WWIC 2019 - 17th International Conference on Wired/Wireless Internet Communications

Date2019-06-17 - 2019-06-19


VenueBologna, Italy Italy



Topics/Call fo Papers

Due to advancements in technology and development of new services, we
foresee a tremendous growth of new devices and smart things that need to
be connected to the Internet through a variety of wireless technologies.
At the same time, the edge of the Internet is increasingly empowered
with new capabilities, like pervasive sensing and computing power, which
opens the way to new domains, services and business models beyond
traditional mobile Internet, such as connected cars, participatory and
urban sensing, industrial IoT. As a consequence, new types of
information have to be delivered by the network with varying
requirements in terms of reliability, transmission rates and latency. To
cope with the exponential growth of devices and mobile data traffic,
there is a need for clean-slate or evolutionary Internet architectures
merging and assembling different network technologies, supporting new
paradigms for wired/wireless system planning and optimization, efficient
transport over heterogeneous wireless access options, efficient and
quality-aware content distribution, and new approaches for unified
operations and management of the heterogeneous components, like
software-defined systems and network function virtualization. These are
only some examples of the challenges that are of interest to IFIP WWIC
The IFIP WWIC 2019 conference takes a broader view to the merge of wired
and wireless technologies and welcomes submissions from academia and
industry that explore challenges and advances in architectures,
algorithms, protocols, and technologies for a global wired/wireless
Internet network. Papers that present original work, validated by
experimentation, simulation, or analysis, are solicited. We also
encourage work-in-progress and position papers that describe highly
original ideas, present new directions, or have the potential to
generate insightful provocative discussions. 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.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Anticipatory Mobile Networking
- Architectures and protocols for unified operations and management in
wired/wireless environments
- Architectures and protocols for mobile edge/fog computing
- Content-centric and user-centric networking in wired/wireless
