Minitrack on

Wireless Networks

in the Software Technology Track of the

49th Hawaii International Conference on Systems Sciences
(HICSS 49)

January 5-8, 2016, Grand Hyatt Kauai.


Submission deadline: June 15, 2015 (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 securely connecting people and devices. Wireless networks include cellular networks, sensor networks, ad-hoc networks, WiFi, WiMax, Bluetooth, and more.

Technical issues are found in the protocol stack from the physical layer to the application layer, beginning with security and including efficiency, 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 which 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:
