Call For Papers

Full-day workshop, collocated with IEEE GLOBECOM 2012, December 2012,


Internet access is undergoing a fundamental change. Users expect to access through different wireless devices and access technologies a diverse range of services and applications anytime, anywhere. Driven by a new generation of devices (smart phone, netbook, etc.), capacity demand increases faster than spectral efficiency improvement, in particular at hot spots/areas. However, the huge increase in demand cannot easily be met by current radio access systems. Hence, there is a need for more powerful, more efficient, higher speed, lower cost radio technologies and architectures for Broadband Wireless Access (BWA).

There is significant effort within the community to develop more advanced BWA technologies - activities span the wireless domain, ranging from more advanced antenna technologies and cooperative relays, to mesh networking systems and many more: future networks will likely employ some mix of these different mechanisms. New BWA standards are now available, such as LTE-A and IEEE 802.16m. The 8th BWA full day workshop will continue the success of the previous editions, providing a forum for the exchange and discussion of new research results and practical experiences working with innovative technologies in the BWA domain. This full day workshop will be interested to a broad range of topics including, but not limited to, those listed below.

- Incumbent and Future BWA Technologies, UMTS, HSPA, LTE, LTE-A, 802.16x
- Self-Configuring and Self-Optimizing Networks
- Repeater, Mesh, Relay, Femto and Pico Base Station based Solutions Vehicular Networks
- Radio Resource Management, Admission Control, Power Control and Scheduling
- QoS and QoE in Mobile and BWA Networks
- Cross-Layer Optimization Concepts and Experimental Evaluation
- Multi-Antenna Technologies, Beamforming, Antenna Selection, Rank Adaptation, etc.
- Single and Multiuser MIMO Techniques
- Cooperative and Collaborative Networking, Network MIMO
- Interference Mitigation, Cancellation, Coordination and Alignment
- Channel Estimation Techniques
- Capacity Planning and Traffic Engineering
- Traffic, Mobility and Channel Models
- Design and Evaluation of Testbeds and Field Trials
- Experiences/Lessons from Recent Deployments
- Interoperability Aspects (Fixed/Mobile LANs/MANs, WANs)
- Micro and Macro Mobility Management
- Multicarrier Operation and Carrier Aggregation
- Spectrum Management, Regulatory Issues
- Cognitive and Dynamic Spectrum Management Techniques
- Broadcasting and Multicasting in BWA Networks
- Green Networking and Energy Efficient Algorithms
- Network Coding and its Applications in Wireless Systems
