Call for papers for the industry-track

IEEE WoWMoM 2011 is soliciting original and previously unpublished research papers from industry researchers and professionals for a one-day Industry Session. Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Wireless BAN, PAN, LAN and MAN
  • 3G and 4G Wireless Systems
  • Ad hoc, Sensor and Wireless Mesh Networks
  • Vehicle-to-X Communications (V2V, V2I, V2B)
  • Mobile P2P Networks
  • IP-based Mobile Networks
  • System Prototypes, Measurements and Real Deployment Experiences
  • Design of New Protocols and Performance Evaluation
  • Energy-Efficient Protocols and Power Management
  • Wireless Multimedia
  • Middleware and Wireless Applications
  • Quality of Service and Quality of Experience Issues
  • Wireless Security, Dependability, Reliability and Survivability
  • Context-Aware Wireless Multimedia Applications
  • Location Mechanism and Services
  • Multicasting and Broadcasting Issues
  • Handoff and Mobility Management
  • Seamless Internetworking
  • Networking Services for Pervasive Systems
  • Network Management and Troubleshooting
  • Content Management and Distribution

The Industry Session track is intended to specially highlight system experiences and proofs-of-concept in the areas above. Like regular papers, the Industry Session papers will undergo a review process by an International TPC and will appear in the conference proceedings.

However, the selection criteria for Industry Session papers are slightly different. In particular, papers should describe applications, prototypes or experiences of clear industry relevance. Papers with narrow algorithmic focus or only high-level design details are discouraged. A key goal of this session is to present systems-oriented research that exposes the academic and research communities to real-life issues and problems being faced in industry. Accordingly, papers will be evaluated, less on the novelty of specific algorithmic content, but by the originality and general applicability of insights that can be inferred from the authors' implementation experience.

Paper Submission

Submission is managed electronically through EDAS.

Submission implies the willingness of at least one author to attend the conference and present the paper. Accepted papers will be included in the proceedings of IEEE WoWMoM 2011 and published in the IEEE Digital Library. WoWMoM organizers reserve the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference.

Papers should contain original material and not be previously published, or currently submitted for consideration elsewhere. Accepted papers will be published by the IEEE in the combined WoWMoM 2011 proceedings, hence manuscripts must be formatted in accordance with the IEEE Computer Society author guidelines. The IEEE LaTeX and Microsoft Word templates, as well as related information, can be found at the IEEE Computer Society website.

Specifically, please note the following format requirements:

  • Your submission must be in PDF format. Whatever text processor or formatter you use to write your paper (LaTeX, Microsoft Word, FrameMaker, etc.), please convert the output to PDF before submission.
  • Manuscripts must be limited to 9 pages, single spacing, double column, and must STRICTLY adhere to the template format.
  • We must be able to print your paper once it is submitted. Therefore, all fonts used in the paper MUST be embedded in the submitted PDF file.
  • The paper must be able to print clearly on standard black-and-white printers. Reviewers are not required to view your paper in color.

Important Dates

  • Paper submission deadline: February 4, 2011
  • Paper submission deadline Extended: February 18, 2011
  • Acceptance notification: April 4, 2011
  • Camera ready submission deadline: April 28, 2011
