Call For Papers

CWN 2018 will take place at Limassol, Cyprus, on October 15, 2018, collocated with the 14th International Conference on Wireless and Mobile Computing, Networking and Communications (WiMob 2018).

With the rapid proliferation of wireless devices and services, the mobile Internet has experienced exponential growth in recent years, which poses potential challenges for mobile operators, especially in terms of quality of service provisioning. Cooperation in wireless network emerged as a promising strategy to improve the overall performance by resource sharing, increasing data rates and network throughput. Furthermore, cooperation has the potential to increase energy efficiency, network coverage and reliability.

The aim of this workshop is to provide a space for researchers and technologists to present new ideas and contributions in cooperative wireless networks, a key element for the advance of the Future Internet. The concept of cooperation can be applied to a wide scope of technologies, systems and applications, in order to achieve an efficient use of the spectrum (cognitive radio), extended network coverage (cooperative diversity, multi-hop relaying), improved performance and reliability (network coding, cross-layer protocols) and user safety (vehicular networks, emergency networks), among other aspects.

The organizers of this workshop invite prospective authors to submit high-quality technical papers addressing, but not limited to, the following topics of interest:

Dynamic resource allocation in wireless cooperative networks
Cross-layer management and protocols for cooperative networks
Cross-layer design and optimization for cooperative networks
Control and management in cooperative networks
Performance analysis in cooperative networks
Cooperative communications: multi-hop and D2D
Cooperative diversity
Information theory aspects of cooperation
Power management in wireless cooperative networks
Business models for cooperative networks
Multimedia transmission in cooperative networks
Cooperation in wireless nano-communications
Cooperation in 5G networks
Cooperation in Software Defined Networks aimed to wireless communications
Cooperation in Wireless Sensor Networks
Cooperation in Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN)
Cooperation in Vehicular Wireless Networks
Cooperation in Mobile Clouds
Cooperative networking in User Provided Networks
Cooperation in networks with Network Function Virtualization
Cooperation in the Internet of Things
Security and Privacy in Cooperative Wireless Networks
Applications and services over cooperative networks
Test-beds, strategies and experimentation on cooperative networks


Submission Deadline: August 10, 2018
Notification of Acceptance: August 25, 2018
Camera Ready: September 1, 2018
