Call For Papers



2nd Workshop on Multihop Wireless Network Testbeds and Experiments
in conjunction with
IWCMC 2012

August 27, 2012, Cyprus



This workshop, held in conjunction with the International Wireless
Communications and Mobile Computing Conference (,
August 27-31, 2012 in Cyprus intends to bring together researchers working
in the broad area of experimental multihop wireless networking such as MANETs,
WSN, VANETs, Wireless Mesh Networks, etc. While many conferences and workshops
provide a venue to present and discuss protocols or system architectures in
this space, most research work is typically done based on analytical models
and/or extensive simulations. The focus of this workshop is to serve as a forum
to share new ideas/experiences in all experimental aspects of multihop wireless
networks and systems, and facilitate discussions of key unresolved challenges
in this area. The workshop values results and insights obtained from working
implementations more highly than those obtained solely from simulations, but
papers explicitly comparing tested results and simulation results are highly
solicited. Submitted papers should be original and previously unpublished.

The list of topics includes, but is not limited to:
• Design & evaluation of wireless testbeds, prototypes and platforms
• Validation of existing simulation models, and results across different
testbeds/evaluation methodologies
• Experiences/lessons from recent testbed deployments
• Wireless testbed case studies
• Industrial application and integrated innovation
• The use of multihop wireless testbeds in teaching and research
• Integration of diverse and distributed testbed infrastructures, testbed
• Testbed management issues and monitoring support
• Configurable hardware/software platforms for testbeds
• Experimental evaluation of applications and protocols
• Techniques for improving reproducibility of real-world testing
• Integrated tools/toolkits to ease transition between simulation and
• New measurement methodologies and infrastructures
• Measurement and characterization (modeling) of real-world aspects of
multihop wireless networks such as usage patterns, traffic, mobility
and channel characteristics
• Innovative measurements methodologies & tools
• Testbed tools for interoperability, benchmarking and traffic measurements

Workshop Co-Chairs:

Thomas Kunz, Carleton University
Marc St-Hilaire, Carleton University

Submission Guidelines:

Authors are invited to submit original papers of up to 6 pages including
figures, tables, and references, in PDF format. Submission implies that at
least one of the authors will register and present the paper at the conference.
Electronic submission is accepted through the EDAS. Prospective authors are
invited to submit original technical papers—up to 6 pages of length, using the
EDAS link: for possible publication in
the IWCMC 2012 Conference Proceedings, which will be included in IEEE Xplore.
Selected papers will be further considered for possible publication in special
issues in the following Journals:

1. Wiley Journal of Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing (WCMC)
2. The International Journal of Sensor Networks (IJSNet)
3. The International Journal of Autonomous and Adaptive Communications Systems
4. KSII Transactions on Internet and Information Systems
5. Peer-to-Peer Networking & Applications

There will also be best paper awards, one best symposium award, and one best
Workshop award.

Important Dates:

Paper submission deadline: December 15, 2011
Paper acceptance notification: March 25, 2012
Camera-ready paper submissions: April 30, 2012
Author registration deadline: April 30, 2012
