The 1st International Workshop on Wireless and Mobile Networks of Next-Generation

International Workshop on Wireless and Mobile Networks of Next-Generation (WMNNG’17) will be held at National School of Applied Sciences (ENSA), Tetuan, Morocco on March 29th and 30th 2017.


The next generation of wireless and mobile networks is expected to allow a single mobile user to access heterogeneous wireless and mobile networks. Due to the mobility of users and the heterogeneity of different radio access technologies, Quality of Service (QoS) still a critical issue for an integrated wireless and mobile network. In addition, QoS does not take in consideration the user’s perception and expectations, in other words Quality-of-Experience (QoE), of the service provided. So, understanding the impact of end-users’ behavior, increasingly attract the attention of the industrials and researchers community, contribute to design a successful Next Generation Networks.

The main objective of this International Workshop is to solicit research on QoS/QoE in Mobile and Wireless Networks of Next-Generation. We encourage submissions, including recent experimental, theoretical and numerical results, related to studies in such communication environment.

Authors of high quality papers will be published in special issue on QoS/QoE in the Next-Generation Wireless Networks of International Journal of Wireless Networks and Broadband Technologies (IJWNBT) which indexed in :

      • ACM Digital Library
      • Bacon's Media Directory
      • Cabell's Directories
      • DBLP
