SAWN 2007

3rd ACIS International Workshop on

Self-Assembling Wireless Networks

Qingdao, China, July 30 - Aug 1, 2007 (note the date change)

in conjunction with

8th ACIS International Conference on Software Engineering, Artificial Intelligence, Networking, and Parallel/Distributed Computing (SNPD 2007)

The ACIS International Workshop on Self-Assembling Wireless Networks (SAWN) aims at bringing together industry practitioners and researchers working on all aspects of the emerging self-assembling wireless networks, including, but not limited to:

  • Modeling and optimization of heterogeneous self-assembling wireless networks
  • Authentication, privacy, and security
  • Dynamic networks and dynamic graph algorithms
  • Dynamic frequency and channel assignment
  • Multi-hop routing in heterogeneous ad hoc and sensor networks
  • Multi-path forwarding for fault tolerance
  • Wireless multicasting
  • Performance of end-to-end protocols over wireless networks
  • Data aggregation and management
  • Caching and pre-fetching for information access in wireless networks
  • Mechanisms design and cooperation enforcement
  • Synchronization and scheduling issues in ad hoc wireless networks
  • Resource management in mobile, wireless and ad hoc networks
  • Energy saving protocols for ad hoc and sensor wireless networks
  • Monitoring management in sensor networks
  • Mobility and location management
  • Algorithms for multimedia QoS and traffic management

Authors are invited to electronically submit unpublished research manuscripts of maximum 20 double-spaced pages in length (8 single-spaced pages in two-column format for the final camera-ready papers) by following the instructions at Tutorial proposals are also welcomed, and should be directed to workshop organizers. Accepted papers will appear in the proceedings of SNPD 2007, to be published by IEEE Computer Society. As in previous year, it is anticipated that a special issue of a major international journal will be devoted to full versions of the best workshop papers.

Important Dates:

  • Paper submission deadline: March 2, 2007
  • Notification of acceptance: March 30, 2007
  • Camera-ready and pre-registration: April 15, 2007
