The International Conference on Selected Topics iCOST 2012 in Mobile & Wireless Networking will be held in Avignon, France. The ever increasing market penetration of smart-phones, tables, and netbooks, along with the ubiquitous availability of wireless networks are deeply influencing the way people live, work, interact, and socialize. However, the broad popularity and diffusion of innovative services and applications tailored at mobile users is also raising challenging research issues that require us to rethink available mobile technology solutions to meet the emerging needs of a broader and ever growing user base. The iCOST’2012 aim at addressing recent research results on selected topics in Mobile & Wireless Networking and to present their methodologies, models, technologies, systems, tools, applications, work in progress and experiences. Suggested topics include but are not restricted to:

-Cloud computing support for mobile services and applications,

- Data center architectures and protocols,

-Green communications models, architectures, and networking solutions,

-Self-* networks, services and applications,

-Content distribution networks,

-Social networking solutions for pervasive and mobile environments,

-Vehicular communications and vehicular ad-hoc networks,

-Wireless-enabled Peer to Peer services and applications,

-Internet of Things,

-Machine type communications,

-Context-aware middleware design, services and applications,

-Long Term Evolution Engineering,

-Emerging topics in wireless and mobile computing and communications,

-Security, trust, and privacy in wireless/mobile communications,

-Heterogeneous networks,

-Communication networks and architectures for smart grids,

-Resource allocation and interference management in Smart Grid networks.


High-quality full papers which at the time of submission, are not under review and have not already been published or accepted for publication elsewhere are solicited. The first page should include the paper's title, the abstract, a list of keywords indicating the paper's topic area(s), the authors' full names, affiliations, and e-mail addresses.

Authors are required to submit fully formatted papers (PDF), with graphs, images, and other special areas arranged as intended for the final publication. Papers should be written in English conforming to the IEEE standard conference format (8.5" x 11" - US letter, Two-Column). The initial submission for review will be limited to 6 pages. The final manuscript for publication will be limited to 6 IEEE pages. Your paper must be printable in order to be accepted.

Each accepted paper must be presented at the conference, otherwise it will not be included in the conference proceedings and it will not be indexed and archived through IEEExplore. You can find a copy of the IEEE standard conference template for Microsoft Word or LaTeX formats at here.
