Tool Demos and Mobile Apps

Important date (2017)
January 20 January 31 Submission deadline
February 18 Notification
February 25 Camera-ready
May 22-23 Conference

We solicit demos of applications and tools from both academic and industrial researchers, showing new practical contributions to mobile software engineering. Authors of each accepted submission will give a short presentation of their solution, followed by a detailed demo session. We envision tool demo submissions addressing any aspect of tool support to help software architects, researchers, and practitioners, and mobile application submissions presenting novel aspects in mobile application development. Both tool demos and mobile application submissions can fall into one of the following two categories:

  1. Tools and apps in practice, either from commercial vendors or open-source projects. These demonstrations should focus on practical applications within the different activities of software architecting and should particularly show how they advance the current state of the practice. New ideas and features are particularly welcome.
  2. Tools and apps in research from academic or industrial research environments. These demonstrations are intended to highlight underlying scientific contributions and show how scientific approaches have been transferred into a working tool.

Both categories may range from early prototypes to in-house or pre-commercialized products. Authors of regular MOBILESoft papers are also welcome to submit an accompanying MOBILESoft Tool Demos and Mobile Apps paper by adding information regarding the actual demo. Each contribution must be submitted in the form of a two (2)-page short paper.

Formatting and Submission Instructions

All papers must conform, at time of submission, to the ACM Formatting Guidelines (LaTeX users, please use the “Option 2” style). All submissions must be in PDF format and use US Letter page format. Accepted papers will be published in the conference electronic proceedings and in both the ACM Digital Library and IEEE Digital Library.

Submit via Easy Chair:


At least one author of an accepted contribution is required to register, present the work, and participate during the discussions at the forum. Accepted papers will be published in the conference electronic proceedings and in both the ACM Digital Library and IEEE Digital Library.
