The Sixth International Conference on Wireless
On-demand Network Systems and Services

Technical sponsorship: euroNF, IFIP, IEEE, IEEE ComSoc

February 2-4, 2009. Snowbird, Utah, USA

Scope of the conference

As more and more users become increasingly dependent on wireless and mobile
communications, it is necessary to secure a reliable and dependable technology
support for "on-demand" services through any of the wireless architectures that
have been in development recently, such as mesh networks, wimax, wifi, ad hoc
networks, sensor networks, etc.

However, there are serious challenges to overcome, such as the integration of
infrastructure-based and ad hoc networks, robust algorithms for self-organizing,
reconfigurable wireless networks, on-demand service models and their provision
in a highly-volatile interconnection environment, and smooth interoperability of

WONS, now in its sixth edition, has established itself as a high-quality forum
to address these challenges in the context of a workshop that is rich in intense
interactions and based on innovative contributions by experts in the field.

This announcement solicits original submissions of high-quality research papers
on "wireless on demand networks" that provide novel insights on protocol and
network design, modeling and performance evaluation, pricing and profitability
models, QoS models, practical implementations, service level aspects and
Internet integration of wireless networks.

Topics related to wireless ad hoc networks, mesh networks, vehicular networks
and sensor networks comprise, but are not limited to:
* Architecture and Design
* Analysis through simulation and experimental evaluation
* Modeling
* Internet integration
* Social and economic aspects
* Pervasive / ubiquitous computing
* Localization and mobility management
* Security
* Energy-efficient protocols and power management
* Applications and Service Support
* Data dissemination and Peer-to-Peer systems
* Middleware aspects
* Self-X and network management

Manuscript submissions
Submitted papers must not have been published elsewhere nor currently be under
review by another conference or journal. Authors are invited to submit
double-column full (8 pages) and short papers (4 pages) in PDF format having a
font size no smaller than 10pt. Short papers should present future research
directions, ongoing work, visionary, innovative ideas; accepted short papers
will populate poster sessions at the conference and will be included in the
conference proceedings.
Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register
and present the paper.
Conference proceedings will be included in the IEEE Xplore library.

Further submission instructions will be published on the conference web site.
