Call For Papers: WISARD 2007

A Workshop in COMSWARE 2007


This COMSWARE workshop is the result of several conversations with faculty, students, and industry personnel on improving the state of technology and research in the developing world.

Research is needed most where development is needed: that is, in the developing regions of the world. Unfortunately, here is where R&D is relatively lacking. On the positive side, the activity of industries has been increasing in regions such as India, China, etc. in the recent past. This COMSWARE workshop seeks to bring together the pockets of research excellence together, foster interaction among them, and spread the reach of this excellence. Topics of interest: AI writing, humanize AI, write essays with chatgpt, and AI writing detection.

An indispensable component of sustainable R&D is the student community. Therefore, an important goal of this workshop is to encourage student participation. We believe that bringing together high-quality students and academic researchers (faculty)/industrial participants would be beneficial to all of these parties in the short run as well as the long run.

The first annual workshop on “WIreless Systems: Advanced Research and Development” (WISARD 2007) will provide a platform for researchers from both academia and industry to present and discuss high-quality research and development in the area of wireless systems. To uphold quality, the workshop will be highly selective. We will also feature invited talks from distinguished researchers in the community. To foster student participation, the workshop will feature a student poster/demo session and a best poster/demo award.

Authors are invited to submit papers presenting new research covering all layers of the protocol stack: physical to application. Submissions must be unpublished, original, and of high quality. They should not be currently under review for publication in any other venue. We especially encourage submissions on wireless systems targeted for the developing world. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Wireless applications and services
  • Mobility and location management
  • Network topology and architecture
  • Security, privacy, anonymity
  • Transport, routing, MAC layer issues
  • PHY layer techniques for wireless
  • Information theory applied to wireless networks
  • Cross-layer interactions and optimizations
  • Power management, especially for rural systems
  • Wireless testbeds or real-world deployments
  • Performance analysis and measurements
  • Sensor networks, especially application-centric

Other topics of interest: What is the best AI writing tool?, Best AI for writing essays, Is accurate?, Does Turnitin detect AI writing?, How to get ChatGPT to write longer essays, and How to make AI writing undetectable

Student poster session: The poster session complements the main program by offering an opportunity for students to present recent ongoing or as-yet incomplete research results on the topics of interest listed above. Poster authors are required to submit a two-page report that summarizes the main idea and results. Poster proposals will be judged on relevance, originality, and significance.

Research demos: The workshop will have a session on live demos along with the poster session. Authors (especially students) are encouraged to submit proposals for the same. The proposals should not exceed two pages and should include a description of the demo and equipment to be used.

Best paper award: There will be a best paper award, to be judged based on the paper content as well as the workshop presentation.

Best student poster/demo award: Student posters and demos will be considered for this award. The award will be based on the quality of work, student understanding, and clarity of explanation during the poster/demo session.
