Mobile Website, Application, and Security (MWAS) Mini-Symposium

We invite the submission of applied research papers to the Mobile Website, Application, and Security (MWAS) Mini-Symposium at the 13th Wireless Telecommunications Symposium, WTS 2016, which will be held April 15-17, 2015 in New York City, USA. For further information, visit

The Wireless Telecommunications Symposium brings together industry professionals and academics from companies, governmental agencies, and universities around the world to exchange information on advances in mobile communications and wireless networking technology, business, policy, applications and security. Past WTS participants have included Dr. Vinton Cerf, Dr. Robert Kahn, and Dr. Leonard Kleinrock, Internet pioneers; Martin Cooper, "Father of the Cell Phone"; Dr. Irwin Jacobs, Co-Founder and Chairman of QUALCOMM; and Mike Lazaridis, Founder and Vice-Chairman, Blackberry.

The theme for WTS 2016 will be "Wireless Communications: A Multidisciplinary Perspective" with a vision toward expanding its scope to include the application side of mobile computing. In particular, WTS 2016 will host professional workshops in the following three areas: (1) mobile-ready and responsive web design; (2) mobile applications development; and (3) mobile security and forensics. These workshops will offer hands-on demos on the technologies being used in creating today's secure mobile-ready websites and applications. Current issues in these three areas will also be discussed.

The theme for WTS 2016 will be "Wireless Communications: A Multidisciplinary Perspective". Planned highlights of WTS 2016 include executive presentations and keynote addresses; presentations of accepted academic and practitioner research papers; panel discussions; tutorials and workshops; a poster paper session; and a doctoral students' session. Accepted papers will be published in the main conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore. The proceedings also will be distributed at the Symposium via a CD. Awards will be given for the most outstanding paper presented and best graduate and undergraduate student papers presented. Some selected high quality papers from WTS 2016 will be considered for publication in the International Journal of Interdisciplinary Telecommunications & Networking, IGI Global publisher, pending their successful extension and an expedited review process.
