Call for Papers
Scope and overview
IEEE WoWMoM 2018 is soliciting original and previously unpublished papers addressing research challenges and advances in the areas of wireless, mobile, and multimedia networking as well as ubiquitous and pervasive systems. The evolution of wireless networking technologies and their key role in future Internet scenarios offer an increasing wealth of opportunities for distributing multimedia contents over wireless networks, enabling dissemination of professional contents to mobile users as well as sharing user-generated contents among them. Users will be able to retrieve, publish, and manage information, communicate with other users or devices, access and author services, and create and exploit context-awareness. Papers that present original work, validated by experimentation, simulation, or analysis, are solicited. Practical experiences and experimental efforts from both industry and academia, duly documenting the lessons learned from testbeds, field-trials, or real deployments, are also welcome.
Papers are invited which address new and previously unpublished results in the areas:
PAPER SUBMISSION AND PUBLICATION
All submissions must describe original research, not published or currently under review for another workshop, conference, or journal.
Papers must be submitted electronically through EDAS, using the link: https://edas.info/newPaper.php?c=23975
Authors can submit papers falling into two distinct paper categories (please select the appropriate one when submitting):
Regular papers submissions may be up to 9 pages in length (including figures and references), formatted in two-column IEEE conference style with font size 10 points or greater. For the camera ready, authors can buy one additional page up to 10 pages.
Work in Progress papersWork-in-progress papers provide a peer-reviewed forum for late-breaking or preliminary research results, giving an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to present and demonstrate their recent research, and to obtain feedback from their peers in an informal setting. Work-in-progress papers submissions may be up to 3 pages in length (including figures and references), with the option of purchasing one extra page upon acceptance (up to 4 pages).
For accepted papers, attendance and presentation by one of the authors is mandatory. Submission implies the willingness of at least one author to attend the conference and present the paper. Accepted papers will be included in the proceedings of IEEE WoWMoM 2018 and submitted for publication to IEEE Xplore. All conference proceedings must meet IEEEÆs quality standards, and IEEE reserves the right not to publish any proceedings that do not meet these standards. WoWMoM organizers reserve the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference.
Selected Papers will be considered for a special issue of the Elsevier journal of Pervasive and Mobile Computing (PMC).
WORKSHOPS AND AFFILIATED EVENTS
WoWMoM 2018 will offer a four-day technical program including keynote speeches, hot-topic panel sessions, tutorials, demonstrations, and PhD forum. Several workshops will be held in conjunction with the symposium. Workshop papers will be included and indexed in the IEEE Digital Library (IEEE Xplore), showing their affiliation with IEEE WoWMoM. The conference also provides a high quality social events program, including a welcome reception and a gala dinner.
Technical demonstrations in the areas of wireless, mobile, and multimedia networking as well as ubiquitous and pervasive systems are solicited. Instructions for submitting a demo proposal will be posted in due time on the conference website.
