IJMNDI addresses state-of-the-art computerisation for the deployment and operation of current and future wireless networks. Intelligent and automatic computer software has become the critical factor for obtaining high performance network solutions that meet the objectives of both the network subscriber and operator. Characteristically, high performance, innovative techniques are required to address computationally-intensive radio engineering planning problems while providing optimised solutions and knowledge which will enhance the deployment and operation of expensive wireless resources. This requires contributions from several disciplines.


 Topics covered include

  • Wide Area Planning Problems, e.g.:
    • Cellular planning for GSM, UMTS, WCDMA, cmda2000, BFWA, PMR, wifi, 802.11
    • Transmission infrastructure, site location, channel assignment/modelling
    • Frequency hop set design, international spectrum management, netted radar placement
    • Spectrum licensing, auctions/trading, subscriber service pricing, revenue generation
    • Application of codes, radio resource management/allocation
    • Bluetooth scatternet formation, point to point link topology, propagation modelling, ray tracing
    • Key performance indicators, surrogates,QoS measurement
    • Traffic modelling, subscriber location issues, billing, routing
  • Software Engineering Aspects, including:
    • Effective source code design, software system design, requirements analysis
    • Fast data structures, object oriented design, HCI, user interface development
    • High performance computing, parallel processing
    • Geographical information/graphics/visualisation/simulation environments, tool kits
    • Automation/intelligence methodologies

More on this journal...

IJMNDI's objective is to found, develop and promote a cutting edge arena for the emergent field of intelligent computerised wireless network design and management. The role and contribution of this research will influence economic, operational and policy issues. It aims to expand the frontiers of fundamental computational techniques and enhance prospects for effective high performance software solutions. IJMNDI seeks to foster international exchange of ideas and experiences among researchers, educators and professionals in the field, on a global scale. It also serves as a venue for articles evaluating the state of the art of computer applications in this area.


IJMNDI will be targeted toward professionals, researchers and educators in the interdisciplinary fields contributing to the development of methodologies and software systems for obtaining high performance wireless networks.


IJMNDI seeks to publish original and review papers, full length and short papers, reports on software systems and their applications, case studies concerning network design, conference reports and news. Special issues on high profile hot-topics are requested. Contributions will be by open submission, coordinated via a conference or by invitation. IJMNDI seeks to achieve rapid publication times, particularly for short papers.
