Call for Papers WWIC 2005

May 11-13 2005, Xanthi, Greece

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 is 
addressing 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. Proceedings will 
be published by LNCS Springer. Selected best papers will appear in a 
journal special issue. In addition, the best paper as well as the runner 
up will be awarded at the conference, based on reviewer comments and 
suggestions of the Technical Program Committee members.

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
- Resource management and admission control
- QoS signaling
- QoS routing
- Wireless Multi-Hop Networks
- Economical issues of wireless networks
- Pricing, charging and accounting in wireless networks
