SNOW 2011 : The Second Nordic Workshop on System and Network Optimization for Wireless
Call For Papers
The Second Nordic Workshop on System and Network Optimization for Wireless (SNOW) aims at bringing together Researchers and Students from the Academia working in wireless networking, primarily in the Nordic region.
This year, the Nordic SNOW Workshop aims to have a special focus on broadband cellular access (HSPA, LTE/LTE-A, etc) and emerging wireless networking paradigms such as collaborative and heterogeneous networking. We further welcome presentations within a broad range of wireless networking cross-layer optimization, from fundamental communication performance analysis to considerations for multimedia QoS.
Our goal is to have a single track meeting with lively scientific discussions and exchange of views, and to accommodate a wide variety of backgrounds and research attitudes. The program will be organized in such a way to promote networking activities between the participants, including daily social outdoors activities like skiing.
We therefore invite for review submissions of up to 1-page abstracts of technical presentations targeting, but not limited to the following topics:
- Asymptotic system properties (capacity, connectivity, coverage, delay)
- Cellular systems, 3G/4G, LTE-advanced, WMAN, WRAN, and other emerging broadband wireless networks
- Inter-networking and integration of wireless heterogeneous and multi-tier networks
- Performance engineering in HSPA, WLAN, MESH, LTE, and other cellular or multitier technologies
- Wireless network planning, capacity analysis, and topology control
- Cognitive Radios and cooperative/opportunistic communications
- Self-organizing wireless networks
- Game theoretic models, pricing and incentives
- Resource management, mobility management, and admission control
- Energy efficiency and green communications
- Delay tolerant wireless networks
- Scalability and manageability of network architectures
- Automated planning and resource allocation in 3G HSPA (and beyond) networks
Abstracts must be submitted electronically through the Nordic SNOW workshop web page: http://snow.itn.liu.se

Registration and Costs:
Registration of accepted presenters and workshop attendants will be done online through the workshop webpage. No registration fee will be charged. Participants will have to support their own lodging and transportation costs.
Venue and transportation:
The 2nd Nordic SNOW workshop will take place at the Swedish ski resort of Stöten in Sälen. Stöten has direct access to 27 individual slopes, served by 15 ski lifts and provides snow guarantee up to the last week of April: http://www.stoten.se/
A limited number of single and double rooms have been block booked (in a package of 4 nights from 23 to 27 of March) at the Stöten Hotel and at 2- bedroom apartments in Stöten Mitt.
We strongly urge the participants to prefer the apartments in line with the networking spirit of the workshop.
