The 3rd IEEE Workshop on Hot Topics in Mesh Networking
The huge advances of wireless broadband technologies lay the foundation of a future where ubiquitous wireless network access will be anywhere at anytime. Wireless mesh networks are expected to be a key element of this future by providing a highly scalable, reliable and cost-effective wireless backbone to mobile devices, through a multi-hop wireless communication system. Although significant advances have taken place in the last few years, open questions and technical challenges still remain, in addition to how wireless mesh networks will integrate with and/or influence existing mobile and fixed broadband networks in order to create an integrated infrastructure that supports emerging services.
This workshop aims to bring together the technologist and researchers who share interest in the area of wireless mesh networks. The main purpose is to promote discussions on recent advances in the analysis design and implementation of systems, protocols and services for next generation mobile mesh networks. It also aims at increasing the synergy between academic and industry professionals working in this area. We plan to seek papers that address theoretical, experimental, and work in-progress at all layers of mesh networks, from application to physical layer.
