  • Sys­tem and pro­tocol aspects of net­work sys­tems: net­work cod­ing, cach­ing, dis­trib­uted stor­age in net­works as well as coex­ist­ence of het­ero­gen­eous wire­less sys­tems
  • Archi­tec­ture and design (e.g. includ­ing the­ory and algorithms for optimal resource alloc­a­tion, com­bin­at­or­ial/ dis­trib­uted optim­iz­a­tion, mod­el­ling and per­form­ance ana­lysis, queuing the­ory, game the­ory, graph the­ory)
  • Net­work­ing sys­tems (e.g. includ­ing soft­ware- hard­ware co-designed archi­tec­tures, net­work devices, soft­ware radio test­beds, low-power embed­ded sys­tems, proof of concept based on exist­ing air Inter­faces)
  • Wire­less net­works espe­cially real- time net­works for Cyber Phys­ical sys­tems (e.g. body/on body net­works, sup­port­ing eHealth applic­a­tions, vehicu­lar net­works)

Proven achieve­ments in both the­or­et­ical and exper­i­mental research is required.
