Welcome to WINCOM'19

The international conference on wireless networks and mobile communications (WINCOM) is a flagship conference of MobiTic association. The 7th edition will be held in the imperial city and Scientific capital of Morocco, Fez, on October 29-November 01, 2019.

WINCOM'19 aims at examining the various challenges in the areas of wireless networks & mobile communications. The conference will provide a forum for exchanging ideas, discussing solutions, and sharing experiences among researchers and professionals from both academia and industry interested in wireless networks and mobile communications.

After the success of the six previous editions (Fez’2013, Rabat’2014, Marrakech’2015, Fez’2016, Rabat’2017, Marrakech’2018), WINCOM '19 comes back in Fez with the aim of becoming a ranked international IT conference. Thus, the main objectives of WINCOM are:
