Description

WWIC 2012
10th International Conference on
Wired/Wireless Internet Communications

http://www.wwic2012.org

sponsored by IFIP

June 4-6, 2012
Island of Santorini, Greece

Internet is being extended beyond its traditional boundaries (i.e., areas with
network infrastructure) through gradually incorporating a wide-range of
challenging networks and autonomous devices. From traditional wireless
networks to opportunistic networks of mobile devices in urban
environments and deep-space communications, the new approaches require
an efficient merging with the traditional wired infrastructure. The need for
novel all-weather protocols, clean-slate or evolutionary architectures,
merging and assembling of different network technologies, unified
operation and management of the heterogeneous components and the
support for new multimedia services are only few examples of the wide
range of technologies building-up this new global network. WWIC addresses
research topics such as the design and evaluation of protocols, the dynamics
of the integration, the performance tradeoffs, the need for new performance
metrics and cross-layer interactions. This year, we particularly emphasize
on areas such as Delay- and Disruption-Tolerant Networks (DTNs) and
Opportunistic Networks.

The goal of the conference is to present high-quality results in the field of
global internetworking, and to provide a framework for research
collaboration through focused discussions that will designate future
research efforts and directions. In this context, the program committee will
accept only a limited number of papers that meet the criteria of originality,
presentation quality and topic relevance. WWIC is a single-track conference
which has reached, within 9 years, a high quality level, which is reflected
both in the level of participation as well as the acceptance ratio and the
amount and quality of submitted papers. Following the conference
tradition there will also be a best paper award.

Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings published by
Springer in the Lecture Notes of Computer Science (LNCS) Series.
Extended versions of selected papers will be considered for publication
in a special issue of an international journal.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- AAA in mobile environments
- Ad-hoc mobile networks
- Blended network configurations
- Cloud and data center computing
