   (The 2002 International Conference on Wireless Networks)

      ALL aspects of Wireless Networks and Technology are of interest.
      The topical outline will soon be available at


      It is planned to add other related conferences, symposiums,
      and workshops to be held simultaneously (same location and
      dates) for the 2002 International Multiconferences in Computer
      Science.  Each new conference will have it's own proceedings and
      technical/research sessions.  Contact H. R. Arabnia
      (hra@cs.uga.edu) if you are interested in organizing a conference,
      symposium, or a workshop.
      (The 2001 International Multiconference in Computer Science
      attracted over 1,400 participants from over 52 countries.)
