Call for Papers!

The 1st ACM Workshop on hot topics in wireless networks is focused on disruptive wireless technologies and systems that can enable orders of magnitude improvements in performance and novel wireless applications. Our goal is to provide a launching pad for bold and visionary ideas, and bring together experts in hardware, physical layer, and wireless systems to address core technical challenges in these emerging wireless technologies.

Focus areas for this year include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Backscatter (and other low power) communication for next-generation sensors
  • mmWave technologies (e.g. 30 GHz and 60 GHz) for substantial throughput at range
  • Highly directional transmissions for throughput and spatial reuse
  • Visible Light Communications
  • Nanoscale wireless for implantables and micro-sensors
  • Wirelessly powered devices
  • Dynamic spectrum sharing
  • Physical-layer Innovations
  • Cross-layer Wireless Networking
  • Sensing using Wireless Signals

We solicit position papers of five or fewer pages that propose new directions of research in wireless, advocate disruptive ideas, report on noteworthy experience in an emerging area, or generate lively discussion around an important topic. In order to promote lively discussion, we encourage forward-looking submissions, as opposed to mature work. We also encourage submissions on new open wireless platforms that can bootstrap exploration of the design space by the broader wireless networking community.
