HetsNets 2012 : Future Heterogeneous Network 2012
Call For Papers
In the last decade, telecommunication has experienced a tremendous success causing proliferation of new applications which have increased the demand for both ubiquitous heterogeneous broadband mobile wireless communications and, increased users’ and networks’ load. Deployment heterogeneity in the network is seen as one of the most promising solutions to support the increasing data traffic demand and meet the requirements imposed for the fourth generation of mobile networks. Nevertheless, future deployments of heterogeneous cellular networks, which support macro, picos, relays, femtos, and atto cells coexisting on the same spectrum in the same geographical area , lead s to new technical challenges never faced before. To address these issues, Industry and academia are working on the development of new technologies and cellular standards.
The workshop, co-located with the 11th International Conferences on Networking 2012 is organized thanks to the joint efforts and collaboration of the FP7 European research projects BeFEMTO and FREEDOM, both conducting edge research on femto cells and future heterogeneous networks related technologies. The main objective is to offer an opportunity to academic and industrial researchers for spreading and sharing results and understanding in order to make communications networks more efficient than they are today.
The accepted papers will appear in the workshop proceedings, published by Springer-Verlag, in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.
Specific topics of interests include (but are not limited to) the following:
PHY/MAC layer enhancement techniques
Energy efficient algorithms and green wireless for heterogeneous networks
Cooperative and heterogeneous networks
Channel and interference models
Resource allocation techniques
Limited feedback techniques including channel state and network state feedback
Self organizing networks, game theoretic methods, and reinforcement learning
Protocols and protocol extensions to enable energy efficient networks
Network load balance and smart information storage in distributed networks
Cognitive, cooperative and reconfigurable networks
Efficient management of terminal equipment
heterogeneous future mobile networks
Interference-aware radio planning
Low electro magnetic exposure
Regulatory aspects (e.g., co-existence, new spectrum, lawful interception) and business cases
