Workshop on Sociality in the Wireless Ecosystem

Workshop on Sociality in the Wireless Ecosystem

The special session aims at providing a forum for researchers across computer science, sociology, ecology, operations research, and applied mathematics to present latest results, exchange ideas, and explore possible collaborations. The topics include, but are not limited to, the following.

  • Models of social etiquette in populations of wireless devicesand biological organisms, which incorporate concepts such as sociality, deference, collaboration, incentive, group identity, punishment, debt, autonomy, barter, robustness, risk, kinship, reputation, memory, and connect these local mechanisms with global systemic properties.
  • Models of resource sharing and competition behaviors within populations of wireless devices and biological organisms, including but not limited to those based on economies, auctions, games, sensing, memory, and learning.
  • Models of collaborative and competitive searching and scavenging for spectrum/resources within populations of wireless devices and biological organisms, including but not limited to those based on sensing and learning.
  • Self-organization, adaptation, and emergent phenomena in populations of wireless devices and biological organisms.
  • Inter-group dynamics in populations of wireless devices and biological organisms, including swarm-based approaches.
  • Evolutionary dynamics in populations of wireless devices and biological organisms.
  • All experimental and empirical results obtained from hardware, simulation or laboratory experiments related to any of the topics above.
