* Conference background and goals
The IADIS Wireless Applications and Computing 2009 conference addresses several themes related to theory and practice within wireless networks, computing and application related areas.

Enormous developments in wireless technologies made in recent years enabled both researchers and industry to create new, innovative wireless and mobile application and services, protocols, middleware platforms and application frameworks. Corresponding
research is related to all communication layers, but also includes application-related topics, theoretical results and non-technical issues. Main topics have been identified (see below).
However, innovative contributions that don’t fit into these areas will also be considered since they might be of benefit to conference attendees.

* Format of the Conference
The conference will comprise of invited talks and oral presentations. The proceedings of the conference will be published in the form of a book and CD-ROM with ISBN, and will be available also in the IADIS Digital Library (accessible on-line).
