Wireless & Mobile technologies represent a rapidly emerging area of development and importance for providing ubiquitous access to the network for all end users. The Wireless & Mobile computing domain emerges from the integration among personal computing, networks, communication technologies, cellular technology and the Internet Technology. Many modern applications are emerging in the area of mobile ad hoc networks and sensor networks. This special issue is intended to cover contributions in both the design and analysis in the context of mobile, wireless, ad-hoc, and sensor networks. The special issue will additionally select high quality papers from The First International Workshop on Wireless & Mobile Networks (WiMo-2009) to be held in Australia, July 2009.
