The ever increasing market penetration of smart-phones, tables, and netbooks, along with the ubiquitous availability of wireless networks are deeply influencing the way people live, work, interact, and socialize. However, the broad popularity and diffusion of innovative services and applications tailored at mobile users is also raising challenging research issues that require us to rethink available mobile technology solutions to meet the emerging needs of a broader and ever growing user base.
The goal of iCOST’2011 is to bring together researchers and scientists to present and discuss advances on selected topics in Mobile & Wireless Networking. The conference aims to address recent research results and to present their methodologies, models, technologies, systems, tools, applications, work in progress and experiences.
The 2011 edition of iCOST will be orgazined in Shanghai, collocated with IEEE WiMOB 2011. Shanghai is the largest city in China, located in the eastern coast at the south bank. The city is an emerging tourist destination and is renowned for both its historical landmarks, such as Xintiandi and Bund, and for the modern Pudong skyline.
The iCOST’2011 technical program will deliver high quality technical papers that will be reviewed and selected by an international program committee.
