The 14-th International Workshop on Next Generation of Wireless and Mobile Networks (NGWMN-2021)

To be held in conjunction with The 16-th International Conference on Broadband and Wireless Computing, Communication and Applications, Fukuoka Institute of Technology (FIT), Fukuoka, Japan, October 28-30,


The next generation of wireless and mobile networks is expected to allow a single mobile user to access heterogeneous wireless and mobile networks. Since wireless cellular networks such as 3G systems (e.g., WCDMA, UMTA, cdma200, etc) and WLANs (e.g., IEEE 802.11a/b/e/g/n, WiMax, etc) are two typical existing networks, the integration and interoperability issues become new challenges. The internetworking of different types of wireless and mobile networks aims to provide seamless services for the mobile users among different type of networks. Due to the heterogeneity of different radio access techniques, different types of traffic and applications, Quality of Service (QoS) guarantee also becomes a critical issue for an integrated wireless and mobile network. Therefore, this workshop will provide a timely technical forum for the dissemination of new results in this exciting research area and is devoted to the architectures, protocols, resource management, mobility management, and scheduling in integrated wireless and mobile networks. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Architecture of integrated heterogamous networks
  • Handoff and mobility management
  • Integration of heterogeneous networks
  • Resource management
  • Multi-interface access protocols
  • QoS provisioning
  • Cross-layer design and optimization
  • Load balancing and activity scheduling
  • MAC protocols
  • Network management and planning
  • Routing protocols
  • Multimedia communications
  • Multicasting and broadcasting protocols
  • Performance analysis and optimization
  • Congestion control algorithms and scheduling
  • Cooperation and trust management
  • Topology control and management
  • Network topology
  • Security issue of internetworking
  • Opportunistic networks


Authors should submit a paper to the main conference with maximum 12 pages in length, including all figures, tables, and references. Workshop papers should be maximum 10 pages long. However, authors can add up to 2 extra pages with the appropriate fee payment.

Papers must be prepared using the Lecture Notes Style of Springer Proceedings (download from HERE source files), and must be formatted in PDF format.
