Call For Papers

Eighth IEEE WoWMoM Workshop on
Autonomic and Opportunistic Communications (AOC 2014)
June 16, 2014 - Sydney, Australia
Fast Track on Computer Communication Journal
**** Submission Deadline --- March 7, 2014 ****

The recent proliferation of sensor-rich portable devices is enabling novel
communication paradigms for users and contributing to the implementation of the
ubiquitous computing and networking vision. Opportunistic networking represents a
key communication paradigm for this vision. Either as a standalone communication
mode or as a complement to infrastructure-based communication, opportunistic
networking leverages the mobility of end users to enhance their ability to
communicate in the absence of reliable end-to-end connectivity. Opportunistic
networking opens up many possibilities but also poses countless new challenges.
The goal of the AOC 2014 workshop is to serve as a forum for researchers,
professionals, application developers, and other experts from both academia and
industry to exchange new ideas, discuss new solutions, and share their
experiences. As with previous editions, this year's workshop is particularly
interested in novel research directions, such as service composition techniques,
co-existence with infrastructure networks, and insights from game theory, social
networking analysis, and cognitive psychology. The workshop will solicit original
papers addressing theoretical and practical aspects of autonomic and opportunistic
communications as well as papers describing prototype implementations and
Topics of interest for AOC 2014 include, but are not limited to:
* Routing, transport, and reliability issues
* Techniques for data dissemination and replication
* Applications and middleware support, mobile social networking applications
* Mobility models and statistical analysis of mobility traces
* Context and social awareness mechanisms and algorithms
* Co-existence of opportunistic networks with infrastructure mobile wireless
* Service composition in autonomic and opportunistic networks
* Cognition-driven information processing and decision making
* Performance modelling, scaling laws, and fundamental limits for autonomic and
opportunistic communications
* Game-theoretical insights to the operation of autonomic and opportunistic
* Participatory and urban sensing in autonomic and opportunistic networks
* Trust, security, and reputation
* Autonomic and opportunistic communication testbeds and prototypes, measurement
data from real experiments
* Socio-economic models for autonomic and opportunistic communications
* Mobile Social networks


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.
Accepted papers will appear in the symposium proceedings published by IEEE. There
will be no separate workshop registration, as one single registration will cover
both conference and workshops participation. At least one author of each accepted
paper is required and present his/her work at the workshop.
We will use a free submission system for processing the submissions and reviews.
Extended versions of the selected workshop papers will be considered for possible
fast track publication on the Computer Communications Journal (Elsevier).
