Call for Papers

9th International Wireless Communication and Mobile Computing (IWCMC 2013)
Wireless Networks Symposium

1-5 July 2013, Cagliari,Italy



The emergence of user mobility is due to the development of devices like PDAs and specially the wireless technologies. Wireless networks are expected to encompass heterogeneous access technologies and the Internet backbone for providing services to both mobile and fixed users.

It poses significant technical challenges to enable broadband wireless access with seamless and ubiquitous coverage and quality-of-service provisioning. The objective of this symposium is to exchange and proposes new ideas and results that can improve the actual wireless systems or protocols.


Original papers are invited on emerging architectures and technologies in the design of Wireless Wide Area Networks (WWAN), wireless local area networks (WLANs) wireless personal area networks (WPANs) with emphasis on the use of such networks in diverse areas of applications such as supporting ubiquitous mobile Internet access, and the design of ad-hoc networks, and sensor networks. The symposium solicits high quality and previously unpublished work in the field.
