MACOM 2015 : 8th International Workshop on Multiple Access Communications
Conference Series : Multiple Access Communications
Call For Papers
In 1961, Claude Shannon established the foundation for the discipline now known as "multi-user information theory" in his pioneering paper "Two-way Communication Channels", and later Norman Abramson published his paper "The Aloha System - Another Alternative for Computer Communications" in 1970 which introduced the concept of multiple access using a shared common channel. Thereafter for more than 40 years of study, numerous elegant theories and algorithms have been developed for multiple access techniques.
The aim of this workshop is to discuss both multi-user communications theory and multiple access techniques in areas related to PHY and MAC layer protocols - and their interactions - for contemporary networks. We intend to provide the experts from both the academic institutes and industry with an opportunity to present their state-of-the-art results and exchange the ideas on multiple access techniques and related areas:
* PHY-layer multiple access techniques.
* Link-layer MAC access protocols.
* PHY/MAC cross-layer techniques.
* Modeling, simulation and analysis techniques.
The MACOM 2015 event has special interest to address the new paradigms and theoretical foundations for next-generation wireless communication systems. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Queueing networks of shared access communication systems.
* Game-theoretic queueing models for non-cooperative access on shared channels.
* Control of queueing models for multiple access communications.
* Green queueing models to assess energy/performance tradeoffs.
* Information-theoretic security.
* Network information theory.
* Multi-user information theory.
* Multi-terminal information theory.
* Smart, adaptive and self-configurable MAC/PHY protocols.
* Cooperative & collaborative MAC/PHY protocols.
* MAC/PHY protocols for multi-hop and relay-based networks.
* Cognitive radio networks, software radio, dynamic spectrum access and channel bonding techniques.
* MAC/PHY protocols supporting MIMO, spatial multiplexing and transmit diversity techniques.
* Energy-aware MAC/PHY protocols.
* Scheduling and radio resource management, including inter and intra network coexistence techniques.
* MAC/PHY solutions for M2M-type communications in Broadband Wireless Networks.
