Call For Papers -- "Industrial Track"

Important dates:
* Paper submission deadline: February 11, 2008
* Acceptance notification: March 17, 2008
* Camera-ready deadline: April 04, 2008

As part of an expanded involvement of industry researchers and professionals, IEEE WoWMoM 2008 is soliciting original and previously unpublished research papers for a one-day Industry Session. Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Mobility and handover aspects
* Security for mobile multimedia
* (evolved) MBMS and security
* Standards enhacements and upcoming technologies (3GPP/2, IEEE, IETF)
* Middleware support for mobile multimedia
* Mobile content distribution and authorization
* Presence-awareness and multimedia signaling in provider networks
* Service creation and provisioning for mobile applications
* Broadcast/Multicast based applications and architectures
* Power control and energy-efficient systems for pervasive communication
* RFID/sensor applications in enterprise and provider networks
* Innovative methods for charging/billing
* Fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) systems
* Network simulation and validation tools

The Industry Session track is intended to specially highlight system experiences and proofs-of-concept in the areas of wireless communication and multimedia applications. Like regular papers, the "industry session" papers will undergo a review process by an international TPC and will appear in the conference proceedings. However, the selection criteria for "industry session" papers are slightly different. In particular, papers should describe applications, prototypes or experiences of clear industry relevance. Papers with narrow algorithmic focus or only high-level design details are discouraged. A key goal of these sessions is to present systems-oriented research that exposes the academic and research communities to "real-life" issues and problems being faced in industry. Accordingly, papers will be evaluated, less on the novelty of specific algorithmic content, but by the originality and general applicability of insights that can be inferred from the authors' implementation experience.

Papers must be submitted in PDF format via the Easy Chair Website: . Papers should be double-column, 10pt IEEE format and no longer than 8 pages.
