Call for Papers WWIC 2006

May 10-12 2006, Bern, Switzerland

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. Selected best papers will appear in a journal special issue. The best conference paper as well will be awarded at the conference, based on reviewer comments and suggestions of the Technical Program Committee members.

The paper should not exceed 12 pages and the conference proceedings will be published by Springer's Lecture Notes of Computer Science (LNCS).

A special issue with selected papers will be published by Elsevier Computer Communications.

Papers should address one of the following topics.
  • Network design and network planning
  • Traffic engineering
  • Traffic characterisation and modeling
  • Mobile service level agreements / specification
  • Simulation technologies for next generation mobile networks
  • Transport protocols and congestion control
  • Cross layer interactions
  • Mobility management
  • End-to-end Quality of Service support
  • Heterogeneous wireless access networks
  • Integration and interworking of wired and wireless networks
  • Performance evaluation of mobile and wireless networks and systems
  • Handover techniques
  • Wireless multimedia systems
  • Service creation and management environments for mobile/wireless systems
  • Resource management and admission control
  • QoS signaling
  • QoS routing
  • Wireless Multi-Hop Networks
