Call for Papers

The technical papers track of MOBILESoft invites high quality submissions involving significant, novel, and emerging solutions for mobile application software engineering. These should be well-motivated, carefully compared, and contrasted with significant related research.

We welcome contributions related to mobile application software engineering including technological advancements, architectural approaches, advancements in design and implementation methods, testing and analysis approaches, user interfaces and HCI, business and organizational issues, and empirical studies.

We solicit contributions of full papers (up to 10 pages, with up to 2 additional pages only for references), and short papers (up to 4 pages, with 1 additional page only for references). Full papers are expected to make a significant new research or practical contribution. Short papers are expected to present an interesting, well-developed contribution of more modest proportions. Papers should include methodology, implementation, results, and discussion as appropriate. Solutions are expected to be rigorously evaluated. Paper must not have been published elsewhere and must not be under review elsewhere whilst under consideration at MOBILESoft. We invite contributions from both academia and industry.

Formatting and Submission Instructions

Submissions must conform to the IEEE formatting instructions IEEE Conference Proceedings Formatting Guidelines, (title in 24pt font and full text in 10pt type, LaTeX users must use \documentclass[10pt,conference]{IEEEtran} without including the compsoc or compsocconf options).

All submissions must be in PDF. The page limit is strict. Papers that do not conform to these guidelines will be desk rejected before the review process.

MOBILESoft 2021 will follow a double-blind review process. Thus, no submission may reveal its authors’ identities. The authors must make every effort to honour the double-blind review process. In particular: (i) the authors’ names must be omitted from the submission, (ii) references to their prior work should be in the third person, and (iii) supplementary material (e.g., experiment replication package, YouTube video, source code of the proposed approach) should be provided anonymously. Any submission that does not comply with the double-blind review process will be rejected by the Technical Track PC Co-Chairs without further review.

Submission

Submissions to the Technical Track can be made via https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=mobilesoft2021 by the submission deadline.
