Call For Papers

ACM MobiHoc is a premier conference with a highly selective single-track technical program dedicated to addressing the challenges emerging from wireless networking and computing.

We invite paper submissions on fundamental contributions to a broad variety of issues related to wireless and mobile networks. We encourage theoretical contributions as well as submissions related to implementation and experimentation that provide deeper understanding. The main focus is on contributions at and above the MAC layer. Papers dealing with physical layer issues are also welcome, provided that they address cross-layer networking issues.

The areas of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Mobile, cellular, sensor, wireless mesh, vehicular, cognitive radio, ad hoc, social, opportunistic, and delay tolerant networks
  • Optimization and control for mobile crowdsourcing
  • Mobile computing systems
  • Applications, middleware, transport, network, and MAC protocols
  • Routing, scheduling, resource allocation, and energy efficiency
  • Localization and location privacy
  • Scaling laws and fundamental limits
  • Cross-layer optimization and control
  • Modeling and performance evaluation
  • Function computation and data aggregation
  • Network resilience, fault-tolerance, and reliability
  • Trust, security, and privacy
  • Distributed sensing, actuation, and control in cyber-physical systems
  • Wireless aspects of the smart grid
  • Wireless aspects of the Internet of Things
  • Impacts of physical layer innovations on higher layers
  • System design, testbeds, and experimental evaluation
  • Measurements from deployed and experimental systems

All papers submitted to the conference will be considered for a Best Paper Award.

Paper Submission Guidelines

Papers should not exceed 10 pages (US letter size) double column including figures, tables, and references in standard ACM format. Papers must be submitted electronically in printable pdf form. Templates for the standard ACM format can be found at this link. Both strict and alternate styles are acceptable for submission. No changes to margins, spacing, or font sizes are allowed from those specified by the style files. Papers violating the formatting guidelines will be returned without review.

All submissions will be reviewed using a double-blind review process. The identity of authors and referees will not be revealed to each other. To ensure a blind review, the authors' names and affiliations should not appear in the paper or the pdf file; bibliographic references should be made in a way that preserves author anonymity; acknowledgments and support information should not be included. In case there is a need to refer to a technical report that includes, for example, proofs, an anonymous link should be provided.

Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings published by the ACM. Warning: It is ACM policy not to allow double submissions, where the same paper is submitted to more than one conference/journal concurrently. Any double submissions detected will be immediately rejected from all conferences/journals involved.
