The performance of wireless networks depends critically on the spatial configuration of the transmitters, receivers and relaying nodes. As a result, the modeling of such networks requires methods and tools from point process theory, stochastic geometry and random graph theory. The art of modeling wireless networks is strongly multi-disciplinary, combining these spatial, stochastic tools with information and communication theory, networking theory, combinatorics, and game theory. SpaSWiN is the first workshop specifically devoted to the use of spatial stochastic models for improved design of wireless networks. Building on the success of the seven previous venues of the workshop: in Riva del Garda (2005), Boston (2006), Limassol (2007), Berlin (2008), Seoul (2009), Avignon (2010) and Princeton (2011), the goal of SpaSWiN 2012 is to bring together researchers from the various disciplines involved in spatial models of wireless communications. Please join us in Paderborn, Germany on May 14, 2012.

Call for papers

The technical program committee is soliciting contributions that employ spatial stochastic models - including, but not limited to, point processes, stochastic geometry, discrete and continuum percolation, and random graphs - to design and analyze wireless networks. All aspects and technologies of wireless networking will be considered, including (but not limited to): ad hoc, cellular, mesh, sensor, mobile, hybrid, and two-tier networks; models for coverage, connectivity, capacity, delay, energy efficiency; distributed routing and scheduling protocols and algorithms; network information theory; power and topology control; mobility models.

Authors are invited to submit titles and extended abstracts. Submitted manuscripts should not exceed 6 pages in length, including figures, appendix and bibliography. Abstracts should be formatted in two columns with a point size greater or equal to 10pt. Submissions will be done electronically in Adobe PDF format. Accepted abstracts will be published in (post)-workshop materials, with the copyright left to the authors. Authors will be offered the possibility to have their 6-page abstracts listed in the IEEExplore as well as in the IEEE digital library, with IEEE publication status.

Camera-ready instructions

The camera-ready version of accepted papers should be generated using the IEEE standard template, which you can find on the corresponding IEEE webpage. We strongly encourage you to use the LaTeX template. Papers are up to 6 pages long, in double column format, including all figures, tables, abstract, and references.
Camera-ready papers may be uploaded through EDAS. Note that at least one author of each accepted paper needs to register to the workshop. Registrations are also be handled through EDAS (click here and select WiOpt 2012. SpaSWiN is listed among the registration options).
