Next Generation (i.e. 5G) Wireless Networks will be composed of flexible, multi-tier, and scalable heterogeneous architectures, incorporating small cells and wifi offloading. High user mobility necessitates dynamic management from the network side to ensure end-to-end reliable and secure support of new services. In wireless networks, the medium alone creates additional challenges for efficiently providing QoS, due to its broadcast nature and uncertainty. Meanwhile, the proliferation of new services in the mobile market is driving the QoS requirements higher (in terms of performance indicators spanning throughput, delays, network coverage etc). Thus, an important challenge in future wireless communications is how to design and run cost efficient networks that optimize the key performance indicators to support the user requirements.

Resource management and planning are key mechanisms that enable the efficient and effective operation of wireless networks, aiming to minimize the impact of interference and maximize the overall network performance. For wireless networks, where multiple heterogeneous networks (both in terms of network elements and in term of access technologies) will co-exist in the same geographical area, these mechanisms will be of key importance not only for a single network operation but for the smooth network cooperation, the optimal use of wireless spectrum and the provision of high quality services to the users. Taking into account the requirements, applications, and users, the developed mechanisms should be optimized in terms of performance, scalability, robustness, flexibility and energy efficiency. The purpose of this session is to bring together researchers focusing on resource management and optimization within the context of heterogeneous wireless networking.

Our intended audience spans academic and industrial researchers in the broader area of Wireless communications and networks. Prospective authors are invited to submit original, unpublished works on the following research topics, but not limited to: 

- Access network architectures and protocols optimization towards 5G wireless networks
- Resource management mechanisms for heterogeneous networks
- Quality of service in future heterogeneous wireless networks
- Optimized and robust dynamic spectrum access
- Cognitive Radio inspired access mechanisms
- Performance modeling of future networks
- Scalability, robustness and resilience
- Cross-layer design and optimization
- Co-existence issues of future heterogeneous networks
- Heterogeneous network simulation models and techniques



A full paper should not have more than five (5) IEEE style pages including results, figures and references. For more information on the submission guidelines including page limit, font size, templates, etc, please visit: http://www.ieee.org/publications_standards/publications/authors/authors_journals.html. Papers should be submitted in a PDF format at the EDAS System.

Papers will be reviewed with the standard reviewing procedure (with at least 3 independent anonymous reviews). Accepted papers will be published on IEEExplore.
