Paper Submission

Research papers should focus on the design, implementation and evaluation of complete systems and components. Regular research papers are limited to ten (10) singlespaced, double-column, 8.5" x 11" pages with a 10-point font size. We also encourage researchers and students to submit short work-in-progress (WIP) papers, which are limited to six (6) pages. Industry papers should focus on new achievements and advances in practical mobile applications and services, present empirical results, or report on open problems or challenges that arise from an industrial context.
