Call for Papers

The technical program committee is soliciting contributions devoted to recent results. We especially encourage students and junior researchers to participate.

The Seventh Nordic Workshop on System and Network Optimization for Wireless (SNOW) aims at bringing together researchers and students from the academia and industry working in wireless networking. The scope of the workshop is broad and intended to accommodate a wide variety of backgrounds, attitudes, and ideas in wireless communications ranging from cellular broadband to ad hoc / mesh networking, and from the physical up to the application layers.

We welcome contributions within a broad range of wireless networking and cross-layer optimization, from fundamental information theoretic results to considerations for multimedia quality of service. Our goal is to have a single track meeting with lively scientific discussions and fruitful exchange of research views and perspectives. The program will be organized to promote networking activities between the participants including daily social outdoors activities, primarily skiing.

We therefore invite submissions of extended abstracts (2 pages maximum, double column, IEEE style file) for poster/technical presentations targeting, but not limited to the following topics:

  • Asymptotic system properties (capacity, connectivity, coverage, delay)
  • System design for 5G wireless
  • Scalability and manageability of network architectures
  • Interference management and wireless network densification
  • Resource management, mobility management, and admission control
  • Inter-networking and integration of wireless heterogeneous and multi-tier networks
  • Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications, and Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Performance engineering in WLAN, MESH, FSO, LTE, and other cellular or multitier technologies
  • Location and tracking
  • Wireless network planning, capacity analysis, and topology control
  • Self-organizing wireless networks
  • Game theoretic models, pricing and incentives
  • Energy efficiency and green communications
  • Delay tolerant wireless networks
  • Cognitive radios and cooperative/opportunistic communications
  • Massive MIMO (or large-scale antennas systems)
  • Communication with millimeter waves
  • Compressed sensing applications in wireless networks
  • Ad hoc, mesh and sensor networks
  • Advanced physical layer solutions
