Med-Hoc-Net 2018 - Call For Papers

17th IEEE/IFIP Annual Mediterranean Ad Hoc Networking Workshop

20-22 June 2018
Capri, Italy

In 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
(4G/5G, VANET, FANET, 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) and encompassing scenarios such
as smart cities, ITS (intelligent transportation systems), smart grid,
smart homes, or e-health.

Med-Hoc-Net 2018 extends its focus far beyond traditional networking
concepts, highlighting new concepts related to the mentioned three main
pillars developed for the future generation of network and cloud
computing technologies. Med-Hoc-Net 2018 will accommodate contributions
on smart mobile scenarios, focusing on highly relevant developments but
also preliminary ideas and concepts in the ICT area, aiming at
facilitating the development of new technologies and services with a
high societal impact. 

Following successful workshops at Sardinia Island (2002), Mahdia (2003),
Bodrum (2004), Porquerolles Island (2005), Lipari Island (2006), Corfu
Island (2007), Mallorca Island (2008), Haifa (2009), Juan-Les-Pins
(2010), Favignana Island (2011), Ayia Napa (2012), Corsica Island
(2013), Piran (2014), the Algarve (2015), Barcelona (2016), and Budva
(2017), Med-Hoc-Net 2018 will take place on the island of Capri, Italy,
in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea.

Program Highlights

Med-Hoc-Net 2018 will feature two program highlights:

* a keynote speech by Prof. Dr. Ian F. Akyildiz of the Georgia
Institute of Technology; and

* an expert panel discussion on safety, privacy and cybersecurity.

Topics of interest

Topics of interest revolve around ad hoc and mesh networks; for example:
* MAC, routing and transport layer protocols for multi-hop networks
* Wireless sensor networking: Technologies, protocols, etc. 
* Vehicular networks
* Smart grid networks 
* Cognitive radio networks 
* Integration of ad hoc networks with wireless access networks  
* Implementations, testbeds, and field tests 
* Technology related issues (IEEE 802.11, Bluetooth, ZigBee, etc.) 
* Quality of Service 
* Optimization models and algorithms 
* Energy-efficient networking 
* Security and privacy  
* Localization and tracking in wireless networks  
* Novel communication techniques
* Visible light communication (VLC)
* Software defined networking (SDN)
* Participatory and urban networks 
* Underwater wireless networks 
* UAVs and Flying ad hoc networks (FANETs)
* Green networking 

Manuscript submissions

Submissions should be original, previously unpublished work not
currently under review for publication elsewhere.

All paper submissions must be written in English and must be formatted
in standard IEEE 2-column format. The mandatory IEEE template in
Microsoft Word and LaTeX format can be found at the IEEE templates page.
Only Adobe PDF files will be accepted for the review process. All
submissions must be made electronically using EDAS and strictly adhere
to the respective page limit when typeset–including figures, tables, and
references. Submissions that are not received by the stated deadlines or
that do not conform to these rules will not be accepted, nor reviewed at
all. We are providing a sample paper for download; please use this as a

The EDAS link to upload papers is available via

Note that we will consider two different categories of papers:
- Full papers should describe novel research contributions and are
limited in length to eight (8) printed pages.
- Short papers should be more visionary in nature and may report on
work in progress without completed results. They are meant to
present novel perspectives, so as to foster discussion about
innovative directions and new points of view. They are limited to at
most four (4) pages, but might in many cases be even shorter.
Accepted short papers will be included in the proceedings and there
will be given (a shorter) time for oral presentation at the

Please note that the full paper and short paper categories target
different kinds of contributions. Papers submitted to a category will
NOT be moved to a different category: A paper will either be accepted
for the category where it has been submitted, or it will be rejected.
Full papers will not be “downgraded” to short papers. Therefore, please
be sure to carefully assess for yourself prior to submission which is
the most suitable submission category for your paper, and to make sure
that the presentation in the manuscript is well suited to the aims of
this category.

No-show policy

Submission to the workshop implies willingness to present. No-shows will
be excluded from the proceedings. No-show papers are defined as papers
submitted by authors who subsequently did not present the paper
in-person (no videos, no remote cast) at the technical meeting.
Presentations by proxies are not allowed. No refund of the paid fees can
be claimed by the no-show author. Exceptions to this policy can only be
made by the Technical Program Chairs of the workshop and only if there
is evidence that the no-show occurred because of unanticipated events
beyond the control of the authors, and every option available to the
authors to present the paper was exhausted.
