Free Networks Italy – Ninux Day 2013 Call For Papers

The Ninux Day (the only day that lasts a weekend), organized by the wireless community network, will be held on November 1,2,3, 2013 at Fusolab 2.0, in Rome.

The aim is to gather under the same roof members of Italian and European wireless community networks and all who are interested in:
 * the Net as a common
 * spontaneous networking, bottom-up
 * city networks
 * wireless mesh networks
 * routing protocols
 * networking-oriented operating systems
 * distributed management and monitoring
 * distributed and decentralized services
 * resilient networks
 * community automanagement
 * legal aspects of community networks and wireless networks
 * artistic expressions linked to community networks or wireless networks

If you want to propose a talk or a practical workshop on these topics, of the maximum length of 45 minutes, send an e-mail to with a 50-100 words abstract and a short bio before October 2, 2013.

WiOpt’08 – International Symposium on Modeling and Optimization in Mobile, Ad Hoc, and Wireless Networks

(vie Thomas Hirsch)
Vielleicht interessant für den ein oder anderen, der der Wissenschaftswelt einmal über seine Erfahrungen und Ergebnisse im Freifunk-Netz berichten möchte.

Was bringts:
– Feedback. Das Papier wird auf jeden Fall von drei Leuten aus verschiedenen Fachgebieten quergelesen. Anschließend darf man einen Vortrag vor noch mehr Leuten halten, und wird im Konferenzjournal abgedruckt. Potentiell erreicht man also viele Leute, die Ahnung von Mesh-Dingen haben, Interessante Dinge  mit Funknetzen machen, oder sich das ganze auch mal nur aus der Mathematikerbrille betrachten.
– Aufmerksamkeit über den eigenen Kiez hinaus.

6th Intl. Symposium on Modeling and Optimization in Mobile, Ad Hoc, and Wireless Networks March 31 – April 4, Berlin, Germany

Scope of the Symposium
This symposium intends to bring together researchers and practitioners working on optimization of wireless network design and operations. It welcomes works on different perspectives, including performance analysis and simulation, protocol design, numerical communication and optimization theory, for all forms of wireless networks: cellular, wide, metropolitan, local and personal-area networks, dense and sparse ad-hoc networks, domain specific vehicular, public-transport, application-specific sensor networks, as well as any combination of these.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Modeling, simulations and measurements
* Protocol design
* Spectrum allocation
* Security and intrusion detection
* Pricing and incentives
* Scalability, manageability and optimization
* System capacity and performance
* Mobility and multihoming
* Opportunistic and cooperative scheduling
* Cognitive radio
* Interference control
* Energy efficiency


The submission format for the papers is an extended abstract, up to eight pages long. Please use the IEEE Transactions format, 11 pt character size, one column text, one-and-a-half line spacing, letter paper. This page budget should contain all figures, tables, references, etc. The extended abstract should also include a brief abstract of up to 150 words. The submission will be handled via EDAS ( ). Only PDF files are acceptable; please make sure that the paper prints without problems (take care to embed all required fonts, etc.). Adjunct Workshops Several one-day workshops are planned to accompany the main WiOpt
