Call For Papers

IFIP Wireless and Mobile Networking Conference

July 11-13, 2016 • Colmar, France

WMNC 2016 provides a forum for discussion for researchers, practitioners and students interested in new developments in mobile and wireless networks, services, applications and mobile computing. WMNC combines PWC (Personal Wireless Communications conference), MWCN (Mobile and Wireless Communication Networks conference), and WSAN (Wireless Sensors and Actor Networks conference) into one event.

Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and will be indexed in IEEEXplore. Authors of papers of special merit will be invited to send their extended versions to a Special Issue organized for this purpose in International Journals indexed in ISI Thomson and Scopus databases.

Authors are invited to submit full papers (up to 8 pages, double column) according to the guidelines available on the conference website at Authors Guidelines. WMNC 2016 includes three tacks focusing on (but not limited to) the following topics:

Track 1: Wireless and Mobile Communications and Networks

Track 2: Wireless Sensor and Actor Networks, Ad hoc and Opportunistic Networks, Vehicular Networks Cyber-Physical, Systems, Machine to Machine communications (M2M), Communication Technologies for the IoT, Ad-Hoc networking, Delay tolerant networking, Cross, layer design and optimization, In-network processing and aggregation of information, Energy, efficient protocols and power management, Localization and tracking, Middleware for WSN and M2M, Self, organization and reconfiguration, Security for WSN and M2M, Multimedia communications in WSN, Vehicular networks, Robots as actor networks, Nano networks, Fog Networking.

Track 3: Applications and Services over Wireless and Mobile Networks Wireless multimedia networking – Mobile cloud computing and applications, Multicasting and broadcasting issues, Multimedia session signalling in wireless/mobile environments, Digital radio and TV broadcasting, Mobile computing, Protocols and platforms for convergence, QoS and QoE in wireless/mobile networks, Mobile and wireless applications: health, environmental protection, Wireless Internet applications, ITS (Intelligent transportation systems), Infotainment, pervasive systems, RFID, Location, based services, Mobile services, Content management and distribution, Context, aware wireless multimedia applications, Context-aware services, Information centric networking, Social networking.

WMNC'2016 technical program committee invites authors to submit manuscripts with original research results that have not been previously published or that are not currently under review by another conference or journal. The following contributions are welcome: (i) Research papers reporting on new trends and developments, (ii) Application papers reporting on academia developments of technologies, products, services, systems and solutions, (iii) Performance evaluation and experimentation papers, (iv) Industry practice papers.

Submissions will be judged based on originality, significance, clarity, relevance, and correctness. All submitted papers will be subject to peer reviews by Technical Program Committee members and other experts in the field. Papers presented at the symposium will be considered for a Best Paper Award.
