IEEE WoWMoM 2020 – Now Taking Place Virtually
The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority. After evaluating the current COVID-19 situation, the decision has been made to transform the in-person component of IEEE WoWMoM 2020 into an all-digital conference experience – IEEE WoWMoM 2020 will now be an online event. Therefore, IEEE WoWMoM 2020 will no longer take place in Cork, Ireland and will instead take place virtually. The conference dates remain the same – 31st August 2020 to 3rd September 2020. Proceedings will not be cancelled, and publications will continue as planned. For questions, contact Ms. Claire Collins at Claire.collins@ucc.ie.

Welcome to the 21st IEEE International Symposium on a World of Wireless, Mobile and Multimedia Networks (WoWMoM), the conference for researchers and practitioners interested in all aspects of wireless, mobile, and multimedia pervasive communications. WoWMoM 2020 will be held in Cork, Ireland. Cork is the Republic of Ireland’s second largest city and located on the South Coast of Ireland. Surrounded by beautiful country side, Cork is the starting point of the Wild Atlantic Way, and has the world’s second largest natural harbour. WoWMoM will be hosted on the beautiful campus of University College Cork.

WoWMoM’s programme focuses on wireless networking technologies and their key role in future Internet scenarios. The symposium addresses the increasing wealth of opportunities for distributing multimedia contents over wireless networks, enabling dissemination of professional contents to mobile users as well as sharing user-generated contents among them. Users will be able to retrieve, publish, and manage information, communicate with other users or devices, access and author services, and create and exploit context-awareness. Papers that present original work, validated by experimentation, simulation, or analysis, are solicited. Practical experiences and experimental efforts from both industry and academia, duly documenting the lessons learned from testbeds, field-trials, or real deployments, are also welcome.

WoWMoM 2020 will be a four-day conference with a technical programme including paper presentations, keynote speeches, hot-topic panel sessions, demonstrations, and a PhD forum. We also plan to hold several workshops in conjunction with the symposium. All papers (regular, workshops, demo, PhD forum) will be included and indexed in the IEEE Digital Library (IEEE Xplore), showing their affiliation with IEEE WoWMoM. Last but not least, as in the WoWMoM tradition, high quality social events, including a welcome reception and a gala dinner will be organized. Extended versions of selected papers will be considered for publication in the Pervasive and Mobile Computing journal.
