Call for Posters

The ACM International Symposium on Mobile Ad Hoc Networking and Computing 2014 solicits submissions for a poster session dedicated to sharing late-breaking results or work-in-progress on any topic related to mobile ad hoc networking. Posters provide a chance for in-depth research discussions with other conference attendees and are therefore especially well suited for obtaining feedback on ongoing research or controversial ideas. Please see the call for papers for more guidance on topics of interest at this conference.

In addition to the actual poster session, poster presenters will have a chance to pitch their idea in a one-minute madness session in front of the entire audience. This presentation is intended to generate interest in the poster.

Best Poster

All presented posters will be considered for the Best Poster Award. The winner will be selected at the conference by an award committee.

Submissions and Selection

Prospective poster presenters should submit a poster abstract with a maximum length of 2 pages, including all figures and references. Poster abstracts must be formatted with the ACM style sheet (please choose "Option 2" if LaTex is used). The abstract title should begin with "Poster: ". Submissions will be reviewed by a poster selection committee. The review is single-blind, that is, author names should be listed on the submission.

Accepted poster abstracts will be included in the conference proceedings and listed on the conference web site. Each accepted poster must be presented in person at the conference and at least one author/presenter has to register at the student rate or higher. Easels will be provided at the conference for 3x4 feet posters. Please submit your poster abstract by email to

Call for Workshop Proposals

In addition to the main conference's technical program, the program will also include a set of workshops.

The goal of the workshops is to explore emerging research topics, and to provide a forum for authors to present early research results on these topics. We would like to have a limited number of workshops, with a high quality program dominated by contributed papers. Contributions to the workshops would be for presenting novel ideas in a less formal setting, possibly more focused on a particular topic than the regular conference sessions do. We seek proposals from individuals and teams interested in organizing strong workshops.

Each workshop will be a full day, with 4 sessions of 1½ hours each. The dates for paper submission, notification and camera-ready version would preferably be coordinated across the selected workshop. Papers submitted to the individual workshops will likely be due in February 2014, with the camera-ready version due in June.  The workshop proposal, in plain text or PDF, should provide the following information:

  1. Title, scope and topics of the workshop.
  2. Names, addresses, and affiliation of Workshop organizers.
  3. Tentative committee lists (organizers, steering committee if any, etc.)
  4. Workshop format planned (papers, demos, panels, etc.)
  5. Past history of the workshop (where held, number of papers, number of participants)
  6. Rationale - why is the topic current and important; why would the workshop attract a significant number of submissions of good quality.

Please include a draft call for papers, if available. Workshop proposals should include a list of important dates to approximately coincide with the main conference.

Important Dates

Workshop organizers should send their proposals to the Workshop Co-Chairs by email.

Proposals due: November 15, 2013
Notification of acceptance: December 15, 2013

Call for Demos

Mobihoc 2014 seeks proposals for live demonstrations of mobile computing technologies. Particularly encouraged are the demonstrations that include participation by conference attendees. Research prototypes as well as commercial products are welcome. However, Mobihoc is not an appropriate forum for marketing or sales presentations. The presenter is expected to understand the system being demonstrated and explain the technical contributions of the system to the audience. Demonstrations of previously published systems are also welcome. Demonstrations will be selected based on the expected interest from the Mobihoc audience.

A demo submission requires only an extended abstract no longer than two 8.5x11-inch pages, including all figures and references, describing the demonstration as well as any special requirements (other than a demo booth/table). The extended abstract should be formatted in 8.5x11-inch pages, two columns, single-spaced, with a font no smaller than 10-point. The demo title should begin with "Demo: ". Submissions must be in Adobe PDF format. The submission should include

  • the names, affiliations, and email addresses of the authors,
  • equipment to be used for the demo,
  • space needed and the required setup time,
  • additional facilities needed, including power and Internet/wireless access.
Demo proposals should be submitted by email to Please use the CR format for your submissions (please choose "Option 2" if LaTex is used).

The abstracts of accepted demonstrations will be posted on the conference website and will appear in the conference proceedings.

Demo Video

Demo submissions are encouraged to submit a companion video clip showcasing their demo. Video clips should highlight the technical contributions of the demo and be no more than 90 seconds in length. Demo video clips will be posted on the conference website. Videos can be submitted by including a link to the video along with the extended abstract submission.
