International Workshop on Distributed, Autonomic and Robust Wireless Networks (DARWiN)
December 4-7, 2017 - Jaipur, India
Scope of the Workshop
The International Workshop on Distributed, Autonomic and Robust Wireless Networks (DARWiN) aims to gather researchers interested on wireless communications. They will have the opportunity to discuss on ongoing research and new contributions. DARWiN invites interesting contributions in both theoritical (modelisation, algorithmic) and experimental (simulation, emulation, real experimentation) fields. The main application domains are ad hoc networks, sensor networks, mesh networks and vehicular networks, but they can be extended to other types of wireless networks (especially low-resources networks).
Topics for the workshop include, but are not limited to:
• Wireless sensor networks, vehicular ad hoc networks
• Wireless Software-Defined Networking
• MAC, routing and transport protocols
• Resource allocation and management
• Quality of service
• Network scalability and capacity
• Reliability and fault tolerance algorithms
• Security and privacy
• Applications of wireless ad hoc networks
• Performance modeling and analysis
• Tools/platform for designing, implementing and evaluating wireless communication protocols
• Distributed algorithms issues for wireless networks
• Autonomic computing
• Wireless networks optimization
• Secure Services and Protocols
• Indoor/outdoor Positioning methods based on distributed wireless networks
• Smart cities
• Internet of Things
Submission deadline: September 23, 2017
Acceptance/Reject notification: October 21, 2017
Camera-ready: October 30, 2017
Author Registration: October 31, 2017
Each submission should be at most 8 pages in total including bibliography and well-marked appendices, and must follow the IEEE double columns publication format available at:
Paper submission will only be online via: Easy Chair
Only pdf files will be accepted. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.
All submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression by at least two reviewers. The organizers will examine the reviews and make final paper selections.
All the papers accepted for the workshop will be included in the conference proceedings and submitted for inclusion to IEEE Xplore and major indexes. They will be available at the conference.
At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the workshop. Workshop registration fee is determined by SITIS. A single registration for the workshop or the conference allows attending both events.
