Call for Workshops

The Mobiquitous 2008 Workshop Chairs and the Mobiquitous Organizing Committee invite proposals for workshops to be held with the Fifth Annual International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Systems: Computing, Networking and Services.

Mobiquitous 2008 will be held in Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, from July 21st to 25th 2008. Workshops provide a forum for discussion among researchers and practitioners of areas of special interest within Mobiquitous. In the past, successful workshops complemented the technical program of Mobiquitous. The aim is to provide a forum for novel ideas and specific research questions. Within this scope, several types of workshop organizations are encouraged. Workshops may be organized by invitation or via an open call for participation. Organizers may ask participants to give talks, submit short position papers, or full papers with a peer-review process.

Workshop organizers are expected to be active in the field where they propose a workshop. To foster interaction, the workshops are full-day events limited to 30-50 participants. Workshops are expected to be one day. A typical number of papers for a workshop are 10-12 but this may differ, depending on the chosen format, e.g., industrial tracks, panels, etc. As a reference, Web pages of previous Mobiquitous conference sites (and links to various workshop sites) are accessible from


We expect workshops to complement the topics of Mobiquitous. Note, that Mobiquitous is co-located with the First Annual International Symposium on Vehicular Computing Systems. Topics from this area are also welcomed.

Please contact the workshop chairs (see contact information below) to propose workshop or to discuss ideas. A formal workshop proposal should be at most two pages and include the following information:

  • Name of the workshop
  • Theme of the workshop and topics of interest, and how these relate to the overall conference
  • Information about previous offering(s) of the workshop, if applicable: Attendance, number of papers submitted, number of papers accepted
  • Names, affiliations, and research interest of the workshop organizers
  • Tentative list of program committee
  • What is the expected attendance of the workshop
  • How do you plan to attract submissions and/or participants
  • How do you plan to organize the workshop? Provide an estimate time line for the major milestones

Proposals should be sent to the workshops co-chairs:
