Call For Papers

The 8th IFIP Annual Mediterranean Ad Hoc Networking Workshop
Med-Hoc-Net 2009

June 29-July 2, 2009
Haifa, Israel

Wireless ad hoc networks have attracted the attention of the research community in the last several years. Now, that some of the fundamental issues and challenges have been clearly assessed, the focus is partially shifting to new issues, which include application scenarios (road safety, disaster recovery, sensors and actuators, etc.), autonomous organization and operation, optimization and control, and service creation and support. Moreover, new and exciting challenges are posed by closely related networks such as wireless mesh networks, sensor networks, and vehicular networks.

Med-Hoc-Net is a major annual international workshop, aiming to serve as a platform for researchers and visionaries from academia, research labs, and industry. Following Sicily (2006), Corfu (2007), and Palma de Mallorca (2008), Med-Hoc-Net 2009 will take place in Haifa (Israel). It will be held at the Viterbi Computech Center in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology.


The papers solicited cover a variety of topics related to ad hoc, wireless, sensor, and mesh 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

Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings by Springer in the LNCS or IFIP Series.

Selected papers will be published in a special issue of the Ad Hoc Networks journal.


Submitted papers should address original work not published or under review elsewhere. Submitted manuscripts must be formatted according to the SSBM IFIP Series formats ( and should not exceed 12 pages. Papers should be submitted via EDAS ( All submissions will be reviewed by members of the TPC and experts in the field.


Graduate students with accepted papers will receive travel grants to partially cover travel expenses.


Submission deadline: January 10, 2009
Notification of Acceptance: March 1, 2009
Final Version Due: March 20, 2009
