Call for Demos/Videos

MobiSys 2018 seeks proposals for live demos or videos of demos of mobile computing technologies. Research prototypes as well as commercial products are welcome. However, MobiSys 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. Note that unlike posters, demos of previously published systems are welcome. Demos will be selected based on the expected interest from the MobiSys audience.

A demo submission requires an extended abstract no longer than one 8.5x11-inch page, including all figures and references, describing the demo as well as any special requirements (other than a demo booth/table). The extended abstract should be formatted in 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. Please do not anonymize your submissions. Demo proposals should be submitted through the following URL:

Please use this LaTeX template (the same as the one for full papers at Mobisys 2018) that is known to comply with the formatting requirements. Authors remain responsible for checking that their resulting PDF meets our formatting guidelines.

Demo submissions are encouraged to submit an optional companion video 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.

The abstracts of accepted demonstrations will be posted on the conference website and will appear in the conference proceedings. At least one author of an accepted demo is expected to register for the conference and demonstrate the system in person.

Best Demo

All posters will be considered for the best poster award and all demos will be considered for the best demo award. An independent review committee will select the winners at the conference.
