RASEP 2011


Crete, Greece, Oct 17-21, 2011 (exact date to be announced)

http://onthemove-conferences.org/index.php/rasep2011 co-located with OTM 2011


A rational network can be defined as a network in which rational (self interested) participants have no reason to deviate from the actual network intended purposes (critical or not). To this regard, the exploration of social phenomena is under consideration as a major foundation for encountering the enforced necessity of cooperation in self-organized ad-hoc environments. Such environments are characterized by rational selfish participants and the absence of trusted third parties. Recent approaches apply evolutionary social-inspired games and techniques to formally prove the existence and maintenance of cooperation patterns within digital communities. The spirit of this workshop is to gather researchers and experts in wired and wireless networks but also from other disciplines like economics, biology, psychology and sociology, having an interest in this type of formal reasoning about behaviour, cooperation and evolution of ad-hoc networks. The workshop intent is to bring together the most novel research findings and the latest advances in ad-hoc network formal analysis.


The goal of this workshop is to collect current advances in formal methods and techniques, applied to the study of ad-hoc and self-organized networks which are heavily dependent on the cooperation of the nodes involved. Such formal frameworks must serve to reason about one or more aspects related to node behaviour, node nature, node interactions, node security, node privacy, network lifecycle, network performance, network security, network privacy, etc.

This workshop will focus on the formal validation of both, new or already existing security and privacy enhancing network protocols. The proposed formalisms could be specific to a particular type of network (Manet, Vanet, P2P, Wireless, Sensor, Social, etc.) or they could conform a more global framework in which to study common network and node features. Furthermore, within the scope of this workshop are any works on the formal analysis of ad-hoc network evolution over a period of time or at a particular single point in time. The proposed frameworks can be of different nature, based on Game Theory, Evolutionary Game Theory, Graphs Theory, Artificial Intelligence, Equivalence Checking, Model Checking Theorem, Formal Languages, Formal Logics, etc.


Topics may include, but are not limited to, the following:

- Formal models based on game theory or evolutionary game theory.
- Applications of evolutionary algorithms for the study of ad-hoc and self-organized networks.
- Formal framework for the study of critical networks and communications.
- Biological foundations and self-adaptation techniques.
- Evolutionary strategies based on Bayesian networks.
- Congestion and routing games, dynamic topology formation in networks.
- Incentive mechanisms, rational resource allocation.
- Equilibrium, evolution and stability network analysis.
- Privacy and security in rational networks.
- Rational energy management of sensor nets.
- Formal models based on graphs.
- Formal study of Trust-based networks.
- Models based on incentives or coalitions schemes.
