Please note, the EDAS submission site will be opened on February 2.

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 eleven 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 Communication, – Wireless Networking, Mobility and Nomadicity, – Ubiquitous Computing, Services and Applications, – Green and sustainable communications and network computing and – Security on Wireless and mobile Networks.

IEEE WiMob 2017 will take place at Hotel Savoy, Rome, Italy, between October 9 and 11th, 2017.

IEEE WiMob 2017 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.
