Appologies if you received multiple copies of this WNM-2013 CFP. --------------------------------------------------------------- CALL FOR PAPERS Due to multiple requests, paper submission deadline is extended to 1 March 2013 The 4th International Workshop on Wireless Networks and Multimedia (WNM-2013), Melbourne, Australia, 16-18 July, 2013 http://wnm2013.csp.escience.cn/ To be held in conjunction with The 11th IEEE ISPA-2013 The accepted papers from this workshop will be included into the IEEE conference proceedings published by IEEE Computer Society, and will be indexed by EI Distinguished selected high-quality papers from the workshop, after further significant extensions, will be recommended for submission and possible publication in the Special Issue of an SCI-indexed international journal INTRODUCTION The wireless communication technologies have evolved quickly over the past years. As the explosive growth in broadband wireless networks, multimedia applications will dominate the future wireless communication society, resulting in non-trivial problems in terms of available capacity, reliability, quality-of-service, delay, and throughput. To successfully support wireless multimedia applications, it is necessary to improve the state-of-the-art techniques (such as radio resource management, mobility, handoff, and location management, etc.) in the multimedia transmission over wireless networks in order to provide quality-of-service guarantees between the end-users and achieve a high quality-of-experience for end-users. This workshop will address the important problems and challenges caused by the transmission of multimedia applications over wireless networks. The workshop aims to bring together computer scientists and engineers in different disciplines to share and exchange their experience and ideas and discuss state-of-the-art and in-progress research on all aspects of wireless networks and multimedia applications. The topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to: 1. Ultra-Wideband Networks 2. Wireless Ad Hoc and Mesh Networks 3. Wireless Personal Area Networks 4. Wireless Local Area Networks 5. Wireless Sensor Networks 6. Wireless Metropolitan Area Networks 7. Cellular Networks 8. WiMAX 9. Optical Wireless Access Networks 10. Mobile Computing and Wireless Communications 11. Future Wireless Networks and Protocols 12. Multimedia Communications and Services 13. Congestion and Admission Control 14. Wireless MAC Protocols: Design and Analysis 15. Quality of Service Provisioning 16. Wireless Network Trust, Privacy and Security 17. Software Defined Radio & Software Defined Networking 18. Cross-Layer Design and Adaptation 19. Radio Resource Management 20. Mobility, Handoff and Location Management 21. Performance Modeling and Evaluation 22. Wireless and Mobile Network Architecture IMPORTANT DATES Submission Deadline: 1 March, 2013 Authors Notification: 1 April, 2013 Final Manuscript Due: 1 May, 2013 Conference Date: 16-18 July, 2013 PAPER SUBMISSION GUIDELINE Prospective authors are invited to submit manuscripts reporting original unpublished research and recent developments in the topics related to the workshop.
