WWIC 2007 is the fifth event in a series of International Conferences on Wireless/Wired Internet Communications, sponsored by the COST 290.
WWIC 2007 will take place at the University of Coimbra, Portugal, between May 23 and May 25. The main objectives of WWIC 2006 are to bring together active and proficient members of the networking community, from both academia and industry, to discuss recent advances in this broad and fast-evolving field of internet communications, and to highlight key-issues, identify trends and refresh vision in the field of internet communications.
Next generation mobile networks will be based on Internet core networks and wireless access networks. The need for efficient merging of the wired and wireless infrastructure as well as the new multimedia services and applications of next generation networks call for novel network architectures, protocols and traffic-related mechanisms. WWIC addresses research topics such as the design and evaluation of protocols, the dynamics of the integration, the performance tradeoffs, the need for new performance metrics, and cross-layer interactions.
The goal of the conference is to present high-quality results in the field, and to provide a framework for research collaboration through focused discussions that will designate future research efforts and directions. In this context, the program committee will accept only a limited number of papers that meet the criteria of originality, presentation quality and topic relevance. The conference objectives will be pursued through highly technical sessions organized thematically and keynote talks offered by recognized experts.
The authors are encouraged to submit full papers describing original, previously unpublished, complete research, not currently under review by another conference or journal, addressing state-of-the-art research and development in all areas of computer networking and data communications.
All papers will be reviewed and accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings, published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS series. Papers must be submitted electronically. The maximum size of papers should be 5000 words including tables and figures. Please adhere to the formatting standard for a 12-page manuscript of Springer-Verlag LNCS. The cover page must contain an abstract of about 150 words, 3-5 keywords, name and affiliation of author(s) as well as the corresponding author's e-mail and postal address.
There will be a Best Paper Award for the best submitted paper and a number of Student Travel Grants sponsored by project COST 290.
