The complexity of mobile, ad hoc, and wireless networks requires thoroughly founded models capturing their essential characteristics and new optimization techniques building upon such models. Insights into both the theoretical aspects of these problems as well as practical methods and tools are necessary. This conference—building upon the two successful WiOpt workshops—intends to bring together researchers and practitioners working on optimization issues from different perspectives, including performance analysis, mobile networking, wireless communication, and optimization theory.

Contributions to this conference should show new modeling and optimization techniques suitable for mobile/wireless networks or innovative applications of these techniques to improve network operation. Topics of interest include, but are not limited:
Modeling techniques and tools for mobile/wireless networks
Performance characterisation and optimisation of mobile/wireless networks and systems
Mobile network optimisation: Applications, algorithms, and tools
Protocol design for optimal mobile network utilisation
Models and optimization approaches for energy efficiency, QoS, bandwidth economy and
other aspects of mobile/wireless networks
Models and optimization techniques for non-standard network paradigms like sensor, vehicular, body area networks
Security and co-operation models for mobile networks
Pricing and incentives in mobile and ad-hoc networks

Papers should be submitted as extended abstracts of up to 8 pages
