The 4th International Workshop on Content Caching and Delivery in Wireless Networks (CCDWN)

June 15,  2020,

University of Thessaly

Call for Papers

The constantly increasing mobile data traffic, the proliferation of multimedia services, and the fast emergence of low-latency services challenge the performance and even the economic viability of today’s wireless networks. At the same time, fascinating developments, such as the software-based control of networks, the deployment of multi-tier wireless systems, and the interplay of caching with communication signals, create fresh opportunities for optimizing the network operation through storage resources. Indeed, storage and caching can play today an instrumental role in the success of wireless networks by increasing the performance of the offered services, reducing the Operating and Capital Expenditures, and by enabling new innovative business models.

The Content Caching and Delivery in Wireless Networks (CCDWN) 2020 workshop aspires to bring together experts from academia and industry to discuss the latest developments in the following, non-exhaustive, list of topics:

Information-theoretic caching analysis

  • Fundamental limits of coded caching
  • Coded caching design with practical constraints
  • Scaling laws of cache networks

Caching in beyond-5G wireless systems

  • HetNet and device-to-device caching
  • Cloud and wireless edge caching solutions
  • Caching and cross-layer optimization
  • Secure caching and privacy-constrained caching
  • Caching in high mobility networks

Content caching and delivery

  • Design of (elastic) content delivery networks
  • Algorithms for storage installation and content placement
  • Novel aspects of video caching and streaming
  • Caching economics, cooperation and incentive mechanisms for caching
  • Caching models for information centric networks

Data analytics for caching

  • Analysis of request data, time-varying content popularity models
  • Popularity estimation and prediction of viral content
  • Interplay of social networks and caching
  • Learning algorithms for caching optimization

Caching for (Edge) Computing

  • Deployment of services at the wireless network edge
  • Caching of code libraries and network functions
  • Service chains and caching in wireless networks

CCDWN ‘20 will be co-located with WiOpt 2020 and take place on June 15, 2020.
