Call for Papers

The 4th ACM Workshop on Hot Topics of Wireless is focused on disruptive wireless technologies and systems that can enable orders of magnitude improvements in performance and novel wireless applications. Our goal is to provide a launching pad for bold and visionary ideas, and bring together experts in hardware, physical layer, networks, and systems to address core technical challenges in these emerging wireless technologies. HotWireless will provide a venue for debating future research agendas, technology trends, and application domains of wireless technology, and for presenting innovative and/or risky ideas that have potential for significant impact.

We solicit position papers of five or fewer pages that propose new directions of research in wireless, advocate disruptive ideas, report on noteworthy experience in an emerging area, or generate lively discussion around an important topic. In order to promote lively discussion, we encourage forward-looking submissions, as opposed to mature work. We also encourage submissions on new open wireless platforms that can bootstrap exploration of the design space by the broader wireless networking community.

Focused areas for this year include, but are not limited to, the following:
