The 2010 IEEE International Workshop on Heterogeneous Multimedia Wireless Networks (HMWN-2010), Bradford, UK, 29 June ¨C 01 July, 2010


To be held in conjunction with the 10th IEEE ScalCom-2010

Sponsored by IEEE, IEEE Computer Society, and IEEE TCSC

Paper Submission Deadline: 26 February, 2010

The technologies for wireless networks, such as cellular networks, satellite, Wi-Fi, WiMAX, wireless sensor networks (WSNs), wireless personal area networks (WPANs), wireless local area networks (WLANs), and wireless metropolitan area networks (WMANs) have evolved quickly during the past years. As the wireless network traffic is constantly growing at an alarming rate, wireless multimedia applications will dominate the future wireless communication society pointing to the crucial need for the integration of different wireless technologies that emerges as an effective approach to accommodate the increasing demand of users to communicate with each other and access the Internet.

This workshop will bring together computer scientists and engineers in different disciplines to share and exchange their experiences and ideas and discuss state-of-the-art and in-progress research on all aspects of heterogeneous wireless networks. 

The topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to:
- Ultra-Wideband Networks 
- Wireless Ad Hoc and Mesh Networks
- Wireless Personal Area Networks 
- Wireless Local Area Networks
- Wireless Sensor Networks
- Wireless Metropolitan Area Networks
- Cellular Networks
- Optical Wireless Access Networks
- Mobile Computing and Wireless Communications
- Multimedia Communications and Services
- Congestion and Admission Control
- Wireless MAC Protocols: Design and Analysis
- Quality of Service (QoS) Provisioning
- Wireless Network Security and Privacy
- Cognitive Radio and Software Defined Radio 
- Cross-Layer Design and Optimization
- Radio Resource Management
- Mobility, Handoff and Location Management
- Performance Modeling and Evaluation
