International MultiConference of Engineers and Computer Scientists 2006

Hong Kong, 20-22 June, 2006

The 2006 IAENG International Workshop on Wireless Networks (IWWN'06)


The IWWN'06 has the focus on some specific issues for wireless LAN, PAN, sensor networks and ad hoc networks such as efficient management of energy, the security, the behaviour of different protocols over these networks, the theoretical and applied study of these networks in a disconnected and weakly connected operation and middlewares/agents/proxies based solutions.

This workshop is held as part of the International MultiConference of Engineers and Computer Scientists 2006. The IMECS 2006 is organized by the International Association of Engineers (IAENG), and serves as good platforms for the engineering community members to meet with each other and to exchange ideas. Extended version of the papers under this workshop can be included in the special issue of our journal Engineering Letters. And, further extended version can also be included in a book called "Current Trends in Wireless Networks" to be published by IAENG.
