The Fifth Nordic Workshop on

System and Network Optimization for Wireless

Åre, Sweden, 2 - 4 April 2014


Call for Abstracts

The 2014 SNOW Technical Program Committee is soliciting contributions devoted to recent research results. We especially encourage students and junior researchers to participate.

We welcome contributions within a broad range of wireless networking and cross-layer optimization, from fundamental information theoretic results to considerations for multimedia quality of service. Our goal is to have a single track meeting with lively scientific discussions and fruitful exchange of views, and to accommodate a wide variety of backgrounds and research attitudes. The program will be organized in such a way to promote networking activities between the participants including daily social outdoors activities, primarily skiing.

We therefore invite submissions of extended abstracts (2 pages maximum, double column, IEEE style file) for poster/technical presentations targeting, but not limited to the following topics:

  • Asymptotic system properties (capacity, connectivity, coverage, delay)

  • Scalability and manageability of network architectures

  • Resource management, mobility management, and admission control

  • Inter-networking and integration of wireless heterogeneous and multi-tier networks

  • Machine-to-machine (M2M) communications, and Internet of Things (IoT)

  • Performance engineering in WLAN, MESH, FSO, LTE, and other cellular or multitier technologies

  • Location and Tracking

  • Wireless network planning, capacity analysis, and topology control

  • Self-organizing wireless networks

  • Game theoretic models, pricing and incentives

  • Energy efficiency and green communications

  • Delay tolerant wireless networks

  • Cognitive Radios and cooperative/opportunistic communications

  • Massive MIMO (or large-scale antennas systems)

  • Compressed sensing applications in wireless networks

  • Ad hoc, mesh and sensor networks

  • Advanced physical layer solutions


The organizers have secured funds to support part of the costs for a limited number of participants. These will take the forms of Student Grants.
