ACM MobiCom 2020 is the twenty-sixth in a series of annual conferences sponsored by ACM SIGMOBILE dedicated to addressing the challenges in the areas of mobile computing and wireless and mobile networking. The MobiCom conference series serves as a highly selective, premier international forum addressing networks, systems, algorithms, and applications that support mobile computers and wireless networks. In addition to the regular conference program, MobiCom 2020 will include a set of workshops, research demonstrations, and a poster session that includes the ACM Student Research Competition.
The ACM MobiCom conference seeks papers describing significant research contributions in the field of wireless networking and mobile computing. MobiCom solicits papers that address important research challenges, including but not limited to communication networks, energy, computing, security and user experience. Successful papers should propose novel ideas to attack such problems through rigorous analysis, system design, and/or real-world measurement and deployment of mobile networks, systems and applications.
We want MobiCom’20 to be daring and emphasize novelty and creativity. The more novel the concept, the harder it can be to fully develop or evaluate all aspects, and the review process will take this into account. We encourage authors to discuss not only the significance but also the limitations of their ideas. We strongly encourage authors to describe how they will provide access to well-documented datasets, modeling and/or simulation tools, and codebases to support the reproducibility of their methods. MobiCom continues the two-deadline model and the reviewing process with one-shot revision piloted last year to improve the quality and timeliness of publications.
We invite submissions on a wide range of mobile computing and wireless networking research, including but not limited to:
Applications of machine learning to mobile/wireless research
Backscatter communication and wireless power
Embedded and energy-harvesting systems
Experimental platforms and infrastructures for wireless/mobile research
Implanted and wearable computing
