Sixth International Conference on Selected Topics
in Mobile & Wireless Networking (MoWNet’2017)
May 17-19, 2017, Avignon, France
** Request for Sponsor by IEEE Computer Society, TCCC **
** Included in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library **


The Sixth International Conference on Selected Topics in Mobile & Wireless Networking (MoWNet'2017) will be held in Avignon, France. It follows MoWNet'2016, MoWNet’2014, MoWNet’2013, iCOST’2012 and iCOST’2011 which were held in Cairo/Egypt, Rome/Italy, Montreal/Canada, Avignon/France and Shanghai/China.

The ever increasing market penetration of smart-phones, tablets, Netbooks, IoT and wearable devices, 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 who are both services consumers and big data producers are also raising challenging research issues that require us to rethink available network and services technology solutions to meet the emerging needs of a broader and ever growing user base and voluminous network traffic.
MoWNet’2017 aims at addressing recent research results on selected topics in Mobile & Wireless Networking and to present their methodologies, models, technologies, systems, tools, applications, work in progress and experiences.

Suggested topics include but are not restricted to:
* Cloud computing support for mobile services and applications
* Data center architectures and protocols for mobile data
* Green communications models, architectures, and networking solutions considering Edge Cloud and Mobile Cloud
* Self-networks, services and applications
* Content distribution networks for mobile applications
* Information Centric Networks
* Social networking solutions for pervasive and mobile environments
* Vehicular communications and vehicular ad-hoc networks
* Wireless-enabled Peer to Peer services and applications
* Internet of Things and M2M communications
* Participatory Sensing and Crowd Sourcing
* Underwater Sensor Networks
* Wireless communications and networks for Smart grids
* Context-aware middleware design, services and applications
* Security, trust, and privacy in wireless/mobile communications
* 5G Wireless Systems and Networks
* Cognitive Radio Networks (CRN) protocols, algorithms and implementation issues
* UAV networks, delay-tolerant wireless networks
* Software-defined wireless networks
* Network function virtualization in wireless networks
