IFIP WWIC 2018 : Wired/Wireless Internet Communications



会议名称:IFIP WWIC 2018 : Wired/Wireless Internet Communications











The 16th IFIP International Conference on Wired/Wireless Internet Communications (IFIP WWIC 2018) http://wwic2018.nws.cs.unibo.it June 18-20, 2018, Boston, MA, USA EDAS Submission Link: http://edas.info/N24465 Best Paper Award (BPA) Extended versions of selected papers will be considered for publication on the Computer Communications (Elsevier) journal -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ***** PAPER SUBMISSION DEADLINE: March 9, 2018 ***** -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Internet is being extended beyond its traditional boundaries 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 more efficient protocols, clean-slate or evolutionary architectures, merging and assembling of different network technologies, unified operations and management of the heterogeneous components and the support for new cloud services are only few examples of the wide range of technologies building-up this new global network. IFIP 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 further solicit submissions on bio-inspired, machine-learning based and data-driven approaches for network architecture and protocol design, and for wired/wireless system planning and optimization. The conference will constitute a forum for the presentation and discussion of the latest results in the field of wired/wireless networks and will aim at providing research directions and fostering collaborations among the participants. In this context, the program committee will accept a limited number of papers that meet the criteria of originality, presentation quality and topic relevance. IFIP WWIC is a single-track conference which has reached, over the last 15 years, a high quality level, which is reflected by the paper acceptance rate as well as the level of attendance. Following the conference tradition, there will be a best paper award. Selected presentations will be broadcasted live on the Internet. All submissions must describe original research, not published or currently under review for another workshop, conference, or journal. The proceedings will be published by Springer in the series Lecture Notes in Computer Science. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following: - Ad-hoc networks, UAV and Robot networks - Bio-inspired network architecture and protocol design - Big-data analytics for network management, planning and optimization - Blended network configurations - Community networks - Cross layer design and optimization - Data-driven network architecture design - Deep learning based optimization and parameter tuning in wireless networks - Delay/disruptive tolerant and opportunistic networking - Economic issues of challenging networks - Emergency communication and public-safety networks - End-to-end Quality of Service support - Game-theory applications in distributed networked systems - Handover techniques - Heterogeneous wireless access networks - Hybrid wired / wireless environments - Information centric networking - Interactions between wireless and optical networks - Integration of wired and wireless networks - Machine-learning approaches in cognitive radio networks - Machine-learning applications for network control and management - Machine-learning applications for network planning and optimization - Modeling of heterogeneity aspects - Mobile clouds and mobile edge computing (MEC) - Mobile service level agreements / specifications - Network design and network planning - Network mobility and mobility management - Network coding in mobile networks - Network Function Virtualization (NFV) - Network security in mobile environments - Pricing, charging, and accounting - QoS signalling in mobile environments - Resource management and admission control - Routing in mobile and opportunistic networks - Service composition and management - Simulation of next generation mobile networks - Software-defined wireless networks - Space internetworking - The Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine-to-Machine communication - 5G and beyond 5G networks - Traffic characterization and modeling - Traffic engineering - Transport protocols and congestion control - Unified management of integrated challenging networks - User-centric networking - Vehicular networks - Virtual and overlay networks - WiFi hotspot sharing - Wireless mesh networks - Wireless multimedia systems - Wireless network monitoring - Wireless sensor networks ------------------------------------------------------------------------ PAPER SUBMISSION AND PUBLICATION ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Prospective authors are invited to submit original papers with unpublished material and not currently submitted for consideration elsewhere. Papers should not exceed 12 LNCS formatted pages, including figures, tables, and references. At least one author of each accepted paper must register to the conference and present the paper. Papers accepted and presented at WWIC 2018 will be published as part of the Springer LNCS. They will also be submitted to appear in Scopus, ISI Web of Science, DBLP and other leading indexing services. All submitted papers must conform to the LNCS Formatting Guidelines. Authors are invited to use either the LNCS's Latex template or MS Word Template. If you have any questions about paper submissions or the program, please contact us at wwic2018-chairs@edas.info.
