CWN 2020 will take place at Thessaloniki, Greece, on October 12, 2020, collocated with the 16th International Conference on Wireless and Mobile Computing, Networking and Communications (WiMob 2020).
With the rapid proliferation of wireless devices and services, the mobile Internet has experienced exponential growth in recent years, which poses potential challenges for mobile operators, especially in terms of quality of service provisioning. Cooperation in wireless network emerged as a promising strategy to improve the overall performance by resource sharing, increasing data rates and network throughput. Furthermore, cooperation has the potential to increase energy efficiency, network coverage and reliability.
The aim of this workshop is to provide a space for researchers and technologists to present new ideas and contributions in cooperative wireless networks, a key element for the advance of the Future Internet. The concept of cooperation can be applied to a wide scope of technologies, systems and applications, in order to achieve an efficient use of the spectrum (cognitive radio), extended network coverage (cooperative diversity, multi-hop relaying), improved performance and reliability (network coding, cross-layer protocols, network slicing) and user safety (vehicular networks, emergency networks), among other aspects.
