This symposium intends to bring together researchers and practitioners working on modeling and optimization of wireless network design and operations. It welcomes original, high-quality works on different perspectives, including performance analysis and simulation, algorithms and protocol design, optimization theory and application, information theoretic analysis including capacity scaling, for all forms of wireless networks: cellular, metropolitan, ad hoc, delay-tolerant, mesh, sensor networks as well as any combination of these.

Contributions to this conference should improve the state-of-the-art in design, analysis, dimensioning and operations of wireless network by providing insights into theoretical aspects as well as providing practical methods and tools. All forms of wireless networks are of interest: from cellular wide-area and local-area networks to dense and sparse ad-hoc networks; domain specific vehicular, public-transport and personal-area networks as well as application-specific sensor networks.

Technical papers describing original, previously unpublished research, not currently under review by another conference or journal, are solicited.

Topics of relevance include, but are not limited to, the following ones:

* Modeling, simulations and performance analysis
* Optimization of network design
* Optimal control of network operations
* Network protocols design
* Mobility modeling and management
* Scalability and manageability of network architectures
* Pricing and incentives
* Opportunistic and cooperative communications
* Network and multi-user information theory
* Asymptotic system properties (capacity, connectivity, coverage, delay)
* Energy efficiency
* Cognitive radio
