The 1st ACM Workshop on Wireless and Mobile Computing for AgeTech (MobiCom4AgeTech) will be co-located with the 30th Annual International Conference on Mobile Computing and Networking (MobiCom 2024). The workshop will be held on November 18th, 2024 in Washington, D.C., USA and aims to bring together academic researchers, industry leaders, and government partners to present research and discuss challenges and opportunities at the intersection of wireless and mobile computing, AI and data analytics, and technologies for supporting aging. The workshop will include keynote presentations from aging research experts, contributed paper presentations and demos, panel discussions, and presentations from research funders and commercialization partners.

By 2060, it is estimated that nearly a quarter of the US population (over 95 million people) will be over the age of 65 and most will have multiple chronic conditions including cognitive impairment or dementia. Wireless and mobile computing has the potential to play a central role in the development of monitoring, assistive and interventional technologies for supporting healthy aging, an emerging area referred to as AgeTech. However, significant technology development challenges exist.

TOPICS: The workshop is seeking research papers, extended abstracts, and demo proposals that describe technologies and approaches that can be brought to bear on challenges in the AgeTech space, as well as papers that highlight novel challenges or gaps with existing technologies. Technologies, challenges, and AgeTech applications of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:

Technologies and Approaches:

  • earables
  • implantables
  • wearables
  • ambient and remote sensing
  • edge and cloud computing
  • virtual and augmented reality
  • machine learning
  • large language models (LLMs) and generative AI
  • integrated systems and platforms
  • Technology Development Challenges:

  • improving accuracy
  • decreasing bias
  • improving usability
  • improving access
  • lowering costs
  • enhancing privacy and security
  • reducing user burden
  • AgeTech Applications:

  • supporting activities of daily living and independent living
  • monitoring physical functioning and personal mobility
  • assessing and augmenting cognitive functioning
  • enhancing communication and social connectivity
  • supporting transportation use including driving safety and use of public transit
  • supporting care including remote health monitoring and adaptive interventions
  • SUBMISSION TYPES: As noted above, the workshop is accepting research papers, extended abstracts, and demo proposals. The details for each submission type are explained below.

  • Research papers should be between four and eight pages all-inclusive (references, figures, etc.) and must contain original material not previously published or currently submitted for consideration elsewhere. We encourage the submission of research papers that present novel technology solutions (including early and in-progress work), as well as vision/position papers describing novel challenges and gaps. Research papers will be accepted for oral or poster presentation and will be included in the workshop proceedings archived in the ACM Digital Library.
  • Extended abstracts are limited to one page plus references and may describe early work or work in progress. Extended abstracts will be presentation as posters and made available on the workshop website.
  • Demo proposals: should describe a technology or system and how it will be demonstrated at the workshop. Demo proposals are limited to one page plus references.
  • SUBMISSION PREPARATION: All submissions should be consistent with the ACM conference proceedings format. You are encouraged to use the ACM conference proceedings templates to prepare your submission. Latex users, please use ​\documentclass[sigconf,10pt]{acmart}​. If formatting your submission without using a template, please follow these requirements:

  • The font size must be no smaller than 10 points.
  • Double column format must be used with each column having dimensions 9.25 inches x 3.33 inches, a space of 0.33 inches between the two columns, and with no more than 55 lines of text per column.
  • US letter-sized paper must be used (8.5 inches by 11 inches).
  • All submission must include author names and affiliations. All submissions must be in PDF (Portable Document Format). Authors should ensure that submissions are compatible with Adobe Acrobat (English version). Any other formats, including Postscript and MS-Word, will not be accepted. Please limit the file size to less than 15 MB (contact the PC chairs if you have a file larger than this limit).

    SUBMISSION: Papers, extended abstracts and demo proposals will be submitted through using HotCRP conference management system hosted by MassAITC: Due dates are listed below.

    REVIEW PROCESS: The workshop will use a single blind review process. Papers should include author names. All submissions will be judged by their technical merit and relevance to the workshop based on reviews provided by the Technical Program Committee.

    REGISTRATION and ATTENDANCE: At least one author of each accepted contribution is expected to register for, attend and present at the workshop.
