Important Dates

Proposal submission deadline: November 25th, 2011
Notification of acceptance: December 15th, 2011

The ACM SIGMOBILE will host one day of workshops (June 11) collocated with MobiHoc 2012 on technical areas related to wireless sensor and mobile and ad hoc networking and computing. ACM MobiHoc is the premier international symposium dedicated to addressing challenges emerging from wireless ad hoc networking and computing. To enhance the symposium, SIGMOBILE invites workshop proposals from interested communities. New workshops in emerging areas that can engage participants in greater interaction are welcome. In particular, we welcome proposals to encourage students, underrepresented groups, and women to participate the workshops. Also, new emerging areas, such as Green IT, Smart Grid, vehicular contents networks, and new applications of wireless technologies are welcome.

Workshops will be a full day on the first day of the conference. The ideal workshop proposal should focus on a specific area, be of current interest, and be able to attract a number of high quality submissions.

ACM MobiHoc provides basic support for the workshops in the form of registration, publicity, a meeting room, and help in arranging meal service at the ACM MobiHoc conference. To promote flexibility, the details of the format of the workshop, the form of submissions and presentations, and the likes is left to the workshop organizers. However, because workshops are meant to foster discussions on emerging topics of interest among the broader SIGMOBILE community, workshops are encouraged to be inclusive rather than exclusive in their solicitation of material. In addition, targeting more interactive forums, such as presentations of short papers (and posters) rather than traditional presentations of full length papers, can be more conducive to successful workshops.

The workshop proposal should be no longer than three pages and should clearly identify the name of the workshop, the names of the workshop's general, program and steering committee chairs (as appropriate) and provide an overview/scope of the workshop including an explanation of how the workshop fits into the scope of the MobiHoc community and how it will benefit its members. Proposals should also include a list of potential program committee members, brief bios of all chairs, a tentative call for papers with workshop deadlines and expected number of submissions and participants. If this workshop has been held before, please include its history (location of workshop, number of submissions, number of accepted papers, number of attendees).

All required information should be submitted to the Workshop Chairs by the deadline above.
