Call for Workshop Proposals


The 21st EAI International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Systems: Computing, Networking and Services (MobiQuitous 2024) invites proposals for workshops to be held in Oslo, Norway, from November 12 to 15, 2024. We are soliciting workshop proposals on any topic relevant to Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing. All workshops will be held on November 15, 2024. Workshops are a great opportunity for community building and a forum for attendees with common interests. The aim of the conference workshops is to highlight new and emerging topics that are not covered in the main conference. Each workshop may comprise a combination of regular papers, invited presentations, keynotes, and panels that promote active participation and discussion among attendees. Accepted workshop papers will be 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: Deepak Mishra ([email protected]), Xiaomeng Su ([email protected]), and Tianyi Li ([email protected]).

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). The document should describe the following:

– Title of the workshop.
– Rationale and objectives for the workshop.
– The organizers’ backgrounds and bio.
– An estimate of expected attendance. In the case of follow-up workshops, please provide statistics from any previously held workshops.
– Names of potential participants, including program committee members and invited speakers (an indication that speakers have accepted to participate is a plus).
– A detailed plan (timeline) for conducting the workshop (including any plans for pre-workshop preparation and/or post-workshop follow-up).
– Planned format of the workshop, including the duration of the workshop (Half-day or Full-day), number of refereed papers, hot topic sessions, keynotes, panels (and panel formats) etc. Unique, creative and novel workshop formats are strongly encouraged and will be given particular consideration.
– Draft on Call for Papers (CFP) in maximum 1 page (excluded from the 4-page limit of the proposal and should be appended to the proposal).

Workshop selection

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).
