The 12th International Conference on Wired & Wireless Internet Communications.
The Internet is being extended beyond its traditional boundaries (i.e., areas with network infrastructure) through gradually incorporating a wide-range of challenging networks and autonomous devices. From traditional wireless networks to opportunistic networks of mobile devices in urban environments and deep-space communications, the new approaches require an efficient integration with the traditional wired infrastructure. The need for novel all-weather protocols, clean-slate or evolutionary architectures, merging and assembling of different network technologies, unified operation and management of the heterogeneous components and supports for new multimedia services are only few examples of the wide range of technologies building-up this new global network.
WWIC addresses research topics such as the design and evaluation of protocols, the dynamics of the integration, the performance tradeoffs, the need for new performance metrics and cross-layer interactions. The goal of the conference is to present high-quality results in the field, and to provide a framework for research collaboration through focused discussions that will designate future research efforts and directions.
