Call For Papers

Workshop on Network Calculus (WoNeCa-2012)

Date and Location
March 19-21, 2012, co-located with MMB/DFT 2012 (
@ University of Kaiserslautern, Germany

The network calculus has established as a versatile methodology
for the queueing analysis of resource sharing based systems. Its
prospect is that it can deal with problems that are fundamentally
hard for alternative methodologies, based on the fact that it
works with bounds rather than striving for exact solutions. The
high modelling power of the network calculus has been transposed
into several important applications for network engineering
problems, traditionally in the Internet’s Quality of Service
proposals IntServ and DiffServ, and more recently in diverse
environments such as wireless sensor networks, switched Ethernets,
or Systems-on-Chip.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers with an
interest in the theory of network calculus as well as those who
want to apply existing results in new applications. The workshop
will serve to promote the network calculus theory to researchers
with an interest in applied queueing models for data communication.

The topics of this workshop are related to fundamental aspects as
well as applications of network calculus. The following list of
topics is non-excluding:

• Deterministic and stochastic network calculus, e.g.,
– traffic and service models
– general topologies
– numerical tightness
• Feedback systems, e.g.,
– TCP network calculus
– window flow control
– retransmission-based systems
• Loss systems, e.g.,
– bounded queues
– wireless links
• Aggregate multiplexing, e.g.,
– optimization-based approaches
– stochastic case
• Data transformation, e.g.,
– end-to-end analysis
– in-network processing
– network coding
• Relation to other theories, e.g.,
– queueing theory
– discrete event dynamic systems
• Algebraic methods
– event graphs
– linear systems
• New applications, e.g.,
– real-time calculus
– avionic networks
– mission-critical networks
– the power grid
– wireless sensor networks
• Tool support, e.g.,
– numerical problems
– numerical approximations
– implementation experience

Contribution format
WoNeCa-2012 encourages the submission of either long papers or
extended abstracts, describing original work on theoretical
aspects and applications of the network calculus. Authors should
submit a PDF paper version, which should not exceed 15 pages for
long papers and 2 pages for extended abstracts. All the
submissions must adhere to the LNCS format, and should be sent
by e-mail to

All accepted long paper contributions will appear in the
conference proceedings, whereas the accepted extended abstracts
will appear in a technical report of the University of
Kaiserslautern. Authors of the extended abstracts retain the
copyright of their work.
