Call for papers

The focus theme of this workshop is Wireless Mesh Networks -- A Viable Alternative.
Today, the new and emerging form of fully distributed wireless networks -- Wireless Mesh Networks appear to be providing a viable alternative for next generation wireless networking. Wireless Mesh Networks have applications ranging from civilian wireless Internet applications to tactical and emergency response applications. The flexibility and inexpensiveness of Wireless Mesh Networks add another dimension to their acceptability. Though the Wireless Mesh Networks appear as a viable alternative to the existing wireless infrastructure, many problems require research effort in order to meet the expected success in wireless mesh networking. Some of the important problems in wireless mesh networking are network architectural solutions for throughput capacity and network scalability, protocol design for efficiency and scalability, research solutions for security, trust, and fault tolerance, and time sensitive traffic support.

This workshop focuses on the core issues of design, analysis, experimentation of end-to-end solutions that can make wireless mesh networks a viable solution for next generation wireless networking. We invite researchers and practitioners to submit theoretical and experimental results on topics of interest included but not limited to the following:
