*** First Call for Papers ***
*** Call for Workshop Proposals ***

The 10th IEEE International Conference on Wireless and Mobile
Computing, Networking and Communications
WiMob 2014

Golden Bay Hotel, Larnaca, Cyprus
October 8-10, 2014

Deadline for Workshop Proposals: March 31, 2014
Deadline for Paper Submissions: May 1, 2014

(Proceedings will be published by IEEE)

The IEEE WiMob conference is an international forum for the exchange of
experience and knowledge among researchers and developers concerned with
wireless and mobile technology. For nine years, the International IEEE WiMob
conference has provided unique opportunities for researchers to interact,
share new results, show live demonstrations, and discuss emerging directions
in Wireless Communications, Mobile Networking and Ubiquitous Computing.

IEEE WiMob 2014 will take place at Larnaca, Cyprus, between October 8 to
10th, 2014. It will be held at the Golden Bay Beach Hotel, a luxurious 5 star
hotel situated in the favored south eastern region of Cyprus at the heart of
the Bay of Larnaca.

IEEE WiMob 2014 is soliciting high quality technical papers addressing
research challenges in the areas of wireless communications, wireless
networking, mobility, nomadicity, ubiquitous computing, services and
applications. Papers should present original work validated via analysis,
simulation or experimentation. Practical experiences and Testbed trials
also are welcome.

Workshop Proposals
As part of the program of WiMob 2014, a limited number of
workshops are planned to be held in conjunction with the main
conference. The main aim of the workshops is to provide an
international forum for researchers to present their early
research results and share experiences focused on specific
research areas related to the main conference topics.

Workshop proposals are solicited in all areas and topics related
to wireless networking, mobile computing, mobile and wireless
communications, pervasive computing and networking, and its
services and applications.

All papers accepted by the workshops will be included in the
WiMob 2014 Proceedings published by IEEE.

All proposals and questions should be submitted to the workshop chairs:

* Ebrahim Bagheri, Ryerson University, bagheri at
* Joaquin Garcia-Alfaro, Telecom SudParis, garcia_a at
* Joan Garcia Haro, Universidad Politecnica de Cartagena, joang.haro at
* Luis Orozco Barbosa, Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha, luis.orozco at

Acceptance/rejection notification will be sent to workshop organizers.

Proposals for workshops should be no more than 2 pages in
length and should contain the following information:

1) A draft of the CFP of the workshop (includes title, description, topics and dates)
2) Proposed duration of the workshop
3) Why is the topic area important?
4) Likely contributors and target audience
5) Organizing committee
6) Plan for workshop advertising and publicity
7) Biography of the main organizer(s) (100-200 words)
