Call For Papers (pdf)

Research in wireless networking is rapidly becoming more experimental. Research prototypes are being developed for systems ranging from large-scale sensor networks to high-speed wireless access networks. Moreover experimentation and measurement studies are being performed with off-the-shelf hardware and operational testbeds.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together experimentalist researchers from diverse backgrounds including wireless hardware platforms, wireless communications, wireless testbeds, and measurement of deployed wireless systems. The workshop will provide a forum for exchange of ideas, challenges, and work-in-progress discussions between both the wireless and wireline measurement communities. The workshop will leave a large space to discussion and possible coordination.
