CellNet 2013 workshop

Co-located with ACM MobiSys, June 25 2013, Taipei, Taiwan

Advance Program | Submission site

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 of topics:
- 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
- Mobility
- Energy efficiency
- Spectrum shortage
- Protocol design
- Algorithms to improve performance and efficiency
- Role of technqiues like SDN

Submission instructions
