Call For Papers 
WiOpt 2013 

11th Intl. Symposium on Modeling and Optimization in 
Mobile, Ad Hoc, and Wireless Networks (WiOpt 2013) 
May 13-17, 2013, Tsukuba Science City, Japan 

Technically sponsored by the IEEE Information Theory Society, IEEE Control Systems Society 

Scope of the Symposium 
WiOpt 2013, 11th International Symposium on Modeling and Optimization in Mobile, Ad Hoc, and Wireless Networks, intends to bring together researchers and practitioners working on modeling and optimization of wireless network design and operations. It welcomes original, high-quality works on different perspectives, including performance analysis and simulation, algorithms and protocol design, optimization theory and application, information theoretic analysis including capacity scaling, for all forms of wireless networks: cellular, metropolitan, ad hoc, delay-tolerant, mesh, sensor networks as well as any combination of these. 

Contributions to the symposium should improve the state-of-the-art in design, analysis, dimensioning and operations of wireless network by providing insights into theoretical aspects as well as providing practical methods and tools. All forms of wireless networks are of interest: from cellular wide-area and local-area networks to dense and sparse ad-hoc networks; domain specific vehicular, public-transport and personal-area networks as well as application-specific sensor networks. Technical papers describing original, previously unpublished research, not currently under review by another conference are solicited. 

Topics of relevance include, but are not limited to, the following ones: 
*Asymptotic system properties, e.g., capacity, connectivity, coverage, delay 
*Cognitive radios 
*Cross-layer design and optimization 
*Dynamic spectrum management 
*Energy efficiency 
*Game theoretic models, contract, pricing, and incentives 
*Interference in wireless networks 
*Mobility modeling and management 
*Modeling, simulations, and performances analysis 
*Network and multi-user information theory 
*Network protocol design 
*Opportunistic and cooperative communications 
*Optimal control of network operations 
*Optimization of network design 
*Routing protocols 
*Scalability and manageability of network architectures 
*Security in wireless networks 


Authors are invited to submit original and unpublished research papers. The length of the manuscripts will be limited to 8 pages (IEEE conference double column style). Please use 11 pt character size, double column text. The submission will be handled via EDAS system (http://edas.info/). Only PDF files are acceptable; please make sure that the paper prints without problems (take care to embed all required fonts, etc.). 

All submissions will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity, and soundness. Each paper will be reviewed by at least two to three researchers in the topic area. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register and present the paper at the conference. The accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings and will be available via the IEEE Xplore website. Best Paper Awards and Best Student Paper Awards (the first author should be a full-time student) will be granted. 

Important Dates 
Paper Submission Deadline: December 20, 2012. 
Notification of Acceptance: March 1, 2013. 
Camera-ready Papers and Author Registration Due: March 15, 2013. 
Conference: May 13-17, 201
