ADHOCNETS 2013 : Ad Hoc Networks
Conference Series : Ad Hoc Networks
Call For Papers
Ad hoc networks, which cover a variety of network paradigms for specific purposes, such as mobile ad hoc networks, sensor networks, vehicular networks, underwater networks, underground networks, personal area networks, and home networks, promise a broad range of applications in civilian, commercial, and military areas. The aim of the annual International Conference on Ad Hoc Networks (AdHocNets) is to provide a forum that brings together researchers from academia as well as practitioners from industry to meet and exchange ideas and recent research work on all aspects of ad hoc networks. Following the success of AdHocNets’09, AdHocNets’10, AdHocNets’11, and AdHocNets’12, the fifth edition of the event, AdHocNets’13, will be held in the famous city of Barcelona, Spain, on Oct. 16-18, 2013. The conference will consist of keynote talks, technical sessions, and associated workshops. The technical sessions will present original and fundamental research advances while the workshops will focus on development and application issues in this hot field.
The conference solicits original technical papers that were not previously published and are not currently under review for publication elsewhere. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
Mobile Ad Hoc networks
Local area networks
Personal area networks
Body area networks
Network architectural and protocol design
MAC, routing, and transport protocols
Resource allocation and management
Network control and management
Power control and management
Topology control and management
Quality of service provisioning
MIMO and distributed MIMO
Ranging and node localization
Network scalability and capacity
Reliability and fault tolerance
Security and privacy
Random networks and percolation
Middleware for ad hoc networks
Applications of ad hoc networks
Performance modeling and analysis
Accepted papers will be published in the AdHocNets 2013 Conference Proceedings and by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes of the Institute for ComputerSciences, Social-Informatics and Tele-communications Engineering (LNICST) series.
Extended versions of selected best papers from the conference will be invited to be submitted for publication (fast review track) in the ICST Transactions on Mobile Communications and Applications.
The proceedings will be available both as paper-based copies and via Springerlink, Springer's digital library.
In addition, the content of the proceedings will be submitted for inclusion in leading indexing services, including DBLP, Google Scholar, ISI Proceedings, EI, CrossRef and Zentralblatt Math, as well as ICST's own EU Digital Library (EUDL).
A number of workshops will be co-located with the conference. Proposals should be sent to the Workshop Chair by July 1, 2013. Information on workshops, submission deadlines, and all other details will be posted on the conference website.
