IEEE WOWMOM 2006, The 7th IEEE International Symposium on a World of Wireless, Mobile and Multimedia Networks June 26-29, 2006, Niagara-Falls/Buffalo, New York, USA (Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society, IEEE TCCC and Univ. of Texas at Arlington).

The emergence of broadband wireless access standards, such as 3G/UMTS, 802.16, 802.11a/g and UWB, offers exciting new possibilities for delivering rich multimedia content over wireless networks. The delivery and transport of rich multimedia in such wireless environments, including sensor and mesh networks, requires innovation and advances in better MAC and routing protocols, session establishment and signaling architectures, QoS provisioning and adaptive transmission techniques, autonomic network management capabilities and middleware frameworks, among others.

The IEEE WoWMoM 2006 technical program committee is soliciting papers addressing the research challenges and advances towards a world of wireless, mobile, and multimedia pervasive communications. Papers must present original and previously unpublished work, validated by experimentation, simulation, or analysis. Practical experiences and experimental efforts, including submissions from industry, are also welcome. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • System prototypes and experiences
  • QoS for voice and video in wireless networks
  • Middleware support for QoS provision
  • Differentiated services in wireless multimedia
  • IP-based wireless multimedia services
  • Multimedia session signaling in wireless environments
  • Networking services for pervasive systems
  • Multicasting and broadcasting issues
  • Handoff and mobility management
  • Seamless internetworking
  • Energy-efficient protocols and power management
  • Network management and troubleshooting
  • IP-based mobile networks
  • Context-aware wireless multimedia applications
  • Location mechanism and services
  • Wireless BAN, PAN, LAN, and MAN
  • Ad hoc and sensor networks
  • Wireless mesh networks
  • Vehicular wireless networks
  • Third and fourth generation systems
  • Wireless security and dependability
  • Content management and distribution
  • Pricing and billing
  • Modeling and Performance evaluation

Two types of papers will be considered. "Full Papers" must present original, previously unpublished, complete work, validated by experimentation, simulation, or analysis. "Position Papers" must be visionary, innovative and forward-looking, and offer new perspectives on future research directions. Only a limited number of slots will be available for position papers that will be reviewed primarily for relevance and originality.

Submitted manuscripts should adhere to the IEEE double-column standard format, except the font size, which must be Times Roman 11pt (or greater). Authors should use only standard fonts, i.e., Times Roman, Courier, Symbol, and Helvetica, or equivalent. For full papers, the maximum length of the manuscript is 12 pages. For "position" papers, the maximum length of the manuscript is 6 pages. This limit includes figures, appendix, bibliography, etc. Papers that will be significantly exceed this limit will be automatically rejected.

* Papers must be registered (with a title, abstract and author list) at EDAS by "November 19, 2005 11:59 PM PST".Only registered papers may be submitted till the extended deadline of November 26, 2005.
