MOBILIGHT 2010 : 2nd Conference on Mobile Lightweight Wireless Systems
Conference Series : Mobile Lightweight Wireless Systems
Call For Papers
Wireless communications are becoming increasingly pervasive, as the number and spreading of portable wireless-equipped devices are exponentially increasing (ranging from smartphones to handheld game consoles, from personal digital assistant and personal navigation devices to still and video cameras). This results in an unprecedented request for lightweight, wireless communication devices with excellent usability and performance as well as the ability to support added-value services in a highly mobile environment - following the user everywhere he goes (at work, at home, while travelling, in a classroom, etc.). Besides attractive business opportunities this opens up exciting research and development areas.
This scenario clearly demands significant upgrades to the existing communication paradigm in terms of infrastructure, devices and services to support the ANYTIME, ANYWHERE, ANY DEVICE philosophy, introducing novel and fast-evolving requirements and expectations on research and development in the field of information and communication technologies. The core issue is to support wireless users' desire of 24/7 reliable network availability and transparent access to "their own" personalized services.
In this framework and motivated by the interdisciplinary competences needed to build successful lightweight wireless systems, the MOBILIGHT conference will provide an international forum where practitioners and researchers coming from the diverse areas involved in lightweight wireless systems design and deployment will be able to interact and exchange experiences, and thus realize cross-fertilization among the different worlds of academia, research centers and industry.
Prospective authors are invited to submit original and unpublished technical papers to the following tracks:
• TECHNOLOGIES & ARCHITECTURES
