Call for papers
2nd Workshop on Cellular Networks: Operations, Challenges and Future Design (CellNet) 2013

To be held on June 25, 2013 in Taipei, Taiwan (co-located with ACM MobiSys 2013)

Important dates:
Paper submission: March 27, 2013 11.59pm EST
Notification of acceptance: April 21, 2013
Camera-ready version due: April 28, 2013
Workshop date: June 25, 2013

With the popularity of smart phones and tablets, we are living in an
increasingly mobile world. Third-party mobile applications such as
are rapidly growing everyday and greatly enrich our lives. The eco-system
for mobile applications is vibrant and conducive to open innovation.
An important part of this ecosystem is the underlying connectivity
provided by a cellular network. While innovations in mobile services and applications
have thrived, innovations in the underlying cellular systems are much more limited.
This is partially caused by the closed and monolithic nature of these
networks, where the core design and operational challenges of these networks
are not very accessible to the research community. The goal of this workshop
is to bring together network operators, and academic researchers together to
discuss emerging problems, challenges, and potential solutions in this domain.

To facilitate this discussion and engagement, we would like to solicit technical papers,
including position papers, that are no more than 6-pages long in the standard ACM two-column, 10 point format.
Early work that stimulate discussions are also strongly encouraged. The following is a non-exhaustive list of topics:

- Radio resource allocation and usage profiling
- Cellular network architectures
- Understanding and modeling cellular data traffic
- Billing and pricing models
- Cellular network security and privacy issues
- Cellular network management
- Mobility
- Energy efficiency
- Spectrum shortage
- Protocol design
- Algorithms to improve performance and efficiency
- Role of emerging techniques, such as SDN
