Full Chapters Due: February 15, 2011
Submission Date: April 30, 2011


In the past few years, a new wireless architecture has been introduced that does not rely on any fixed infrastructure. A mobile ad-hoc network (MANET) is a self starting dynamic network comprising of mobile nodes, where each and every participation node voluntarily transmit the packets destined to some remote node using wireless (radio signal) transmission. A mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is based on rapid deployment of independent mobile users. The routers are free to move randomly and organize themselves arbitrarily, thus the network’s wireless topology may change rapidly and unpredictably. Such a network may operate in a stand-alone fashion or may be connected to the Internet. With multihop, mobility, and bandwidth properties, MANET is able to perform in large networks even when combined with heterogeneous devices and device modes.

The purpose of this book is to present high-quality theoretical and practical work on MANET. It should act as a reference, and include a real time research application glossary. Technological Advancement and Application in Mobile Ad-hoc Networks should also cover recent advances in mobile and wireless test beds and related research infrastructures that will further improve the scope and possibilities of mobile ad hoc networks.

Target Audience

The book will provide in-depth coverage for researchers and professional concerned with MANET, ad-hoc networking, MANET applications, and related topics. This book will have scholarly value for advanced level students, academicians, and researchers in networking. It should also appeal to professionals working with MANET on applications, security challenges, performance, and many additional parameters.

Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

* Architecture Specification Mobile Ad hoc Networks
* Basics of Mobile Ad Hoc Networks
* Cross-layer design issues for MANET
* Energy management in MANET
* Latest Applications in MANET
* Latest Research Issues in MANET
* MAC layer protocols for Mobile Ad hoc Networks
* MANET in Heterogeneous Networks
* Mobility models for multihop ad hoc wireless networks
* Multicast routing protocols for Mobile Ad hoc Networks
* Performance Measurement of Mobile Ad hoc Networks
* Potential Area of Research in MANET
* Protocols of Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET)
* Quality of Service in ad hoc wireless networks
* Recent developments in ad hoc wireless networks
* Routing Protocols, Techniques & Variants in Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET)
* Security Threat & Issues with MANET
* Security Provision Aspects in MANET

Technical Contents

The chapters may contain any, or a combination, of the following research approaches in the above mentioned areas:

* Theoretical Models and Formal Verifications/Proofs
* Algorithms, Middleware, Protocol, and Performance by Simulation
* Real-World Design, Implementation, and Performance Evaluation
* Software Design, Software Models, Implementations and Verifications, Performance

Submission Procedure

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit on or before December 30, 2010 a 2-3 pages chapter proposal clearly explaining the mission and concerns of his or her proposed chapter. Authors of accepted proposals will be notified by February 15, 2011 about the status of their proposals and sent chapter guidelines. Full chapters are expected to be submitted by before April 30, 2010. All submitted chapters will be reviewed on a double-blind review basis. Contributors may also be requested to serve as reviewers for this project.
