2nd ACM International Workshop on Performance Monitoring, Measurement, and Evaluation of Heterogeneous Wireless and Wired Networks - PM2HW2N'07
To be held in conjunction with 10th ACM/IEEE International Symposium on Modeling, Analysis and Simulation of Wireless and Mobile Systems - MSWiM'07
October 22 - 26, 2007
Chania, Crete Island, Greece
DEADLINE FOR PAPER SUBMISSION EXTENDED TO JUNE, 11th !
Wireless networks, including ad hoc, sensor, along with ubiquitous, have witnessed over the past few years their fastest growth period and have become increasingly complex. Nonetheless, their performance evaluation and analysis have been conducted mostly through software simulations (e.g. using ns-2 or OPNET tools). Very recently, some research efforts have been directed towards measuring real-world commercial and experimental networks; constructing models based on real-world data and using prototypes to more realistically and comprehensively evaluate the suggested solutions and more specifically validate the assumptions and the conclusions reached via the simulation approach.
The monitoring, measurements, and evaluation of heterogeneous wired and wireless mobile networks poses a new set of unique challenges due to the unique inherent properties of these systems and due to the characteristics of the wireless transmission medium.
The aim of this workshop, whose 1st edition was held in 2006 in Torremolinos (Spain), is 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 performance measurements, monitoring, and evaluation of heterogeneous wired and wireless mobile networks, including, wireless ad hoc, sensor, and ubiquitous networks.
