WNC3 2014 : 2014 WNC3 International Workshop on Wireless Networks: Communication, Cooperation and Competition
Call For Papers
The 2014 and 10th edition of the WNC3 workshop takes place in conjunction with the 12th Intl. Symposium on Modeling and Optimization in Mobile, Ad Hoc, and Wireless Networks (WiOpt 2014), May 12-16 2014, Hammamet, Tunisia.
Scope of the workshop
Given the growing trend of current multimedia content, future wireless communication networks are expected to be adaptive, to provide increasingly high quality-of-service and seamless connections in dynamic scenarios with ever increasing mobility. Distributed efficient resource management and available spectrum exploitation, cooperation and competition paradigms play a fundamental role towards designing flexible wireless networks capable to offer optimal communication performance from both the individual user and the global network perspective.
The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers and engineers in an effort to identify and discuss the major challenges related to the design and analysis of the complex interactions in distributed multi-user and multi-provider wireless networks regulated by cooperation and/or competition. Submission of original contributions making use of various analytical tools spanning from information theory to statistical physics, queuing theory, non-commutative algebras and so forth with an emphasis on distributed optimization, game theory, statistical learning, dynamical systems and control theory is highly encouraged. The applications can stem from any wireless scenario, from multi-tier heterogeneous and multi-cellular networks to sensor and relay networks, HARQ retransmission networks, cognitive radio, ad hoc networks and even communications for smart grids.
For other general ressource allocation related issues in wireless networks see RAWNET 2014 workshop which is also organized in conjunction with WiOpt 2014.
