Call For Papers

The 16th IFIP International Conference on Wired/Wireless Internet Communications (IFIP WWIC 2018)

June 18-20, 2018, Boston, MA, USA

EDAS Submission Link:

Best Paper Award (BPA)

Extended versions of selected papers will be considered for publication on the
Computer Communications (Elsevier) journal


The Internet is being extended beyond its traditional boundaries through gradually incorporating a wide-range of challenging networks and autonomous devices. From traditional wireless networks to opportunistic networks of mobile devices in urban environments and deep-space communications, the new approaches require an efficient merging with the traditional wired infrastructure. The need for more efficient protocols, clean-slate or evolutionary architectures, merging and assembling of different network technologies, unified operations and management of the heterogeneous components and the support for new cloud services are only few examples of the wide range of technologies building-up this new global network. IFIP WWIC addresses research topics such as the design and evaluation of protocols, the dynamics of the integration, the performance tradeoffs, the need for new performance metrics, and cross-layer interactions. This year, we further solicit submissions on bio-inspired, machine-learning based and data-driven approaches for network architecture and protocol design, and for wired/wireless system planning and optimization.

The conference will constitute a forum for the presentation and discussion of the latest results in the field of wired/wireless networks and will aim at providing research directions and fostering collaborations among the participants. In this context, the program committee will accept a limited number of papers that meet the criteria of originality, presentation quality and topic relevance. IFIP WWIC is a single-track conference which has reached, over the last 15 years, a high quality level, which is reflected by the paper acceptance rate as well as the level of attendance. Following the conference tradition, there will be a best paper award. Selected presentations will be broadcasted live on the Internet.

All submissions must describe original research, not published or currently under review for another workshop, conference, or journal. The proceedings will be published by Springer in the series Lecture Notes in Computer Science.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

- Ad-hoc networks, UAV and Robot networks
- Bio-inspired network architecture and protocol design
