Call for Papers


4-7 June 2013, Madrid - Spain

IEEE WoWMoM 2013

The Fourteenth International Symposium on a

World of Wireless, Mobile and Multimedia Networks

Sponsored by: IEEE Computer Society, University of Texas at Arlington, and IEEE Technical Committee on Computer Communications (TCCC)

IEEE WoWMoM 2013 is soliciting original and previously unpublished papers addressing research challenges and advances towards a world of wireless, mobile, and multimedia pervasive communications.

The evolution of wireless networking technologies and their key role in future Internet scenarios offer an increasing wealth of opportunities for distributing multimedia contents over wireless networks, enabling dissemination of professional contents to mobile users as well as sharing user-generated contents among them. Users will be able to retrieve, publish, and manage information, communicate with other users or devices, access and author services, create and exploit context-awareness and so on. Papers that present original work, validated by experimentation, simulation, or analysis, are solicited. Practical experiences and experimental efforts from both industry and academy, duly documenting the lessons learned from testbeds, field-trials, or real deployments, are also welcome.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Wireless multimedia systems, services and applications
  • Opportunistic and delay-tolerant networks
  • Ad-hoc, sensor, mesh and vehicular wireless networks
  • Wireless BAN, PAN, LAN, MAN and WAN
  • Machine-to-machine (M2M) communications and the In-ternet of Things
  • Middleware services for wireless, mobile and multimedia networks
  • Context-awareness in wireless, mobile and multimedia networks
  • Content-centric architectures, multimedia content man-agement and distribution for mobile networks
  • Localization mechanisms and services
  • Participatory and urban sensing
  • Mobile social networking
  • Resource management and QoS/QoE provisioning
  • Multicasting and broadcasting issues
  • Handoff/ mobility management
  • Network management and control
  • Dependability, reliability and survivability issues for wireless,
    mobile and multimedia networks
  • Security and privacy issues for wireless, mobile and multimedia
  • Energy-efficient protocols and power management
  • Seamless internetworking and self-organization
  • Modeling, analysis, and performance evaluation

Papers presented at the symposium will be considered for a Best Paper Award. Papers of particular merit will be considered for a fast track publication in the Elsevier Pervasive and Mobile Computing Journal (PMC) .
