MUM is a distinguished forum for advances in research and technologies that drive innovation in mobile and multimedia systems, applications, and services. At MUM academics and practitioners gather to discuss challenges and achievements from diverse perspectives, in a single track conference format. This year's conference aims to continue the tradition of innovation and excellence in research established by previous MUM conferences. In addition to the peer-reviewed accepted papers, the conference program will include keynote presentations, posters, demos, an industry track, and a doctoral consortium.

We welcome high quality full and short paper submissions that offer an original contributions relevant to the field of mobile and ubiquitous multimedia. Successful full paper submissions typically represent a significant advance for the field. Short papers offer a focused contribution to the research program. Short papers are not work in progress reports but offer completed, rigorously researched/developed work that makes a significant contribution to the field of mobile and ubiquitous multimedia. Short papers are likely to have a smaller scope of contribution than full papers, but they are expected to make a solid contribution to the field. Paper topics could include, but are not limited to the following:

- Mobile and ubiquitous multimedia applications and systems
- Mobile user interfaces, interaction design and techniques
- Mobile games, entertainment and advertising
- Mobile social network and multimedia services
- Context-aware and location-based mobile and ubiquitous services
- Mobile Augmented Reality systems and applications
- Architectures, systems, and algorithms tackling technical challenges of mobile systems
- Middleware and distributed computing support for mobile and ubiquitous multimedia
- Tools and development systems for building mobile and ubiquitous multimedia systems
- Case studies, field trials, and user experience evaluations of new applications and services
- Social and privacy implications of mobile and ubiquitous multimedia systems

We welcome submission of high quality papers, either in full paper format (max 10 pages ACM format) or short paper format (max 4 pages ACM format), that describe original and unpublished research advancing the state of the art in mobile and ubiquitous multimedia. Papers should be grounded in existing mobile and ubiquitous multimedia literature and knowledge, and should be written for an interdisciplinary mobile and ubiquitous multimedia audience.

Submissions should not have been previously published or be concurrently under submission elsewhere. Papers must be anonymized and must contain an abstract that is less than 150 words long and clearly states the paper's contribution to the field. Submitted PDFs must be no larger than 10 megabytes. Authors are encouraged to submit an illustrative video (max 40 megabytes) to accompany their paper and to demonstrate their system - if possible - at the conference.

Submitted papers will undergo a rigorous review process, managed by the Technical Program Chairs. Final camera-ready versions of accepted papers must be accompanied by a signed copyright form. Accepted full and short papers will be included in the conference proceedings.

We welcome you to submit to MUM'12!
