Call for Papers

EAI is actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation to ensure the safety, comfort and quality of experience
for attendees
and a successful course of the event.

EAI is committed to holding the conference in 2020 and Accepted Authors who are unable to attend the event in person will be given
an option to present their submission online. In case the situation prevents the event from taking place in its original location,
it will be held fully in an interactive, live online setting. Find out what EAI conference live streams look like and discover unique benefits
that online participation brings you: Learn more

Accepted Authors will be notified about the final decision regarding the conference setting before the Camera-ready deadline.


Building on the last decade’s success, the WiCON 2020 aims to tackle the aforementioned challenges of emerging wireless Internet communications, covering topics ranging from technology issues to new applications and test-bed developments, mainly focusing on next-generation wireless Internet, 5G, 6G, IoT, Industrial IoT, Healthcare IoT, and related methodologies.

WiCON 2020 aims to bring together researchers, leading academic scientists to share their experiences and research findings on all aspects of Wireless Internet Communications. It also offers a leading interdisciplinary forum for academics, educators, and practitioners to present and discuss the latest technologies, developments, practical challenges and approaches to Wireless Internet.

Prospective authors are kindly encouraged to participate in the conference by sending Abstracts, Full Papers, and Posters of their work. Last but not the least, middleware and platform providers, application developers, and smart object providers are also welcome.

WiCON attendees will present novel ideas, exchange points of view, and foster collaborations. Papers, posters, and demos expressing the point of view of middleware and platform providers, smart object providers, application developers, and researchers are particularly welcome.

We have seen rapid advances in various networking technologies over the last decade, and many types of networking and systems are becoming central parts of our daily lives. Furthermore, it was pointed out that existing wireline networks are unable to handle immersive and high-resolution multimedia, smart applications such as smart city, smart grid, wearables, smart IoT, autonomous vehicles, etc. Various wireless networks such as wireless sensor networks, cellular communications (e.g. LTE-A), WLAN, WiMax, and etc. provide many benefits such as increased capacity, extended transmission ranges, versatility in deployment and operations, but they usually lack network robustness and performance to handle the exploding nature of IoT.

With the proliferation of future wireless technologies and electronic devices, there is a fast-growing interest in the Wireless Internet. Emerging Wireless Internet technologies are expected to carry massive amounts of data at exponentially faster speeds, performance, more resilience, and scalability than existing wired/wireless networks to support a multitude of IoT application scenarios.

The Wireless Internet should support a new architecture, new radio access techniques, and rapid evolution to provide end-to-end low latency communication, reliability, mobility, dynamic performance, capacity, energy efficiency, security, flexibility, and connection density for the multitude of IoT applications, AI-powered applications, and new services. As such the Wireless Internet should be tailored with new networking architectures, models, strategies to support the rapidly staggering number of things and enable users to access the Internet from anywhere and at any time under secure communication environment.
