Students Workshop in MobiSys (SMS): The SMS workshop provides a unique venue for graduate students around the world to discuss research ideas for mobile and wireless systems. The workshop is organized by a student-run TPC. SMS workshop aims to foster early-career development among students, expose them to the workings of academic life, and encourage student leadership and participation in the research community. SMS 2021 will be held in conjunction with MobiSys 2021 .


SMS Workshop provides a unique venue for graduate students around the world to present, discuss, and exchange ideas on cross-cutting research on mobile wireless networks. As its name suggests, the workshop is organized by students, and the technical sessions are given by student presenters. Submissions must be first-authored by a student. The workshop aims at fostering early-career development among students and exposing them to the workings of academic life. It provides a venue for students to learn about each others’ work and discover opportunities for collaboration.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Experience with mobile applications, networks, and systems
  • Innovative mobile, mobile sensing, and mobile crowdsourcing applications
  • Tools for building and measuring mobile systems
  • Innovative wearable or mobile devices
  • Novel software architectures for mobile devices and mobile computing
  • Data management for mobile applications
  • Infrastructure support for mobile computing
