Call For Papers


MESN 2019
1st IEEE Workshop on
Mobile Energy Sharing Networks (MESN)

co-located with IEEE WoWMoM 2019

June 9-12, 2019

EDAS Submission Link:

Energy is a scarce resource in any mobile and wireless networks that consist of devices/vehicles mainly powered by their batteries. Providing energy ubiquitously to these devices for making them functional for a long time is a challenging task. With the advent of energy sharing techniques, either by wired or wireless mediums (wireless power transfer – WPT), it is possible to extend the lifetime of such networks by utilizing the energy from other energy sources (e.g., chargers, other devices) within the network. Recently, there is a growing number of research studies that adopt the energy sharing for several energy optimization problems in different applications of mobile networks including Wireless Sensor Network (WSN), Delay Tolerant Networks (DTN), Mobile Social Network (MSN) or Vehicular Networks. Energy sharing has been applied between mobile agents ranging from low-power devices such as sensors to moderate and high-power ones such as smartphones and electric vehicles. However, depending on the networking scenario as well as the form of energy sharing, different problems have been studied. This diverse application scenario has on the other hand resulted in isolated research communities working on the similar problems based on the common energy sharing concept in mobile networks.

The objective of the workshop is to bring together academics, researchers, and industry professionals from around the world to discuss and exchange ideas on recent developments, current research challenges and future directions in the use of energy sharing among mobile nodes in different network applications and benefit from each other's findings and initiate collaborations to address the interdisciplinary nature of the topic.

Toward this goal, the workshop will span the topics including but are not limited to:

• Wirelessly rechargeable sensor networks
• Device-to-device (D2D) energy sharing in Mobile Social Networks
• Opportunistic Energy Sharing in Delay Tolerant Networks
• Energy sharing protocols and scheduling algorithms in Mobile Energy Networks
• Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) Mobile Energy Networks
• Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) Mobile Energy Networks
• Incentive models for energy sharing by peers
• Energy trading and economy models among peers
• Aerial (UAV) Mobile Energy Networks
• Far-Field Wireless Power Transfer for Internet-of-Things (IoT) Networks
• Crowd charging solutions in Mobile Social Networks
• Hybrid Mobile Energy Networks
• Software/Hardware solutions for energy sharing among peers
• Privacy and Security in Mobile Energy Networks

Manuscripts submitted for consideration should not have been already published elsewhere and should not be under review or submitted for review elsewhere during the consideration period. Manuscripts must be written in English, are limited to 6 pages, single spacing, double column, and must strictly adhere to the IEEE template format available here. All accepted papers will be included and indexed in the IEEE Digital Library (IEEE Xplore), showing their affiliation with IEEE WoWMoM. There will be no separate workshop registration, as one single registration will cover both conference and workshops participation. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to attend and present his/her work at the workshop. Papers must be submitted electronically through EDAS (
