The Fifth Nordic Workshop on System and Network Optimization
for Wireless (SNOW'14)
Åre, Sweden
2 - 4 April 2014


Confirmed Keynote Speakers
Mario Gerla, Professor at University of California, Los
Angeles, USA
Merouane Debbah, Professor at Supélec, Paris, France

The Fifth Nordic Workshop on System and Network Optimization
for Wireless (SNOW) aims at bringing together researchers
and students from the academia and industry working in
wireless networking. The scope of the workshop is broad and intended
to accommodate a wide variety of backgrounds, attitudes, and
ideas in wireless communications ranging from cellular
broadband to ad hoc / mesh networking, and from the physical
up to the application layers.

We welcome contributions within a broad range of wireless
networking and cross-layer optimization, from fundamental
information theoretic results to considerations for
multimedia quality of service. Our goal is to have a single
track meeting with lively scientific discussions and
fruitful exchange of research views and perspectives. The
program will be organized to promote networking activities
between the participants including daily social outdoors
activities, primarily skiing.

We therefore invite submissions of extended abstracts (2
pages maximum, double column, IEEE style) for technical
presentations or posters targeting, but not limited to the
following topics:

• Asymptotic system properties (capacity, connectivity, coverage, delay)
• Scalability and manageability of network architectures
• Resource management, mobility management, and admission control
• Inter-networking and integration of wireless heterogeneous and 
   multi-tier networks
• Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications, and Internet of Things (IoT)
• Performance engineering in WLAN, MESH, FSO, LTE, and other cellular 
   or multitier technologies
• Location and tracking
• Wireless network planning, capacity analysis, and topology control
• Self-organizing wireless networks
• Game theoretic models, pricing and incentives
• Energy efficiency and green communications
• Delay tolerant wireless networks
• Cognitive radios and cooperative/opportunistic communications
• Massive MIMO (or large-scale antennas systems)
• Compressed sensing applications in wireless networks
• Ad hoc, mesh and sensor networks
• Advanced physical layer solutions
Please submit your Abstract in a .pdf file format via email to: snow2014 at itn.liu.se

The organizers have secured funds for subsidies to support part
of the costs for a limited number of participants, with
preference given to PhD students.
