(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.
IEEE WiMob 2014 will host three parallel symposiums, including but not limited to the following topics:
1. Wireless Communications Broadband Wireless Communication Systems Signal Separation and Interference Rejection Wireless Personal Communications Multimedia Communications over Wireless Advances in Satellite Communication DSP Applications to Wireless Systems Adaptive Antennas for Wireless Systems Modulation and Coding Multiple Access Techniques Multiuser Detection Femtocells Channel Measurement and Characterization Location Estimation and Tracking OFDM and CDMA Technologies and Systems Resource Allocation and Interference Management MIMO Channels Multirate and Multicarrier Communications Link and System Capacity Spectrum Usage and Cognitive radio systems Cognitive and cooperative MAC Cognitive Radio Applications and Spectrum Management

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:
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) 8) Can be submitted in PDF or plain text 9) Extended abstract to be presented in the conference proceedings
Responsibilities for Workshop Organizers Workshop chair(s) will be responsible for the following:
(1) Web page of the workshop and dissemination of "Call for Papers/Participation" for their workshop (2) Paper constraints, such as quality, originality, format and length constraints (3) Description of the workshop to be associated to the conference web page and program (4) Acceptance notification and selection of participants (5) Advertising the workshop beyond the conference web page (6) Assistance in producing a camera-ready version of the workshop proceedings
