Call For Papers

The 8th ACM International Workshop on Wireless Network Testbeds, Experimental Evaluation and Characterization

In conjunction with ACM MobiCom 2013

Miami, Florida, September 30th, 2013

We witnessed an increasing demand for high-speed, reliable and ubiquitous mobile
wireless networks in recent years. Following this trend, challenging issues to
satisfy the growing number of wireless users can be foreseen. Doubtlessly, thorough
experimental analyses are of paramount importance to accurately identify the
limitations of current technologies and to motivate innovative ideas to solve them.
Moreover, realistic empirical evaluations of such a diverse set of solutions, and
their mutual interactions, will play a major role to demonstrate their efficiency
in everyday denser networks, thus shaping future advances in wireless technology.
Due to these, sharing experiences, methodologies and experimental results are
gaining wider recognition in the mobile and wireless research community.


WiNTECH aims at bringing together researchers working in the broad area of
experimental wireless networking. This workshop will serve as a forum to share new
ideas and experiences gathered across all experimental aspects of wireless networks
and systems, and facilitate discussions of key unresolved challenges in this area.
We are seeking original, previously unpublished papers empirically addressing key
issues and challenges in wireless networking. All submissions will be judged by
their technical merit and relevance to the workshop, based on a thorough review
process by the Technical Program Committee.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Design and evaluation of wireless testbeds, prototypes and platforms
- Experiences/lessons from recent testbed deployments
- Hybrid experimentation approaches combining use of multiple evaluation
- Integration of diverse and distributed testbed infrastructures
- Testbed management issues and monitoring support
- Wireless testbed case studies
- Experimental evaluation of applications and protocols, including the impact of
cross-layer interactions
- Large-scale and heterogeneous wireless network evaluations
- Approaches for real-world evaluation of mobile networks
- Measurement and evaluation on large-scale smartphone based deployments
- Studies on real-world white-space networks
- Evaluation environments for sensor and satellite networks
- Techniques for improving reproducibility of real-world testing
- Implementation approaches to ease transition between different evaluation
- New measurement methodologies and infrastructures
- Interference and spectrum usage measurements
- Techniques for improving reproducibility of real-world testing
- Measurement and characterization (modeling) of real-world aspects of wireless
networks such as usage patterns, traffic, mobility and channel characteristics
- Validation of existing simulation models, and results across different
testbeds/evaluation methodologies

All regular paper submissions will be handled electronically via the EasyChair
system and should conform to the following requirements: A maximum of 8 (eight)
8.5"x11" pages (including figures, tables, and references). The paper must be in
two-column format, using 10-point size or greater and reasonable margins and must
be submitted in PDF format.

Please submit papers by the May 18, 2013 deadline using the EasyChair site:
