*Cooperation is known as an effective strategy in nature to achieve individual or common goals by forming cooperative groups. As the cross over between nature and engineering has always been fruitful, this lecture is introducing cooperative concepts for wireless networks advocating mobile devices to cluster in a peer to peer fashion. In three lectures cooperation is advocated to overcome the most critical problems in mobile communication known as energy consumption, security, and higher data rates. The first lecture will introduce the main rules for cooperation. Whether to cooperate or act autonomously has to be decided by each mobile devices individually. Following the rule “The real egoistic behavior is to cooperate”, mutual aid among mobile devices will be applied if and only if it is beneficial for all group members. The second lecture is presenting cooperation concepts at the different protocol layers from applications to the physical layer. In the last lecture topics such as social mobile networks, game theory and genetic programming are presented.
> *Bio: *Frank H. P. Fitzek is an Associate Professor in the department of Electronic Systems, University of Aalborg, Denmark heading the Future Vision group. He received his diploma (Dipl.-Ing.) degree in electrical engineering from the University of Technology - Rheinisch-Westfälische Technische Hochschule (RWTH) - Aachen, Germany, in 1997 and his Ph.D. (Dr.-Ing.) in Electrical Engineering from the Technical University Berlin, Germany in 2002 for quality of service support in wireless CDMA networks. As a visiting student at the Arizona State University he conducted research in the field of video services over wireless networks. He co-founded the start-up company acticom GmbH in Berlin in 1999. In 2002 he was Adjunct Professor at the University of Ferrara, Italy giving lectures on wireless communications and conducting research on multi-hop networks. In 2005 he won the YRP award for the work on MIMO MDC and received the Young Elite Researcher Award of Denmark. He was selected to receive the NOKIA Champion Award in 2007 and 2008. In 2008 he was awarded the Nokia Achievement Award for his work on cooperative networks. His current research interests are in the areas of wireless and mobile communication networks, mobile phone programming, cross layer as well as energy efficient protocol design and cooperative networking.
