7th IFIP Wireless and Mobile Networking
May 20-22, 2014 - Vilamoura, Algarve, Portugal
Organized by the Center of Informatics and Systems of the University of Coimbra
The 7th IFIP Wireless and Mobile Networking Conference (WMNC 2014) is sponsored by IFIP TC6 and IEEE. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.http://wmnc2014.uc.pt
A "Best Paper Award" and one "Student Travel Grant" will be conferred to the author(s) of a paper presented at the conference. Both awards are supported by IFIP.
Please note: Papers of special merit might be considered for fast track publication in the Computer Communications journal.
WMNC 2014 combines PWC (Personal Wireless Communications conference), MWCN (Mobile and Wireless Communication Networks conference), and WSAN (Wireless Sensors and Actor Networks conference) into one event. It will be held from 20th to 22nd of May 2014 in Vilamoura, Algarve, Portugal.
WMNC 2014 provides a forum for discussion between researchers, practitioners and students interested in new developments in mobile and wireless networks, services, applications and mobile computing. WMNC 2014 includes three tacks focusing on (but not limited to) the following topics:
