**** Submission Deadline --- January 31, 2011 ****
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


The diffusion of lightweight, powerful portable devices, also enriched with a
variety of sensing capabilities, is enabling new ways for users to communicate,
and is laying the foundation for the ubiquitous networking idea to become a
reality. Risen from the ashes of traditional MANETs, which failed to cope with
the variability of a network solely made up from mobile users, opportunistic
communications have recently stood out and gained a lot of research attention.
Opportunistic networking is the enabling strategy for communications in a mobile
network. The idea of opportunistically exploiting extemporary contacts among
the users of the network poses new and challenging problems, as well as
providing with novel and promising opportunities, to the networking research
community. The AOC 2011 workshop will be a meeting point for people working in
the area and it will constitute a forum to exchange ideas, discuss solutions,
and share experiences among researchers, professionals, and application
developers, both from industry and academia. The AOC 2011 workshop will have a
primary interest in the new directions of opportunistic communications
represented by mobile social networking, content-centric networking, and
participatory sensing. More in general, papers tackling issues related to
opportunistic networking and computing are welcome. Original papers addressing
both theoretical and practical aspects of autonomic and opportunistic
communications are solicited, as well as papers describing prototype
implementations and deployments.


Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* Architectures and models for autonomic and opportunistic communications
* Advanced technologies for enabling autonomic and opportunistic
communications
* Tools and techniques for designing, analysing and building autonomic and
opportunistic networks
* Scaling laws and fundamental limits in autonomic and opportunistic
communications
* Performance modeling of autonomic and opportunistic communications
* Autonomic and opportunistic communication testbeds and measurements
* Algorithms, models, and architectures for opportunistic computing
* Mechanisms, algorithms and testbeds for service provisioning in autonomic
and opportunistic networks
* Algorithms, models, and architectures for content centric autonomic and
opportunistic networks
* Mobile social networking in autonomic and opportunistic communications
* Participatory and urban sensing in autonomic and opportunistic networks
* Resource management techniques applied to autonomic and opportunistic
communications
* Context and social awareness in autonomic and opportunistic networks
* Routing, transport, and reliability issues in autonomic and opportunistic
communications
* Techniques for data dissemination and replication in autonomic and
opportunistic networks
* Applications and middleware support for autonomic and opportunistic
communications
* Mobility models and statistical analysis of mobility traces
* Trust, security, and reputation in autonomic and opportunistic
communications
* Socio-economic models for autonomic and opportunistic communications


PAPER SUBMISSION AND PUBLICATION
--------------------------------

Papers should neither have been published elsewhere nor being currently under
review by another conference or journal. Manuscripts are limited to 6 pages,
single spacing, double column, and must strictly adhere to the template
format. Guidelines on paper submission and formatting are available at
http://cnd.iit.cnr.it/aoc2011/.

Accepted papers will appear in the symposium proceedings published by IEEE. At
least one author of each accepted paper is required to register and present
his/her work at the workshop. There will be no separate registration for
workshop, but one single registration will cover both conference and workshops
participation.

Extended versions of workshop selected papers will be considered for possible
fast track publication on the Computer Communications Journal (Elsevier).
