Call For Papers

Extreme communication environments such as underwater, aerial, underground, and intra-body have been attracting growing interest from both academia and industry in an effort to conquer the last wireless communication frontiers. Novel wireless communication architectures and networking protocols for GPS-denied and communication-constrained environments enable a rich body of applications with unprecedented societal impact. The workshop will focus on communication, networking, and system-level developments related to underwater, aerial, underground, and intra-body environments, as well as on contributions towards the characterization and modeling of the different mediums based on real-world data measurements.

The goal of the workshop is to unveil the latest wireless technology developments, from the physical layer all the way to the application layer in realizing underwater, aerial, underground, and intra-body communication networks with a focus on bridging the gaps between theory, algorithms, and practical system implementations. The workshop will bring together academic and industrial researchers to identify and discuss technical challenges and recent results related to underwater, aerial, underground, and intra-body extreme communication environments.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

-Energy efficient protocols and routing techniques
-Cognitive networking
-Hybrid network protocol designs
-Secure LPD/LPI communication and networking
-Spectrally efficient signal waveform designs
-Multi/massive antenna communications
-Low-power wide area networking
-Ad-hoc cross-layer optimized networking, routing, handover and meshing
-Distributed sensing and mobile networking
-RF/acoustic/optical communication systems
-Modeling and simulation tools
-Experimental results from prototypes, testbeds, and demonstrations
-Software-defined radio platforms and SDN testbeds
-Internet-of-things applications
-Antenna design and processing
-Spectrum access policies for dynamic network control
-Hardware/software challenges in multi/massive antenna transceiver design
-Cooperation of robotic unmanned vehicles with multi-domain (sea-land-air) capabilities
-Human-machine interaction
-Signal propagation models
-Optimization techniques for multi-modal processing
-Signal processing for distributed beamforming
-Localization, detection, classification and tracking methods
-Communication-constrained multi-agent path planning and task allocation
-Machine learning and AI-assisted algorithms for wireless communications and networking
-Signal propagation and attenuation models (absorption, scattering, fading, multipath)
-Measurement and characterization (modeling) of real-world wireless (underwater, aerial, intra-body, underground) network deployments

Paper Submission

Manuscripts must be limited to 6 pages in IEEE 8.5x11 format. The reviews will be single blind. The manuscripts should be formatted in standard IEEE camera-ready format (double-column, 10-pt font) and be submitted as PDF files (formatted for 8.5x11-inch paper). Accepted papers will be published in the combined INFOCOM 2019 Workshop proceedings and will be submitted to IEEE Xplore. Submitted papers may not have been previously published in or under consideration for publication in another journal or conference. The reviews will be single blind. Manuscripts should be submitted as PDF files via EDAS.
