CALL FOR PAPERS
The Second International Workshop on Wireless Networks and Multimedia (WNM-2011), Changsha, China, 16-18 November, 2011
To be held in conjunction with the 6th FCST-2011. The accepted papers from this workshop will be published in the FCST-11 conference/workshop proceedings by IEEE Computer Society, and will be indexed by EI Compendex and ISTP.
Distinguished selected high-quality papers from the workshop, after further significant extensions, will be recommended for submission and possible publication in the Elsevier Journal
- Simulation Modelling Practice and Theory (Indexed by SCI)
The wireless communication technologies have evolved quickly over the past years. As the explosive growth in broadband wireless networks, multimedia applications will dominate the future wireless communication society, resulting in non-trivial problems in terms of available capacity, reliability, quality-of-service, delay, and throughput.
To successfully support wireless multimedia applications, it is necessary to improve the state-of-the-art techniques (such as radio resource management, mobility, handoff, and location management, etc.) in the multimedia transmission over wireless networks in order to provide quality-of-service guarantees between the end-users and achieve a high quality-of-experience for end-users.
This workshop will address the important problems and challenges caused by the transmission of multimedia applications over wireless networks. The workshop aims to bring together computer scientists and engineers in different disciplines to share and exchange their experience and ideas and discuss state-of-the-art and in-progress research on all aspects of wireless networks and multimedia applications.
The topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to:
- Ultra-Wideband Networks
- Wireless Ad Hoc and Mesh Networks
- Wireless Personal Area Networks
- Wireless Local Area Networks
- Wireless Sensor Networks
- Wireless Metropolitan Area Networks
- Cellular Networks
- Optical Wireless Access Networks
- Mobile Computing and Wireless Communications
- Multimedia Communications and Services
- Congestion and Admission Control
- Wireless MAC Protocols: Design and Analysis
- Quality of Service Provisioning
- Wireless Network Security and Privacy
- Cognitive Radio and Software Defined Radio
- Cross-Layer Design and Adaptation
- Radio Resource Management
- Mobility, Handoff and Location Management
- Performance Modeling and Evaluation
