MobiSys’19 is proud to present Rising Stars Forum, a venue for young scholars to present their latest research works, to receive useful advices for different aspects of their early career, and to network with fellow young scholars in the community. This year’s edition has slightly different objectives from previous editions of “Ph.D. Forum.” One key change is to include elements that aims to expand the audience to include not just Ph.D. students, but also those who would like to start their Ph.D. study soon, as well as the fresh Ph.D. graduates who just start their career, e.g., postdoc or junior faculty. If you fall into any of these categories, you are welcome to submit or participate! In addition, as this year’s MobiSys will take place in Asia, we would like to promote participation of young scholars from the Asia region!
The forum will solicit submissions which describe early-to-mid-term research. This could be a research idea that just starts to form, or has preliminary results, but not something that is already completed and published with full results. The rationale behind this is to get useful suggestions for the research at the forum while in early to mid stage of a research. Based on the review results, the accepted papers will be split into two categories: full papers, which will be given a slot for oral presentation, and posters, which will be presented in the poster session. A few accepted papers will be explicitly selected from the ones with the author from the Asia region. Regardless of the categories, accepted papers will be included in the forum proceeding, as an adjunct proceedings of MobiSys’19.
At the forum, the chairs will invite several senior researchers from the community to serve as mentors and provide comments to the presentation of the accepted papers. The audience in the presentation sessions will also be able to give anonymous comments via a real-time online system. These will be collected and given to the author after the workshop. We hope that this would provide valuable opportunity for the young scholars to get honest, useful, and diverse suggestions for their research.
Other than the oral presentation and the poster sessions, the forum will also include two keynote speeches and a panel. Their missions are to help young scholars, especially those from the Asia region, to overcome common obstacles in their research career. For example, how can we organize the technical content better in the paper as well as in our presentation? How do we get inspired to come up with a research problem and properly define its scope? The keynote speeches will focus on some of these issues, and the panel will be held in a form that allow the audience to ask honest, anonymous (if you want to), or even sensitive questions that we might face in our early career.
To help promoting the event, the Rising Stars Forum is glad to announce the following sponsorships from the MobiSys'19 main conference. The authors of accepted papers in the oral presentation catogory will be granted:
1) Waiver of the MobiSys'19 registration fee for both the main conference and the workshop (only for the rising stars forum on June 21)
2) Student travel grant to support partial travel expanses. (The author will need to send their application to the student travel grant co-chair and the application will be given priority to be approved*.)
We hope that this will encourage young scholars to submit your research statement to the forum!
*MobiSys’19 Student Travel Grant Website: www.sigmobile.org/mobisys/2019/student-travel-grant
Grant application deadline: May 1, 2019
The author of accepted papers will be given both the options of including their manuscript in the forum proceeding or NOT including their manuscript in the forum proceeding.
The Rising Stars Forum of MobiSys 2019 aims to provide an opportunity to bring together young scholars in the top international mobile and system research community, to present their early research works to their peers, and to gain valuable, honest, and diverse suggestions from senior mentors and the participants of the forum.
The forum solicits submissions describing early-to-mid-stage research works, mainly conducted by a young scholar as the author. The author can be a student who intends to enter Ph.D. study soon, a junior or senior Ph.D. student, or a recent Ph.D. graduate. Topics of interests include, but are not limited to, those listed in the main conference call for papers (https://www.sigmobile.org/mobisys/2019/cfp/). The submission is not a typical technical paper which include comprehensive results, but one that describes perhaps a new research idea that just starts to form, or a research project that just has a round of preliminary results. This allows the author of the accepted papers to get useful suggestions for the research at the forum, and leverage these advices to redirect their research.
The submitted manuscript should be four (4) to six (6) pages in length, written in English, and must use the standard ACM conference template. A bio or up to one page CV is REQUIRED to be attached in the submission. Only Adobe PDF files will be accepted for the review process. All submissions must be made via the HotCRP site at: https://mobisys19risingstars.hotcrp.com/
The submitted manuscripts will undergo a peer review process conducted by the technical program committee, formed by young scholars as committee members and the forum co-chairs as the committee co-chairs. If accepted, the manuscript will be put into two categories: (1) oral presentation: the author will present the research outlined in the submission in an oral presentation session; (2) poster: the author will present the research outlined in the submission in a 2-min lightning presentation slot and in a poster session. The author of accepted papers will be given both the options of including their manuscript in the forum proceeding or NOT including their manuscript in the forum proceeding.

The S3 Workshop provides a unique venue for graduate students around the world to plan, manage, and experience a vibrant workshop focused on research in all aspects of mobile wireless networks. It encompasses both theory and systems research, exposing participants to the full breadth of research in networking. As its name suggests, the workshop is organized by students, and the technical sessions are given by student presenters. It aims to foster early career development among students and expose them to the workings of an academic life. It encourages students to actively participate in the networking research community and offers unique networking opportunities.
Sponsoring S3 will give your organization increased visibility within the computer networking and mobile computing community, especially among talented PhD students. Supporting this student-organized workshop will benefit the community of student researchers. This focused venue will be a great opportunity for companies to attract the future researchers to them. We will acknowledge all supporters during the conference opening remarks and prominently display company names and logos on the S3 website. You can also direct your funds to name specific awards such as Travel Grants (which will encourage huge participations), Best Papers, Best Posters, Best Presentation, Best Questions, Best Demos etc. With your sponsorship, S3 will give financial awards to the student attendees and TPC members, who otherwise may not be able to attend due to financial constraints.
S3 has been held in conjunction with ACM MobiCom, one of the most prestigious conferences in mobile networking, for the past seven years. Previous workshops have attracted over 60 participants, including several ACM MobiCom attendees. Traditionally, the workshop has been sponsored by ACM SIGMOBILE and industry partners.

Abstract: In this talk, we discuss a few important guidelines and tips for conducting good systems research. These tips cover various aspects of a systems research project including ideas (e.g., tips on how to judge an idea and how to come up with ideas), execution (e.g., tips on how to build a research prototype and how to tackle implementation challenges), and evaluation. When discussing each of the tips, we provide examples from the speaker’s own experience as a systems researcher.
