The 13th IEEE International Conference on Mobile Ad hoc and Sensor Systems (IEEE MASS 2016) will be held in Brasilia, Brazil, October 10-13, 2016. Wireless ad hoc communications, Internet of Things, and mobile computing have applications in a variety of environments, such as smart homes, hospitals, battlefields, and disaster-recovery operations. Wireless sensor and actuator networks are being deployed for enhancing industrial control processes and supply-chains, and for various forms of environmental monitoring. IEEE MASS 2016 is a three-track conference sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society. It aims at addressing research advances in mobile ad-hoc and sensor systems related to (i) algorithms and theory, (ii) systems, protocols, and applications, and (iii) experimental evaluation and testbeds, covering topics ranging from theoretical foundations to applications and testbed development.


Original, unpublished contributions are solicited in all aspects of mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs), wireless sensor networks (WSNs) (including cyber-physical systems, Internet of Things), and mobile networking/computing, including theory, systems and applications. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Algorithmic aspects of MANETs and WSNs
Application Layer Protocols
Architectures of wired/wireless networks
Capacity planning and admission control
Clustering, topology control, coverage, and connectivity

Authors are invited to submit technical papers presenting original, unpublished research, not currently under review elsewhere. All submissions should be written in English with a maximum length of 9 single-spaced, double-column pages using 10pt size fonts on 8.5 x 11 inch pages, with a side margin of at least 1 inch, including all figures, tables, and references, in the PDF format. Authors must use the Manuscript Templates for IEEE Conference Proceedings. Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings published by IEEE and will be presented at the conference. Based on reviews and TPC discussions, the TPC may choose to accept some papers as short papers (5 pages). For all papers, IEEE reserves the right to exclude the paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference. The conference will also include a poster and demo session.
