IEEE WoWMoM 2010

The Eleventh International Symposium on a World of Wireless, Mobile and Multimedia Networks (WoWMoM 2010), 14-17 June, 2010, Montreal Canada

*Call for Extended Abstracts*

*PhD Forum*

The second WoWMoM PhD Forum will be hosted at the Eleventh
International Symposium on a World of Wireless, Mobile and Multimedia Networks (WoWMoM 2010). Doctoral students working in areas related to wireless, mobile and multimedia networking are solicited to submit an extended abstract comprising a summary of their research findings, work in progress and planned research. The forum will be a platform for PhD students to interact both with their peers as well as experienced researchers from industry. The forum will be organized as a poster session and will include a ‘1-minute madness’ introduction by each student.

Current Ph.D. students are encouraged to submit extended abstracts. The Ph.D. student should be the sole author, although contributions of the advisor and others may be acknowledged in the extended abstract. Submissions will be reviewed to ensure quality and relevance. Authors of accepted submissions are expected to attend WoWMoM 2010 and present their poster at the PhD Forum. The best presentation at the Forum will receive a sponsored award, and there is likely to be travel assistance for some students. Accepted extended abstracts will appear in conference proceedings.

*Extended Abstract Submission:* Ph.D. students are invited to submit two-page extended abstracts that describe current research and potential contributions to theory and innovation in wireless, mobile and multimedia networking. Submissions are due by April 1st, 2010. Extended abstracts should include the author’s name, affiliation, and email address. Submissions must be PDF files and must be written in English. Submissions should adhere to the ACM format and be no more than two pages in length (all inclusive).**

Ph.D. students should submit their extended abstract to

10th IEEE International Workshop on Wireless Local Networks 2010

held in conjunction with

The 35th IEEE Conference on Local Computer Networks (LCN’10) October 11-14, 2010, Denver, Colorado, USA

|| Scope ||
In its 10th year, the International Workshop on Wireless Local Networks (WLN) builds on a proven record for being a strong venue on the subject matter. Held under the umbrella of the IEEE Conference on Local Computer Networks, the workshops continues to solicit state-of-the-art research describing both theoretical and practical research endeavors. We also encourage visionary and experimental descriptions, in addition to work-in-progress and demos.

|| Topics ||
The following is a non-exclusive list of topics of interest: * Design and deployment guidelines.
* Implementation and testbed issues.
* Network management architectures.
* Protocol design, including cross-layer and opportunistic approaches. * Wireless multihop networks, including mesh, ad hoc and sensor networks. * Wireless relay, including fixed and mobile elements.
* Integration and coexistence issues.
* Mobility management in both homogeneous and heterogeneous settings. * Resource management functionalities (CAC, reservation, scheduling, etc.) * Cognitive radios and dynamic spectrum networks.
* Performance evaluation, including analytical, simulation and testbed approaches.

|| Important Dates ||
Submission deadline May 5th, 2010
