ACM Q2SWinet 2011 is the 7th Annual International Symposium on QoS and Security for Wireless and Mobile Networks. Q2SWinet will be a symposium, held in conjunction with the 14-th Annual ACM/IEEE Conference on Modeling, Analysis and Simulation of Wireless and Mobile Systems (MsWim 2011). The symposium will bring together networking researchers, engineers, and practitioners with participants from industry, academia, and government. Q2SWinet 2011 will be held in the period October 31- November 4, 2011 in Miami Beach, FL, USA
In recent years, wireless and mobile communication systems have become increasingly popular as an inexpensive and promising means for ubiquitous communications. In this scenario, the QoS provisioning and the management of network security have become crucial tasks to determine the success of future generation wireless mobile networks. This symposium calls for cutting-edge research achievements on the provisioning of QoS and Security in wireless and mobile networks.

Authors are encouraged to submit full papers presenting new research related to theory or practice of all aspects of Quality of Service and Security issues in mobile and wireless systems. Submitted papers must not have been published elsewhere, nor currently under review in other conferences or journals.

Topics at a Glance
The topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Security in Wireless MANETs, VANETs, Sensor, Mesh and PCS Networks
  • Secure PHY, MAC and Routing Protocols
