WLN 2009 : The 9th IEEE International Workshop on Wireless Local Networks
Call For Papers
9th IEEE International Workshop on Wireless Local Networks 2009
held in conjunction with
The 34th IEEE Conference on Local Computer Networks (LCN)
20-23 October, 2009, Zurich, Switzerland
"Global Sustainability through Local Functionalities"
|| Scope ||
Wireless Local Networks (WLNs) play a major role in today’s
world. From providing rich connectivity to realizing sensory and
actuary applications, WLNs serve a wide range of applications.
In its 9th year, the WLN workshop would like to focus on how such
networks can be made to be energy efficient and cost effective,
while maintaining high levels of service delivery quality. It is
hence our aim to focus on both design and implementation aspects
in networks that are sustainable, or that can be utilized to in
making sustainable system. At the same time, we will maintain our
open call in topics relevant to WLNs.
With this spirit, we are soliciting works describing both
theoretical and practical research endeavors. We also encourage
visionary and experimental descriptions. Short reports on work-
in-progress and demos will also be accommodated.
|| Topics ||
The following is a non-exclusive list of topics of interest:
* Design and deployment guidelines.
* Implementation and testbed issues.
* Network management architectures.
* Protocol design, including cross-layer and opportunistic approaches.
* Wireless multihop networks, including mesh, ad hoc and sensor networks.
* Wireless relay, including fixed and mobile elements.
* Integration and coexistence issues.
* Mobility management in both homogeneous and heterogeneous settings.
* Resource management functionalities (CAC, reservation, scheduling, etc.)
* Cognitive radios and dynamic spectrum networks.
* Performance evaluation, including analytical, simulation and testbed approaches.
