The 2nd MobiSys Women's Workshop (June 19, 2017)

MobiSys 2017 is pleased to announce the Women's Workshop for broadening participation of women in research in mobile systems, applications and services. This year's objectives of the workshop will include:

  • Bridging junior, mid-level and senior women researchers in the area for conversations on research and career intersets
  • Mentoring those new to research on how to make the most of attending a conference
  • Professional development tips on how to pitch your work to increase traction and impact

The workshop will feature keynote talks from distinguished women researchers in the community, panel sessions, mentoring sessions, and a poster session.

Apply for Travel Grants to the Women's Workshop

We are pleased to announce that we will have travel grants for about 4 students to attend the MobiSys Womens workshop followed by MobiSys. To do this, you will have to submit a poster to the workshop and fill out the travel grants application here. Thank you to Microsoft and Google for this generous sponsorship.

Call for Posters

Posters are solicited for research related to any aspect of mobile systems, applications and services. All women researchers are welcome to submit their recent work for presentation at the workshop and the main conference. Submitted abstracts will be peer reviewed and the abstracts of accepted posters will be posted on the conference website.

The abstracts will not appear in the conference proceedings, so participants can submit both published papers and work in progress, without worrying about dual submission policies. The main intent of the session is getting the participants to interact and get valuable feedback from the MobiSys community. So all presenters in the Women’s workshop will also get an opportunity to present their posters during the main conference poster session.

Poster submissions must include an extended abstract no longer than one 8.5x11-inch page, including all figures and references. This abstract should be formatted in two columns, single-spaced, with a font no smaller than 10-point. Submissions must be in Adobe PDF format.

The posters should be submitted here.
