The 8th IFIP Wireless and Mobile Networking Conference (WMNC 2015) is sponsored by IFIP TC6 and technically co-sponsored by IEEE Communications Society. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and IEEE Xplore, and submitted to other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. Authors of papers of special merit will be invited to send their extended versions to a Special Issue organized for this purpose in International Journals indexed in ISI Thomson and Scopus databases.

WMNC 2015 combines

  • PWC (Personal Wireless Communications conference),
  • MWCN (Mobile and Wireless Communication Networks conference), and 
  • WSAN (Wireless Sensors and Actor Networks conference) 

into one event.

WMNC 2015 provides a forum for discussion between researchers, practitioners and students interested in new developments in mobile and wireless networks, services, applications and mobile computing. WMNC 2015 includes three tracks focusing on (but not limited to) the following topics:

Track 1: Wireless and Mobile Communications and Networks

Wireless technologies design and evaluation - Handoff management - Location management - Resource management - Network and service management and control - Energy management and efficiency of protocols and devices - Cognitive radio networking - Device-to-device communications - Routing and scheduling in mobile and wireless networks - Transport layer issues in mobile and wireless networks - Network security solutions and protocols - Subscriber privacy - Authentication, Authorization, Accounting - Traffic and network modelling - Analysis, and simulation in wireless/mobile networks - Virtualized and cloud-based wireless.

Track 2: Wireless Sensor and Actor Networks, Ad hoc and Opportunistic Networks, Vehicular Networks

Machine to Machine communications (M2M) - Ad-Hoc networking – Delay tolerant networking - Cross-layer design and optimization - In-network processing and aggregation of information - Energy-efficient protocols and power management - Localization and tracking - Middleware for WSN and M2M - Self-organization and reconfiguration - Security for WSN and M2M - Physical architectures - Real-time communications in WSN - Vehicular networks - Robots as actor networks - Nano networks.

Track 3: Applications and Services over Wireless and Mobile Networks

Wireless multimedia networking – Mobile cloud computing and applications - Multicasting and broadcasting issues - Multimedia session signalling in wireless/mobile environments - Digital radio and TV broadcasting - Mobile computing - Protocols and platforms for convergence - QoS and QoE for voice and video in wireless/mobile networks - Mobile and wireless applications: health, environmental protection - Wireless Internet applications – ITS (Intelligent transportation systems) - Infotainment, pervasive systems, RFID - Location-based services - Mobile services - Content management and distribution - Context-aware wireless multimedia applications - Context-aware services – Information centric networking – Social networking.
