MobiSys 2015 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 that enable new and compelling mobile scenarios and applications. The conference values results and insights obtained from working implementations more highly than those obtained solely from simulations.

Please note that the Mobisys paper deadline and the conference itself is earlier than in the past, due to co-location with WWW 2015.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Experience with mobile applications, networks and systems
  • Innovative mobile, mobile sensing, and mobile crowdsourcing apps
  • Tools for building and measuring mobile systems
  • Innovative wearable or mobile devices
  • Novel 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, or the same form, must not be submitted to MobiSys. Submission of a longer version of a published, not just accepted, workshop paper is encouraged if it includes significant new contributions. However, the authors must cite their workshop paper. Furthermore, extended versions of papers submitted to Hotmobile 2015 should not be submitted to Mobisys 2015, as it is extremely unlikely that they would meet this standard of significant new contributions. Submissions will be single blind, i.e., reviewers will be anonymous and submissions should include authors' names and institutions.

We strongly encourage perspective authors to use past MobiSys proceedings as a guideline to assess the readiness of their work for submission. Due to high 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 may be brief.

ACM has been making an effort to support more open access to the proceedings of its sponsored conferences. As a result, the MobiSys 2015 proceedings may be publicly available through the conference website from two weeks before the conference to two weeks after it.

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 confidential.

As part of the submission process, authors of papers that describe experiments on human subjects, or that analyze nonpublic data derived from human subjects (even anonymized data), will be asked to certify that their work 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.
