MUM 2018, the 17th International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Multimedia will be held in Cairo, Egypt, November 25th - 28th.
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.
Demos provide an opportunity to present a hands-on demonstration of your work, research, service, prototype or product addressing one or more of the suggested topics in the general call for participation. We want to see and play with 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.
Demo submissions should be 4-6 pages (excluding references) in the SIGCHI Extended Abstracts Format and should be accompanied by a one-page informal specification of the infrastructure requirements. Demo submissions contain an abstract that is less than 150 words long that clearly states the demo's contribution to the field. Authors are encouraged to submit an illustrative video to accompany their paper. Submissions will undergo a review process managed by the demonstration chairs.
Authors are required to submit an additional document (.pdf or .txt) with the list of hardware they would need to bring to the venue if their submission is accepted.
The demonstration chairs will investigate infrastructure and equipment possibilities for the accepted demonstrations. Participants are expected to bring the necessary equipment to the conference site with them. Demonstrations will be presented during the posters and demos session.
The video track is a forum that leaps off the page: vision videos, reflective pieces, humor, novel interfaces, games, AR systems, and anything else that is a good match for video and relevant to MUM. Videos will be shown to all attendees during a screening event at the first day of the conference. The video track is a great opportunity to showcase your work to the MUM community. Videos will be judged on their content and presentation, that is, how much they intellectually engage a MUM audience and how effectively they communicate their message. We are looking to create an enjoyable experience for the attendees. Interesting but poorly-produced videos may be rejected.
We welcome high-quality video submissions of any length up to 5 minutes, but 2-3 minutes is the more common length. We encourage the submission of videos either as new material or as supplemental to other submissions. Your video must be accompanied by a 4-6 pages (excluding references) paper in the SIGCHI Extended Abstracts Format unless your submission accompanies a short or full paper, poster, demo, or doctoral school submission currently under review at MUM. The video should be self-explanatory and not require the viewer to read the paper. Submissions will undergo a review process managed by the video chairs. Demos must be submitted via EasyChair.
It is very important that you have the rights to use all the material that is contained in your submission, including music, video, images, etc. Attaining permissions to use video, audio, or pictures of identifiable people or proprietary content rests with the author. Videos may show work that has been published or released previously. Please make clear in your submission any prior exposure your video has received. Video format: H.264 encoded MP4, at least 1280px x 720px, at most 5 minutes (2-3 minutes is a more common length)
Submissions should not have been previously published or be concurrently under submission elsewhere. Submissions should not be anonymized and will undergo a single-blind review process. Final camera-ready versions of accepted submissions must be accompanied by a signed copyright form. Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings published by ACM Press and included in the ACM Digital Library.
