Call For Papers

The International PHYLOM 2010 Workshop on Mobilight 2010 (The 2nd International Conference on Mobile Lightweight Wireless Systems) offers an opportunity to gather research scientific works related to optimized design of energy-efficient wireless systems. A special attention is devoted to soft-computing based optimization methods such as heuristics and evolutionary algorithms, along with the main topics of interest of this Workshop.


The last decade has witnessed a ever-growing demand for radio spectrum resources. Both the increasing number of users and the diverse variety of demanded services have motivated the research community (both academic and industrial) to focus their research efforts on different techniques allowing for a more efficient use of the available resources in each particular scenario (e.g. from mobile phone communications to densely-deployed sensor networks). In the past, many of the studies in this trend have concentrated on simplicity-based solutions. Following this research area, the recently coined “green technology” concept aims at optimizing the energy consumption of communication devices by attempting to provide enhanced battery autonomy at a minimum cost, not only to the operators themselves, but also to the end users. Unfortunately, most of the proposed advances to date are far from practicality.
To overcome this lack of implementable communication schemes, huge research efforts are currently devoted to balance the trade-off between performance and energy efficiency, from dynamic allocation of available resources as a function of the network conditions/status to the design of efficient network topologies, encoding, modulation, detection techniques or, in general, any other complexity-aware data processing approaches attaining near-optimal performance. Particularly, soft computing approaches, such as bio-inspired algorithms have emerged in the communications realm as a means to efficiently solve theoretically-intractable optimization issues in communications. Such algorithmic methods become even more interesting by virtue of their adaptability to highly-dynamic constraints as those shown by mobile wireless networks.

With no limitations on the topics dealing with this respect, the Workshop "PHYLOM 2010" aims at providing an interdisciplinary and cross-stage framework for gathering researchers from different fields interested in optimization techniques, specially advocated for energy-efficient communications. Notwithstanding this topic openness, PHYLOM 2010 will specially emphasize on practical Soft Computing, bio-inspired, and meta-heuristic approaches for alleviating the complexity of mobile lightweight systems. Nevertheless, research contributions submitted to the workshop can be further oriented to the following topics of interest:
• CDMA multiple user detection.
• Synchronization methods.
• Joint Source/Channel Coding.
• Recent advances in joint sampling and compression algorithms (e.g. Compressed Sensing).
• Iterative (Turbo) decoding and equalization.
• Data processing.
• Energy-efficient network topologies.
• (Dynamic) resource allocation.
• Data fusion and modulation techniques.
• Cross-layer synergies among physical and upper (e.g. network) layers..
• Practical network coding schemes.
• Source-controlled modulation.
• Implementation issues.
• Genetic/heuristic/evolutionary methods for energy-constrained wireless networks.
• Soft Computing techniques in network topology problems.
• Artificial Intelligent methods in access control.

Any other topic strongly related to energy efficiency in communication networks is also welcome.
