MUM is a distinguished forum for advances in research and technologies that drive innovation in mobile and multimedia systems, applications, and services. At MUM academics and practitioners gather to discuss challenges and achievements from diverse perspectives, in a single track conference format. This year’s conference aims to continue the tradition of innovation and excellence in research established by previous MUM conferences. In addition to the peer-reviewed accepted papers, the conference program will include keynote presentations, posters, demos, an industry track, and a doctoral consortium.

Topics for Industry Track Papers, Demos, Posters and Doctoral Consortium submissions could include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Mobile and ubiquitous multimedia applications and systems
  • Mobile user interfaces, interaction design and techniques
  • Mobile games, entertainment and advertising
  • Mobile social network and multimedia services
  • Context-aware and location-based mobile and ubiquitous services
  • Mobile Augmented Reality systems and applications
  • Architectures, systems, and algorithms tackling technical challenges of mobile systems
  • Middleware and distributed computing support for mobile and ubiquitous multimedia
  • Tools and development systems for building mobile and ubiquitous multimedia systems
  • Case studies, field trials, and user experience evaluations of new applications and services
  • Social and privacy implications of mobile and ubiquitous multimedia systems

Industry Track Papers:
The Industry Track is targeted towards practitioners and professionals working in the field of mobile and ubiquitous multimedia. Industry Track papers should show the application, commercial aspects and practical challenges in the areas listed above. Of special interest are also real-world examples that illustrate, e.g.: experiences in deploying and running such systems, lessons learnt in developing such systems and differences between research and practice. The difference to the full and short papers in the scientific track is in the practical, rather than strictly scientific, nature of the submissions. We welcome submission of high quality papers, either in full paper format (max 10 pages ACM format) or short paper format (max 4 pages ACM format). Papers should be written for an interdisciplinary mobile and ubiquitous multimedia audience. Paul Holleis and Sebastian Böhm Industry Track Chairs of MUM 2012 (

The MUM 2012 Demonstrations track provides an opportunity to present a hands-on demonstration of your work, research, service, prototype or product addressing one or more of the suggested topics mentioned above. We want to see and try your prototypes, services, devices, systems and any innovative example of mobile and ubiquitous multimedia. We encourage making your demonstration visually or otherwise appealing and presenting it in an innovative way in order to attract the participation of attendees. Demonstration submissions should have 2-4 pages (ACM format) and they should be accompanied by a one page specification of the infrastructural requirements.

The MUM 2012 Poster track provides an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to show and discuss novel mobile and ubiquitous multimedia services, interactions and systems that have not been fully designed, implemented or tested but show great promise; provoking topics; preliminary results; summaries of small-scale studies, etc. Posters provide the opportunity for researchers to get feedback on early-stage work, discuss potential collaborations and discuss the burning issues in MUM in an informal manner with the larger MUM community. Poster submissions should have 2 pages (ACM format) and they should be accompanied by a first version of the poster.

Doctoral Consortium:

Graduate students within different areas of mobile and ubiquitous multimedia are invited to take part in the Doctoral Consortium. This will be the place where lively and useful discussions enable students to receive suggestions about their on-going research and allow more experienced participants to encounter some fresh ideas and view some of the new trends in the field. The Doctoral Consortium provides an opportunity for doctoral students to discuss their research both with other students and with leading experts within the field. The consortium will take the form of a workshop where established MUM scholars take active part as discussants. The purpose is for students to receive constructive feedback on their thesis work so far, get advice about future developments, and share ideas and experiences with students in related areas.
