Call for Papers

IEEE WoWMoM 2008 is soliciting original and previously unpublished papers addressing research challenges and advances towards a world of wireless, mobile, and multimedia pervasive communications. The emergence of wireless network standards and their future evolutions offer exciting new opportunities for delivering rich multimedia content over wireless networks. Users will be able to seamlessly and ubiquitously accomplish their tasks such as accessing and retrieving information, communicating with other users or devices, exploiting advanced context-dependent services, and so on.

Papers that present work, validated by experimentation, simulation, or analysis, are solicited. Practical experiences and experimental efforts from both industry and academy, duly documenting the lessons learned from test-beds, field-trial, or real deployments, are also welcome. Manuscripts must be submitted electronically through the EDAS system.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- System prototypes and experiences
- QoS for voice and video in wireless/mobile networks
- Middleware support for QoS provision
- Networking services for pervasive systems
- Context-aware wireless multimedia application s
- Location mechanism and services
- Content m anagement and d istribution
- IP-based wireless/mobile multimedia services
- IP-based wireless/mobile networks
- Multicasting and broadcasting issues
- Energy-efficient protocols and power management
- Handoff and mobility management
- Seamless internetworking and self-organization
- Network management and control
- Wireless BAN, PAN, LAN, MAN , WAN, and RAN
- Ad-hoc and mesh networks
- Vehicular networks
- Wireless Sensor Networks
- Opportunistic Networking
- Security, privacy and dependability
- Pricing and accounting
- Modeling and p erformance evaluation

IEEE WoWMoM 2008 technical program will also include one-day workshops and industry sessions on hot topics on wireless, mobile and multimedia networks.

WoWMoM 2008 solicits proposals for live demonstrations and posters of novel technology, platforms and applications in mobile computing. Posters and demonstrations will be presented at a reception during the conference. The demo session presents an excellent opportunity for authors to present early protypes of new or ongoing research and interact directly with the conference attendees. Abstracts of accepted demos will be published in the conference proceedings. A BEST DEMO AWARD sponsored by Elsevier will also be presented during the conference. We strongly encourage submissions from both the industry and universities.

Submission Instructions:

All submissions must include an extended abstract and should be no longer than three pages in standard two column IEEE format, including all figures, tables and references. The authors should clearly describe what they intend to demonstrate. All submissions must include infrastructure requirements and the author list, including affiliations. Submissions must be made electronically (in PDF format) in a single email message to the Demo Chair at <mopy [at]> with the subject as "WoWMoM 2008 DEMO SUBMISSION".
