WMNNG’18


The 2nd International Workshop on Wireless and Mobile Networks of Next-Generation


International Workshop on Wireless and Mobile Networks of Next-Generation (WMNNG’18) will be held at Faculty of Sciences, Kenitra, Morocco on April 04th and 05th 2018.

Overview

The next generation of wireless and mobile networks is expected to allow a single mobile user to access heterogeneous wireless and mobile networks. Due to the mobility of users and the heterogeneity of different radio access technologies, Quality of Service (QoS) still a critical issue for an integrated wireless and mobile network. In addition, QoS does not take in consideration the user’s perception and expectations, in other words Quality-of-Experience (QoE), of the service provided. So, understanding the impact of end-users’ behavior, increasingly attract the attention of the industrials and researchers community, contribute to design a successful Next Generation Networks.

The main objective of this International Workshop is to solicit research on QoS/QoE in Mobile and Wireless Networks of Next-Generation. We encourage submissions, including recent experimental, theoretical and numerical results, related to studies in such communication environment.

Topics

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following scope:

• Architecture of integrated heterogamous networks
• Integration of fixed and mobile networks
• Handoff and mobility management
• Integration of heterogeneous networks
• Cross-layer design and optimization
• Network management and planning
• Wireless routing protocols
• Multimedia communications
• Multicasting and broadcasting protocols
• Performance analysis and optimization
• Congestion control algorithms and scheduling
• Ad hoc and sensor networks
• Cellular networks
• Performance evaluation of NG networks
• Quality of Service (QoS) and Experience (QoE)
• QoS-QoE relationship modeling
• QoS/QoS provisioning
• QoE: user-perceived quality, cost-sensitive experience
• Efficient video codec design with guaranteed QoE
• QoS/QoE evaluation in wireless networks
• Subjective QoE testing of wireless social networking services
• Real experiments and testbeds for QoE evaluation
• QoS/QoE-aware resource allocation in wireless networks
• QoS/QoE-aware heterogeneous networks architecture and performance analysis
• Service differentiation and multi-service support
• Traffic measurements, modeling and statistical characterization
• Optimization algorithms and heuristics for network dimensioning
