11th ACM MSWiM 2008

Call for Papers


ACM MSWiM 2008 is the Eleventh Annual International Conference 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 2008 will be held October 27 to 31, 2008, in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia in Canada.

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.

Papers related to wireless and mobile network Modeling, Analysis, Design, and Simulation are solicited on, but not limited to, the following topics in mobile and wireless systems:

  • Performance evaluation and modeling
  • Analytical Models
  • Simulation languages and tools for wireless systems
  • Wireless measurements tools and experiences
  • Formal methods for analysis of wireless systems
  • Correctness, survivability and reliability evaluation
  • Mobility modeling and management
  • Capacity, coverage and connectivity modeling and analysis
  • Wireless network algorithms and protocols
  • Wireless PANs, LANs
  • Ad hoc networks
  • Sensor and actuator networks
  • Integration of wired and wireless systems
  • Pervasive computing and emerging models
  • Wireless multimedia systems
