WiNTECH 2014  

The Ninth ACM International Workshop on Wireless Network Testbeds, Experimental Evaluation and Characterization

Co-located with ACM MobiCom 2014

September 7, 2014

Sponsored by SIGMOBILE

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 We are seeking original, previously unpublished papers empirically addressing key issues and challenges in wireless networking.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.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Design and evaluation of wireless testbeds, prototypes and platforms

  • Experiences/lessons from recent testbed deployments

  • Hybrid experimentation approaches combining use of multiple evaluation methodologies

  • Integration of diverse and distributed testbed infrastructures

  • Testbed management issues and monitoring support

  • Wireless testbed case studies

  • Experimental evaluation of applications and protocols, including the impact of cross-layer interactions

  • Large-scale and heterogeneous wireless network evaluations

  • Approaches for real-world evaluation of mobile networks

  • Measurement and evaluation on large-scale smartphone based deployments

  • Studies on real-world white-space networks

  • Evaluation environments for sensor and satellite networks

  • Techniques for improving reproducibility of real-world testing

  • Implementation approaches to ease transition between different evaluation methodologies

  • New measurement methodologies and infrastructures

  • Measurement and characterization (modeling) of real-world aspects of wireless networks such as usage patterns, traffic, mobility and channel characteristics

  • Interference and spectrum usage measurements

  • Validation of existing simulation models, and results across different testbeds/evaluation methodologies

  • Techniques for improving reproducibility of real-world testing
