International Workshop on Device-to-Device (D2D) Communication With and Without Infrastructure:
Collocated with IEEE GLOBECOM 2013, 9-13 December 2013, Atlanta, USA
Device-to-Device (D2D) communication has gained increasing popularity very recently, not only among researchers in academia and industries but also among standardization bodies. D2D communication enables two or more mobile devices in proximity of each other to establish direct local links, either in an autonomous manner to form an ad hoc network or coordinated by a base station to perform direct data transfer. The benefits of D2D communication include ubiquitous computing and communication, traffic offload from cellular networks, improved energy efficiency and coverage extension, peer-to-peer communication supporting social networks etc.
However, there are many issues to be addressed before the concept of D2D communication can be implemented and commercialized. These problems include for example how to find device proximity, how to manage interference and how to control link quality, how to achieve energy efficiency for neighbor discovery and multi-hop communication establishment, etc. The main objective of this workshop is to bring together the state-of-the-art results in the field of D2D communication, including both cellular-coordinated approaches and distributed ad hoc networking solutions, and to share knowledge to trigger D2D communication from concept to reality. The topics to be addressed by this workshop include both physical layer and networking issues as well as envisaged services and applications.
Topics of interest cover all aspects related to D2D communication with and without infrastructure, including results for both cellular-coordinated approaches and distributed ad hoc networking solutions from academia, industries as well as standardization bodies. In particular, this workshop solicits contributions on the following (but not limited to) topics:
- Frequency reuse and spectrum sharing for D2D communication
- Energy-harvesting aware protocols for D2D communication
- Power and interference management
- Resource allocation and optimization for D2D communication in cellular networks
- Neighbor discovery and link maintenance
- Cognitive and cooperative D2D communication
- MAC mechanisms for distributed and central-controlled D2D networks
- Routing protocols for multi-hop D2D networks
- Device-initiated versus BS-coordinated link establishment
- WiFi Direct based implementations and applications
- LTE Direct based implementations and applications
- Programs and apps for D2D communication based on smartphones
- Business models for D2D communication
- Paper submission: 25 June 2013
- Acceptance notification: 1 September 2013
- Camera-ready: 1 October 2013
- Workshop date: 9 (or 13) December 2013
Authors are invited to submit original contributions that were not previously published or currently under review by any other workshop, conference, or journal. Papers need to be uploaded to the EDAS GLOBECOM 2013 workshop submission link (http://edas.info/) of this workshop, and should follow the GLOBECOM 2013 paper submission guidelines.
All submissions should be written in English with a maximum paper length of Six (6) printed pages (10-point font) including figures (maximum 1 additional page is allowed with over-length page charge of USD100 if accepted). All accepted papers will be published in IEEE Xplore together with IEEE GLOBECOM 2013 proceedings. IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if it is not presented at the conference.
