[PVS] CFP: 6th IEEE Workshop on Broadband Wireless Access (BWA)@Globecom

[Please accept our apologies if you receive multiple copies of this posting]

6 Dec. 2010, Miami, US, http://ieee-bwaws.nginet.de/GLOBECOM2010/

colocated with

IEEE Global Communications Conference (IEEE GLOBECOM 2010)
6-10 Dec. 2010, Miami, US, www.ieee-globecom.org

Paper Submission Deadline: 21 June 2010


Internet access is undergoing a fundamental change. More powerful devices
and lower cost radio technologies are facilitating the transition to the
Mobile Internet in which users can access a diverse range of services and
applications anytime, anywhere. However, the huge increase in demand that
this brings cannot easily be met by current radio access systems. Hence,
there is a need for more powerful, more efficient, higher speed, lower cost
radio technologies for Broadband Wireless Access.

There is much energy within the community to develop more advanced BWA
technologies - activities span the wireless domain, ranging from more
advanced antenna technologies to co-operative relays to mesh networking
systems and many more: future networks will likely employ some mix of these
different mechanisms. We anticipate that this 6th workshop will continue the
series of successful workshops, providing a forum for new research results
and reports on practical experience working with innovative technologies in
the domain of Broadband Wireless Access. The workshop, then, is soliciting
contributions including but not limited to topics listed below.

* Incumbent and Future BWA Technologies, UMTS, HSPA, LTE, LTE-Advanced,
* Self Configuring and Self Optimizing Networks
* Repeater, Mesh, Relay, Femto and Pico Base Station based Solutions
* Vehicular Networks

* Radio Resource Management, Admission Control, Power Control and Scheduling
* QoS and QoE in Mobile and BWA Networks
* Cross-Layer Optimization Concepts and Experimental Evaluation
* Multi-Antenna Technologies, Beamforming, Antenna Selection, Rank
Adaptation, etc.
* Single and Multiuser MIMO Techniques
* Cooperative and Collaborative Networking, Network MIMO
* Interference Mitigation, Cancellation, Coordination and Alignment
* Channel Estimation Techniques

* Wireless Network Management
* Capacity Planning and Traffic Engineering
* Characterization of BWA Traffic
* Traffic, Mobility and Channel Models
* Design and Evaluation of Testbeds and Field Trials
* Experiences/Lessons from Recent Deployments
* Large-scale and Heterogeneous BWA Evaluations

* Multi-Access Networks, Vertical and Horizontal Integration
* Interoperability Aspects (Fixed/Mobile LANs/MANs, WANs)
* Micro and Macro Mobility Management
* Multicarrier Operation and Carrier Aggregation
* Spectrum Management, Regulatory Issues
* Cognitive and Dynamic Spectrum Management Techniques

* Alternative Network Deployments, Dense Networking
* Integration of Device to Device Communications to Cellular Networks
* Broadcasting and Multicasting in BWA Networks
* Green Networking and Energy Efficient Algorithms
* Network Coding and its Applications in Wireless Systems
