Self-Organization in Mobile Networking Systems

Description

Current mobile communication and networking systems, such as cellular network, wireless local area network, ad hoc network, and vehicular network, require manual configuration and centralized control for both deployment and operation. Such a paradigm would not be so feasible in future mobile networking systems, where a tremendous number of embedded devices and everyday items will be interconnected by various wireless technologies. One of the important design features for these future systems is the so-called self-x functions including self-configuration, self-optimization, self-adaption, self-healing, and self-protection. These self-organizing functions can reduce the network deployment time, save the operational costs, enhance the network performance, and facilitate network management without human involvement. For this reason, the self-organization in networks has become an interesting research topic and still needs to be investigated for future mobile networking systems.

We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles on recent self-organizing algorithms, protocols, and applications in various mobile networking systems.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Self-organization in mobile cellular networks
  • Self-organization in mobile ad hoc networks
  • Self-organization in wireless sensor networks
  • Self-organization in intelligent transportation systems
  • Distributed protocols and algorithms for self-organizing networks: physical layer algorithm, medium access control, resource management, clustering, routing, transport, and service discovery
  • Bioinspired algorithms for self-organizing networks
  • Applications for self-organizing networking systems
