Papers selected for poster presentation will be included in IEEE digital library.

Main topics:
Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
- Modeling, simulation and key performance indicators for femtocell networks
- Self-configuration, self-optimization and self-healing
- Restricted access, open-access, and restricted access
- Coexistence between macrocell and femtocell networks
- Interference analysis, avoidance, and mitigation
- Time synchronization
- Cognitive femtocell networks
- Cooperative femtocell networks
- Power saving mechanisms
- Back-hauling issues
