Conference Call for Papers

The ACM MobiCom conference seeks papers describing significant research contributions in the field of wireless networking and mobile computing. MobiCom solicits papers that address important research challenges, including but not limited to communication networks, energy, computing, security, and user experience. Successful papers should propose novel ideas to attack such problems through rigorous analysis, system design, and/or real-world measurement and deployment of mobile networks, systems, and applications.

We want MobiCom ’21 to be daring and emphasize novelty and creativity. The more novel the concept, the harder it can be to fully develop or evaluate all aspects, and the review process will take this into account. We encourage authors to discuss not only the significance but also the limitations of their ideas. We strongly encourage authors to describe how they will provide access to well-documented datasets, modeling and/or simulation tools, and codebases to support the reproducibility of their methods. MobiCom continues the two-deadline model and the reviewing process with a one-shot revision to improve the quality and timeliness of publications.

Overview

Top Research Topics at ACM/IEEE International Conference on Mobile Computing and Networking?

  • Computer network (40.82%)
  • Wireless (20.23%)
  • Real-time computing (14.90%)

The conference investigates studies in Computer network, Wireless, Real-time computing, Wireless network and Distributed computing. The work on Computer network tackled in ACM/IEEE International Conference on Mobile Computing and Networking brings together disciplines like Wireless ad hoc network, Throughput and Communication channel. The Wireless ad hoc network research dealing mostly with Optimized Link State Routing Protocol is the focus of the event.

In the event, researchers investigate the Wireless study as part of research in the field of Telecommunications. Topics in Real-time computing were tackled in line with various other fields like Wireless sensor network and Mobile device. The event tackles issues in Wireless network, particularly in the topics of Wireless WAN and Wi-Fi array.

The event dives deep in exploring the relationship between the study of Distributed computing and Scheduling (computing).

What are the most cited papers published at the conference?

  • GPSR: greedy perimeter stateless routing for wireless networks (6637 citations)
  • Directed diffusion: a scalable and robust communication paradigm for sensor networks (5454 citations)
  • A performance comparison of multi-hop wireless ad hoc network routing protocols (4671 citations)

Research areas of the most cited articles at ACM/IEEE International Conference on Mobile Computing and Networking:

The published papers primarily tackle Computer network, Distributed computing, Wireless network, Wireless and Real-time computing. The published articles focus on Computer network but sometimes tackle the closely related topic of Wireless ad hoc network which is concerned with Mobile ad hoc network. The Distributed computing research tackled in the most cited articles is interrelated with Wireless mesh network which concerns subjects like Mesh networking.

Papers citation over time

A key indicator for each conference is its effectiveness in reaching other researchers with the papers published at that venue.

The chart below presents the interquartile range (first quartile 25%, median 50% and third quartile 75%) of the number of citations of articles over time.

Publication chance based on affiliation

The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions at the conference edition to all articles published within that conference. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the conference.

The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.

Research.com

During the most recent 2021 edition, 2.41% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 25.93% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing at the conference. Another 11.11% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 20.99% of all publications and 41.98% were from other institutions.

Returning Authors Index

A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of conferences they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same conference from year to year.

The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the conference in relation to all participants in a given year.

The experience to innovation index

Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing at a conference. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a conference, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).

The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:

  • Novice - P < 5 or C < 25 (the number of publications less than 5 or the number of citations less than 25),
  • Competent - P < 10 or C < 100 (the number of publications less than 10 or the number of citations less than 100),
  • Experienced - P < 25 or C < 625 (the number of publications less than 25 or the number of citations less than 625),
  • Master - P < 50 or C < 2500 (the number of publications less than 50 or the number of citations less than 2500),
  • Star - P ≥ 50 and C ≥ 2500 (both the number of publications greater than 50 and the number of citations greater than 2500).
