The 8th IEEE International Conference on Wireless and Mobile Computing, Networking and Communications(WiMob 2012)

October 8-10, 2012

Barcelona, Spain

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 seven 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 2012 will be held at Casa Convalescència, Barcelona, Spain. The conference will be hosted by Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC). Barcelona is one of the most touristic towns in Europe and capital of the Modernism. In fact, Casa Convalescència building is one of the great works of Catalan Modernism, and was declared Historical Artistic Monument in 1978 and World Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1997.

IEEE WiMob 2012 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. IEEE WiMob 2012 will host three parallel symposiums, including but not limited to the following topics:

1. Wireless Communications
Broadband Wireless Communication Systems Channel Measurement and Characterization
