The performance of wireless networks depends critically on the spatial configuration of the transmitter and receiver nodes. As a result, the modeling and performance analysis of such networks requires methods and tools from point process theory, stochastic geometry and random graph theory. The art of modeling wireless networks is strongly multi-disciplinary, combining these spatial, stochastic tools with information and communication theory, networking theory, combinatorics and game theory.

SpaSWiN is historically the first workshop specially devoted to the use of spatial stochastic models for improved design of wireless networks. Building on the success of the 13 previous venues of the workshop, the goal of SpaSWiN 2018 is to bring together researchers from the various disciplines involved in spatial models of wireless communications. Please join us in Shanghai, China!
