Second International Workshop on Cooperative Wireless Networks – CWN 2015

CWN 2015 will take place in Abu Dhabi, UAE on October 19, 2015, collocated with the 11th IEEE International Conference on Wireless and Mobile Computing, Networking and Communications (WiMob 2015).

The aim of this workshop is to provide a space for researchers and technologists to present new ideas and contributions in cooperative wireless networks, a key element for the advance of the Future Internet. The concept of cooperation can be applied to a wide scope of technologies, systems and applications, in order to achieve an efficient use of the spectrum (cognitive radio), extended network coverage (cooperative diversity, multi-hop relaying), improved performance and reliability (network coding, cross-layer protocols) and user safety (vehicular networks, emergency networks), among other aspects.

The organizers of this workshop invite prospective authors to submit high-quality technical papers addressing, but not limited to, the following topics of interest:

  • Dynamic resource allocation in wireless cooperative networks
  • Cross-layer management and protocols for cooperative networks
  • Cross-layer design and optimization for cooperative networks
  • Control and management in cooperative networks
  • Network coding in cooperative networks
  • Cognitive radio and spectrum management
  • Cooperative communications: multi-hop and hierarchical relaying
  • Cooperative diversity
  • Information theory aspects of cooperation
  • Power management in wireless cooperative networks
  • Cooperative compensation policies
  • Multimedia transmission in cooperative networks
  • Cooperation in 5G networks
  • Cooperation in software defined networks
  • Cooperation in Wireless Sensor Networks
  • Cooperation in Vehicular Wireless Networks
  • Performance analysis in cooperative networks
  • Applications and services over cooperative networks
  • Test-beds and experimentation on cooperative networks
