Welcome to Q2SWinet 2016

The Q2SWinet 2016 symposium aims at serving as a meeting point and a forum for exchanging ideas, discussing solutions, and sharing experiences among researchers, professionals, and application developers, both from industry and academia. As with the previous seven editions of the Q2SWinet symposium series, the scope of this year's symposium will remain on general issues related to QoS and security in wireless and mobile networks networking and computing.

In recent years, wireless and mobile communication systems have become increasingly popular as an inexpensive and promising means for ubiquitous communications. In this scenario, the QoS provisioning and the management of network security have become crucial tasks to determine the success of future generation wireless mobile networks. This symposium calls for cutting-edge research achievements on the provisioning of QoS and Security in wireless and mobile networks. It also aims at increasing the synergy between academic and industry professionals working in this area.

Authors are encouraged to submit complete papers presenting new research related to theory or practice of all aspects of Quality of Service and Security issues in mobile and wireless systems. Topics of interest for ACM Q2SWinet 2016 include, but are not limited to:

- Security, privacy and trust in smart cities

- Security, privacy and trust in smart grid communications

 -Internet of things and smart cities/smart environments

- Security in Wireless MANETs, VANETs, Sensor, Mesh and PCS Networks

- Secure PHY, MAC and Routing Protocols

- Secure Cooperation-Based Systems and Services

- Intrusion Detection in Wireless Ad hoc and Sensor Networks

- Privacy, anonymity and authentication
