Sixth Nordic Workshop on System & Network Optimization for Wireless


The Sixth Nordic Workshop on System and Network Optimization for Wireless (SNOW) aims at bringing together researchers and students from the academia and industry working in wireless networking. The scope of the workshop is broad and intended to accommodate a wide variety of backgrounds, attitudes, and ideas in wireless communications ranging from cellular broadband to ad hoc / mesh networking, and from the physical up to the application layers.
We welcome contributions within a broad range of wireless networking and cross-layer optimization, from fundamental information theoretic results to considerations for multimedia quality of service. Our goal is to have a single track meeting with lively scientific discussions and fruitful exchange of research views and perspectives. The program will be organized to promote networking activities between the participants including daily social outdoors activities, primarily skiing.
