Call: MUM 2020, 19th International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Multimedia

Call for Papers

MUM 2020, the 19th International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Multimedia
22-25 November 2020
Essen, Germany (see Note below)

Submissions: August 10th, 2020
Notifications: October 1st, 2020
Conference Dates: November 22nd-25th, 2020

NOTE: Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we are currently looking into different ways to hold MUM2020. The latest developments show that the German government is loosening the meeting and travel restrictions, and we are currently exploring the idea of running a hybrid conference allowing physical as well as virtual participation by November. The safety of all attendees is our primary concern, and we have to consider the situations in many other countries to guarantee inclusiveness. Thus, even if we decide to run a hybrid conference format, we will make sure to facilitate virtual participation for all of our tracks at MUM2020. In any case, all submissions will follow the usual review and publication process. We will carefully follow the situation and will keep you updated.

MUM is an interdisciplinary forum for advances in research of mobile and ubiquitous multimedia systems, applications, and services. At MUM, academics and practitioners gather to discuss challenges and achievements in this field from diverse perspectives, such as interaction techniques, user research, system development, software solutions, and devices. This year’s conference continues the tradition and spirit established by previous MUM conferences.

We welcome submissions of high-quality papers that offer original and unpublished contributions relevant to the field of mobile and ubiquitous multimedia, either in long paper format (up to 10 pages excluding references) or short paper format (up to 4 pages excluding references). Successful long 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 complete, rigorously developed work, with a solid contribution to the field. Short papers have a smaller scope or more focused contribution than long papers.

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

  • Architectures, systems, algorithms and other constructions tackling relevant technical challenges
  • Augmented, mixed, and virtual reality systems and applications
  • 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, and advertising.
  • Privacy and security related issues to multimedia systems
  • Social implications of mobile and ubiquitous multimedia systems
  • Tools and development environments for building mobile, wearable, and ubiquitous multimedia systems
  • User interfaces, interaction design, and interaction techniques for mobile and ubiquitous systems

Papers should be grounded in existing literature and knowledge, and should be written for an interdisciplinary audience. Papers must be submitted via EasyChair ( at the latest by August 10th, 2020 AoE and follow the ACM Proceedings Template ( Use Interim Template for Microsoft Word users and sigconf Template for Latex users.

Submissions should not have been previously published or be concurrently under submission. Papers must be anonymized. Submitted papers will undergo a rigorous double-blind review process managed by the Technical Program Chairs. We are planning for accepted papers to be published in the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series available from the ACM Digital Library.
