INTRODUCTION
The wireless communication technologies have evolved quickly over the past years. As the explosive growth in broadband wireless networks, multimedia applications will dominate the future wireless communication society, resulting in non-trivial problems in terms of available capacity, reliability, quality-of-service, delay, and throughput.

To successfully support wireless multimedia applications, it is necessary to improve the state-of-the-art techniques (such as radio resource management, mobility, handoff, and location management, etc.) in the multimedia transmission over wireless networks in order to provide quality-of-service guarantees between the end-users and achieve a high quality-of-experience for end-users.

This workshop will address the important problems and challenges caused by the transmission of multimedia applications over wireless networks. The workshop aims to bring together computer scientists and engineers in different disciplines to share and exchange their experience and ideas and discuss state-of-the-art and in-progress research on all aspects of wireless networks and multimedia applications.

The topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to:
•Ultra-Wideband Networks
•Wireless Ad Hoc and Mesh Networks
•Wireless Personal Area Networks
•Wireless Local Area Networks
•Wireless Sensor Networks
•Wireless Metropolitan Area Networks
•Cellular Networks
•WiMAX
•Optical Wireless Access Networks
•Mobile Computing and Wireless Communications
•Future Wireless Networks and Protocols
•Multimedia Communications and Services
•Congestion and Admission Control
•Wireless MAC Protocols: Design and Analysis
•Quality of Service Provisioning
•Wireless Network Trust, Privacy and Security
•Software Defined Radio & Software Defined Networking
•Cross-Layer Design and Adaptation
•Radio Resource Management
•Mobility, Handoff and Location Management
•Performance Modeling and Evaluation
•Wireless and Mobile Network Architecture
