In MobileHCI 2009 all initial submissions and reviewer applications for the technical program are handled through the MobileHCI 2009 Conference Review System (CRS). This implies that submissions for the conference categories: Full Papers, Short Papers, Demonstrations&Experiences, Design Competition, Doctoral Consortium, Panels, Posters, Workshops and Industrial Case Studies follow the same submission procedure.
The submission procedure consisted of the following steps (reviewers are referred to step 2 only):
1) Prepare your submission using the formatting instructions. Please check the specific formatting instructions of the conference category you want to contribute to. Make sure you follow these instructions (e.g. anonymous, page length) in order to submit a valid contribution.
2) Create an account using the MobileHCI 2009 CRS. Note that only one such account is needed for multiple submissions (be it for one or several conference categories). During your registration with the CRS, you will receive an email with important usage instructions. Please keep this email for your record.
3) Upload your contribution using the links in the CRS. All documents should be submitted in PDF format. If your submission contains both a document and a video file then both should be packed in one ZIP file. You are kindly requested to test for valid files before uploading. The CRS will recode the filename in order to make it anonymous for the review phase.
Depending on the phase of the conference preparation you will be able to modify and re-upload the contribution. Please consult both the general deadline overview and the category specific deadlines. Late submissions will not be accepted.

Formatting Final Camera-ready Version
For instructions on how to format the final camera-ready version of your submission, see the Formatting Instructions page.
Please make sure that the metadata (e.g. title, authors) in the OpenConf form (that you have used for your earlier submission) is consistent with the information in the camera ready version. Additional metadata (e.g. Categories & Subject Descriptors) can be inserted into the “Benefits Statement” field.
(including affiliation, and e-mail addresses)
Categories & Subject Descriptors
(Even if your final camera-ready version of your submission does not include keywords in the body, you should specify keywords during submission to make your e-publication better searchable. )
(ACM would like to collect the references/citations used within your paper in straight clean text, so these can be used to enhance the capabilities of the ACM Digital Library.)
Signed Copyright Form
Please download, fill out, date and sign the proper copyright form for your submission category. For all categories we need a dated and signed* Permission and Release form.
*Note: Only one form is usually needed and can be signed by the first or contact author. A second form may be requested from co-authors depending on any US government affiliations.
U.S. Government employees or contractors
Please contact email@example.com for the correct copyright statement and information for your submission. You will need to supply us the name of each author and their affiliations to receive the proper copyright statement and information.
What to Upload
You should upload one zip file, containing multiple files:
Signed and Dated Permission and Release Form
You should include a signed and dated copyright form for your submission in the zip file. Please check in the table above that you used the right form for your submission category.
Portable Document Format (.pdf) file
We need a properly produced .pdf file of your final camera-ready submission according to ACM specifications (see the Formatting Instructions page). Please check that your submission adheres to the set page limit for your type of submission (see table above).
File Naming Scheme
The names of the files IN the zip file should be named as follows:
(category code)(paper ID)-(firstauthorlastname).(extension)
Where all characters are in lower case and paper ID should always be 3 positions.
The copyright form(s) should be named as follows:
(category code)(paper ID)-(authorlastname)-copyright.pdf
For example, if your submission category is Full Papers, your paper ID is 3, and your last name is “Miller”, we request that you name the files in the zip file as follows:
Another example, if your submission category is Posters, your paper ID is 12, and your last name is “Smith”, we request that you name the files in the zip file as follows:
You are free to choose the name of the zip file itself, since the MobileHCI 2009 Conference Review System (CRS) will rename it anyway.
Acknowledgement of Receipt
You will receive an immediate and automatic acknowledgment of receipt of your upload. Due to the volume of submissions, it may take a few days to two weeks for us to process and check your submission and signed forms manually. Submissions that do not conform to the ACM and MobileHCI 2009 specifications will be returned to the author for corrections.
If you have questions about these submission instructions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
These instructions are based on submission instructions from Sheridan Printing for other ACM conferences.
