Call for Papers:

The First International Workshop on Next Generation of Wireless and Mobile
Networks (NGWMN-08)
(http://www.cs.uc.edu/~qzeng/NGWMN2008/NGWMN2008.htm)

To be held in conjunction with ICPP-08
(http://www.cse.ohio-state.edu/~icpp2008/)
September 8-12, 2008, Portland, Oregon, USA

----------------------------------------------------------
SCOPE
=====
The next generation of wireless and mobile networks is expected to allow a
single mobile user to access heterogeneous wireless and mobile networks.
Since wireless cellular networks such as 3G systems (e.g., WCDMA, UMTA,
cdma200, etc) and WLANs (e.g., IEEE 802.11a/b/e/g/n, WiMax, etc) are two
typical existing networks the integration and interoperability issues
become
new  challenges. The internetworking of different types of wireless and
mobile networks aims to provide seamless services for the mobile users
among
different type of networks. Due to the heterogeneity of different radio
access techniques, different types of traffic and applications, Quality of
Service (QoS) guarantee also becomes a critical issue for an integrated
wireless and mobile network. Therefore, this workshop will provide a
timely
technical forum for the dissemination of new results in this exciting
research area and is devoted to the architectures, protocols, resource
management, mobility management, and scheduling in integrated wireless and
mobile networks.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Architecture of integrated heterogamous networks
- Handoff and mobility management
- Integration of heterogeneous networks
- Resource management
- Multi-interface access protocols
- QoS provisioning
- Cross-layer design and optimization
- Load balancing and activity scheduling
- MAC protocols
- Network management and planning
- Routing protocols
- Multimedia communications
- Multicasting and broadcasting protocols
- Performance analysis and optimization
- Congestion control algorithms and scheduling
- Cooperation and trust management
- Topology control and management
- Network topology
- Security issue of internetworking
- Opportunistic networks

SUBMISSION:
===========
Authors are invited to submit their research papers following the IEEE
Computer Society Proceedings Manuscripts style: two columns,
single-spaced,
including figures and references, using 10 fonts, and number each page.
The
papers should be 6 pages long. They will be carefully evaluated based on
originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of exposition.
The papers should be submitted electronically via ICPP-08 website. If
there
is any problem during submission please contact any of the Workshop
Co-chairs. Accepted papers will be given guidelines in preparing and
submitting the final manuscript(s) together with the notification of
acceptance.
