WiMob is an international forum for the exchange of knowledge and experience among researchers, developers and practitioners of wireless and mobile technology. For fourteen years, the International WiMob conference has provided unique opportunities for researchers and developers to interact, share new results, show live demonstrations, and discuss emerging directions in a number of contemporary topics in wireless and mobile computing.

WiMob 2019 is soliciting high quality technical papers addressing research challenges in the areas of wireless communications, wireless networking, mobility, nomadicity, ubiquitous computing, services and applications. Papers should present original work validated via analysis, simulation or experimentation. Practical experiences and Testbed trials also are welcome.

Topics of Interest

WiMob 2019 will host 5 parallel symposia on:

  • Wireless Communications
  • Wireless Networking, Mobility and Nomadicity
  • Ubiquitous Computing, Services and Applications
  • Green and Sustainable Communications and Network Computing
  • Security on Wireless and Mobile Networks

A full list of topics for each symposium can be found on the conference web site.
