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
This year¹s 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,
pre-conference workshops and a doctoral consortium.
Accepted full and short papers, industry track papers, demos and
posters will be included in the conference proceedings published by ACM Press
and included in the ACM Digital Library.
Demonstration Papers and Posters:
The MUM 2013 Demonstrations track provides an opportunity to present a
hands-on demonstration of your work, research, service, prototype or
product addressing one or more of the suggested topics in the general
call for participation for full and short papers. We want to see and try
your prototypes, services, devices, systems and any innovative example of
mobile and ubiquitous multimedia. We encourage making your
demonstration visually or otherwise appealing and presenting it in an innovative way in order to attract the participation of attendees.
The MUM 2013 Poster track provides an opportunity for researchers and
practitioners to show and discuss novel mobile and ubiquitous
multimedia services, interactions and systems that have not been fully designed,
implemented or tested but show great promise; provoking topics;
preliminary results; summaries of small-scale studies, etc. Topics of
interest are the same as mentioned in the CFP for short and full
papers. Posters provide the opportunity for researchers to get feedback on
early-stage work, discuss potential collaborations and discuss the
burning issues in MUM in an informal manner with the larger MUM community.
Demonstration submissions should have 2-4 pages (ACM format) and they
should be accompanied by a one page specification of the infrastructural
requirements. Demo submissions must be anonymized (remove author and
institutional identities, acknowledgement) and must contain an abstract
that is less than 150 words long that clearly states the demo’s
contribution to the field. Submitted PDFs must be no larger than 10
megabytes. Authors are encouraged to submit an illustrative video (max
20 megabytes) to accompany their demo paper. The link for submissions will
be provided well in advance of the deadlines.
Poster submissions should have 2 pages (ACM format) and they should be
accompanied by a first version of the poster. The posters are
recommended to be in A0 format (84cm x 119cm / 33 x 47), and must be in portrait orientation. Papers must be anonymized (remove author and institutional
identities, acknowledgement) and must contain an abstract that is less
than 150 words long that clearly states the poster’s contribution to
the field. Attachments (the poster file, accompanying videos) must be
anonymized as well. Submitted PDFs must be no larger than 10 megabytes.
Allowed video file types and formats are MP4, MPG, MOV, and AVI.
Demonstration Papers and Posters must be submitted through EasyChair.
Submissions will undergo a review process managed by the Demonstration

to be in A0 format, in portrait orientation. Authors are expected to bring
the accepted posters to the conference site with them and be present
throughout the poster session.
The Demonstration and Poster Chairs will investigate infrastructure and
equipment possibilities for the accepted demonstrations. Participants
are expected to bring the necessary equipment to the conference site with
them. Demonstrations will be presented during the demo session at the
