Call for Papers

The International Conference on Wireless, Intelligent and Distributed Environment for COMmunication (WIDECOM 2020), May  06-08, 2020, Ryerson University, Canada.


With the vital role played by wireless networks in the current era of digital communication and the strong growth in information and computing power offered by computing clusters and information services over stationary networks, there is an increasing demand for a flexible and cheap infrastructure for collecting and monitoring real-world data nearly everywhere. This integration of wireless mobile systems and network computing raises new challenges with respect to the dependability of integrated applications and the intelligence-driven security threats against the platforms supporting these applications. This WIDECOM 2020  conference solicits papers addressing issues related to new dependability paradigms, design, and performance of dependable network computing and mobile systems, as well as issues related to the security of these systems.
