Chandramouli co-chairs IEEE GLOBECOM workshop


Professor to co-chair workshop on Adaptive Wireless Networks

HOBOKEN, N.J. -- Dr. Rajarathnam Chandramouli, a professor of electrical/computer engineering at Stevens Institute of Technology, will co-chair the Second IEEE International Workshop on Adaptive Wireless Networks (AWiN) during the IEEE GLOBECOM 2005 Conference, November 28, in St. Louis, Mo.

Chandramouli co-founded the AWiN workshop, the intent of which is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to present their ideas on using adaptive/online/real-time algorithms for optimizing mobile wireless computing and networking.

"Adaptation in mobile wireless networks is motivated by several factors," said Chandramouli, "such as time-varying channel conditions, network traffic, mobility, resource constraints, and vulnerability to attacks. An adaptive algorithm/protocol makes decisions for the future based solely on past and current information. These decisions could be, for example, choosing the transmission band in a spectrum agile wireless network; user scheduling and/or routing depending on link and traffic conditions; wake-up/sleep decisions in a battery constrained sensor network; and so on.

"Adaptive protocols have been observed to improve the throughput, utilization and other performance factors."

The topics of interest include (but are not limited to) adaptive link layer error control; dynamic spectrum access; cognitive radio; online algorithms and competitive analysis; application layer rate control (e.g., image/video streaming); adaptive scheduling algorithms; middleware support; wireless security; and ad hoc and sensor network applications.

Submissions are now being accepted, and authors must submit original, not previously published contributions via email to [email protected] with subject line "AWiN Submission." Manuscripts must be in PDF format and are limited to five pages (max) in two-column IEEE style format.

Important Dates: Manuscript due, September 15, 2005; author notification, October 1, 2005; final manuscripts due, October 7, 2005. This year marks the 48th annual IEEE Global Telecommunications Conference. GLOBECOM 2005 is sponsored by the IEEE Communication Society, St. Louis IEEE Section and the IEEE Region 5. The St. Louis area is a major center for the global telecommunications industry and serves as home to many of the largest corporations and also a large number of smaller firms in this industry.

The theme of GLOBECOM 2005, "Discovery, Past and Future" characterizes the continuing pervasiveness of telecommunications in all aspects of global society, industry, and government.
