Instructions for Authors


SMARTOBJECTS invites submission of original work not previously published or under review at another conference or journal. The workshop will accept full paper, poster, and demo submissions. All submissions must be provided in PDF format, and follow the formatting guidelines of MobiCom 2015. Full papers must be no longer than 6 pages, poster and demonstration papers are limited to 2 pages. SMARTOBJECTS follows a single-blinded review process.

All submission must use a 10pt font (or larger) and be correctly formatted for printing on Letter-sized (8.5" by 11") paper. Paper text blocks must follow ACM guidelines: double-column, with each column 9.25" by 3.33", 0.33" space between columns and single-spaced. The abstract should contain less than 250 words.

To maximize the chances that papers will print correctly, only standard printer fonts (e.g., Times Roman, Helvetica, etc.) or standard TeX Computer Modern fonts should be used; other fonts may be used but must be included in the PDF file. The paper must print clearly on standard black-and-white printers. Reviewers may not view a paper in color. Symbols and labels used in the graphs should be readable as printed.

Accepted works will be published in the proceedings. An extended version of the accepted papers will be proposed for possible publication in the forthcoming special issue (SM 160: Special issue on experiences with the design and implementation of mobile smart objects) of the ACM/Springer Mobile Networks & Applications (MONE) Journal
