Title: Wireless Multi-Access Environments and Quality of Service Provisioning: Solutions and Application
A book edited by Gabriel-Miro Muntean and Ramona Trestian
Dublin City University, Ireland
To be published by IGI Global: http://www.igi-global.com/AuthorsEditors/AuthorEditorResources/CallForBookChapters/CallForChapterDetails.aspx?CallForContentId=7090bf5f-ef8f-479c-8dd6-5c1af4718ca0
One highly relevant topic in current and future wireless heterogeneous environment is the coexistence of multiple access technologies deployed by different operators. In this context, the aim is to keep the mobile user “always best connected” anywhere and anytime in a multi-technology multi-application multi-terminal multi-user environment.
The book will cover important aspects of the emerging technologies in the future wireless heterogeneous networks such as: network selection mechanisms, handover solutions and adaptive techniques. It identifies the research issues and challenges and presents a survey of the proposed solutions in the literature. It could be considered a link between the academia and industry. Academia could benefit by having a general view of the existing research issues and ideas on the mentioned topics, and on the other side, the industry could benefit by applying ideas or acknowledge issues in the real-world applications.
The Overall Objectives of the Book
The objective of the proposed book is to introduce the reader to the latest developments in heterogeneous wireless area which will lead to the creation of a multi-technology multi-application multi-terminal multi-user environment. The book will focus on presenting the current research progress in general in the area of heterogeneous wireless networks with special focus on three significant topics: Network Selection Mechanisms, Handover, and Adaptive Multimedia Solutions.
The prospective audience of this book will be on one side undergraduate students, postgraduate students, and researchers who are interested in the emerging area of mobile and wireless communications, with the main focus on the handover strategies, network selection mechanisms and adaptive multimedia solutions and on the other side industry people who are working in the mentioned areas.
Recommended topics include, but not limited to:
Ø Heterogeneous Wireless Networks Architectures
Ø Interoperability of the Wireless Systems
Ø Mobility Challenges and Management
Ø Network Selection Solutions
Ø Handover Strategies
Ø Handover Execution Mechanisms
Ø Network Layer Approaches
Ø Wireless-aware Transport Protocols
Ø Rich-media and Real-time Communications
Ø Adaptive Applications
Ø Quality-of Service Provisioning
Ø Cross-layer Optimization
Ø WLAN, WMAN, 3G, 4G and beyond
You are invited to submit on or before May 30, 2010, a 2-3 pages manuscript proposal clearly describing and explaining the topic of the proposed chapter. The proposal should include the chapter summary, table of content, and contact authors. Authors of accepted proposals will be notified by August 30, 2010 about the status of their proposals and sent chapter organisational guidelines. Full chapter are expected to be submitted by September 30, 2010. All submitted chapters will be reviewed on a double-blind review basis. Contributors may also be requested to serve as reviewers for this project. (www.eeng.dcu.ie/~ramona/IGIBook.html )
