Workshop: September 21, 2009


In recent years, some wireless technologies (e.g., WiFi, sensor
networks) have matured to the point of finding wide acceptance
in the real-world and leading to many new and interesting applications.
At the same time, several new networking and radio technologies (e.g.,
dynamic spectrum access, UWB) are emerging to address the
performance limitations of existing technologies and make wireless
networking more ubiquitous. Realistic evaluation of such diverse
set of technologies and their mutual interactions will play a major
role in identifying the key performance bottlenecks, thus shape
future advances in wireless technology. The importance of testbed-based
evaluation of wireless network protocols/applications as well as
characterization of real world aspects using traces from operational
networks is gaining wider recognition in the mobile and wireless
networking research community.

WiNTECH intends to bring together researchers working in the broad
area of experimental wireless networking. WiNTECH will serve as
a forum to share new ideas/experiences in all experimental aspects
of wireless networks and systems, and facilitate discussions of key
unresolved challenges in this area. We are seeking original,
previously unpublished papers addressing experimental wireless
networking issues. All submissions will be judged by their technical
merit and relevance to the workshop, based on a thorough review process
by the Technical Program Committee.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Design and evaluation of wireless testbeds, prototypes and platforms
- Experiences/lessons from recent testbed deployments
- Hybrid experimentation approaches combining use of multiple evaluation
- methodologies
- Integration of diverse and distributed testbed infrastructures
- Testbed management issues and monitoring support
- Wireless testbed case studies
- Experimental evaluation of applications and protocols, including the
impact of Cross-layer interactions
- Large-scale and heterogeneous wireless network evaluations
- Approaches for real-world evaluation of mobile networks
- Evaluation environments for sensor and satellite networks
- Techniques for improving reproducibility of real-world testing
- Implementation approaches to ease transition between different
evaluation methodologies
- New measurement methodologies and infrastructures
- Measurement and characterization (modeling) of real-world aspects of
- Networks such as usage patterns, traffic, mobility and channel
- Interference and spectrum usage measurements
- Validation of existing simulation models, and results across
different testbeds/evaluation methodologies
- Software tools in support of measurements, trace/data collection and

Apart from regular paper presentations, the workshop program will
include an interactive session with demos and posters.
We welcome demonstrations of novel wireless network testbed
capabilities and measurement results. The posters may describe
work in progress and offers an excellent opportunity for feedback
and discussions on early research.

DEMO COMPETITION: WINCOOL (aka the Next Big Thing in Wireless)

This year, we are challenging the community to show us their latest,
coolest, chair-rocking and mind-blowing innovation in an operational
demonstration. Go beyond the theoretical limitations and shed off
the numerous assumptions about wireless system and present an
prototype that has the potential to revolutionize wireless networking.
Innovations can be at any layer, from physical to application. However,
we particularly encourage innovations that span over multiple layers.
The innovations must have wireless networking as its key topic.
The demo must be presented live, i.e. a presentation of a demo
video, etc) only is not allowed. Also, we emphasize that the demo
contest is not a forum to display commercial products. The demo contest
will be judged by a panel from industry and academia based on the
merit and relevance to the workshop.


WiNTECH 2008 is seeking proposals for posters describing novel work in
wireless network testbeds, measurements and characterizations. The
areas of interest are the same as those listed in the technical call for

papers. The posters may describe work in progress and offers an
opportunity for feedback and discussions on early research.
All submissions will be reviewed by the technical program committee
and will be judged by their technical merit and relevance to workshop.
The extended abstract of the accepted posters will be published in the
workshop proceedings and will be available at the ACM digital library.


Paper submission instructions:

All regular paper submissions will be handled electronically via the
EDAS system ( and should
to the following requirements:
- A maximum of 8 (eight) 8.5"x11" pages (including figures, tables,
and references)
- The paper must be in two-column format, using 10-point size or
greater and reasonable margins
- the paper must be submitted in PDF format

Poster/Demo submission instructions:

Poster/Demo submissions will be handled by emailing the writeup to

- A maximum of TWO 8.5"x11" pages (including figures, tables, and
- The write-up must be in two-column format, using 10-point size or
greater and reasonable margins and must use PDF format
- For demos, a third page should be included that lists the
requirements for the demo at the workshop
venue if the demo is selected.
