Call for Papers
Workshop on Real-Time Wireless Networking for Industrial Applications
-) RealWiN 2012 (-
http://www.performance.rwth-aachen.de/realwin
April 16th 2012, Beijing, China
as part of CPS Week 2012

Submission Deadline: January 9th 2012


#### Scope: ##########

During the last 20 years the development of wireless networks has been driven mainly by the demand for more bandwidth. This demand has been necessitated by the human desire for information and communication. Hence, wireless networks have been designed to serve mainly Internet best-effort traffic as well as delay-sensitive voice and video applications. Besides this, we have also witnessed research into new network paradigms like Mobile Ad hoc Networks and Wireless Mesh Networks which serve the same types of traffic in general.

Recently, the vision of an Internet of Things has become more and more a reality. Wireless sensor networks and Machine-to-Machine networking connect resource-constrained and likely battery-powered devices such as sensors and actuators with each other and with control units. For example, recent years have witnessed the adoption of wireless sensor-actuator networks as a communication infrastructure for industrial applications such as process monitoring and control. Open industrial standards such as WirelessHART and IEEE 802.15.4e have shown promise through commercial products and system deployments in real-world industrial environments.However, industrial applications impose new challenges to wireless network design such as stringent requirements on reliability, real-time performance, latency of the communication, security, and networked control, even more stringent than time-critical best-effort applications like voice over IP. Despite the already high requirements, the desire is growing to use wireless communication in even more demanding industrial applications such as factory automation and motion control.

This workshop will provide an open forum for academic and industrial researchers to exchange ideas and experiences in this important area. The focus is on ’soft’ real time requirements as well as on ’hard’ real-time requirements potentially with very low latencies. The workshop cross-cuts the diverse areas associated with CPS Week including real-time systems (RTAS), wireless sensor networks (IPSN), control (HSCC), and the integration of them in cyber-physical systems (ICCPS). We are also soliciting contributions form industrial partners highlighting case studies, measurements, experiences from applications etc.
In particular, the following topics are of interest (not limiting other contributions in the considered direction):

Physical layer design
Medium access control and interference management
Real-time scheduling algorithms and analysis
Routing and transport for guaranteed delay networking
Theoretical bounds, performance models and evaluation
Prototypes/ testbeds and implementation aspects of real-time operation
Application scenarios and requirements
Challenges, vision and architecture for real-time wireless networks
Software stacks for hard real-time wireless networking
Fault-tolerance and redundancy issues
Control over wireless sensor-actuator networks
Control and wireless network co-design for cyber-physical systems
Case studies, measurements and experiences from industrial deployments

#### Dates: ##########

Paper submission deadline: January 9th, 2012

Notification: February 13th, 2012

Camera-Ready Version: February 29th, 2012


#### Submissions, Review Process and Publication: ##########

We solicit novel, unpublished papers on all technical areas as described above.

Each submitted paper has a strict page length of eight, double-column, single-spaced pages following the IEEE conference style. Papers should be submitted as PDF via EasyChair: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=realwin2012

Papers will be reviewed based on novelty, quality and scope. The review process contains three reviews per paper plus some internal TPC discussion. Final decisions will be announced afterwards via email.

Papers are likely to appear on IEEExplore (currently under negotiation).
