Call For Papers

Fifth Workshop on Challenged Networks (CHANTS 2010)
Co-located with MobiCom 2010, 24 September 2010, Chicago, Illinois, USA
(workshop date tentative)

Challenged networks comprise those situations where communication is
desired, but traditional internet protocol architectures fail to provide
it effectively. Such networks may be characterized by a heterogeneous mix
of nodes, nodal churn, and widely varying network conditions. Common
examples of challenged networks include high delay environments such as
inter-planetary networks, limited power environments such as sensor and
wildlife monitoring networks, and communication in settings that lack
infrastructure such as rural and remote areas, and military battlefields.
Challenged networks may also be found in everyday settings, when access
to traditional infrastructure is restricted, expensive, overly complex,
or rapidly changing. The goal of the challenged network engineer is to
design and implement systems for effective and efficient communication
in this diverse range of conditions.

The workshop solicits papers and demos relating to the following topics:
* Architecture, design, implementation, and evaluation of communication
systems for challenged networks
* Analysis and characterization of challenged networks and protocols
* Case studies involving challenged network solutions in various stages
of development or use
* Delay/disruption-tolerant networking (DTNs)
* Applications in challenged networks
* Configuration, management, and monitoring of challenged networks
* Security concerns and solutions in challenged networks
* Test and simulation tools for evaluating challenged network systems
* Applications of challenged networking techniques to communication in
daily life

Selected papers will be forward-looking, will describe their relationship
to existing work, and will have implications for ongoing or future research.
We aim to accept approximately 12 papers, and to have a highly interactive
workshop. Demos have been an integral part of CHANTS, and we aim to accept
up to ten demos. Paper authors who can also run a demo of their work are
encouraged to do so. In exceptional cases where live demos are not
practical, poster or video presentations are acceptable.

Submission Instructions:
Submitted papers must be no more than 8 pages long, and should adhere to
the standard ACM conference proceedings format

Paper submissions will be handled via EDAS

Demo abstracts (to be published as part of the proceedings) shall be at
most 3 pages plus a one page description of the precise setup and

Demo proposals should be emailed to both CHANTS co-chairs by 18 June.

Important Dates:
Abstract Registration: 21 May 2010
Submission Deadline: 28 May 2010
Demo Submission: 18 June 2010
Acceptance Notification: 1 July 2010
Camera Ready Due: 15 July 2010
