MobiSys 2021: Call for Workshops

MobiSys is a premier venue for researchers working in the area of mobile and wireless systems, middleware, services, and applications. We solicit workshop proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the conference, likely in late June or in July. Workshop papers will be included with the MobiSys proceedings and published in the ACM Digital Library. Duration and format of the workshop is very flexible to best adapt to the audience and workshop goal.

The deadline for submitting proposals is February 28th 2021

Topics of interest

We expect proposals on new and emerging topics in the general area of mobile and wireless systems, services, and applications. The ideal workshop proposal will focus on a timely and emerging topic, and be able to attract a number of interesting and high-quality contributions that spark discussions in an informal setting. The goal is to stimulate interactive conversations and inspire new research ideas. We will likely feature a mix of some returning and some new workshops.
