The RAWNET 2012 workshop will focus on resource allocation, cooperation, and competition in both static and mobile wireless networks. The workshop encourages papers with novel approaches to management of resources such as spectrum, bandwidth, power and energy, storage, and caching capacity, and computational power. Cooperation and competition schemes across the protocol layers will be considered, ranging from the physical layer up to the application layer. Of particular interest are cooperation mechanisms for large-scale wireless networks that allow for efficient allocation of network resources; energy management; processing, dissemination, and location of information; and distributed computation.

Original contributions in resource allocation and cooperation for large-scale wireless networks are solicited in, but not limited to, the following topics of interest:

  • Data dissemination in large-scale wireless networks
  • Energy management in wireless networks
  • Wireless online social networks
  • Economics-inspired resource management and mechanism design
  • Cooperation schemes for resource management in wireless networks
  • Game theoretic approaches for wireless networks
  • Distributed and in-network computation in wireless networks
  • Distributed scheduling and resource allocation in large-scale wireless networks
  • Physical layer/MAC layer cooperation in large-scale wireless networks
  • Cooperation in physical and MAC layers
  • Fairness vs performance trade-offs in wireless networks
  • Effects of partial and incomplete state information in cooperative systems, and robust designs
