SWANSITY 2014 : Self-organizing Wireless Access Networks for Smart cITY


When Jun 30, 2014 - Jun 30, 2014
Where Singapore
Submission Deadline Apr 7, 2014
Notification Due Apr 30, 2014
Final Version Due May 12, 2014

Call For Papers

The SWANSITY workshop aims to solicit contributions on novel algorithms, methodological studies and experimentations on how to make a city-wide network infrastructure able to self-adapt to the dynamic requirements posed by the users and by the applications, to manage the complexity of heterogeneous devices and access technologies, and to guarantee robust, ubiquitous, and secure connectivity over the urban environments. At the same time, beside studying the issues of the city-wide infrastructure deployment, the workshop aims to investigate the potential provided by the end-users devices (e.g. smartphones, tablets) when augmented with self-organization capabilities, in order to turn them into active components of the smart-city network, instead of mere connection end-points. Such a potential includes the possibility to extend the network access in a pervasive way, to provide ubiquitous computing services, and to favor the emergence of “collectivity intelligence behaviors” through collaboration and direct communication among devices.

In line with such objectives, original contributions are solicited in topics of interest including, but not limited to, the following:
• Models of network components’ interactions on a smart-city
• Techniques and tools for modeling self-organizing wireless networks on large-scale urban environments
• Self-organizing wireless networks for pervasive urban access
• Self-organizing and self-repairing wireless networks for disaster recovery
• Dynamic resource allocation schemes for urban environments 
• Evolutionary design of wireless network components and devices
• Enabling technologies and algorithms for self-configuring wireless nodes
• Self-organizing femtocell and cognitive radio networks
• Cooperative Smart Objects supporting Wireless Networks Interoperability
• Decision making strategies for software defined radio devices
• Emerging collective intelligence in self-organizing wireless networks
• Network virtualization for heterogeneous wireless networks
• Bio-inspired models for self-organizing wireless networks
• Controlled mobility algorithms for self-placing wireless networks
• Self-organizing networks through Device-2-Device technology (D2D)
• Business model to promote users collaboration and resources sharing
• Security, Privacy and Trust issues in Self-organizing wireless networks
