Call for Papers for Mobile and Wireless Network Track

Scope and Motivation

The Mobile and Wireless Network Track focuses on all topics related to all aspects of mobile and wireless networking for both ad-hoc and infrastructure modes. Mobile networks are communication networks with users moving with low speed (walking speed) to vehicular, train or plane speed, and hinge largely upon the so-called self-organizing capability operating in a distributed fashion in ad hoc networks.

This track aims at providing a forum for sharing ideas among researchers and practitioners working on state-of-the-art solutions to the challenges in wireless networking and mobility for wireless systems. We are seeking papers that describe original and unpublished contributions addressing various aspects in this field.

Main Topics of Interest

The Mobile and Wireless Network Track seeks original contributions in the following topical areas, plus others that are not explicitly listed but are closely related:

  • Mobile social network
  • Mobile service and QoS management
  • Cross-layer design and optimization
  • Fault-tolerance and traffic engineering
  • Testbeds and deployment
  • Mobility and validation models
  • Standardization activities of emerging wireless technologies
  • Mobility Architecture
  • Vehicular wireless networks
  • WLAN, WMAN, WWAN, cellular and emerging wireless networks
  • Wireless multimedia networks
  • Small cells and femto-cell networks
  • Wireless mesh networks
  • SDN and NFV for wireless networks
  • Wireless network virtualization
  • Cognitive radio networks and adaptive wireless networks
  • Management and dependability in wireless and mobile networks
  • Security in mobile networks
  • Device-to-Device communication under mobility
  • Delay-Tolerant networks
  • Horizontal and Vertical Handovers techniques
  • LTE and LTE-A architectures
