Guest Editors:

Salah M. Saleh AL-MAJEED, University of Essex, United Kingdom
Mahi Lohi, University of Westminster, UK

Theme and Scope
Wireless & Mobile technologies represent a rapidly emerging area of development and importance for providing ubiquitous access to the network for all end users. The Wireless & Mobile computing domain emerges from the integration among personal computing, networks, communication technologies, cellular technology and the Internet Technology. Many modern applications are emerging in the area of mobile ad hoc networks and sensor networks. This special issue is intended to cover contributions in both the design and analysis in the context of mobile, wireless, ad-hoc, and sensor networks. The special issue will additionally select high quality papers from The Third International Conference on Wireless & Mobile Networks (WiMo-2011), to be held in Ankara, Turkey, June 2011.
