MUM 2019, the 18th International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Multimedia, will be held on 26-29 November 2019 at the CNR Area of Research in Pisa, Italy.


The International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Multimedia (MUM) is a leading annual international conference which provides a forum for presenting the latest research results on mobile and ubiquitous multimedia. The conference brings together experts from both academia and industry for a fruitful exchange of ideas and discussion on future challenges, in a comfortable and effective single-track conference format. This year’s conference continues the tradition of innovation and excellence established by previous MUM conferences. In addition to the peer-reviewed accepted papers, the conference program will include keynote presentations, posters, demos and a video track. The conference will also have a co-located doctoral school. The technical program will be complemented by social events to facilitate informal discussions and networking among the conference attendees and invited guests.


Conference topics include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Augmented and Mixed Reality systems and applications
  • Architectures, systems, algorithms and other constructions tackling relevant technical challenges
  • Case studies, field trials, or user experience evaluations of new applications and services
  • Conceptualizations and theorizations of the field
  • Context-aware and location-based mobile and ubiquitous services
  • Metrics and measures for evaluating and testing mobile and ubiquitous systems
  • Middleware and distributed computing support for mobile and ubiquitous multimedia
  • Novel applications for mobile and ubiquitous gaming, entertainment, networking, advertising, etc.
  • Social and privacy implications of mobile and ubiquitous multimedia systems
  • Tools and development environments for building mobile and ubiquitous multimedia systems
  • User interfaces, interaction design and interaction techniques for mobile and ubiquitous systems


We welcome submissions of high-quality papers that offer original and unpublished contributions relevant to the field of mobile and ubiquitous multimedia, either in full paper format (max. 10 pages excluding references) or short paper format (max. 4 pages excluding references). Successful full paper submissions typically represent a significant empirical, theoretical or methodological advances in the field. Short papers offer more focused contributions; they are not work in progress reports but offer completed, rigorously researched/developed work with a solid contribution to the field. Short papers are likely to have a smaller scope of contribution than full papers.

Papers must be submitted via EasyChair ( and follow the SIGCHI Paper Format.
