Wireless systems offer new challenges to network and systems designers. Heterogeneous scenarios, high mobility, energy limitation and bandwidth constraints embody tough optimization problems that should be extensively studied through model analysis and realistic simulations. In this context, it is crucial to bridge the gap between investigations of foundational nature and their application to practical wireless network design.

This track aims to provide an international technical forum to bring together experts from industry and academia from across the world, to discuss and present innovative ideas and the results of ongoing research. We solicit original and unpublished work in the area of Wireless Models and Simulations, including but not limited to the following topics:

  • Modeling, simulations and performance analysis
  • Optimization of network design
  • Energy efficiency
  • Simulation languages and tools for wireless systems
  • Wireless measurements tools and experiences
  • Formal methods for the analysis of wireless systems
  • Correctness, survivability and reliability evaluation
  • Mobility modeling and management
  • Models and protocols for cognitive radio networks
  • Capacity, coverage and connectivity modeling and analysis
  • Pervasive computing and emerging models
  • Mobile applications, system software and algorithms
  • RF channel modeling and analysis
  • Design methodologies
  • Analytical Models
  • Parallel and distributed simulation of wireless systems
  • Load balancing of wireless systems
  • Mobility modeling and management
  • Scalability and manageability of network architectures
  • Network and multi-user information theory
  • Asymptotic properties (capacity, connectivity, coverage, delay)
