***** Designing and Developing Innovative Mobile and Ubiquitous Solutions for Social Good *****


**** IMPORTANT DATES ***** 
15 August 2020 : Full Papers (10 pages), Short papers, demos and work in progress (5 pages) (EXTENDED)
25 September 2020: Acceptance Notification
20 October 2020: Camera-Ready Papers and Authors Registration
30 Nov - 2 Dec 2020: Conference Dates

***** Publication *****
ALL accepted MoMM2020 papers will be published by ACM International Conference Proceedings Series (ISBN: pending) and the supplemental proceedings which will be archived in the ACM Digital Library, and indexed by DBLP, Ei Compendex, Scopus and submitted to be reviewed by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI Web of Science). Selected high-quality papers will be invited to be published, after revision and extension, in special issues of international journals.

**** Scope *****
During the last decade, mobile computing and multimedia have gone through massive advancements in terms of both hardware innovations and software solutions. The emerging and exponential technologies have accelerated research across a wide array of topics such as smart cities, digital twins, nanotechnology, augmented and virtual reality, artificial intelligence, chatbots and conversational interfaces, edge computing and server-less cloud computing. While the new technologies and developments have the potential to affect our lives and create positive social impact, they introduce huge challenges in terms of the design, underlying algorithms, implementation and technology adoption. MoMM provides an opportunity for researchers to present, share and discuss their research results and experiences with other researchers and experts in the same or similar fields.

Recently, MoMM has been held in Munich (2019), Yogyakarta (2018), Salzburg (2017), Singapore (2016), Brussels (2015), Kaohsiung (2014), Vienna (2013), Bali (2012), Ho Chi Minh City (2011), Paris (2010), Kuala Lumpur (2009), and Linz (2008). This year, Chiang Mai, Thailand, the city centre for northern Thailand  arts and cultures will host MoMM2020. 


**** Submissions *****
MoMM accepted four different types of contributions:
- Original theoretical work: The contributions are expected to show original work that provide foundations to further progress research in the area. Rigorous proofs and/or performance measurements are expected for this type of contribution.
- Real world case study: The contributions are expected to show a real world case study of an adopted concept and technology. The analysis of the case study should provide an original insight and findings, backing up by data collected from experiments and/or observation.
- Experimental work: The contributions are expected to show reporting of rigorous comparative experiments of existing algorithms/systems to provide insight to the current state of the art in a research domain.
- Lessons learnt reports:  The contributions are expected to show lessons learnt from adoption of complex technology integration or implementation. 
Accepted papers and demonstrations from all three categories will be published in the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series.

**** Submission Guidelines ****
Papers and demonstration descriptions must be submitted electronically in PDF through the conference website. Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal, conference, or workshop with proceedings. Submitted demonstrations should convey a scientific result and should not be advertisements for commercial software packages. Submitted papers and demonstrations will be subject to stringent peer review by at least three members of the international program committee and carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of exposition. Accepted papers and demonstration descriptions will appear in the conference proceedings to be published by ACM. Format requirements for submissions of papers and demonstrations are:
- Maximum 10 pages, including the abstract (no more than 150 words), all figures and references for Full Technical papers.
- Maximum 5 pages, including the abstract (no more than 150 words), all figures and references for Short Position Papers.
- A video clip (for review purpose only) and a description of maximum 4 pages for the demonstration. The description should outline the underlying novel concepts, methods and/or approaches, and details about implementation, deployment, testing, and evaluation and user uptake.
- All submissions should be formatted according to ACM guidelines (https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template)
- Submissions must be entered into the Submission System (https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=momm2020)

**** Awards ****
MoMM2020 best paper awards, best student paper awards, and best demonstrations will be selected based on novelty, significance, and the presentation at the conference. Best student paper awards can only be awarded to papers on which students are first authors.
