The Sixth International Conference on Wireless and Mobile Communications

ICWMC 2010

September 20-25, 2010 - Valencia, Spain

Call for Papers

The Sixth International Conference on Wireless and Mobile Communications (ICWMC 2010) in Spain follows on the previous events on advanced wireless technologies, wireless networking, and wireless applications.

ICWMC 2010 addresses wireless related topics concerning integration of latest technological advances to realize mobile and ubiquitous service environments for advanced applications and services in wireless networks. Mobility and wireless, special services and lessons learnt from particular deployment complement the traditional wireless topics.

We welcome technical papers presenting research and practical results, position papers addressing the pros and cons of specific proposals, such as those being discussed in the standard fora or in industry consortia, survey papers addressing the key problems and solutions on any of topics, short papers on work in progress, workshops and panel proposals.

The topics suggested by the conference can be discussed in term of concepts, state of the art, standards, implementations, running experiments and applications. Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal in the following, but not limited to, topic areas.

Industrial presentations are not subject to these constraints. We expect short and long presentations that express industrial position and status.  

Tutorials on specific related topics and panels on challenging areas are encouraged. 

The topics suggested by the conference can be discussed in term of concepts, state of the art, research, standards, implementations, running experiments, applications, and industrial case studies. Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal in the following, but not limited to, topic areas.  All tracks are open to both research and industry contributions.
