Call for Papers


WiOpt is technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Control Systems Society, IEEE Information Theory Society and IFIP. All papers will be published in the IFIP DL open library with Open Access, as well as on IEEE Xplore.

The 18th International Symposium on Modeling and Optimization in Mobile, Ad Hoc, and Wireless Networks solicits high-quality contributions.

WiOpt 2020 aims to bring together state-of-the-art research contributions from different fields in networks. It welcomes original and high-quality submissions related to modeling, performance evaluation, and optimization of networks. The focus includes but is not limited to mobile networks, edge computing, intelligent networks, content-driven networks, cognitive networks, vehicular networks, robotic systems, Internet of Things, etc. We encourage both theoretical contributions and submissions relating to real world empirical measurements and experimental studies.

The areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Modeling, model validation, and performance analysis
  • Scaling laws and fundamental limits
  • Network architectures
  • Protocol design
  • Resource allocation and management
  • Network economics
  • Quality of service
  • Energy efficiency, harvesting, power control and management
  • Security, trust and privacy
  • Network resilience, anomaly detection, and reliability analysis
  • Cross-layer design and optimization / control
  • Measurements and experimental studies
  • Data collection and storage
  • Data analytics for networks
  • Edge computing
  • Caching for content distribution over networks
  • Artificial intelligence for networks
  • Online learning in networks
  • Machine learning and reinforcement learning for networks
  • Game-theory for networks

WiOpt’20 will give one Best Paper Award and one Best Student Paper Award. For the Best Student Paper Award, the first author of the paper needs to be a full-time student at the time of paper submission.
