IEEE WoWMoM 2016 is soliciting original and previously unpublished papers addressing research challenges and advances in the areas of wireless, mobile, and multimedia networking as well as ubiquitous and pervasive systems.

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, and create and exploit context-awareness. Papers that present original work, validated by experimentation, simulation, or analysis, are solicited. Practical experiences and experimental efforts from both industry and academia, duly documenting the lessons learned from testbeds, field-trials, or real deployments, are also welcome.

Papers are invited which address new and previously unpublished results in the areas:
- Ad-hoc, sensor, mesh and vehicular wireless networks
- Content-centric architectures for wireless, mobile and multimedia networks
- Context-awareness in wireless, mobile and multimedia networks
- Cognitive communications and networking
- Dependability and survivability issues for wireless, mobile and multimedia networks
- Energy-efficiency for wireless, mobile and multimedia networks
- Internet/Web of Things
- Localisation, tracking, and mobility management and services
- Middleware services for wireless, mobile and multimedia networks
- Mobile clouds
- Mobile data offloading in 5G networks
- Mobile social networks
- Modelling, analysis, and performance evaluation
- Opportunistic and delay-tolerant networks
- Participatory, mobile and urban sensing
- Resource management and QoS/QoE provisioning
- RFID, NFC, and Machine-to-machine (M2M) communications
- Security, trust and privacy issues for wireless, mobile and multimedia networks
- Seamless inter-networking and self-organisation
- Software-defined wireless networks
- System prototypes, measurements, real-world deployment, and experiences
- Underwater wireless, mobile and multimedia networks
- Wireless BAN, PAN, LAN, MAN and WAN
- Wireless multimedia systems, services and applications

All submissions must describe original research, not published or currently under review for another workshop, conference, or journal.
Papers must be submitted electronically through EDAS using link

Authors can submit papers falling into two distinct paper categories (please select the appropriate one when submitting):
- Regular papers
Regular papers' submissions may be up to 9 pages in length (including figures and references), formatted in two-column IEEE conference style with font size 10 points or greater. For the camera ready, authors can buy one additional page up to 10 pages.

- Work-in-Progress papers
Work-in-progress papers provide a peer-reviewed forum for late-breaking or preliminary research results, giving an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to present and demonstrate their recent research, and to obtain feedback from their peers in an informal setting. Work-in-progress papers' submissions may be up to 3 pages in length (including figures and references), with the option of purchasing one extra page upon acceptance (up to 4 pages).

* For accepted papers, attendance and presentation by one of the authors ​*
* is mandatory. ​ *
* Submission implies the willingness of at least one author to attend ​*
* the conference and present the paper. Accepted papers will be included ​*
* in the proceedings of IEEE WoWMoM 2016 and submitted for publication ​ ​ *
* to IEEE Xplore. All conference proceedings must meet IEEE's quality ​ ​ *
* standards, and IEEE reserves the right not to publish any proceedings ​ ​ *
* that do not meet these standards. WoWMoM organizers reserve the right ​ ​ *
* to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g.,removal ​ ​*
* from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference. ​ ​*

- Abstract submission deadline: November 20, 2015
- Full manuscript due: November 27, 2015
- Acceptance notification: March 11, 2016
- Camera Ready: April 22, 2016

WoWMoM 2016 will offer a four-day technical program including keynote speeches, hot-topic panel sessions, tutorials, demonstrations, and PhD forum. Several workshops will be held in conjunction with the symposium. Workshop papers will be included and indexed in the IEEE Digital Library (IEEE Xplore), showing their affiliation with IEEE WoWMoM. The conference also provides a high quality social events program, including a welcome reception, a gala dinner, and a guided tour of the historical part of the University of Coimbra.

Technical demonstrations in the areas of wireless, mobile, and multimedia networking as well as ubiquitous and pervasive systems are solicited. Instructions for submitting a demo proposal will be posted in due time on the conference website.
