The 10th ACM International Workshop on Wireless Network Testbeds, Experimental evaluation & CHaracterization

In recent years, some wireless technologies (e.g., Wi-Fi, sensor networks) have matured to the point of finding wide acceptance in the real-world and leading to many new and interesting applications. At the same time, several new networking and radio technologies (e.g., dynamic spectrum access, UWB) are emerging to address the performance limitations of existing technologies and make wireless networking more ubiquitous. Realistic evaluation of such a diverse set of technologies and their mutual interactions will play a major role in identifying the key performance bottlenecks, thus shaping future advances in wireless technology. The importance of testbed-based evaluation of wireless network protocols/applications as well as characterization of real-world aspects using traces from operational networks is gaining wider recognition in the mobile and wireless networking research community. This workshop intends to bring together researchers working in the broad area of experimental wireless networking. This workshop will serve as a forum to share new ideas/experiences in all experimental aspects of wireless networks and systems, and facilitate discussions of key unresolved challenges in this area.

Test of Time Award

To celebrate the 10th edition of the workshop, one paper from its past editions will be selected to receive the Test of Time Award, recognizing its high impact on the experimental wireless networking research. All papers published from 2006 up to 2010 will be considered. The selection will be made by the Steering Committee.
