The fourth generation (4G) of wireless communications is expected to integrate a potentially large number of different heterogeneous wireless technologies in what could be considered a huge step forward towards universal wireless access and omnipresent computing through seamless mobility. Even though 4G standard is currently not defined, there are many current outlooks that delineate the vision of the new wireless technologies. Based on the emergent trends of mobile communication, 4G will have larger bandwidth, higher data rates, smoother and quicker handoff and will focus on guaranteeing faultless service and seamless handoff across a multitude of wireless networks. The key concept is integrating the 4G capabilities with all of the existing mobile technologies. Special maneuvers will be necessary amongst different access systems in terms of horizontal (intrasystem) and vertical (inter-system) handoff as well as seamless mobility, Quality of Service (QoS), dependability and security. In this workshop, we solicit high quality papers from leading researchers that present state-of-the-art research in heterogeneous wireless networks dealing with resource management techniques and QoS provisioning.
