MUM 2022, the 21st International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Multimedia will be held in Lisbon, Portugal, November 27th - 30th.
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 edition of MUM aims to continue the tradition of innovation and excellence in research established by previous MUM conferences.
The MUM demo track provides an opportunity to present a hands-on demonstration of your work, research, service, prototype, or product addressing one or more of the topics listed below. We want to see and play with your prototypes, services, devices, systems, and innovative examples of mobile and ubiquitous multimedia. We encourage making your demonstration visually or otherwise appealing to attract attention from conference attendees.
Demo 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
- Fabrication and device prototyping
Preparing the submission
Demo submissions should be maximum 3 pages (excluding references). The correct template for submissions is the ACM Primary Article Template in single-column format (in PDF format). Submissions should contain an abstract that is less than 150 words long that clearly states the demo's contribution to the field. Please use Interim Template for Microsoft Word users and sigconf Template for Latex users. Submissions will undergo a review process managed by the demonstration chairs. Demos must be submitted via EasyChair (link will be available soon).
This year, authors are required to submit a three minute video with their submission showing a detailed hands-on presentation of their demo as well as an additional document (.pdf or .txt) with the list of hardware they would need to bring to the venue in case the conference will have a physical part.
Demo submissions should not have been previously published or be concurrently under submission elsewhere. Demo 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 demos will appear in the Proceedings of the International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Multimedia.
