Call For Papers

2009 International Workshop on Mobile, Multimedia, Ad Hoc & Sensor Networks
(MMASN 2009)

In conjunction with
The 8th International Conference on Pervasive Intelligence and Computing
(PICOM 2009)


Ad Hoc & Sensor Networks have received tremendous attentions from both academic
community and industry field for many years, since these networks are the key
underlying infrastructure for realizing next generation networking and computing,
e.g., ubiquitous computing, 4 G all IP networks. Along with the fast development
on the hardware and embedded systems, Ad Hoc & Sensor Networks are further
developed towards a large number of mobile & multimedia applications, e.g., video
surveillance, traffic enforcement and control systems, advanced health care
delivery, structural health monitoring, and industrial process control. To
eventually realizing these mobility & multimedia technologies combined applications,
a lot of efforts are still needed from both academic community and industry field,
since the requirements on supporting both mobility and multimedia streaming in
Wireless Ad Hoc & Sensor Networks positioned many challenging issues, e.g., mobile
network self-organization, limited resource intelligent allocation, cross-layer
optimization, and intelligent content-aware transmission.

In this workshop, we solicit research papers on all aspects of mobile, multimedia,
Ad Hoc & Sensor Networks. Especially, we are interested in the research submissions
focusing on the following four key aspects: 1) Congestion control problem: when
multiple multimedia source nodes are deployed in wireless multimedia sensor networks,
and they try to send out the streaming data to a single base station at the same time,
a well designed congestion control scheme is essentially necessary; 2) Mobility
support problem: when both multimedia source nodes and sink node can be mobile, it is
easy to see that there is an opportunity to apply the game theory to further solve
some more complicated optimization problems; 3) Duty-cycle support problem: when
sensor nodes in the wireless multimedia sensor networks are random duty-cycled based,
the network topology and connectivity of sensor networks can change from time to time.
It is important to further investigate a cross layer optimized sensor node sleeping
scheduling scheme to guarantee the network connectivity for packet delivery; 4) Target
tracking problem: when multiple video sensor nodes are deployed to tracking a certain
target in the sensor networks, it is important to further explore the collaboration
between multiple video sensor nodes for facilitating the target tracking task.

The objective of this workshop is to bring together state-of-the-art research
contributions, tutorials, and position papers that address these key aspects of mobile,
multimedia Ad Hoc & Sensor Networks. Original papers describing completed and
unpublished work not currently under review by any other journal/magazine/conference/
workshop are solicited.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Scalable and flexible network architectures, deployments, and heterogeneous applications
* New middleware, system, and underlying infrastructure
* Semantic annotation for multimedia streams processing and management
* Protocols for supporting real-time and reliable multimedia streaming
* Energy-efficient multimedia gathering, transmission, traffic management, and sensor data
* Scalability and mobility issues in cross-layer design, and optimization for effective
* Context/content aware approaches for facilitating multimedia streaming
