[DMANET] WASA 2019 (Hawaii, USA) - Call for Papers

The 14th International Conference on Wireless Algorithms,
Systems, and Applications (WASA)
June 24-26, 2019, Ala Moana Hotel, Honolulu, HI 96814, USA
Call for Papers

WASA is an international conference on algorithms, systems, and applications of wireless networks. It is motivated by the recent advances in cutting-edge electronic and computer technologies that have paved the way for the proliferation of ubiquitous infrastructure and infrastructureless wireless networks.

WASA is designed to be a forum for theoreticians, system and application designers, protocol developers and practitioners to discuss and express their views on the current trends, challenges, and state-of-the-art solutions related to various issues in wireless networks. Topics of interests include, but are not limited to, effective and efficient state-of-the-art algorithm design and analysis, reliable and secure system development and implementations, experimental study and testbed validation, and new application exploration in wireless networks.

In addition to technical sessions and panels, WASA 2019 will feature several keynote speeches, given by leading researchers and practitioners in the areas of algorithms, systems, and applications in wireless networks.
