The 10th IEEE International Conference on Wireless and Mobile Computing, Networking and Communications (WiMob 2014)

The 10th IEEE International Conference on Wireless and Mobile Computing, Networking and Communications (WiMob 2014)

October 8-10, 2014

Golden Bay Hotel, Larnaca, Cyprus

(Proceedings will be published by IEEE)

The IEEE WiMob conference is an international forum for the exchange of experience and knowledge among researchers and developers concerned with wireless and mobile technology. For nine years, the International IEEE WiMob conference has provided unique opportunities for researchers to interact, share new results, show live demonstrations, and discuss emerging directions in Wireless Communications, Mobile Networking and Ubiquitous Computing.

IEEE WiMob 2014 will take place at Larnaca, Cyprus, between October 8 to 10th, 2014. It will be held at the Golden Bay Beach Hotel, a luxurious 5 star hotel situated in the favored south eastern region of Cyprus at the heart of the Bay of Larnaca.

IEEE WiMob 2014 is soliciting high quality technical papers addressing research challenges in the areas of wireless communications, wireless networking, mobility, nomadicity, ubiquitous computing, services and applications. Papers should present original work validated via analysis, simulation or experimentation. Practical experiences and Testbed trials also are welcome.
