ABOUT AD HOC NOW
Since its creation in 2002, AD HOC NOW has become a well-established
and well-known international conference dedicated to wireless and
mobile computing. It serves as a forum for interesting discussions
on ongoing research and new contributions. The conference addresses
both experimental and theoretical research in the areas of ad hoc
networks, sensor networks, mesh networks and vehicular networks. It
focuses on all issues from link layer up to the application layer.
Paper Submission (Extended): April 26, 2009
Notification of Acceptance: June 8, 2009
Camera-ready versions due: June 30, 2009
Demo proposals due: May 3, 2009
We seek original contributions as work in progress, experimental and
theoretical research in Wireless Sensor, Ad-Hoc, Mobile and Wireless
Networks. Submissions must not be published or under review for another
conference or journal. We are interested, but not limited to, research
papers in any of the following areas:
* Access Control
* Ad Hoc Networks of Autonomous Intelligent Systems
* Algorithmic Issues
* Analytic Methods and Modeling for Performance Evaluation
* Ad Hoc Network Applications and Architectures
* Delay-Tolerant Networking
* Distributed Algorithms for Ad Hoc Networks
