[DMANET] ACM Q2SWinet 2012: Call for Papers

Please accept our apologies if you receive multiple copies of this CFP.

The 8th ACM* Symposium on QoS and Security for Wireless Mobile Networks
(ACM Q2SWinet 2012)
October 21st-25th, 2012
Paphos, Cyprus

Jointly held with the 15th ACM MSWiM 2012 Conference.

* ACM Pending upon Approval

**** Paper Registration Deadline --- May 30th, 2012 ****

In recent years, wireless and mobile communication systems have become increasingly popular as an inexpensive and promising means for ubiquitous communications. In this scenario, the QoS provisioning and the management of network security have become crucial tasks to determine the success of future generation wireless mobile networks.This symposium calls for cutting-edge research achievements on the provisioning of QoS and Security in wireless and mobile networks. It also aims at increasing the synergy between academic and industry professionals working in this area.

Authors are encouraged to submit full papers presenting new research related to theory or practice of all aspects of Quality of Service and Security issues in mobile and wireless systems.

Topics of interest for ACM Q2SWinet 2012 include, but are not limited to:

+ Security in Wireless MANETs, VANETs, Sensor, Mesh and PCS Networks
+ Secure PHY, MAC and Routing Protocols
+ Secure Cooperation-Based Systems and Services
+ Security for Cognitive Radio Networks
+ Intrusion Detection in Wireless Ad hoc and Sensor Networks
+ Privacy, anonymity and authentication
+ Trust Establishment
+ Cooperation and Prevention of Non-cooperative Behavior
+ Incentive Aware Secure Protocol Design
+ QoS/QoE for Wireless Multimedia Networks and Systems
+ QoS/QoE for Wireless/Wired Hybrid Systems
+ QoS/QoE support and Mobility Management in Wireless Internet
+ QoS/QoE-Aware Routing for Wireless Networks
+ QoS/QoE Metrics
+ Wireless Network Survivability
+ Wireless Systems Reliability
+ Field operating tests, Performance Modeling and Simulation Techniques
+ Real-time and QoS-aware Wireless Networks

Papers should neither have been published elsewhere nor being currently under review by another conference or journal. Manuscripts are limited to 10 pages, single spacing, double column, and must strictly adhere to the ACM template format. Guidelines on paper submission and formatting are available at http://cnd.iit.cnr.it/q2swinet2012/.

Submission is managed electronically through EDAS: http://edas.info/N12037

At least one author of each accepted paper must be registered for the symposium, in order for that paper to appear in the ACM proceedings and to be scheduled for presentation. Furthermore, authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the Symposium.
