The 9th International Workshop on Resource Allocation, Cooperation and Competition in Wireless Networks

In conjunction with the 11th Intl. Symposium on Modeling and Optimization in Mobile, Ad Hoc, and Wireless Networks WiOpt 2013
May 13-17, 2013, Tsukuba Science City, Japan

Future telecommunications networks are expected to provide very high data rates, seamless connections, at higher and often heterogeneous quality-of-service levels, in scenarios with ever increasing mobility. In order to meet these requirements, new generation wireless networks go beyond the classical paradigms of cellular networks and are based on complex interactions. In this scenario, efficient allocation of the available resources and/or cooperation, and/or competition play a strategic fundament role to increase and optimize communication performance of individual nodes or of the global network, and efficiently exploit the available frequency spectrum eventually admitting unlicensed users. This fueled a vibrant flurry of studies in cooperative communications, spectrum management (cognitive radio), and resource allocation. The investigations involve researches and technicians from the physical, to the networking layers and above and eventually promote joint design within different layers (cross-layer design). Analysis and design of the complex interactions in future communications networks requires contributions from a variety of disciplines, which span from information theory to statistical physics, game theory, optimization, non-commutative algebras and so forth.
The workshop promotes the applications of new methodologies in this field with the aim of providing the participants advanced and innovative tools able to catch the fundamental dynamics of complex interactions. It fosters the presentation of new cooperative protocols and new schemes for resource allocation, novel results in the investigation of the theoretical limits and fundamental tradeoffs between competition and cooperation. The applications can steam from any wireless scenario, from multicell networks to sensor and relay networks, cognitive radio or ad hoc network. In fact, object of the workshop is to provide the participant with a comprehensive, thorough, and unified vision of the resource allocation issue in complex multiuser and multiprovider networks regulated by cooperation and competition.

Original contributions in resource allocation and cooperation for wireless networks are solicited in, but not limited to, the following directions:
" Data dissemination in large-scale wireless networks
" Energy management in wireless networks
" Wireless online social networks
" Economics-inspired resource management and mechanism design
" Cooperation schemes for resource management in wireless networks
" Distributed scheduling and resource allocation in large-scale wireless networks
" Physical layer/MAC layer cooperation in large-scale wireless networks
" Fairness vs performance trade-offs
" Diversity/multiplexing trade-offs of cooperation protocols
" Effects of partial and incomplete state information in cooperative systems, and robust designs
" Relay selection, cooperative group optimization and resource allocation
" Practical issues in cooperation strategies for mobile ad-hoc and sensor networks.
