ACM WiNTECH 2013: The 8th ACM International Workshop on Wireless Network Testbeds, Experimental Evaluation and Characterization

Miami, Florida, September 30th, 2013

 

We witnessed an increasing demand for high‐speed, reliable and ubiquitous mobile wireless networks in recent years. Following this trend, challenging issues to satisfy the growing number of wireless users can be foreseen. Doubtlessly, thorough experimental analyses are of paramount importance to accurately identify the limitations of current technologies and to motivate innovative ideas to solve them. Moreover, realistic empirical evaluations of such a diverse set of solutions, and their mutual interactions, will play a major role to demonstrate their efficiency in everyday denser networks, thus shaping future advances in wireless technology. Due to these, sharing experiences, methodologies and experimental results are gaining wider recognition in the mobile and wireless research community.

WiNTECH aims at bringing together researchers working in the broad area of experimental wireless networking. This workshop will serve as a forum to share new ideas and experiences gathered across all experimental aspects of wireless networks and systems, and facilitate discussions of key unresolved challenges in this area. We are seeking original, previously unpublished papers empirically addressing key issues and challenges in wireless networking. All submissions will be judged by their technical merit and relevance to the workshop, based on a thorough review process by the Technical Program Committee.
