Scope and Overview

Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) have been accepted as a new communication paradigm that, by relaxing some restrictions of ad-hoc networking (e.g. mobility, radio capabilities), enables the provision of high quality services. Still, the design of WMNs involves handling complex interactions between the variables of the solution space, e.g., cost, channel planning, routing. Only from a proper understanding of these interactions it will be possible to enclose use-case scenarios for mesh networking, this way assessing if WMNs are a feasible alternative to more-traditional deployments.

This workshop focuses on the current state of the art and ongoing research challenges on wireless mesh networks, with special attention to carrier-grade service provision. It will provide a forum to discuss current ongoing challenges, namely: the definition of “carrier-gradeness” in a wireless environment and the ability to achieve it (in particular, as compared to current mobile architectures); the performance limits of
mesh technology, assessing if the costs of mesh deployments (roll out, management) are compensated by the service models provided; the architectures for mesh networks, including homogeneous and heterogeneous designs; the security challenges and solutions for mesh networks. To sum up, the workshop aims at creating a think tank of practitioners and researchers from academia and industry to point out the directions
for the success of wireless mesh technology

Topics at a Glance

The workshop solicits original and unpublished contributions on various aspects of wireless mesh networking, including (but not limited to):

* Architectures, protocols, and algorithms for wireless mesh networks
* Performance evaluation (analysis, simulation or experimental)
* Deployment of experimental testbeds
* Localization and mobility in wireless mesh networks
* Security, privacy, and trustworthiness
* Co-existence/Integration of wireless mesh networks with other networks
* Standardization efforts related to wireless mesh networks
* Wireless mesh networks configuration and management
* Wireless mesh networks measurements
* Service model and business case analysis

Submission and Publications

Prospective authors should submit a paper for review, the maximum paper length being 6 pages (in two-column format). Only original papers, not been published or submitted for
publication elsewhere, will be considered. Further information on submission guidelines is available at

Accepted papers will be available after the conference on IEEExplore and will be included in IEEE INFOCOM 2011 proceedings.
