Call for papers

In recent years, wireless and mobile communication systems have become increasingly popular as an inexpensive and promising means for ubiquitous communications. In this scenario, the QoS provisioning and the management of network security have become crucial tasks to determine the success of future generation wireless mobile networks. This symposium calls for cutting-edge research achievements on the provisioning of QoS and Security in wireless and mobile networks. It also aims at increasing the synergy between academic and industry professionals working in this area.

Authors are encouraged to submit complete papers presenting new research related to theory or practice of all aspects of Quality of Service and Security issues in mobile and wireless systems.

The topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Security in Wireless MANETs, VANETs, Sensor, Mesh and PCS Networks
  • Secure PHY, MAC and Routing Protocols
  • Secure Cooperation-Based Systems and Services
  • Intrusion Detection in Wireless Ad hoc and Sensor Networks
  • Privacy, anonymity and authentication
  • Trust Establishment
  • Cooperation and Prevention of Non-cooperative Behavior
  • Incentive Aware Secure Protocol Design
  • QoS for Wireless Multimedia Networks and Systems
  • QoS for Wireless/Wired Hybrid Systems
  • QoS support and Mobility Management in Wireless Internet
  • QoS-Aware Routing for Wireless Networks
  • QoS Metrics
  • Wireless Network Survivability
  • Wireless Systems Reliability
  • Field operating tests, Performance Modeling and Simulation Techniques
  • Real-time and QoS-aware Wireless Networks

Paper submission and publication

Papers should neither have been published elsewhere nor currently under review by another conference or journal. Guidelines on paper submission and formatting are available here. Accepted papers will appear in the symposium proceedings published by ACM*. Please note that all accepted papers will need to have a full registration to the symposium (there will also be a symposium-only registration separated by the main conference registration). In addition, at least one author of each accepted paper is required to present his/her work at the symposium. No-shows of accepted papers at the symposium will result in those papers NOT being included in the ACM Digital Library.
