WoWMoM 2019

Call for Workshops


The IEEE International Symposium on a World of Wireless, Mobile and Multimedia Networks (IEEE WoWMoM 2019), now in its 20th edition, is a premier forum for networking, software systems, and multimedia research in the wireless/mobile area.

The WoWMoM organizing committee invites proposals for full-day or half-day workshops affiliated with the conference. The purpose of these workshops is to provide a platform for presenting novel ideas in a less formal and possibly more focused way than at the conference itself. All WoWMoM workshops are expected to enable stimulating discussions of state-of-the-art, emerging, visionary, and perhaps controversial topics. Workshops should be organized to promote lively interaction. Workshop proposals are solicited in all areas and topics pertaining to wireless mobile and multimedia networking, and workshops addressing emerging research directions in these areas are highly welcome in particular.

Accepted WoWMoM 2019 workshop papers will be included and indexed in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library, showing their affiliation with IEEE WoWMoM. We expect all accepted workshops to adhere to a common paper submission and reviewing schedule, as outlined in the dates indicated below. Workshop co-chairs will be interacting with organizers of accepted workshops to ensure a high quality workshop program.


Each workshop proposal must include at least the following fields:

  1. The full name of the workshop and its intended acronym.
  2. The names, addresses, and a short bio (up to 200 words) of the organizers (up to three, from at least two different institutions).
  3. A brief description (up to 1 page) of the technical issues that the workshop will address, and the reasons why the workshop is of interest at this time.
  4. Some consideration on the communities/groups it intends to attract should be included.
  5. The names and affiliations of at least ten program committee member candidates.
  6. The planned format of the workshop (full-day/half-day) as well as a tentative schedule that demonstrates the strategy to facilitate lively discussions and the involvement of the attendees.
  7. The names of potential keynote speakers, if a keynote speech is included in the planned format of the workshop.
  8. If applicable, a description of past versions of the workshop, including dates, organizers, numbers of submitted and accepted papers, number of attendees.
  9. A tentative call for papers.
  10. A description of the planned activities for disseminating information about the workshop (e.g., CfPs) and the workshop web site.
