SWIM: A Simple Model to Generate Small Mobile Worlds
This paper presents small world in motion (SWIM), a new mobility model for ad-hoc networking. SWIM is relatively simple, is easily tuned by setting just a few parameters, and generates traces thatExpand

Social-aware stateless forwarding in pocket switched networks
In this paper we describe SANE, the first forwarding mechanism that combines the advantages of both social-aware and stateless approaches in pocket switched network routing. SANE is based on theExpand

Small World in Motion (SWIM): Modeling Communities in Ad-Hoc Mobile Networking
The complexity of social mobile networks, networks of devices carried by humans (e.g. sensors or PDAs) and communicating with short-range wireless technology, makes it hard protocol evaluation. AExpand

VIP delegation: Enabling VIPs to offload data in wireless social mobile networks
We propose the use of opportunistic delegation as a data traffic offload solution to the recent boost up of mobile data consumption in metropolitan areas, by investigating two main questions: (i)Expand

Social-Aware Stateless Routingin Pocket Switched Networks
Existing social-aware routing protocols for packet switched networks make use of the information about the social structure of the network deduced by state information of nodes (e.g., history of pastExpand
