21st International Conference
on Mobile and Ubiquitous Multimedia

Lisbon, Portugal


MUM 2022, the 21st International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Multimedia will be held in Lisbon, Portugal, November 27th - 30th.

MUM is an interdisciplinary forum for presenting the advances in research of mobile and ubiquitous multimedia systems, applications, and services. At MUM, academics and practitioners gather to discuss challenges and achievements in this field from diverse perspectives, such as interaction techniques, user research, system development, software solutions, and devices. This year's edition aims to continue the tradition of innovation and excellence in research established by previous MUM conferences.

The MUM poster track provides an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to present their early-stage and ongoing work on mobile and ubiquitous multimedia systems, services, interactions and experiences. The submissions can also describe preliminary research results that have not been fully designed, implemented or tested but show great promise, summarise several small-scale studies, or introduce novel, challenging and provoking research directions. Posters provide the opportunity for researchers and practitioners to present their work to the MUM community in an informal manner, receive valuable feedback on their research, discuss potential collaborations and address burning issues.


Topics of interest are those defined for the main paper conference track. They include, but are not limited to:

  • Architectures, systems, algorithms and other constructions tackling relevant technical challenges
  • Augmented, mixed, and virtual reality systems and applications
  • Case studies, field trials, or user experience evaluations of new applications and services
  • Conceptualizations and theorizations of the field
  • Context-aware and location-based mobile and ubiquitous services
  • Metrics and measures for evaluating and testing mobile and ubiquitous systems
  • Middleware and distributed computing support for mobile and ubiquitous multimedia
  • Novel applications for mobile and ubiquitous gaming, entertainment, networking, and advertising
  • Privacy and security related issues to multimedia systems
  • Social implications of mobile and ubiquitous multimedia systems
  • Tools and development environments for building mobile, wearable, and ubiquitous multimedia systems
  • User interfaces, interaction design, and interaction techniques for mobile and ubiquitous systems
  • Fabrication and device prototyping

Submission guidelines

Poster submissions should be maximum 3 pages long (excluding references), and should contain an abstract of maximum 150 words, that clearly states the poster's contribution to the field. The submission should be prepared as a PDF file, in single-column format, using either Word or LaTeX ACM Primary Article Templates. If LaTeX is used, single-column mode should be configured by using "\documentclass[manuscript,review,anonymous]{acmart}" as document class setting.

Poster papers must be submitted via EasyChair. The submissions will undergo a rigorous review process managed by the poster chairs. The authors of the accepted submissions will receive instructions about the format requirements for the poster. They are also expected to bring the posters to the conference site with them and be present throughout the posters and demos session of the conference.

Submissions should be anonymized and will undergo a double-blind review process. They should not have been previously published or be concurrently under submission elsewhere. Final camera-ready versions of accepted submissions must be accompanied by a signed copyright form. Accepted posters will appear in the Proceedings of the International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Multimedia. The proceedings will be available in the ACM Digital Library, where they will remain accessible to thousands of researchers and practitioners worldwide.

Authors are encouraged to submit an optional video of maximum 5 minutes to support their submission. To ensure videos can be viewed by all reviewers, authors should preferably use 720p or 1080p resolution, H.264 encoding and the MP4 file format. To accommodate the upload limits of EasyChair (max. 50mb per file), the bit rate of videos can be lowered.
