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

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 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
The organizers have secured funds for subsidies to support part of the costs for a limited number of participants.

Venue & Transportation
The Fifth Nordic Workshop on System and Network Optimization for Wireless will take place at the Swedish ski resort of Åre in Jämtland. Having hosted the Alpine World Championships in 1954 and 2007 and with more than 30 modern ski-lifts the Åre Ski Area is the major center for alpine skiing in Sweden. The workshop venue, the Copperhill Mountain Lodge Hotel Åre [http://www.copperhill.se/en/], on the top of the Förberget Mountain opened in 2008, is the only mountain hotel in Scandinavia referred to as a Design Hotel, and is directly connected to the Åre ski area with its own platter lift, the Copperhill Express.
The nearest airports, the Åre Östersund airport [http://www.swedavia.com/ostersund/], and the Værnes Trondheim airport [http://www.avinor.no/en/airport/trondheim], have scheduled flights from Stockholm's Arlanda airport and the Oslo's Gardermoen airport, seasonal and charter flights are also available. The Åre railway station is connected with direct trains to Stockholm as well.
