Call for Papers

ACM/IEEE MSWiM 2006 is the 9-th Annual International Symposium on Modeling, Analysis and Simulation of Wireless and Mobile Systems. MSWiM is an international forum dedicated to high level discussion of Wireless and Mobile systems, networks, algorithms and applications, with an emphasis on rigorous performance evaluation. MSWiM is a highly selective conference that is recognized as one of the most prestigious sources of innovative ideas and breakthroughs in the field. MSWiM 2006 will be held October 2 to 6, 2006, in sunny Terremolinos, in Spain.

Authors are encouraged to submit full papers presenting new research related to the theory or practice of all aspects of modeling, analysis and simulation of mobile and wireless systems. Submitted papers must not have been published elsewhere nor currently be under review by another conference or journal.

Topics related to wireless and mobile network Modeling, Analysis, Design, and Simulation comprise, but are not limited to:

  • Analytical Models
  • Design methodologies
  • Performance evaluation and modeling
  • Wireless Network Protocols
  • Prototypes and Testbeds
  • Survivability and reliability evaluation
  • Traffic measurements and models for wireless networks
  • RF channel capacity modeling and analysis
  • QoS provisioning in wireless and mobile networks
  • Security and privacy of mobile/wireless systems
  • Algorithms and protocols for energy efficent operation
  • New simulation languages and tools for wireless systems
  • Parallel and distributed simulation of wireless systems
  • Formal methods for analysis of wireless systems
  • Wireless Multimedia Systems
  • Wireless PANs, LANs
  • Ad Hoc Networks
  • Sensor and Actuator Networks: models and visions
  • Pervasive computing and emerging models
  • Integration of wired and wireless systems
  • Mobility modeling and management
  • Mobile applications, system software and algorithms

Paper Submission and Publication

High-quality original papers are solicited. Papers must be unpublished and must not be submitted for publication elsewhere. All papers will be reviewed by Technical Program Committee members and other experts active in the field to ensure high quality and relevance to the conference. Paper length should be no more than 12 pages, double column, ACM style including tables and figures. Only Postscript and PDF formats are accepted. Short papers might be included in the technical program to complete it and foster discussion and idea exchange.
