Call for Workshop Proposals

MobiQuitous 2018 invites proposals for workshops of the 15th International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Systems: Computing, Networking and Services, to be held in New York City, 5–7 November 2018.

We are soliciting workshop proposals on any topic of relevance to Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing. All workshops will be held on 5th November 2018 . Workshops are a great opportunity for community building and a forum for attendees with common interests. Accepted workshop papers are included in the adjunct proceedings of the Mobiquitous Conference and will be accessible via the ACM digital library.
