Minitrack on

Wireless Networks

in the Software Technology Track of the

48th Hawaii International Conference on Systems Sciences
(HICSS 48)

January 5-8, 2015, Grand Hyatt Kauai, Hawaii.


Submission deadline: June 15, 2014 (firm)

This minitrack is focused on the issues that arise in designing and building wireless networks, and on the applications of wireless networks in solving real-world challenges and connecting people and devices.

Technical issues are found in the protocol stack from the physical layer to the application layer, and include greater efficiency, security, scalability, the design and motivation of new systems, novel applications, better use of existing technology, energy efficiency of communications and use, regulatory issues, and in general, issues that are of concern when designing or building wireless networks.

Often, technical solutions must be accompanied by relevant social, environmental, or economic considerations that may be essential to the success of the technology.

In general, this minitrack is expansive in welcoming submissions in any area related to wireless networks. Prospective authors are invited to contact the minitrack chairs if they seek more detailed guidance.

The following is a partial list of research topics of particular interest for this minitrack:


Authors submit the full paper by June 15, 2014. Instructions will be posted here as the deadline nears, and in any case are likely to resemble the instructions for HICSS 47.

No extensions of time will be allowed.

Papers must be original. At least one author of each accepted paper must register to attend the conference.


Submission of full manuscript       June 15, 2014 (no extensions)
Acceptance notification August 16, 2014
Submission of final version September 15, 2014


When contacting a minitrack co-chair, please send email to all three.
