Workshop on “SON Algorithms for Energy Efficiency”

COST IC1004 + GREENETS Joint Workshop on “SON Algorithms for Energy Efficiency”
May 28th, 2013 - Ilmenau (Germany)

The European COST Action IC1004 addresses research issues in the field of cooperative radio communications to make communications in smart environments (SEs) cleaner, safer, and more energy efficient.
The GREENETS FP7 project adresses aspects of energy consumption reduction in cellular networks by application of advanced network management schemes.
This workshop is intended to serve as a discussion framework on advances on self-organising algorithms for energy efficient radio access networks.

Topics of interest
• Self-Organising Network Architectures
• Simulation tools for SON
• Measurements, trials and field tests
• Cooperative networks for energy efficiency
• Power and energy consumption models
• Energy efficient Routing algorithms 
• Self-organising femtocell networks
