SpaSWiN 2006

Second Workshop on Spatial Stochastic Models for Wireless Networks
Boston, Massachusetts
Held in conjunction with WiOpt 2006

Call for Papers

Spatial distributions of senders, receivers and relaying devices are an essential feature of wireless networks, whose models need therefore to borrow methods and tools from stochastic geometry and random graph theory. The art of modeling wireless networks is strongly multi-disciplinary, combining random graphs and spatial processes with information theory, combinatorics, game theory, performance analysis and network protocols. SpaSWiN is the first workshop specifically devoted the use of spatial stochastic models for wireless communications. Building on the success of the first venue SpaSWiN'05 held in Riva del Garda, Italy, in April 2005, the goal of SpaSWiN'06 is to bring together researchers from the various disciplines involved in spatial models of wireless communications.


We are soliciting abstracts that report on recent advances on spatial models of wireless networks. Topics include, but are not limited to
  • Spatial point processes and stochastic geometry
  • Discrete and continuum percolation
  • Random graphs
  • Methods of statistical physics applied Discrete and continuum percolation
  • Scaling laws for wireless multi-hop networks (connectivity, capacity, delay, etc)
  • Distributed routing and scheduling protocols and algorithms
  • Network information theory
  • Power and topology control
  • Mobility
  • Coverage
  • 3G and CDMA networks
  • Applications to wireless sensor networks
  • Applications to ad hoc and hybrid networks

Abstract submission guidelines

Authors are invited to submit titles and extended abstracts. Submitted manuscripts should not exceed 6 pages in length, including figures, appendix and bibliography. Abstracts should be formatted in two columns with a point size greater or equal to 10pt. Submissions will be done electronically in Adobe PDF format, trhough EDAS. Use this link to access directly the SpaSWin 2006 EDAS submission page. Accepted abstracts will be published in (post)-workshop materials, with the copyright left to the authors. Authors will be offered the possibility to have their 6-page abstract listed in the IEEE XPlore as well as in the IEEE digital library, with IEEE publication status.
