The 22nd IEEE International Symposium on a World of Wireless, Mobile and Multimedia Networks (WoWMoM 2021)

June 7-11, 2021
Pisa, Italy


IEEE WoWMoM 2021 is soliciting original and previously unpublished papers addressing research challenges and advances in the areas of wireless, mobile, and multimedia networking as well as ubiquitous and pervasive systems and applications. Wireless networking technologies are continuously evolving and have become a critical part of modern life, be it for communication services, media distribution or sensing and actuation services within the Internet of things context. To provide users with high quality of experience in multimedia communication and distribution, especially under moderate to high utilization, appropriate resource management and architectural networking paradigms are necessary. Edge computing and data-driven artificial intelligence (AI) techniques are becoming essential tools to cope with the increasing diversity of connected devices, and the plethora of new data-intensive and latency-sensitive applications requested by end-users. At the same time, Internet of Things environments, wearable computing and sensors, support a diverse range of application domains and services, providing rich sets of measurements for characterizing, detecting, and understanding complex behaviors and systems and enabling feedback mechanisms that allow them to control such systems. IEEE WoWMoM 2021 takes a broad view and seeks papers describing innovative research contributions to the field of mobile and wireless networking and applications. We solicit papers that present original work, validated by experimentation, simulation, or analysis. We also welcome practical experiences and experimental efforts from both industry and academia, duly documenting the lessons learned from testbeds, field trials, or real deployments.

Paper registrationDecember 7, 2020
Paper submissionDecember 14, 2020
Acceptance notificationMarch 19, 2021
Camera-ready versionApril 19, 2021
Conference datesJune 7-11, 2021


Authors are invited to submit papers describing original, previously unpublished work, not currently under review by another conference, workshop, or a journal.

Only PDF files will be accepted for the review process and all submissions must be done electronically through EDAS (register your paper now!).

Authors can submit regular or work-in-progress papers (appropriate category to be selected upon submission).


Regular papers submissions may be up to 10 pages in length (including figures and references), formatted in two-column IEEE conference style with font size 10 points or greater.


Work-in-progress papers provide a peer-reviewed forum for late-breaking or preliminary research results, giving an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to present and demonstrate their recent research, and to obtain feedback from their peers in a poster session. Work-in-progress papers submissions may be up to 4 pages in length (including figures and references) and must have a prefix “WIP:” in the title of the paper.


An author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the full (member or non-member) rate and the paper must be presented by an author of that paper at the conference, unless a written request before the conference for a substitute presenter with compelling reasons is sent to the TPC Co-Chairs and permission is granted. Accepted papers will be included in the proceedings of IEEE WoWMoM 2021 and available through IEEE Xplore.

All conference proceedings must meet IEEE’s quality standards, and IEEE reserves the right not to publish any proceedings that do not meet these standards. Furthermore, IEEE reserves the right to remove papers from IEEE Xplore that are not presented at the conference. for unjustified reasons.
