Invitation:

Please consider to contribute to and distribute to the appropriate groups
the following
CALL FOR PAPERS, TUTORIALS, PANELS
=================================

MESH 2008, International Conference on Advances in Mesh Networks

August 25-31, 2008 - Cap Esterel, France
General page: http://www.iaria.org/conferences2008/MESH08.html


Call for Papers: http://www.iaria.org/conferences2008/CfPMESH08.html

Submission deadline: April 5, 2008


Submissions will be peer-reviewed, published by IEEE CPS, posted in IEEE
Digital Library, and indexed with the major indexes.

Extended versions of selected papers will be invited for specialized
journals.

The wireless mesh networks came to rescue the challenging issues related
for predicting the location of a user and choosing the position of access
points in wireless distributed systems. Basically mesh networks guarantee
the connectivity through a multihop wireless backbone formed by stationary
routers. There is no differentiation between uplink and downlink, but
performance depends on the routing protocols. There are several
challenging issues for properly exploiting wireless mesh networks'
features, such as fast-link quality variation, channel assignments,
performance, QoS-routing, scalability, slow/high speed mobile users,
service differentiation, and others.

MESH 2008 is an inaugural event addressing the most challenging aspects
for designing and deploying mesh networks. Contributions concerning
unpublished results, lessons learnt, work in progress, positions, and
future research are expected to be submitted on the following topics (but
not limited to):

          o Frameworks
          o Wireless interference models
          o Topology models
          o Large-scale networks
          o Real-time and non-real-time communications
          o Channel assignment schemes
          o Resource allocation
          o Centralized and distributed scheduling
          o Performance
          o Static/mobile scenarios
          o Access control
          o Service differentiation

      Protocols
          o Protocol interference models
          o Access and routing protocols
          o Single-channel multihop / multi-channel routing
          o Joint routing and scheduling
          o Routing metrics
          o Multichannel routing
          o Quality of Services routing
          o Multimedia-centric routing
          o Fast-link quality metrics
          o Bandwidth estimation
