Call for Papers: MobiSys 2014
The Twelfth International Conference on Mobile Systems, Applications,
                              and Services (MobiSys 2014)

                                 June 16th-19th, 2014
                              Bretton Woods, NH, USA

MobiSys 2014 will continue the tradition of publishing top-notch research
papers dealing with all aspects of mobile systems. MobiSys seeks original
papers that take a broad systems perspective rather than focus narrowly on
low-level components. Of particular interest are technical contributions
enable new and compelling mobile scenarios and applications. The conference
values results and insights obtained from working implementations more
than those obtained solely from simulations. If you have any questions
regarding relevance or other submission-related issues, please contact the
program chairs at mobisys-pcchairs14 at umich.edu.

Important Dates:

- Abstract registration deadline: December 3, 2013, 11:59:59 PM EST
  (December 4, 2013, 04:59:59 AM UTC)
- Paper submission deadline: December 10, 2013, 11:59:59 PM EST
  (December 11, 2013, 04:59:59 AM UTC)
- Notification of acceptance: March 4, 2014

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Experience with mobile applications, networks and systems
- Innovative mobile and mobile sensing applications
- Tools for building and measuring mobile systems
- Wearable computing and innovative mobile devices
- Software architectures for mobile devices
- Data management for mobile applications
- Infrastructure support for node mobility
- System-level energy management for mobile devices
- Operating systems for mobile devices
- Support for mobile social networking and mobile Web
- Security and privacy in mobile systems
- Systems for location and context sensing and awareness
- Mobile computing support for pervasive computing
- Vehicular wireless systems
- User interfaces and usability for mobile applications and systems
- Personal-area networks and systems
- Cyber foraging and resource discovery for mobile systems

Papers on work that is currently under review, whether in shorter, longer,
the same form, must not be submitted to MobiSys. Submission of a longer
of a published, not just accepted, workshop paper is encouraged if it
significant new contributions. However, the authors must cite their
paper. Papers accompanied by nondisclosure agreement forms are not
and will be returned to the author(s) unread. As is customary with the
scientific peer review process, submissions will be handled as confidential
material during the review process.

We strongly encourage perspective author(s) to use past MobiSys proceedings
a guideline to assess the readiness of their work for submission. Due to
review load on PC members, low quality or premature work submitted to the
conference is likely to receive a smaller number of reviews and the reviews
be brief.

Simultaneous submission of the same work to multiple venues, submission of
previously published work, or plagiarism constitutes dishonesty or fraud.
Papers meeting any of these criteria will be rejected. Authors uncertain
whether their submission meets these guidelines should contact the program
chairs. Papers accompanied by nondisclosure agreement forms will not be
considered. Accepted submissions will be treated as confidential prior to
publication; rejected submissions will be permanently treated as

New in 2014: As part of the submission process, authors of papers that
experiments on human subjects, or that analyze nonpublic data derived from
human subjects (even anonymized data), will be asked to certify that their
was vetted by an ethics review (e.g., IRB approval). We expect authors to
follow the rules of their host institutions around data collection and
experiments with human subjects.

Selected outstanding papers may be fast-tracked as a special section of
Transactions on Mobile Computing.
