----------------- CALL FOR PAPERS    ---------------------------

                  6th  ACM PE-WASUN 2009
   6th ACM International Symposium on Performance Evaluation of
         Wireless Ad Hoc, Sensor, and Ubiquitous Networks

                   Tenerife, Canary Islands, SPAIN
                       26-30 October, 2009

     Paper registration due:    May 27th, 2009


Wireless  ad hoc,  sensor,  along  with  ubiquitous  networks have
recently witnessed  their  fastest  growth period ever in history,
and this trend is likely  to continue  for the foreseeable future.
However, as such networks become increasingly complex, performance
modeling  and  evaluation will play crucial  part in their design
process  to ensure their successful deployment and exploitation in

This  symposium aims  to bring together scientists, engineers, and
practitioners  to  share  and  exchange their experiences, discuss
challenges,  and  report state-of-the-art and in-progress research
on all aspects of wireless ad hoc, sensor, and ubiquitous networks
with  a  specific  emphasis  on  their  performance evaluation and
analysis. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Predictive performance models of ad hoc, sensor, and ubiquitous
- Analytical modeling
- Probabilistic models for ad hoc, sensor, and ubiquitous networks
- Queuing and network information theoretic analysis
- Simulation methods
- Automatic performance analysis
- Performance comparison
- Performance of wireless and sensor devices
- Algorithms and protocols for wireless multimedia sensor networks
- RF channel capacity modeling and analysis
- Mobility modeling and management
- Traffic models for ad hoc, sensor networks
- Performance evaluation of wireless mesh networks
- Performance evaluation of vehicular networks
- Algorithms and protocols for vehicular networks,
   and vehicular sensor networks
- Localization and time synchronization for ad hoc,
   sensor and vehicular networks
- Performance evaluation of pervasive and ubiquitous networks
- Network performance improvement through optimization and tuning
- Tracing and trace analysis
- Software tools for network performance and evaluation
- Performance  measurement, evaluation and monitoring tools for ad
  hoc, sensor and ubiquitous networks
- Case studies demonstrating the role of performance evaluation in
  the design of ad hoc, sensor, and ubiquitous networks
- Trust and Security protocols
- Quality of Service and Assurance
