The WWIC conference is now a well-established conference in all Internet communications aspects. This 12th edition focus on the new trends of Internet and its extension beyond its traditional boundaries (i.e., areas with network infrastructure) through gradually incorporating a wide-range of challenging networks and autonomous devices. From traditional wireless networks to opportunistic networks of mobile devices in urban environments and deep-space communications, the new approaches require an efficient integration with the traditional wired infrastructure. The need for novel all-weather protocols, clean-slate or evolutionary architectures, merging and assembling of different network technologies, unified operation and management of the heterogeneous components and supports for new multimedia services are only few examples of the wide range of technologies building-up this new global network. WWIC addresses research topics such as the design and
 evaluation of protocols, the dynamics of the integration, the performance tradeoffs, the need for new performance metrics and cross-layer interactions. The goal of the conference is to present high-quality results in the field, and to provide a framework for research collaboration through focused discussions that will designate future research efforts and directions.

Prospective authors are asked to submit only novel, previously unpublished papers through EDAS submission system.The proceedings will be published by Springer in the series Lecture Notes in Computer Science which is indexed by the following services: ISI Conference Proceedings Citation Index - Science (CPCI-S) included in ISI Web of Science, EI Engineering Index (Compendex and Inspec databases), ACM Digital Library, Scopus, dblp, Google Scholar, IO-Port, MathSciNet, Zentralblatt MATH.

The maximum size of papers should be 14 pages including tables and figures. The cover page must contain an abstract of at least 70 and at most 150 words, 3-5 keywords, name and affiliation of author(s) as well as the corresponding author's e-mail and postal address. In your submission, please adhere to the formatting standard for a 14-page manuscript of Springer-Verlag. There you will find templates for preparing the submission using either LaTeX (recommended) or Microsoft Word. Notice that in the submission phase we only accept a PDF document produced from the properly formatted original editable document.

Accepted papers must be presented at the Conference. The presenter must register for the Conference before the deadline for author registration. Failure to register before the deadline will result in automatic withdrawal of the paper from the Conference proceedings and the program.

All papers selected for publication will be included in a LNCS volume edited by Springer.
