International Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing Conference (

In Cooperation with the IEEE Turkey Section

Istanbul, Turkey

July 5-8, 2011

Mobile Computing Symposium

Scope and Motivation

The Mobile Computing Symposium aims at providing the state-of-the-art research towards understanding the fundamentals of mobile computing and networking system. Mobile Computing is expected to encompass heterogeneous access technologies and the Internet backbone for providing multimedia services to both mobile and stationary users. It poses significant technical challenges to enable broadband wireless access with seamless and ubiquitous coverage and quality-of-service provisioning. The objective of this symposium is to serve as an international forum for experts from academia and industry to exchange ideas and results on research and development, and to promote and accelerate standardization, applications, and services of current and future wireless communication networks. Prospective authors are invited to submit original contributions on all aspects in wireless networks, applications and services.

Topics of Interest

The Mobile Computing Symposium welcomes original contributions not published or reviewed by any other journals or conferences. Papers dealing with fundamental problems associated with the topical areas and describing novel uses of communication and computation theory to solve the problems are of special interest. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:


Guideline for Authors
