7th IEEE Workshop on Mobile Computing Systems and Applications (WMCSA 2006)
Call For Papers

Date: April 6-7, 2006
Location: Semiahmoo Resort, Washington, USA
Submission Deadline: Oct 16, 2005 (extended)

The Seventh IEEE Workshop on Mobile Computing Systems and Applications continues the series of highly selective, interactive workshops focused on mobile applications, systems, and environments, as well as their underlying state-of-the-art technologies. WMCSA's small workshop format makes it ideal for presenting and discussing new directions or controversial approaches.

We solicit submissions of position papers that focus primarily on applications and systems and that propose new directions of research, advocate non-traditional approaches to old (or new) ideas, or generate controversy and discussion. We are particularly interested in the following topic areas, although papers describing other challenges unique to or exacerbated by mobility are also welcome:

  • Operating system and distributed systems support for mobile computing
  • Coordination, aggregation, and spontaneous interaction of mobile devices
  • Novel applications and environments supporting mobility
  • HCI issues related to mobile computing
  • Security and privacy of mobile computing
  • Management, configuration, and deployment of systems supporting mobility

Submissions describing new lower-level technologies are welcome if they focus on how the technology is being used or integrated into a system or application.

WMCSA 2006 will be a highly interactive workshop. Submissions will be judged based upon originality, technical merit, topical relevance, and likelihood of leading to insightful discussion at the workshop. Please do not submit abbreviated versions of papers to be submitted within the next year to a conference or journal.

To encourage an atmosphere conducive to participation, attendance will be limited. Authors of submitted papers and accepted demo proposals will be given first priority, with others able to register on a space-available basis. A small number of graduate students will be granted a waiver of the registration fee. Waiver proposal submission instructions will be posted when available on the web site.

Paper Submission Instructions

The paper submissions site is now open and will close on 16 Oct 05 at 23:59:59 PDT.

Submissions should contain 6 or fewer U.S letter pages in PDF format. Papers should be single column using 12pt font. The conference proceedings will be published by the IEEE, and we hope to publish a digest of the workshop in a relevant journal. As is customary, papers must not have been published elsewhere and may not be simultaneously under submission at another venue.


To further stimulate discussion, we welcome researchers who would like to demonstrate working prototypes of their systems. Instructions for submitting demo proposals will be posted when available on the web site.
