CALL FOR PAPERS
IEEE International Conference on Software, Telecommunications
and Computer Networks
Workshop on Future Wireless Communications
October 09-12, 2001
Split, Dubrovnik (Croatia)
Ancona, Bari (Italy)
Workshop on Future Wireless Communications will be held aboard the
ship Marko Polo travelling on the route Split (Croatia)
Ancona (Italy) Bari (Italy) Dubrovnik (Croatia) in the frame
of the 9 th International Conference on Software, Telecommunications
and Computer Networks SoftCOM 2001.
The increasing popularity of wireless networks indicates that most
of future networking structures will be based on wireless networking
technologies (Satellite, Ad Hoc, UMTS, ..). Wireless communication
poses some problems that do not exist in wired networks, such as
limited resources and fading due to mobility. This has generated an
enormous interest for new communication protocols and enhanced
traffic/resource management mechanisms.
This Workshop on Future Wireless Communications will cover both
and pratical aspects and will provide an opportunity for researchers
to meet and discuss aspects of their work in an informal setting.
Papers presenting new results in (but not limited to) the following areas
* Emerging Satellite Systems
* Protocols for Ad Hoc Wireless Networks
* Transport/Data Link Protocols for Mobile Satellite Communications
* QoS in Wireless Networks
* Heterogeneous Wireless Networks
* Traffic & Resource Management in Satellite Networks
* Integration between Wired and Wireless (Satellite, Ad Hoc,
* Services and Applications for Wireless Communications
Each day of the conference the ship will be anchored in one of the ports
on the route, and overnight it will sail towards the next destination.
This provides participants with the opportunity to share ideas in close
contact with their coleagues and to enjoy the pleasant and inspiring
ambience while visiting the ports along the beautiful Adriatic coast.
During the conference the car deck will serve as an exhibition arena for
exhibitors of software and telecommunication products.
Complete manuscript to be received by July 1, 2001
Notification of acceptance mailed out by September 1, 2001
Camera-ready manuscript to be received by September 15, 2001
