Welcome to WWIC 2010 in Luleå
Since the first event in 2002, International Conference on Wired/Wireless Internet Communications (WWIC) has been established as a highly selective conference focusing on the rapidly developing field of wireless networking and providing an international forum for the presentation and discussion of cutting-edge research in the field.
Next generation mobile networks will be based on Internet core networks and wireless access networks. The need for efficient merging of the wired and wireless infrastructure as well as the new multimedia services and applications of next generation networks call for novel network architectures, protocols and traffic-related mechanisms. WWIC addresses research topics such as the design and evaluation of protocols, the dynamics of the integration, the performance tradeoffs, the need for new performance metrics, and cross-layer interactions.
The eighth edition of WWIC is organized by Luleå University of Technology in June 2010. The organizing team would like to extend a very warm welcome to all delegates of WWIC 2010. We hope you will enjoy an unforgettable experience of midnight sun and wish you a pleasant stay in our city!

4th ERCIM eMobility Workshop
May 31, 2010 - Luleå, Sweden
Progress in computing and (wireless) communication technologies allow mobile users to permanently communicate with other persons or to use services and applications that might even have been designed for mobile users. Mobile Applications and services require technical solutions on various levels such as wireless network technologies, communication architectures and protocols supporting mobility of users and devices, middleware to support security and flexibility, as well as applications that are adaptive and context sensitive, although or because mobile devices have usually limited resources. The target of the workshop is to discuss issues and problems related to future applications and services based on mobile and wireless technologies.ERCIM Workshop Program
New on WWIC 2010: A Midnight Sun Madness session
At the end of day one of the conference all the participants will be transfered to the Arctic Circle where after a welcome dinner the conference will continue with a Midnight Sun Madness session starting at 00:00. During the session each speacker will be granted one minute time slot to present his/her outrageous ideas on a free topic within the technical scopeof the conference.
