Call For Papers

Wireless ad hoc networks have attracted the attention of the research community in the last
several years, mostly because of the growing interest in a connected world, where people are
– virtually – omnipresent. Next generation wireless networks, heterogeneous access
technologies, ad-hoc and sensor networks, and new Internet technologies are part of this
pervasive environment.
MED-HOC-NET 2012, as its previous 10 predecessors focuses on communication
networking research, especially on new issues in Wireless Ad-Hoc Networks, which include
Application Scenarios, Data-centric Operation, Autonomous Organization, Optimization and
Control, Operation under Intermittent Connectivity, and Service Creation and Support. The
scope of the workshop also includes new and exciting challenges in wireless mesh networks,
sensor networks, vehicular networks, delay tolerant and opportunistic networks, and the
opportunities provided or stemming from the social networks paradigm.
As a major annual international workshop, the 11th MED-HOC-NET aims to serve as a
platform for researchers and visionaries from the academia, the research laboratories, and the
industry to present their latest work.
Following recent successful conferences in Sicily (2006), Corfu (2007), Palma de Mallorca
(2008), Haifa (2009), Juan-les-pins (2010), and Favignana Island (2011), Med-Hoc-Net 2012
will take place in Ayia Napa (CYPRUS).

Workshop Topics
The papers solicited cover a variety of topics related to ad hoc, wireless, sensor, mesh, delay
tolerant, and opportunistic networks, including but not limited to:

* Routing algorithms and protocols
* MAC protocols, scheduling, power control, and resource allocation
* Transport layer protocols for multi-hop networks
* Middleware for ad hoc networks
* Application driven architectures and protocols
* Sensor network applications and protocols
* Vehicular networks
* Cognitive radio networks
* Integration of ad hoc networks with wireless access networks
* Implementations, testbeds, and prototypes
* Technology related issues (IEEE 802.11, Bluetooth, ZigBee, IEEE 802.16, etc.)
* Self-organization and network (re)configuration
* Optimization models and algorithms
* Resource and service discovery
* Energy-efficient networking
* Exploitation of social and mobility patterns for opportunistic networking
* Mobile social networks
* Security and privacy
* Positioning and localization
* Participatory and urban sensing
* Underwater wireless networks
* Green networking

Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings and will appear in
