Multimedia, will be held on December 3-6, 2012 at the Ulm University,

Important Dates:
Paper submission deadline:          August 31, 2012 (23:59 EST).
Notification of review decisions:  October 12th, 2012.

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. In addition to the peer-reviewed accepted papers, the
conference program will include keynote presentations, posters, demos,
an industry track, and a doctoral consortium.

We welcome high quality full and short paper submissions that offer an
original contributions relevant to the field of mobile and ubiquitous
multimedia. Successful full paper submissions typically represent a
significant advance for the field. Short papers offer a focused
contribution to the research program. Short papers are not work in
progress reports but offer completed, rigorously researched/developed
work that makes a significant contribution to the field of mobile and
ubiquitous multimedia. Short papers are likely to have a smaller scope
of contribution than full papers, but they are expected to make a solid
contribution to the field. Paper topics could include, but are not
limited to the following:

– Mobile and ubiquitous multimedia applications and systems
– Mobile user interfaces, interaction design and techniques
– Mobile games, entertainment and advertising
– Mobile social network and multimedia services
– Context-aware and location-based mobile and ubiquitous services
– Mobile Augmented Reality systems and applications
– Architectures, systems, and algorithms tackling technical challenges
of mobile systems
– Middleware and distributed computing support for mobile and ubiquitous
– Tools and development systems for building mobile and ubiquitous
multimedia systems
– Case studies, field trials, and user experience evaluations of new
applications and services
– Social and privacy implications of mobile and ubiquitous multimedia

We welcome submission of high quality papers, either in full paper
format (max 10 pages ACM format) or short paper format (max 4 pages ACM
format), that describe original and unpublished research advancing the
state of the art in mobile and ubiquitous multimedia. Papers should be
grounded in existing mobile and ubiquitous multimedia literature and
knowledge, and should be written for an interdisciplinary mobile and
ubiquitous multimedia audience.

Submissions should not have been previously published or be concurrently
under submission elsewhere. Papers must be anonymized and must contain
an abstract that is less than 150 words long and clearly states the
paper’s contribution to the field. Submitted PDFs must be no larger than
10 megabytes. Authors are encouraged to submit an illustrative video
(max 40 megabytes) to accompany their paper and to demonstrate their
system – if possible – at the conference.

Submitted papers will undergo a rigorous review process, managed by the
Technical Program Chairs. Final camera-ready versions of accepted papers
must be accompanied by a signed copyright form. Accepted full and short
papers will be included in the conference proceedings.

We welcome you to submit to MUM’12!
