A primary aim of wireless ad-hoc networks is to deliver data in areas where there is no pre-defined infrastructure. In these networks, the users, but also the network entities can be potentially mobile. Wireless ad-hoc networks have recently witnessed their fastest growth period ever in history. Real wireless ad-hoc networks are now implemented, deployed and tested, and this trend is likely to increase in the future. However, as such networks are increasingly complex, performance modeling and evaluation play a crucial part in their design process to ensure their successful deployment and exploitation in practice.

This special issue on Modeling and Performance Evaluation of Wireless Ad-Hoc Networks era aims to open a new critical debate on the evaluation of wireless ad-hoc networks. In particular, we seek original theoretical and/or practical contributions, from researchers and practitioners, that identify and address issues in evaluating wireless ad-hoc networks.

Topics of Interest
In particular, the topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Modeling
* Analytical modeling
* Probabilistic models
* Queuing and network information theoretic analysis
* Predictive performance models
* Mobility modeling
* Traffic models

- Simulation/Experimentation
* Simulation methods and tools for evaluation wireless ad-hoc networks
* Software tools for performance evaluation
* Tracing and trace analysis
* Automatic performance analysis
* Performance measurement, evaluation and monitoring tools for wireless ad-hoc networks
* Case studies demonstrating the role of performance evaluation in the design of wireless ad-hoc networks

- Performance evaluation
* Performance evaluation of wireless mesh networks
* Performance evaluation of vehicular networks
* Performance evaluation of wireless sensor networks
* Performance comparison
* Network performance improvement through optimization and tuning

All manuscripts and any supplementary material should be submitted through Elsevier Editorial System (EES). The authors must select as “SI – MODEL PERFORM EVAL ADHOC” when they reach the “Article Type” step in the submission process. The EES website is located at:

All papers will be peer-reviewed by three independent reviewers. Requests for additional information should be addressed to the guest editors.
Submission Format and Guidelines

All submitted papers must be clearly written in excellent English and contain only original work, which has not been published by, or is currently under review for, any other journal or conference. Papers must not exceed 25 pages (single column, 11pt font) including figures, tables, and references. A detailed submission guideline is available as a “Guide to Authors” at
