The SWANSITY workshop aims to solicit contributions on novel algorithms,
methodological studies and experimentations on how to make a city-wide
network infrastructure able to self-adapt to the dynamic requirements posed
by the users and by the applications, to manage the complexity of
heterogeneous devices and access technologies, and to guarantee robust,
ubiquitous, and secure connectivity over the urban environments. At the
same time, beside studying the issues of the city-wide infrastructure
deployment, the workshop aims to investigate the potential provided by the
end-users devices (e.g. smartphones, tablets) when augmented with
self-organization capabilities, in order to turn them into active components
of the smart-city network, instead of mere connection end-points. Such a
potential includes the possibility to extend the network access in a
pervasive way, to provide ubiquitous computing services, and to favor the
emergence of "collectivity intelligence behaviors" through collaboration and
direct communication among devices.

In line with such objectives, original contributions are solicited in topics
of interest including, but not limited to, the following:

• Models of network components' interactions on a

• Techniques and tools for modeling self-organizing
wireless networks on large-scale urban environments

• Self-organizing wireless networks for pervasive urban

• Self-organizing and self-repairing wireless networks for
disaster recovery

• Dynamic resource allocation schemes for urban

• Evolutionary design of wireless network components and

• Enabling technologies and algorithms for self-configuring
wireless nodes

• Self-organizing femtocell and cognitive radio networks

• Cooperative Smart Objects supporting Wireless Networks

• Decision making strategies for software defined radio

• Emerging collective intelligence in self-organizing
wireless networks

• Network virtualization for heterogeneous wireless

• Bio-inspired models for self-organizing wireless networks

• Controlled mobility algorithms for self-placing wireless

• Self-organizing networks through Device-2-Device
technology (D2D)

• Business model to promote users collaboration and
resources sharing

• Security, Privacy and Trust issues in Self-organizing
wireless networks

Prospective authors are invited to submit original technical paper by the
deadline of 31 March 2014. Submissions will be accepted through EDAS. All
submissions must be written in English and be at most six (6) printed pages
in length, including figures.
