Call For Papers —— 8th International Conference on Mobile Multimedia Communications (MobiMedia 2015)
Special Track on Next Generation Communications and Networking Technologies
The rising tides of big data, cloud computing and other applications with massive scale of transmission are driving tremendous demand for faster and more efficient networks. It is believed that the next generation network (NGN), a packet-based network designed to provide telecommunication services, makes use of multiple broadband, Quality-of-Service-enabled transport technologies, will be backbone of the potential solution in the near future. Meanwhile, the interpenetration of NGN and next-generation wireless communications techniques has gained a worldwide attention, and is supposed be the next "flash point" to the future communication industry. The next generation communications and networking technologies (NGCNT) track aims to assemble and distribute the state-of-the-art technologies, developments and challenges in the field of NGN and other aspects of promising future communication and networking technologies. We invite you to submit papers in all areas of next generation wireless communications, networks, services, and applications.
