Special Issue on Lightweight Mobile and Wireless Systems: Technologies, Architectures and Services-Journal of Computer Systems, Networks, and Communications

Journal of Computer Systems, Networks, and Communications

Special Issue on Lightweight Mobile and Wireless Systems: Technologies, Architectures and Services

Call for Papers

Wireless communications are becoming increasingly pervasive, as the number and diffusion of portable wireless-equipped devices is exponentially increasing (ranging from cellular phones to handheld game consoles, from personal digital assistant and personal navigation devices to still and video cameras). This results into an unprecedented request for lightweight, wireless communication devices with high usability and performance able to support added-value services in a highly mobile environment – following the user everywhere he goes (at work, at home, while traveling, in a classroom, etc.). This scenario clearly demands significant upgrades to the existing communication paradigm in terms of infrastructure, devices and services to support the ANYTIME, ANYWHERE, ANY DEVICE philosophy.

This Special Issue aims to publish high quality research papers relating to Mobile Lightweight Wireless Systems. Researchers working in these areas worldwide are invited to contribute original and unpublished papers for consideration in this Special Issue. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

. Wireless communication systems (IEEE 802.11x, WiMAX, IEEE 802.15, Personal Area Networks, Bluetooth, wireless USB, HiperLAN2)

. Cellular Networks (2.5G, 3G, 3G LTE, LTE-A)

. Ultra Wide Band . Next Generation Networks . Next generation lightweight devices (smart phones, PDAs) . Available and emerging solutions for lightweight systems

. Internetworking and interoperability . Protocol stack design (layering, cross-layering)

. Performance evaluation and optimization

. Service-Oriented architectures . Cognitive radios and networks

. Seamless roaming

. Voice and Voice over IP . Location services

. Emerging and next generation services

. Service provisioning . Value-Added services

. Users’ needs and requirements
