Call For Papers - 2nd Annual International Wireless Internet Conference (WICON)

(PDF version | DOC version)

Built on this year's successful conference inaugural, the Wireless Internet Conference (WICON) will continue to provide a premier international forum to discuss novel research results related to the emerging Wireless Internet. The conference addresses technologies aimed at providing seamless connectivity, richer services, and better quality for wireless data users while supporting heterogeneity in communication technologies, network architectures, and applications.

The focus of the conference is on architectural, networking, security, performance and management aspects of cellular, WiFi, WiMax and other Wireless Internet technologies. Preference will be given to papers describing implementations, deployment, measurements, empirical performance evaluation and experiments. The conference will also put a special emphasis on integration and convergence issues of various wireless technologies and architectures, as well as cross-layer aspects, such as QoS, billing, and security. Given the existence of other conferences on mobile ad hoc networks, sensor networks, and the like, papers that are oriented to ad hoc and sensor networks are discouraged unless they directly focus on the conference theme of the Wireless Internet.

WICON is soliciting both research track and industry track papers. All papers should describe original work that has been neither previously published nor is under review by another conference or journal. Industry track papers must have at least one author from industry, and should describe interesting technical aspects of industrial applications, prototypes, experiences, and standards; performance and design details are encouraged, whereas papers focused on marketing or product information will not be accepted. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:



Paper Submission

The page limit is 10 pages in IEEE double column format. For easy identification, all industry track papers should have as their title "Industry Track: rest of title." Papers will be submitted by electronic submission through COCUS system: http://cocus.create-net.it.

WICON 2006 also has a separate "Industry-track" papers submission and authors in research/industry are strongly encouraged to submit their research work to this track.
