Topics of interest of WD 2017 are organized into the following five tracks:

Track 1: 5G and Beyond

The number of devices connected to the Internet is always growing with increasing requirements coming from new applications and services introduced to users. To meet the demands beyond 2020, new concepts and design approaches are needed, and must be integrated into systems that provide the necessary flexibility, versatility and scalability at low cost and low energy consumption. To provide such systems, a technology roadmap for next generation networks is collectively referred to as “5G”. But some of the proposal can be considered as aiming at a target beyond.

The purpose of this track is to bring together researchers, engineers, and students from academia and industry, to discuss, share their experiences and exchange new ideas about theoretical and practical aspects of 5G and Beyond from physical layer up to innovative applications. We solicit original and unpublished research in this area, including, but not limited to, the following topics:

    Efficient air interfaces (low signaling overhead, energy consumption,…)
    Interference metrics, measurements and management
    Spectrum use, spectrum sharing models,  spectrum measurement

Track 2: Wireless Communications

The Wireless Communications Track aims at covering all aspects related to wireless communications and its applications, with a focus on topics related to physical layer (PHY), MAC layer, cross-layer, and physical layer-related network analysis and design.

The purpose of this track is to bring together researchers, engineers, and students from academia and industry, to discuss, share their experiences and exchange new ideas about theoretical and practical aspects of wireless communications. We solicit original and unpublished research in all aspects of wireless communications, including, but not limited to, the following topics:

Track 3: Ad Hoc, Sensor, Vehicular and Delay Tolerant Networks

Over the last decade Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANET) and Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) have attracted a lot of attention from the network research community. Many efforts have been devoted to this area, producing a significant number of contributions addressing topics like multi-hop routing protocols, MAC protocols, security architectures and mechanisms, etc. Although the fundamental issues of MANET and WSN have been by now largely investigated, a mature understanding of the challenges related to real application scenarios is still missing. Moreover, new application contexts, like inter-vehicular networks or underwater sensor networks are raising exciting new questions. The adaptation to realistic application scenario, the emergence of new application contexts, and the development of new communication technologies (e.g. MIMO, Cognitive Radio), require a reconsideration or an adaptation of the initial ideas and approaches originally designed for MANET and WSN, respectively.

The purpose of this track is to bring together researchers, engineers, and students from academia and industry, to discuss, share their experiences and exchange new ideas about theoretical and practical aspects of MANET and WSN. We solicit original and unpublished research in all aspects of Ad-Hoc, Sensor and MESH Networks, including, but not limited to, the following topics:

Track 4: Wireless Models and Simulations

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.
