in the PDF or PostScript file.

Once you have finished the full version of your paper and you have prepared your paper for submission in the correct format as outlined above, the actual submission process for the full version of your paper uses the web-based form created when you registered your paper. Use the "Revised Submission File" space on the form to give the file name of your paper to be uploaded to our server.

The details on how to access this specific web site for your paper were displayed when you clicked on the "Submit Paper" button when you registered your paper; the contact author registered for your paper should also have received an email copy of that acknowledgement sent to the contact email address that you entered on the registration form. If you registered your paper and did not receive this email acknowledgement, please contact
