Call For Papers

The Wireless of the Students, by the Students, and for the Students 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. 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:

  • Architectures, protocols, and algorithms in wireless networks.
  • Fundamental understanding of mobile computing and wireless networking.
  • Pricing of mobile and wireless networks and services.
  • Wireless and mobile techniques for delay tolerant, mobile ad hoc, vehicular, and wireless sensor networks.
  • Security and privacy of mobile and wireless systems.
  • Mobile sensing systems and applications leveraging mobile phones, wearables, robots, quad-copters, crowd-sourcing, etc.
  • Operating system and middle-ware support for mobile computing and networking.
  • Modeling, measurement, and simulation of mobile networks.
  • Experimental test-beds for mobile/wireless networks.
  • Energy efficiency aspects of mobile systems and wireless networks.
  • Systems for location and context sensing and awareness.
  • User interfaces, experience, and usability for mobile applications and systems.
  • Data management for mobile and wireless systems.

The workshop invites students to submit papers, posters, and demos through the following hotcrp link: All submissions will be peer-reviewed by the student TPC. We encourage students with a paper, poster, or demo at ACM MobiCom main conference to present their work at S3 as well. Please contact the TPC co-chairs at for any queries.

Paper Submission Instructions

Authors of selected and the invited papers will be expected to give a 10-minute talk at the workshop. Papers should be no longer than 3 pages, including figures and references, in the standard ACM conference format.

Poster/Demo Submission Instructions

Poster and demo submissions should have prefixes of “Poster:” and “Demo:” in the titles, and they should consist of a one-page abstract in the standard ACM conference format describing the demonstration plan or the outline of the poster content.
