[ Download PDF ]

The Mobiquitous 2009 Workshop Chairs and the Mobiquitous Organizing Committee invite proposals for workshops to be held with the Sixth Annual International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Systems: Computing, Networking and Services.

Mobiquitous 2009 will be held in Toronto from July 13th – July 16th 2009. Workshops provide a forum for discussion among researchers and practitioners of areas of special interest within Mobiquitous--- from underlying technologies to applications, theory to practice, and data management and services all with the special focus on mobility and ubiquitous computing. The aim is to provide a forum for novel ideas and specific research questions. 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, and organize peer-review process for all the papers.

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


We expect workshops to complement the topics of Mobiquitous 2009. Areas of interest include: efficient context sensing on mobile platform, ubiquitous healthcare, reliability and security in disconnection tolerant networks, security and privacy in P2P embedded systems, social networking design and usability, service discovery and data query in participatory sensing etc.

Please contact the workshop chairs (see contact information below) to propose workshop or to discuss ideas. A formal workshop proposal should be at most five 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
  • Names, affiliations, and research interest of the workshop organizers
  • Tentative list of program committee
  • What is the expected attendance of the workshop
