Scope of the Workshop

The scope of the CoCoNet6 workshop is to bring together a highly qualified group of people with interest in cooperative and cognitive wireless networks. Cooperation is a major subject in research in the wireless communication community as it has been identified as one of the underlying principles for future wireless communication systems. Cooperation, altruistic or non-altruistic, is the basis to break up the cellular concept and enrich it by multi hop, peer-to-peer, or cloud functionalities. The workshop will highlight the newest trends in this emerging area, complementing it with first practical implementations and demonstrations in this field. New technologies and concepts such as network coding and mobile clouds are the driving forces for cooperative and cognitive networks. Besides the technical insights, the workshop will encourage the participants to discuss among each other. The workshop is seeking papers for oral presentations and papers which will be presented in poster sessions possibly accompanied with demonstrations or test-beds.

Keynote Speech:

Advanced and Tunable Network Coding for the Real World by Daniel Lucani, Aalborg University

ABSTRACT: Network coding (NC) provides a disruptive approach to network operation and promises significant gains in throughput, delay, and energy as well as simplifying protocol design. However, its transition to practical systems has been hindered by the added computational complexity required in network devices to encode, recode, and decode packets if the device acts as a source, intermediate node, or receiver, respectively. The fact that NC has an all-or-nothing tendency, i.e., deliver all packets in a batch or none, which is ill suited to manage heterogeneous devices and services, and that it requires a different understanding of the objectives and capabilities of NC-aware protocol design constitute additional issues for its implementation in practical systems. This talk discusses these critical practical issues with support from real world implementation results and shows the potential of advanced and tunable NC strategies to (i) reduce computational effort, while preserving performance; (ii) support heterogeneous devices, in terms of computational capabilities, data requirements, and channel conditions; and (iii) provide simple, built-in protocol design.

Submission Guidelines:

IEEE CoCoNet Workshop accepts only novel, previously unpublished papers in the area of Cognitive and Cooperative Wireless Networks. Prospective authors are encouraged to submit a 5-page IEEE conference style paper (including all text, figures, and references) through EDAS submission system (http://www.edas.info ). (If you have any problems during submission, please contact: ff@es.aau.dk). Accepted papers must be presented at the workshop by one of the authors. The presenter must register for the workshop before the deadline given for author registration. Failure to register before the deadline will result in automatic withdrawal of the paper from the workshop proceedings and the program. Furthermore we encourage to submit full paper description of potential demonstration in the area of CoCoNet to be presented at the event. Those papers will be presented together with the demonstrator itself in a poster session. All papers (oral session and demonstrations) selected for publication will be published together with IEEE ICC 2014 proceedings and available on IEEE Xplore database.
