With the steady recovery of the telecommunications industry sector, more 3G cellular mobile systems are being rolled out with increasing multimedia-oriented services and applications. More hotspots are planned and/or deployed leading to the proliferation of Wi-Fi wireless LANs. In addition, with the rapid emergence of WiMaX (IEEE 802.16), which provides wide area high speed access with the possibility of mobility support proves to be exciting and promising. In research laboratories, higher speed but shorter range radio systems such as Ultra Wideband (UWB) are under intense development, along with the concepts of pervasive computing and communications using wireless ad-hoc and sensor networks. The objective of this symposium is to provide a platform for researchers and technologists to present new ideas and contributions in the form of technical papers, panel discussions as well as testbed implementations and real-world evaluation of many ideas in wireless communications. To ensure complete coverage of advances in wireless communication and networking technologies for the current and future systems, the wireless communications, networks and systems symposium seeks original contributions in, but not limited to, the following topical areas.
