Call for Papers - in PDF format

  Conference Scope

Recent research on wireless networks and mobile computing has concentrated on single-hop networks, where network nodes communicate directly with a fixed infrastructure, such as cellular or satellite systems. However in ad-hoc and sensor networks multi-hop scenarios such as conference, hospital, battlefield, rescue, and monitoring scenarios are supported, where network nodes communicate via other network nodes. This conference addresses the area of ad-hoc and sensor systems, covering topics ranging from physical issues to the applications aspects.

  Possible topics of interest include, but are not limited to

  • MAC protocols for ad-hoc and sensor networks (801.11, Bluetooth, etc)
  • Routing protocols (unicast, multicast, broadcast, geocast, etc)
  • Power-aware and energy-efficient design
  • Directional and smart antennas for ad-hoc networks
  • QoS, security, and fault-tolerant issues
  • Location and mobility management
  • Topology construction and coverage maintenance
  • Distributed Algorithms (self-configuration, scheduling, synchronization, etc)
  • Data gathering, fusion, and dissemination
  • Operating system and middleware support
  • Complexity analysis of algorithms
  • Analytical, mobility, and validation models
  • Applications of ad-hoc and sensor networks
  Paper submission

All submissions will be handled electronically. Authors should prepare a PDF or PS of their full papers and submit them through EDAS by May 8, 2005. Papers must not exceed 10 single-spaced and two-column pages using at least 10 point size type on 8.5 x 11 inches pages. See style files and instructions for details.

Authors will have to submit a "Copyright Release" with the final manuscript for all papers accepted for inclusion in the proceedings. For further information see submission guidelines...

  Workshops

Proposals for workshops are solicited. The selection criteria include the expertise and experience of the workshop coordinators and relevance to the central themes of the conference. Proposals of at most 4 pages, including 1-page biographical sketch, should be submitted to the Workshops Chair, Ivan Stojmenovic ( ivan@site.uottawa.ca ), by April 30, 2005.
