-- CALL FOR PAPERS - Deadline for submissions (extension): 14 April
2008 --

Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 22 to 24 July 2008
part of the IADIS Multi Conference on Computer Science and Information
Systems (MCCSIS 2008)
Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 22 to 27 July 2008

* Keynote Speaker (confirmed):
Professor Axel Küpper, of the LMU Munich, Germany
Professor Qusay H. Mahmoud, University of Guelph, Canada

* Conference background and goals
The IADIS Wireless Applications and Computing 2008 conference
addresses several themes related to theory and practice within
wireless networks, computing and application related areas.

Enormous developments in wireless technologies made in recent years
enabled both researchers and industry to create new, innovative
wireless and mobile application and
services, protocols, middleware platforms and application frameworks.
Corresponding research is related to all communication layers, but
also includes application-related
topics, theoretical results and non-technical issues. Main topics have
been identified (see below).
However, innovative contributions that don't fit into these areas will
also be considered since they might be of benefit to conference

* Format of the Conference
The conference will comprise of invited talks and oral presentations.
The proceedings of the conference will be published in the form of a
book and CD-ROM with ISBN, and will be available also in the IADIS
Digital Library (http://www.iadis.net/dl).
The best paper authors will be invited to publish extended versions of
their papers in the IADIS Journal on Computer Science and Information
Systems (ISSN: 1646-3692) and also on "International Journal of
Information Technology and Web Engineering" (IJITWE) (ISSN:
