Call For Papers

Welcome to the second edition of the "U-NET: User-provided Networking" workshop, co-located with IEEE GLOBECOM 2010!

Wireless technologies are heavily being used as last-hop of fixed networks, as well as starting to be applied to the backhaul. Such flexibility, inherent to wireless technologies, is giving rise to new types of networks which are spread by means of the end-user. Their potential is not explored in terms of new Internet horizons, potential business opportunities, nor in terms of social interaction: user-centric wireless networking models, where cooperation is the key topic, can contribute to the intensification of the phenomenon that is today the core of the so-called Web2.0.

The second edition of the U-NET workshop aims at promoting a debate on opportunities and challenges related with user-provided networks, both in technical and in business terms. Such debate is highly relevant as of today since user-provided networking seems to have the potential to provide a paradigm shift in Internet communication models, given that: i) such novel functionality allows local-loop networks to operate in a completely autonomic way; ii) the end-user becomes a provider of Internet services (e.g. connectivity) based upon cooperation incentives or rewards, as well as based upon his/her own mobility patterns and social behavior.

The workshop program will include presentations of peer-reviewed papers and a discussion panel with guests from industry and academia. We envision U-NET as a forum aiming to ignite a debate concerning technical challenges and impact (negatively or positively) that user-provided networking may have on Internet communication models.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* Modeling user incentives
* Impact on Internet design
* UPN challenges and opportunities for access providers
* Trust models, incentives to share broadband access
* Social mobility modelling
* User-centric mobility management
* Self-organization
* Wireless cooperation

Important Dates

* Full Paper Submission Deadline: July 2nd 2010
* Acceptance Notification: August 13th 2010
* Camera-Ready Submission: August 31st 2010
* Workshop Date: December 6th 2010
