The International conference on Personal Wireless Communications (PWC 2007) was the twelfth conference of its series aimed at stimulating technical exchange between researchers, practitioners and students interested in mobile computing and wireless networks.

Wireless communication faces dramatic changes. The wireless networks are expanding rapidly in subscribers, capability, coverage, and applications, and costs continue to decrease. Mobile devices are becoming ubiquitous with greatly expanded computing power and memory, improved displays, and wireless logical and personal area connectivity. The PWC 2007 program covered a variety of research topics that are of current interest, including Ad-Hoc Networks, WiMAX, Heterogeneous Networks, Wireless Networking, QoS and Security, Sensor Networks, Multicast and Signal processing.
