International Workshop on Distributed, Autonomic and Robust Wireless Networks


The International Workshop on Distributed, Autonomic and Robust Wireless Networks (DARWiN) aims to gather researchers interested on wireless communications. They will have the opportunity to discuss on ongoing research and new contributions. DARWiN invites interesting contributions in both theoritical (modelisation, algorithmic) and experimental (simulation, emulation, real experimentation) fields.

The main application domains are ad hoc networks, sensor networks, mesh networks and vehicular networks, but they can be extended to other types of wireless networks (especially low-resources networks).

Topics for the workshop include, but are not limited to:

  • Wireless sensor networks, vehicular ad hoc networks
  • Visual sensor networks
  • Wireless Software-Defined Networking
  • MAC, routing and transport protocols
  • Resource allocation and management
  • Quality of service
  • Network scalability and capacity
  • Reliability and fault tolerance algorithms
  • Applications of wireless ad hoc networks
  • Performance modeling and analysis
  • Tools/platform for designing, implementing and evaluating wireless communication protocols
  • Distributed algorithms issues for wireless networks
  • Autonomic computing
  • Wireless networks optimization
  • Secure Services and Protocols
  • Security and privacy
  • Indoor/outdoor Positioning methods based on distributed wireless networks
  • Smart cities
  • Internet of Things


Each submission should be at most 8 pages in total, including bibliography and well-marked appendices, and must follow the IEEE double columns publication format available at:

Manuscript templates for IEEE conference proceedings

Paper submission will only be online via SITIS 2023 EasyChair submission system.

Only pdf files will be accepted. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. All submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression by at least two reviewers and then will be checked for plagiarism and self-plagiarism by IEEE. The organizers will examine the reviews and make final paper selections.


All the papers accepted for the workshop will be included in the conference proceedings. The proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society and referenced in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library, Scopus, DBLP and major indexes. The proceedings of the previous editions of SITIS are available here.


At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the workshop. The workshop registration fees are determined by the SITIS organizers. Both in-presence and remote presentations are allowed. Further details are available here. A single registration for the workshop or the conference allows attending both events.
