The 13th ACM Workshop on Wireless Network

Testbeds, Experimental evaluation & CHaracterization

In recent years, it clearly emerged an increasing importance of experimental validation of innovative wireless solutions and applications, due to the increasing complexity of the wireless ecosystem. The WiNTECH workshop explicitly deals with methodological and technical issues that have to be faced for defining, running, controlling and benchmarking experiments on wireless solutions. The workshop, that this year reach the 13th edition, has a consolidated tradition for bringing together an important number of researchers and industry players working in different aspects of experimental wireless communications. The workshop will serve as a forum for sharing experiences and results with real testbeds, experimental evaluation, prototyping and empirical characterization of wireless technologies.

The workshop will facilitate discussions on unresolved issues in the field, such as new laboratory methodologies, key real-life limitations of current and novel wireless technologies that have emerged over the past few years (including mmWave, underwater, 5G, IoT, wearables, and SDN), as well as key challenges facing the wireless networking of the future. WiNTECH has an inherent experimental nature and thus will include a relatively large demo session where real testbeds, deployments and prototypes can be shown and discussed. Moreover, the research community will be challenged to show us their latest, breakthrough, chair-rocking and mind-blowing innovations, through the demonstration competition.

All the regular papers will be considered for the Best Paper Award.

In additional to the regular papers, the program of WiNTECH 2019 will also include:

  • a keynote speech of a renowned researcher
  • a session of demos and posters, which remains a WiNTECH highlight
  • a panel on a specific topic within the scope of WiNTECH that gathers key experts in this area
