NTMS'2014 is the Sixth IFIP International Conference on New

Technologies, Mobility and Security that will be held from March 30th

April 2nd in Dubai, UAE.

NTMS'2014 aims at fostering advances in the areas of New Technologies,

Wireless Networks, Mobile Computing, Ad hoc and Ambient Networks, QoS,

Network Security and E-commerce, to mention a few, and provides a

dynamic forum for researchers, students and professionals to present

their state-of-the-art research and development in these interesting


The event will be combined with tutorial sessions and workshops.

Tutorials will precede the main program, aiming at the dissemination

mature knowledge and technology advances in the field. Two or more

Workshops will immediately follow the main conference, offering the

opportunity for a more focused exchange of ideas and presentation of

going research relevant to following tracks (More information and the
