The WSEAS Conferences of July have recently taken place in A.I.Cuza University, Iasi, Romania organized by the A.I. Cuza University (the oldest University of Romania), the WSEAS and the IAASAT. The meetings were chaired by important personalities. The conferences opened with Greetings from Prof. Nicu Garriluta, dean of the Faculty of Philosophy and the Lecturer of Mathematics Faculty Dr. Razvan Raducanu and Prof. Nikos Mastorakis from the Technical University of Sofia and WSEAS
Mr. Dean, Prof. Nicu Garriluta pointed out the promotion of the A.I.Cuza University through this international event. Many other Plenary Speakers of the event, all involved in WSEAS activities for many years gave short greetings underlining the role of the WSEAS as a network of excellence and as an important academic tool of knowledge transfer.
Professor Mastorakis repeated the importance of the Journals launched by WSEAS and invited the authors to submit their original papers to WSEAS Transactions that are published in hard-copy and are the unique journals having the PDF of the papers open without charging with fees neither readers nor the authors.
Lecturer Dr. Razvan Raducanu also pointed out that
the WSEAS conference papers must have DOI numbers. Nikos Mastorakis, as WSEAS
representative, promised to transfer the request to the President of WSEAS
(Prof. Charles Long) and to the Administration of the society.
The conference offered the delegates ample opportunity for interaction through a series of social functions and during dinner and coffee breaks. The conference dinner took place in the TRAIAN HOTEL. A great variety of many different courses, desserts and unlimited white and red wine with local and international music left an unforgettable experience to WSEAS and IAASAT participants. The occasion was most enjoyable.

Abstract: In fourth generation 4G system concept, the user has freedom and flexibility to select any desired service with reasonable quality of service QoS and affordable price, any time, anywhere.There are many attractive features for 4G which ensure a very high data rate, global roaming, incorporating the mobile world into the Internet Protocol IP-based core network, establishing an efficient billing system and perfect handoff mechanisms. Improvements over the third generation 3G include enhanced multimedia, smooth streaming video, universal access and portability across all types of devices. Migrating current systems to 4G presents enormous challenges. Current systems must be implemented with a view to facilitate a seamless integration into 4G infrastructure. Today 4G is a convergence platform providing clear advantages in terms of coverage bandwidth and power consumption. It offers a variety of new heterogeneous services. All these characteristics are supported by multimode/reconfigurable devices and implementation of interworking ones. 4G mobile communication networks are expected to provide all IP-based services for heterogeneous wireless access technologies, assisted by mobile IP to provide seamless Internet access for mobile users.Methodologies for QoS and security support in 4G networks integrate signaling with authentication, authorization and accounting AAA services to guarantee the user applications, QoS requirements and achieve efficient AAA. An integrated service and resource management approach is based on the cooperative association among QoS brakers,AAA, and charging systems. Seamless vertical handover VHO is an important function of beyond 3G systems. Concept transfer can help support seamless VHO, while maintaining the raquired security level. This presentation is organized as follows. After the introduction showing mobile system generation together with short history of mobile technologies,including various existing and emerging wireless technologies, the next section deals with converging of high speed Inernet and mobility as a major drivers of future wireless. Design objectives are also presented. The second part describes network selection with most appropriate selection criteria (service type, available resources, user content ). Then, quality of service providing guarantees in 4G networks is emphasized. This is one of the most difficult problems that are to be solved, when it comes to IP mobility. Mobile IPv6 have been proposed to reduce the handover lattency and the number of lost packets. Several approaches are opened for consideration like: security, convergence of mobile communications and broadcasting , as well as convergence benefits. Reconfigurable technology together with applications including multiple operators and billing system conclude further trends in the area of 4G mobile systems.

WSEAS Journals: The WSEAS Journals are entirely independent from the WSEAS Conferences, since they are currently candidates in ISI Web of Knowledge (all the WSEAS Conferences and Books have been already in ISI Web of Knowledge). Authors can send (upload) their papers to WSEAS Transactions regardless of whether they have attended a WSEAS conference or not. Also the WSEAS Transactions are the only open access journals in the world where the Authors do not pay any kind of registration fees or publication fees or "donation" (i.e. the full PDF files of the papers are permanantly open for everybody, without any restrictions, while the authors are not charged with any kind of fees). The Editors-in-Chief, being assisted by the members of the Editorial Boards, are the absolute decision makers for the acceptance or not of the submitted papers. WSEAS simply prints out the papers in hard copies & on the web.
