Welcome to WoNGeN 2008 website. Continuing the tradition of extremely successful events for 2005 and 2006, this year again the third Workshop on Next Generation Wireless Networks 2008 is planned in conjunction with HiPC 2008. The theme chosen this year includes one of the most important topics of today: Next Generation Internet including GENI.

Today's Internet faces several challenges including its lack of scalability as well as inability to support emerging applications. In addition, lack of support for multimedia applications in a way that can handle the hugely popular voice and video traffic over IP, also acts as an important limitation.

It is expected that the Internet will become the most important infrastructure for business, communication, health, education, as well as for governance. The existing wired or wireless forms of Internet does not provide any answers to the  potential questions that the future world seeks from the Internet.

  Global Environment for Network Innovations (GENI) is an NSF sponsored program that is widely tipped to become a form of future Internet. However, GENI is still in its early infancy and there is a critical need for solutions to many problems that GENI or similar next generation Internet architectures face. 

Toward this direction, WoNGeN 2008 aims to provide a forum for researchers, practitioners, and students to submit their original unpublished research solutions in order to seek wider audience.
