SIGMOBILE offers many opportunities for researchers and practitioners in mobile computing and wireless networking to share their ideas, to learn of new results and practices in the field, and to be active in a vibrant community of your colleagues interested in the area of mobility. 

Our flagship conference every year is MobiCom, the Annual International Conference on Mobile Computing and Networking, and is regularly attended by 500 or more researchers, developers, students, and others. SIGMOBILE also organizes and sponsors MobiHoc, the new International Symposium on Mobile Ad Hoc Networking and Computing, dedicated to this rapidly growing specialty; and sponsors and promotes a number of workshops and tutorials on timely and important topics. 

SIGMOBILE also publishes a quarterly journal for its members. Part journal and part newsletter, it publishes refereed and invited journal-style articles, news bits, conference and meeting reports, standards reports, regular articles on health effects, and announcements and Calls for Papers for related conferences and other events. SIGMOBILE also keeps its members informed about news and event announcements related to our field via a moderated email distribution list.

And SIGMOBILE recognizes the best in our field, through awards such as the SIGMOBILE Outstanding Contribution Award, the SIGMOBILE Distinguished Service Award, and the MobiCom Best Student Paper award
