Med-Hoc-Net 2014
The 13th IFIP Annual Mediterranean Ad Hoc Networking Workshop

June 2-4, 2014
Piran, Slovenia

Wireless ad hoc networks have attracted considerable attention from the research
community in the last several years. Now that many of the fundamental topics and
challenges have been deeply investigated, the focus is partially shifting to new
issues, which include data-centric operations, autonomous organization, service
creation/support, continued operation under intermittent connectivity,
optimization, control, cross-layer design and application scenarios (road safety,
disaster recovery, smart cities, energy efficient buildings, sensors, actuators,
wearables, etc.). Moreover, novel and exciting challenges are introduced by
commercial systems adopting the ad hoc paradigm, from mesh, sensor and vehicular
networks, and by associated delay-tolerant and opportunistic scenarios.
Furthermore, today's market explosion of smart phones is creating new
opportunities for wireless ad hoc social networks, the study of which requires
the combination of opportunistic ad hoc networking aspects with the understanding
of social behavior and mobility patterns.

MED-HOC-NET 2014 focuses on all the ramifications of ad hoc networking research,
not only the classic topics of location management, security/privacy, topology
optimization/control schemes and resource allocation, but also paying attention
to novel emerging areas such as green networking, safety/surveillance, underwater
communications, and coexistence among heterogeneous devices.

The Workshop is endorsed by the IEEE Communication Society and its Technical
Committees for Ad Hoc & Sensor Networks, Information Infrastructure & Networking,
and Radio Communication, and by IFIP.

Papers are solicited in a variety of topics related to ad hoc, wireless, sensor,
mesh, delay-tolerant, content-centric 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 reconfiguration
-Optimization models and algorithms
-Resource and service discovery
-Use of advanced antenna technologies (MIMO, beam forming, etc.)
-Security and privacy
-Delay tolerant networks
-Exploitation of social and mobility patterns for opportunistic networking
-Mobile social networks
-Security and privacy
-Participatory and urban sensing
-Underwater wireless networks
-Heterogeneous networks
-Novel performance measures
-Green networking
-Cooperative schemes
-Network localization
-Network secrecy
-Networking virtualization
-Services based, and enabled by Ad Hoc networks
