Call For Papers

WiNTECH 2012
The Seventh ACM International Workshop on Wireless Network Testbeds, Experimental evaluation and Characterization
In conjunction with MobiCom 2012

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 a diverse set of technologies and their mutual interactions will play a major role in identifying the key performance bottlenecks, thus shaping 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. This workshop intends to bring together researchers working in the broad area of experimental wireless networking. This workshop 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 We are seeking original, previously unpublished papers addressing experimental wireless networking issues.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.

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.

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
•Measurement and evaluation on large-scale smartphone based deployments
•Studies on real-world white-space 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 wireless
networks such as usage patterns, traffic, mobility and channel characteristics
•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 management
