First International Workshop on Cooperative Wireless Networks – CWN 2014

CWN 2014 will take place in Larnaca, Cyprus, on October 8-10, 2014, collocated with the 10th IEEE International Conference on Wireless and Mobile Computing, Networking and Communications (WiMob 2014).

The aim of this workshop is to provide a space for researchers and technologists to present new ideas and contributions in cooperative wireless networks, a key element for the advance of the Future Internet. The concept of cooperation can be applied to a wide scope of technologies, systems and applications, in order to achieve an efficient use of the spectrum (cognitive radio), extended network coverage (cooperative diversity, multi-hop relaying), improved performance and reliability (network coding, cross-layer protocols) and user safety (vehicular networks, emergency networks), among other aspects. 

The organizers of this workshop invite prospective authors to submit high-quality technical papers addressing, but not limited to, the following topics of interest:

  • Power management in wireless cooperative networks
  • Dynamic resource allocation in wireless cooperative networks
  • Cross-layer management and protocols for cooperative networks
  • Cross-layer design and optimization for cooperative networks
  • Control and management in cooperative networks
  • Network coding in cooperative networks
  • Cognitive radio and spectrum management
  • Cooperative communications: multi-hop and hierarchical relaying
  • Cooperative diversity
  • Cooperative compensation policies
  • Multimedia transmission in cooperative networks
  • Cooperation in 5G networks (information theoretic aspects, scaling laws)
  • Cooperation in Wireless Sensor Networks
  • Cooperation in Vehicular Wireless Networks
  • Performance analysis in cooperative networks
  • Applications and services over cooperative networks
  • Test-beds and experimentation on cooperative networks
