Wireless and Mobile Networking Conference
The 6th Joint IFIP Wireless and Mobile Networking Conference (WMNC'2013) is sponsored by IFIP TC6 and technically co-sponsored by IEEE Communications Society. WMNC’2013 combines the 17th PWC (Personal Wireless Communications conference), the 14th MWCN (Mobile and Wireless Communication Networks conference), and the 6th WSAN (Wireless Sensors and Actor Networks conference) into one event. It will be held from 23rd to 25th of April 2013 at Atlantis, The Palm, Dubai. Atlantis is the majestic resort in Dubai situated on The Palm, a man-made island that has captured the world’s imagination with its magnificent scale and ingenuity in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
WMNC’2013 provides forum for discussion between researchers, practitioners and students interested in new developments in mobile and wireless networks, services, applications and mobile computing. WMNC’2013 includes three tacks focusing on (but not limited to) the following topics:
Track 1: Wireless and Mobile Communications and Networks
Wireless technologies design and evaluation - Handoff management - Location management - Connection management - Bandwidth management and capacity enhancement - Resource and information management - Network and service management and control - Energy management and efficiency of protocols and devices - QoS support in mobile and wireless networks - Admission control - Packet and resource scheduling - Routing and scheduling in mobile and wireless networks - Transport layer issues in mobile and wireless networks - Evolution of networks (evolution of 3G/4G Systems, future generation systems and networks) - Network security solutions and protocols - Subscriber privacy - Authentication, Authorization, Accounting - Traffic and network modeling in wireless/mobile networks - Analysis and simulation of wireless and mobile networks - Evaluation of testbeds.
Track 2: Wireless Sensor and Actor Networks, Ad hoc Networks
Ad-Hoc networking - Analysis, simulation and measurement - Coordination in actor networks - Communication protocols and algorithms - Cross-layer design and optimization - Energy-efficient protocols and power management - Localization and tracking - Middleware for WSN – Self-organization and reconfiguration - Security for WSN - Physical architectures - Real-time communications in WSN - Vehicular networks - Robots as actor nodes.
Track 3: Applications and Services over Wireless and Mobile Networks
