SECON 2012 : IEEE Communications Society Conference on Sensor, Mesh and Ad Hoc Communications and Networks
Conference Series : Sensor, Mesh and Ad Hoc Communications and Networks
Call For Papers
The ninth annual IEEE SECON conference will provide a unique forum to exchange innovative research ideas, recent results, and share experiences among researchers and practitioners in the field of sensor, mesh, and ad hoc networks and systems. IEEE SECON grew out of the IEEE INFOCOM conference in 2004, in order to create an event that focused on the important and exciting topics of Sensor, Mesh and Ad Hoc Communications Networks.
Papers describing original, previously unpublished research work, experimental efforts, practical experiences, and industrial and commercial developments in all aspects of sensor, ad hoc, and mesh communications and networking are solicited. Within this domain, particular topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Vehicular Networks, Underwater Networks, Urban Sensing, and other Emerging Areas
Disruption Tolerant Networks
Measurements and Experimental Research
Security and Trustworthiness
Survivability, Network Management and Fault Tolerance
Modeling, Algorithms, and Performance Evaluation
Hardware and Software Platforms, Middleware
MAC, Network, Transport, Application Protocols and Cross-Layer Design
Network Coding, MIMO, White Space, Cooperative and Cognitive Communications
Applications of mesh, senor, and ad-hoc communications in diverse domains such as Smart Grids, Green Networking, Environment Monitoring, Context Sensing and Awareness, Social Networking, Mobile Peer-to-Peer Systems, Contact Networking
PAPER SUBMISSION AND PUBLICATION
Papers should neither have been published elsewhere nor currently under review by another conference or journal. All papers for IEEE SECON 2012 must be submitted electronically via the EDAS system: http://edas.info/. Papers must be no longer than 9 pages and in font size no smaller than 10 points. Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceeding published by IEEE.
To be published in the IEEE SECON 2012 Conference Proceedings and IEEE Xplore®, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the non student rate (member or non-member) rate and the paper must be presented at the conference. Non-refundable registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the final IEEE formatted, publication-ready version of the paper. For authors with multiple accepted papers, one full registration is valid for up to 3 papers. Accepted papers will be published in the IEEE SECON 2012 Conference Proceedings. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE SECON 2012 Conference Proceedings and in IEEE Xplore®.
The organizers of IEEE SECON 2012 as well as our attendees expect accepted papers to be presented at the conference. IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference.
Detailed paper submission guidelines will be posted in the SECON submission site.
