Full and short paper submission:  September 15, 2010
Tutorial proposal submission:  September 15, 2010
Poster and demo submission:  September 15, 2010
Notification of acceptance:  October 18, 2010

FULL PAPER submissions should not exceed 10 pages in the ACM publishing format ( Submissions should describe original and unpublished work. They should be made in electronic form, through the MUM 2010 EasyChair Conference System ( in pdf format.

SHORT PAPERS are an opportunity to publish late breaking results, system implementations and practical approaches that would be beneficial to the community of researchers and practitioners and have not been published elsewhere. MUM Short papers are rigorously reviewed as shorter and focused submissions that enable the authors to disseminate technical insights. Short papers should not exceed 4 pages in the ACM format.

TUTORIAL PROPOSALS: We invite proposals for a half-day tutorial related to the topics of the conference. Please send the proposal directly to the tutorial chair. Submissions should include a cover sheet and an extended abstract (max. 2 pages).

The cover sheet should specify: 

  • The title and the length of the tutorial
  • The intended audience (introductory, intermediate, advanced)
  • Any background knowledge or skills required
  • Complete contact information for the contact person and other presenters
  • A brief biography (maximum 2 paragraphs) for each presenter

The extended abstract should provide sufficient information about the scope of the topic and the depth to which it will be covered: 

  • A description of the coverage
  • A description of the tutorial objectives
  • An outline of the tutorial
  • Its relevance to the community

POSTERS provide authors with an opportunity to present their new work or work in progress to conference attendees during an interactive poster session. A poster submission should be in the form of a two-page paper in ACM abstract format (doc, pdf), describing the research problem, contribution, and value to MUM community. For the presentation at the conference, the authors should prepare an A1 size poster. A preview of the poster should be submitted with the final version of the poster abstract.

Accepted poster abstracts will be published together with demonstration abstracts in the MUM Conference Proceedings, and distributed to conference attendees. Poster abstracts and previews should be submitted electronically to the Demo & Poster Chair.

Through peer-reviewed DEMONSTRATIONS, the authors can show early implementations of novel and important concepts, applications, and services for mobile and ubiquitous multimedia. They can also showcase technology toolkits, research tools, and commercial products not previously described in the research or technical literature. We particularly encourage demos with which attendees can interact. A demo submission consists of an extended abstract in ACM abstract format (doc, pdf) that should be no longer than two pages. Accepted demonstration abstract will be published in the MUM Conference proceedings. The demo abstracts should be submitted electronically to the Demo & Poster Chair.
