When Jun 27, 2009 - Jun 27, 2009
Where Seoul (Korea)
Submission Deadline Mar 1, 2009

Call For Papers

Future generation wireless networks go beyond the classical paradigms of cellular networks and are based on complex interactions. In this scenario, efficient allocation of the available resources and/or cooperation, and/or competition play a strategic fundament role to increase and optimize communication performance of individual
nodes or of the global network, and efficiently exploit the available frequency spectrum eventually admitting unlicensed users. This fuelled a vibrant flurry of studies in cooperative communications, spectrum management (cognitive radio), and resource allocation. The investigations involve researchers and technicians from the physical, to the networking layers and above and eventually promote joint design within different layers (cross-layer design). Analysis and design of the complex interactions in future communications networks requires contributions from a variety of disciplines, which span from information theory to statistical physics, game theory, optimization, non-commutative algebras and so forth.

The workshop promotes the applications of new methodologies in this field with the aim of providing the participants advanced and innovative tools able to catch the
fundamental dynamics of complex interactions. It fosters the presentation of new cooperative protocols and new schemes for resource allocation, novel results in the investigation of the theoretical limits and fundamental tradeoffs between competition
and cooperation. The applications can steam from any wireless scenario, from multicell networks to sensor and relay networks, cognitive radio or ad hoc network. In fact, object of the workshop is to provide the participant with a comprehensive, thorough, and
unified vision of the resource allocation issue in complex multiuser and multiprovider networks regulated by cooperation and competition.
