CellNet 2013 workshop
Co-located with ACM MobiSys,
June 25 2013, Taipei, Taiwan
With the popularity of smart phones and tablets, we are living in an
increasingly mobile world. Third-party mobile applications
are rapidly growing everyday and greatly enrich our lives. The eco-system
for mobile applications is vibrant and conducive to open innovation.
An important part of this ecosystem is the underlying connectivity
provided by a cellular network.
While innovations in mobile services and applications have thrived,
innovations in the underlying cellular systems are much more limited.
This is partially caused by the closed and monolithic nature of these
networks, where the core design and operational challenges of these networks
are not very accessible to the research community. The goal of this workshop
is to bring together network operators, and academic researchers together to
discuss emerging problems, challenges, and potential solutions in this domain.
To facilitate this discussion and engagement, we would like to solicit
technical papers, including position papers, that are no more than 6-pages
long in the standard ACM two-column, 10 point format. Early work that stimulate
discussions are also strongly encouraged. The following is a non-exhaustive list
- Radio resource allocation and usage profiling
- Cellular network architectures
- Understanding and modeling cellular data traffic
- Billing and pricing models
- Cellular network security and privacy issues
- Cellular network management
- Energy efficiency
- Spectrum shortage
- Protocol design
- Algorithms to improve performance and efficiency
- Role of technqiues like SDN
Each submission must be a single PDF file no longer than six (6) pages in length
(in two-column, 10-point format) including references (a sample Latex file will be
available from the workshop website). Papers should be submitted via the submission
site. Papers must include the author name and affiliation for single-blind peer
reviewing by the program committee. Authors of accepted papers are expected to present
their papers at the workshop. Submissions must be original work not under review at any
other workshop, conference, or journal.
Submit your papers through our submission site.
