The Fourth International Conference on Selected Topics in Mobile & Wireless Networking (MoWNet'2014) will be held in Rome, Italy. It follows three editions of MoWNet'2013, iCOST'2012 and iCOST'2011 which were held in Montreal/Canada, Avignon/France and Shanghai/China, respectively. The ever increasing market penetration of smart-phones, tablets, and netbooks, along with the ubiquitous availability of wireless networks are deeply influencing the way people live, work, interact, and socialize. However, the broad popularity and diffusion of innovative services and applications tailored at mobile users is also raising challenging research issues that require us to rethink available mobile technology solutions to meet the emerging needs of a broader and ever growing user base.

MoWNet'2014 aims at addressing recent research results on selected topics in Mobile & Wireless Networking and to present their methodologies, models, technologies, systems, tools, applications, work in progress and experiences. Suggested topics include but are not restricted to:

  • Cloud computing support for mobile services and applications
  • Data center architectures and protocols
  • Green communications models, architectures, and networking solutions
  • Self-* networks, services and applications
  • Content distribution networks
  • Social networking solutions for pervasive and mobile environments
  • Vehicular communications and vehicular ad-hoc networks
  • Wireless-enabled Peer to Peer services and applications
  • Internet of Things
  • Machine type communications
  • Context-aware middleware design, services and applications
  • Long Term Evolution Engineering and Femtocells
  • Emerging topics in wireless and mobile computing and communications
  • Security, trust, and privacy in wireless/mobile communications
  • Heterogeneous networks
  • Communication networks and architectures for smart grids
