The official language of the conference for submission of
a paper and or an extended abstract and view graphs is English.
This conference will identify the theoretical and actual problems
that face designers of today's complex problems associated
with mobile and wireless communications networks.
The participants will show test results of experiments
from building prototype systems, explore modeling and simulation tools
as well as analytical methodologies and techniques
for dealing with wireless systems.

The objective of this event is to foster the exchange of information
among researchers in this fast-moving field.
The program will include presentations by distinguished researchers,
speaking on recent advances in theory and practice.
This conference also intends to bring together
various mobile and wireless network systems developers to discuss
the current status, technical challenges, standards, fundamental issues,
and future services and applications in the form of
workshops, business applications sessions and tutorials.
It is also intended to provide a timely forum for exploratory research
and practical contributions from North America, Europe,
The Middle East, and the Far East.
