Call for submission of abstracts

Important Dates:
Abstract Submission: Jan. 5, 2011

The Second Nordic Workshop on System and Network Optimization for
Wireless (SNOW) aims at bringing together Researchers and Students from
the Academia working in wireless networking, primarily in the Nordic
This year, the Nordic SNOW Workshop aims to have a special focus on
broadband cellular access (HSPA, LTE/LTE-A, etc) and emerging wireless
networking paradigms such as collaborative and heterogeneous networking.
We further welcome presentations within a broad range of wireless
networking cross-layer optimization, from fundamental communication
performance analysis to considerations for multimedia QoS.
Our goal is to have a single track meeting with lively scientific
discussions and exchange of views, and to accommodate a wide variety of
backgrounds and research attitudes. The program will be organized in
such a way to promote networking activities between the participants,
including daily social outdoors activities like skiing.

We therefore invite for review submissions of up to 1-page abstracts of
technical presentations targeting, but not limited to the following topics:
- Asymptotic system properties (capacity, connectivity, coverage, delay)
- Cellular systems, 3G/4G, LTE-advanced, WMAN, WRAN, and other emerging
broadband wireless networks
- Inter-networking and integration of wireless heterogeneous and
multi-tier networks
- Performance engineering in HSPA, WLAN, MESH, LTE, and other cellular
or multitier technologies
- Wireless network planning, capacity analysis, and topology control
- Cognitive Radios and cooperative/opportunistic communications
- Self-organizing wireless networks
- Game theoretic models, pricing and incentives
- Resource management, mobility management, and admission control
- Energy efficiency and green communications
- Delay tolerant wireless networks
- Scalability and manageability of network architectures
- Automated planning and resource allocation in 3G HSPA (and beyond)

Abstracts must be submitted electronically through the Nordic SNOW
workshop web page: http://snow.itn.liu.se/AbstractSubSnow.html

The workshop keynote presentations will be soon announced on the
workshop web page.
