Call for Workshop Proposals

MobiQuitous 2023 invites proposals for workshops of the 20th EAI International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Systems: Computing, Networking and Services, to be held as an on-site conference (with an option to present remotely) in Melbourne, Australia, November 14-17, 2023.

We are soliciting workshop proposals on any topic relevant to Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing. All workshops will be held on 14th November 2023. 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 Springer digital library.

Pre-proposal Submission Inquiries

Should you wish to discuss ideas for a workshop proposal, feel free to contact the Workshop Chairs: Herodotos Herodotou ([email protected]) & Gregor Schiele ([email protected])

Workshop Proposal Content

The proposal should be prepared as a document of no more than 4 pages in the official Springer proceedings format using a tighter alternate style (Word, Latex). Also, please include a Call for Papers. The document should describe the topic, rationale, and objectives for the workshop, the organizers’ backgrounds and bio, and an estimate of expected attendance. In the case of follow-up workshops, please provide statistics from any previously held workshops and a detailed plan (timeline) for conducting the workshop (including any plans for pre-workshop preparation and/or post-workshop follow-up).

Workshop Selection Process

Workshops will be reviewed based on several factors, including:

  • The potential for the topic of the workshop to generate stimulating discussions and useful results.
  • The expected interest of the community in the workshop topic.
  • The quality, organization, and plan described in the workshop proposal.
  • Relevance to the main conference.

In the case of multiple submissions on similar topics, organizers may be encouraged to merge them.

The organizers of each workshop will:

  • Publicize the workshop with a call for participation via the MobiQuitous website
  • Set up your own website for the workshop containing more details on the workshop, including CFP, workshop format, plans for publication (if any), participants, program, etc.
  • Provide the address of the workshop website to conference organizers ( will then point to the individual workshop websites)
  • Encourage potential participants to submit papers
  • Work with the MobiQuitous Publication Chairs to include workshop papers in the Springer digital library and the supplementary proceedings
