3rd International Workshop on Performance Analysis and Enhancement of Wireless 
Networks (PAEWN'08)
To be held in conjunction with AINA 2008 supported by IEEE Computer Society
GinoWan, Okinawa, Japan, March 25 - 28, 2008

Recent technological developments in wireless communication and mobile networks 
have led to many challenging problems that require new performance evaluation 
tools and methods to keep up with their rapid evolution and increasing complexity. 
This workshop will focus on the development and application of analytical modeling, 
simulation, prototype testbed, and measurement-based performance evaluation 
techniques to the area of wireless communication networks.  
This workshop is intended to provide an international forum for scientists, engineers, 
practitioners, network and mobile users to share and exchange their experiences, 
discuss challenges, present original ideas, and report state-of-the-art and in-progress 
research results on all aspects of performance evaluation of wireless networks and 
mobile computing systems. 
The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
     -- Stochastic modelling and performance evaluation of networks
     -- Design and analysis of networks and protocols
     -- Quality of Service provisioning
     -- Medium access control protocols
     -- Admission control and congestion control protocols
     -- Evaluation of reliability and performance guarantees
     -- Performance evaluation of wireless and sensor devices
     -- Security issues 
     -- Traffic models 
     -- Mobility management and handover issues
     -- Resource allocation management 
     -- Routing algorithms 
     -- Simulation models for optimisation of scarce resources 
     -- Integration of ad hoc and sensor networks with broadband wireless 
          network infrastructures
     -- Performance case studies and industrial reports  
     -- Evaluation of existing tools and techniques 
     -- Improvement in system performance through optimization and tuning
     -- Case studies showing the role of evaluation in the design of systems
