2011 International Workshop on

Future Wireless Communications and Ubiquitous Computing (FWC-UC’11)




At the 5th International Conference on Complex Distributed Systems (CODS'2011)

Mannheim, Germany, 5-7 December 2011



Wireless communications have remained one of the most vibrant and stimulating areas in driving forward the Information and Communications Technology. The tomorrow’s picture of networks and communications appears as the convergence of diversified networks, integration of IP based core network and flexible robust wireless access, self-organization and self-management, on-demand service-oriented architectures, to just mention a few striking characteristics.
