WMNC 2014

7th IFIP Wireless and Mobile Networking Conference

May 20-22, 2014

Vilamoura, Algarve, Portugal

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.

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:

Track 1: Wireless and Mobile Communications and Networks

Wireless technologies design and evaluation - Handoff management - Location management - Resource management - Network and service management and control - Energy management and efficiency of protocols and devices - Cognitive radio networking - Device-to-device communications - Routing and scheduling in mobile and wireless networks - Transport layer issues in mobile and wireless networks - Network security solutions and protocols - Subscriber privacy - Authentication, Authorization, Accounting - Traffic and network modelling - Analysis, and simulation in wireless/mobile networks - Virtualized and cloud-based wireless.

Track 2: Wireless Sensor and Actor Networks, Ad hoc and Opportunistic Networks, Vehicular Networks

Machine to Machine communications (M2M) - 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 - Physical architectures - Real-time communications in WSN - Vehicular networks - Robots as actor networks - Nano networks.

Track 3: Applications and Services over Wireless and Mobile Networks

Paper Submission Guidelines

WMNC 2014 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. Two types of submissions are solicited: regular papers (limited to 8 double column pages with the IEEE eXpress Conference Publishing template) and Work-in-Progress and Industry practice (limited to 4 double column pages). Font size must be no smaller than 10-points. Manuscripts must be submitted electronically in PDF format through the EDAS system. 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. 

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.
