Call For Papers

(Apologies if you received duplicate copies of this call for papers)
16th Annual Mediterranean Ad Hoc Networking Workshop
June 28 - 30, 2017
Budva, Montenegro

Technically Co-Sponsored by IEEE, IEEE Communications Society & IFIP
All accepted and presented papers will be published in IEEE Xplore Digital Library
The best paper award will be published in AD HOC NETWORKS JOURNAL (ELSEVIER).
Extended Submission Deadline: April 20, 2017

In the recent years the Internet evolution has undergone a remarkable and unstoppable change of trend, rooted on three main pillars, new technologies (cloud computing, SDN, NFV, etc.), broad connectivity (3G/4G, VANET, etc.), and the wide deployment of smart edge devices (smart phones, sensors, wearables, etc.), all setting the main concept for the Internet of Things (IoT), also encompassing scenarios such as smart cities, ITS (intelligent   transportation systems), smart homes or e-health. 
MED-HOC-NET 2017 extends its focus far beyond traditional networking concepts, highlighting new networking concepts related to the mentioned three main pillars developed for the future generation of network and cloud computing technologies. Med-hoc-net 2017 is willing to accommodate contributions on smart mobile scenarios, focusing on highly relevant developments but also preliminary ideas and concepts on the ICT area, aiming at facilitating the development of new technologies and services with a high societal impact.
Following recent successful conferences in Sicily (2006), Corfu (2007), Palma de Mallorca (2008), Haifa (2009), Juan-les-pins (2010), Favignana Island (2011), Cyprus (2012), Corsica (2013), Slovenia (2014) and Algarve (2015), Barcelona (2016), Med-Hoc-Net 2017 will take place in the city of Budva right in front of the Mediterranean Sea.

Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Ad hoc and mesh networks 
- Routing algorithms and protocols 
- Transport layer protocols for multi-hop networks
- MAC protocols, scheduling, power and topology control, and resource
- Sensor network protocols
- Vehicular networks
