Abstract

It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the twenty-third edition of the International Workshop on Mobile Computing Systems and Applications --- HotMobile 2022. This year continues the tradition of selective, highly interactive workshops that discuss the latest ideas in mobile systems and applications, along with new breakthroughs in underlying technologies. HotMobile's small workshop format makes it ideal for presenting and discussing new directions or controversial approaches.

Our technical program includes two keynotes by Daniel Schumacher, the Director of Digital Innovation at Komatsu and David Chu, the VP Engineering of Magic Leap, 18 technical papers, and a Demo & Poster session. The Program Committee of 18 scholars selected the 18 full papers out of 43 submissions, resulting in an acceptance rate of 42%. All submissions received at least four reviews, and some received five. A full-day PC meeting was held online to make the final decisions. Each accepted paper was shepherded by a PC member to help the authors improve their final paper. The PC members demonstrated a strong commitment to the selection process by submitting high-quality reviews and engaging in the discussions as well as the shepherding process, and we sincerely thank them for their valuable efforts. Accompanying the full papers are a set of posters and demonstrations of exciting early stage research from the community. Collectively, our program spans a range of interesting and important topics, which reflects the breadth and the quality of the research activities in the mobile computing field.
