The 5th International Workshop on Wireless Multimedia

Networking and comPuting

held in conjunction with

The 12th ACM International Conference on Modeling, Analysis, and

Simulation of Wireless and Mobile Systems (MSWiM'09)

26-30 October, 2009, Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain

|| Scope ||

The Fifth ACM International Workshop on Wireless Multimedia Networking and comPuting (WMuNeP) will be a one-day workshop, held in conjunction with the 12th Annual ACM International Conference on Modeling, Analysis and Simulation of Wireless and Mobile Systems (MSWiM´09), in Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain.

The demand for wireless multimedia communications thrives in today's consumer and corporate market. The need to evolve multimedia applications and services, and their associated protocols for emerging networks is at a critical point given the proliferation and integration of wireless systems to intelligent and broadband networks, mobility of people, data/voice convergence and the integration of computing and communication in mobile devices. This workshop is devoted to cover different aspects of wireless multimedia networking and performance modeling for WLANs, WPANs, WMANs, WWANs, MANETs, VANETs and sensor networks such as wireless video and wireless streaming, systematic design methodologies, algorithms, synchronization, analysis and performance modeling. The workshop will provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to present their contributions related to the above high-level aspects.
