research Workshop on Mobile Computing and Networking Technologies (WMCNT 2010)
Call for Papers
The Second research International Workshop on Mobile Computing and Networking Technologies (WMCNT2010) will take place in conjunction with the research International Congress on Ultra Modern Telecommunications and Control Systems (ICUMT 2010) to be held in Moscow, Russia, in October 2010. The Workshop will be a full day event. Continuing the great success of the previous event, WMCNT 2010 Workshop is anticipated to attract a large number of high-quality submissions and stimulate the cutting-edge research discussions among academic pioneering researchers/scientists and industrial engineers/leaders from all around the world.
Mobile computing and networking have inarguably emerged among the most vibrant areas in the field of telecommunications today. Customers’ requirement for immediate response to their prerequisites, targeting on access to information anywhere in the world at anytime, has increased the demand for productivity and effectiveness of mobile computing and networking. Moreover, the convergence of information communications technology and computing is creating new demands and opportunities for ubiquitous computing via wireless and mobile equipment without technological restrictions. Considering also the diversification of access technologies and their applications that prevail in the present telecommunication environment, amalgamated with the increased user mobility makes QoS provision a challenging issue.
Future mobile communication networks offer a variety of high quality applications. Furthermore, several challenges are imposed by the demanding wireless networking environment, in terms of network architecture, channel estimation, propagation and especially radio resource management. The understanding of these issues becomes even more demanding due to non-uniform spectrum allocation, various radio resource management policies, economic concerns, the scarcity of radio resources, the inherent transmission impairments of wireless links and user mobility.
The aim of the Second research International Workshop on Mobile Computing and Networking Technologies (WMCNT 2010) is to provide an international venue for the discussion of architecture, design, implementation, analysis, measurement, performance and simulation in wireless, mobile and ubiquitous computing environments. WMCNT 2010 will serve as an open forum, where novel ideas will be exchanged via bringing together researchers, developers and engineers in both academia and industry.

Prospective authors are encouraged to submit full papers describing original, previously unpublished, complete research, not currently under review by another conference or journal, addressing state-of-the-art research and development in all areas of computer networking and data communications. All papers will be reviewed by experts in the field and accepted papers will be presented in oral sessions and published in the conference proceedings, included in research Xplore (approved). The submission process is carried through the EDAS conference management system (http://edas.info/). The manuscripts must follow the research two-column format with single-spaced, 10-point font in the text. The maximum paper length is of five (5) pages. A sixth page may be accepted after an additional fee. Submission of a regular paper implies that at least one of the authors will have a full registration to the Conference and present the paper upon the acceptance of the submission. Authors of selected outstanding papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their work for possible inclusion into a special journal issue.
