To be held in conjunction with The 11th IEEE ISPA-2013 (http://anss.org.au/ispa2013/) The accepted papers from this workshop will be included into the IEEE conference proceedings published by IEEE Computer Society, and will be indexed by EI
INTRODUCTION The wireless communication technologies have evolved quickly over the past years. As the explosive growth in broadband wireless networks, multimedia applications will dominate the future wireless communication society, resulting in non-trivial problems in terms of available capacity, reliability, quality-of-service, delay, and throughput.
To successfully support wireless multimedia applications, it is necessary to improve the state-of-the-art techniques (such as radio resource management, mobility, handoff, and location management, etc.) in the multimedia transmission over wireless networks in order to provide quality-of-service guarantees between the end-users and achieve a high quality-of-experience for end-users.
This workshop will address the important problems and challenges caused by the transmission of multimedia applications over wireless networks. The workshop aims to bring together computer scientists and engineers in different disciplines to share and exchange their experience and ideas and discuss state-of-the-art and in-progress research on all aspects of wireless networks and multimedia applications.
The topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to:
1. Ultra-Wideband Networks
2. Wireless Ad Hoc and Mesh Networks
3. Wireless Personal Area Networks
4. Wireless Local Area Networks
5. Wireless Sensor Networks
6. Wireless Metropolitan Area Networks
7. Cellular Networks
9. Optical Wireless Access Networks
10. Mobile Computing and Wireless Communications
11. Future Wireless Networks and Protocols
12. Multimedia Communications and Services
13. Congestion and Admission Control
14. Wireless MAC Protocols: Design and Analysis
15. Quality of Service Provisioning
16. Wireless Network Trust, Privacy and Security
17. Software Defined Radio & Software Defined Networking
18. Cross-Layer Design and Adaptation
19. Radio Resource Management
20. Mobility, Handoff and Location Management
21. Performance Modeling and Evaluation
22. Wireless and Mobile Network Architecture
