Industry Track Sessions CFP

IEEE WoWMoM 2010 is soliciting original and previously unpublished research papers from industry researchers and professionals for a one-day Industry Session. Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Wireless Multimedia
  • System Prototypes, Measurements and Real Deployment Experiences
  • Design of New Protocols and Performance Evaluation
  • Ad hoc, Sensor and Wireless Mesh Networks
  • Wireless BAN, PAN, LAN, and MAN
  • Middleware and Wireless Applications
  • Quality of Service and Quality of Experience Issues
  • Third and fourth generation systems
  • IP-based mobile networks and wireless multimedia services
  • Wireless Security, Dependability, Reliability and Survivability
  • Energy-efficient protocols and power management
  • Context-aware wireless multimedia applications
  • Location mechanism and services
  • Multicasting and broadcasting issues
  • Handoff and mobility management
  • Seamless internetworking
  • Networking services for pervasive systems
  • Network management and troubleshooting
  • Vehicular wireless networks
  • Content Management and Distribution

The Industry Session track is intended to specially highlight system experiences and proofs-of-concept in the areas above. Like regular papers, the Industry Session papers will undergo a review process by an International TPC and will appear in the conference proceedings.

However, the selection criteria for Industry Session papers are slightly different. In particular, papers should describe applications, prototypes or experiences of clear industry relevance. Papers with narrow algorithmic focus or only high-level design details are discouraged. A key goal of this session is to present systems-oriented research that exposes the academic and research communities to real-life issues and problems being faced in industry. Accordingly, papers will be evaluated, less on the novelty of specific algorithmic content, but by the originality and general applicability of insights that can be inferred from the authors’ implementation experience.

Submission Instructions

Papers must be formatted according to the guidelines given in the author instructions page and submitted through EDAS.
