The 5th Annual International Wireless Internet Conference (WICON 2010)

The Holiday Inn Atrium, Singapore



Wireless Internet is quickly emerging as a reality, thanks to the fast
evolution of many wireless access technologies. Convergence of
heterogeneous wireless networks and the next generation Internet further
brings wireless Internet into a variety of application scenarios which
provide mobile users with a wide range of highly demanding services,
such as high speed data and real-time multimedia delivery. On the other
hand, it is of critical importance to obtain a fundamental understanding
of wireless Internet architectures and explore new services and
solutions in order to achieve the ultimate goal of wireless Internet
access anytime anywhere.


The Wireless Internet Conference (WICON) will continue to serve as a
premier international forum to discuss novel research results related to
the emerging Wireless Internet. WICON 2010 is soliciting both academic
research and industry practice papers. Papers solicited in the WICON
2010 can be divided into FOUR tracks, PHY, MAC, Network and
Service/Application tracks, and span a wide range of areas of interest
including but not limited to:
