              / September 19-23, 2011

 

 Call for Demos and Exhibits 

 

If you have a cool demo of your ideas, come and showcase it in MobiCom 2011 this year in the student demo competition and win the best demo awards! See instructions below.

Proposals for research demonstrations and exhibits are strongly solicited. Demonstrations should be innovative research prototypes that show new research related to the practice of mobile computing or wireless and mobile networking.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Applications and services for mobile users
  • Architectures, protocols, and algorithms to cope with mobility, limited bandwidth, limited power and/or intermittent connectivity
  • Fundamental aspects of mobile computing and wireless networking
  • Implementations and experimental mobile systems
  • Integration and interworking of wired and wireless networks
  • Location-dependent applications and protocols
  • Mobile ad hoc and sensor networks
  • Mobile cloud computing
  • Modeling, measurement and simulation aspects of mobile networks
  • Operating system and middleware support for mobile computing and networking
  • Performance of mobile and wireless networks and systems
  • Security, privacy, and fault-tolerance of mobile/wireless systems
  • Wireless access technologies for mobile nodes (e.g., multi-radio and mesh systems, personal area networks)

   Student Demo Competition 

This year all research demo submissions with a student lead will be automatically entered into a Student Research Demo competition. The goal of this competition is to encourage students to build systems and prototypes validating their research results, and through the demo, make it more accessible to the wider community. During MobiCom, demos will be judged by an evaluation committee and one will be selected for the Best Demonstration Award. Demos will primarily be judged on originality, execution, and illustration of the core research ideas.

   Submission Instructions 

Submit a summary of the proposed demo via email to xizhang@ece.tamu.edu . The proposal should be maximum of 3 pages, including figures if needed, and in PDF format only. Please indicate “MobiCom 2011 Demo Submission” as the subject of the email. All submissions will be acknowledged. The summary should include:

  • The names, affiliations, and email addresses of the authors.
  • Goals of the demo and the basic idea that it supports.
  • Equipment to be used for the demo.
  • Space needed and setup time required.
  • Additional facilities needed including power and Internet/wireless access.
  • Indicate a URL with any extra information, if needed.
  • Indicate whether the demo is eligible for the student demo competition by identifying the lead student(s) and their affiliations.

We encourage the submission of demos and exhibits that will be of interest to the community from researchers in academia and industry.

   Important Dates 

Submissions due:   August 12, 2011 (11:59pm EST)
