The 11th IEEE International Conference on Wireless and Mobile Computing, Networking and Communications (WiMob 2015)

October 19th-21st, 2015

Abu Dhabi, UAE

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 2015 will take place at Abu Dhabi, UAE, between October 19 and 21th, 2015.

IEEE WiMob 2015 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.
