The performance of wireless networks depends critically on the spatial configuration of the transmitters, receivers and relaying nodes. As a result, the modeling of such networks requires methods and tools from point process theory, stochastic geometry and random graph theory. The art of modeling wireless networks is strongly multi-disciplinary, combining these spatial, stochastic tools with information and communication theory, networking theory, combinatorics, and game theory. SpaSWiN is historically the first workshop specifically devoted to the use of spatial stochastic models for improved design of wireless networks. Building on the success of the seven previous venues of the workshop: in Riva del Garda (2005), Boston (2006), Limassol (2007), Berlin (2008), Seoul (2009), Avignon (2010), Princeton (2011), and Paderborn (2012), the goal of SpaSWiN 2013 is to bring together researchers from the various disciplines involved in spatial models of wireless communications. Please join us in Tsukuba Science City, Japan, on May 13, 2013.

Call for papers

The technical program committee is soliciting contributions that employ spatial stochastic models - including, but not limited to, point processes, stochastic geometry, discrete and continuum percolation, and random graphs - to design and analyze wireless networks. All aspects and technologies of wireless networking will be considered, including (but not limited to): ad hoc, cellular, mesh, sensor, mobile, hybrid, and two-tier networks; models for coverage, connectivity, capacity, delay, energy efficiency; distributed routing and scheduling protocols and algorithms; network information theory; power and topology control; mobility models.

Authors are invited to submit papers via EDAS. Submitted manuscripts should have 5 to 8 pages, including figures, appendix and bibliography. They should be formatted in two columns with a point size greater or equal to 10pt. Submissions will be done electronically in Adobe PDF format. Accepted papers will be published in IEEE Xplore.
