Monday 29 November 2004 • 8:30 – 17:00 • Room: Reunion E
W03: Computer-aided Modeling, Analysis, and Design of Communication Links and Networks

The workshop will consist of two sessions:

Session on CAMAD for Wireless Network Optimization: The session on CAMAD for Wireless Network Optimization will focus on the use of computer-aided methodologies for optimization of wireless network organization. The topics of interest are mainly related to novel analytical and simulation approaches to modeling and analysis of wireless networks. The session will consist of 8-10 papers and mainly focus on invited works, with presentation given from relevant experts in the field of wireless network analysis and modeling. Additional papers will be accepted from an open call.
Session on CAMAD for xDSL TR-59 Architecture Performance evaluation: The session on CAMAD for xDSL TR-59 Architecture Performance Evaluation will focus on the use of simulation techniques to validate the TR-59 Architecture for xDSL networks proposed by the DSL Forum. Topics of particular interest include QoS options identified in TR-59 for hierarchical rate shaping, and policing, dynamic MTU re-negotiation, Cross-layer QoS interactions, QoS across trust boundaries, and policy enabled xDSL networks.
2004 is the 10th IEEE Workshop on Computer-Aided Modeling, Analysis, and Design of Communication Links and Networks
