ASON 2018 : 11th International Workshop on Autonomous Self-Organizing Networks
Call For Papers
11th International Workshop on Autonomous Self-Organizing Networks
To be held in conjunction with CANDAR'18.
Hida Takayama, Japan, November 27-30, 2018
[Scope of the conference]
The recent growth of high speed wired/wireless access and LANs, functional wireless terminals such as smart phones and tablets, and cost-effective sensor/tag devices increasingly stimulate the emergence of user-centric network services collecting and exploiting user-provided data. Monitoring and notification system of children or elderly people using sensor data is such an example. In order that the networks support these services in the flexible and scalable manners, multihop/relay technique involving user terminals will play a key role. From this perspective, mobile ad hoc and mesh networks, sensor networks and P2P networks have been attracting much attention. These networks typically consist of autonomous nodes without any central control and they should be self-organizing to handle the growing complexity of the upcoming networks and to adapt to unpredictable change of the network environments. Distributed topology management, resource management and routing are common research challenges in all these networks. The objective of this Workshop is to discuss new approaches and technologies in the field of ad hoc and mesh networks, sensor networks and P2P networks through papers. Particularly, we welcome papers describing protocol designs or performance evaluations both from theoretical and practical aspects, or describing observations and findings from practical experiments.
Suggested topics include but are not limited to the followings:
- Network configuration and topology management
- Cross-layer design and interaction
- Energy efficiency
- Location management, location based services
- Distributed sensing
- Network coding
- Vehicular networks
- Measurement from experimental test-beds
- Cognitive radio networks
- Medium access control for resource management
- Scalable and robust routing
with respect to autonomous self-organizing networks including ad hoc networks/sensor networks/P2P networks.
