Wireless ad hoc, sensor, along with ubiquitous networks have recently witnessed their fastest growth period ever in history, and this trend is likely to continue for the foreseeable future. However, as such networks become increasingly complex, performance modelling and evaluation will play a crucial part in their design process to ensure their successful deployment and exploitation in practice.

This workshop will bring together scientists, engineers, and practitioners to share and exchange their experiences, discuss challenges, and report state-of-the-art and in-progress research on all aspects of wireless ad hoc, sensor, and ubiquitous networks with a specific emphasis on their performance evaluation and analysis.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Probabilistic or predictive performance models and analysis of ad hoc, sensor, pervasive and ubiquitous networks
  • RF channel capacity modeling and analysis
  • Traffic models for ad hoc, sensor networks
  • Mobility modeling and management
  • Analytical modeling
  • Simulation methods
  • Tracing and trace analysis
  • Performance measurement, monitoring and evaluation tools for ad hoc, sensor and ubiquitous networks
  • Software tools for automatic network performance and evaluation
  • Network performance improvements by optimization algorithms
  • Energy-efficient protocols for ad hoc and sensor networks
  • Wireless mesh networks
  • Case studies demonstrating the role of performance evaluation in the design of ad hoc, sensor and ubiquitous networks
