WinMEE 2012 - The 8th International Workshop on Wireless Network Measurements

Paderborn, Germany
- Paderborn

Event Description

The rise in wireless technologies for both local and wide-area networking, such
as ZigBee, Wi-Fi, WiMAX, 3G and LTE, indicates that the Internet is becoming
increasingly wireless. Accurate measurements of practical wireless deployments
are vital for researchers to evaluate the real-world performance of proposed
solutions. In addition to better understanding of systems, experimental wireless
network measurements allow for better analytical and simulation models which are
often limited by simplified protocol and wireless channel models. As a
consequence, the need for experimental wireless network measurements has gained
wide recognition in the wireless networking research community. This workshop
continues the successful WiNMee series, begun at WiOpt in 2005, and is intended
to bring together researchers in the field of experimental wireless networking
and serve as a forum for discussing advances and challenges in experimental
wireless network measurements.

We seek novel papers that advance the understanding of wireless networks through
testbed measurements or field experiments. Topics of interest include, but are
not limited to the following:

- Experimentations and measurements of wireless networks:
* Experience and measurements from building, designing and/or operating
wireless networks (including location and energy consumption)
* Measurement and characterization of mobile network (e.g., traffic, usage
and mobility patterns)
* Experimental validation of network simulation and mobility models in
actual wireless environments
* Measurements-driven models and simulations of wireless networks
* Measurements-based network management and troubleshooting
* Large-scale or federated test-bed measurements
* Home networking mea
