EAI ADHOCNETS 2020 : (Virtual) 12th EAI International Conference on Ad Hoc Networks
Call For Papers
Due to the safety concerns and travel restrictions caused by COVID-19, EAI ADHOCNETS 2020 will take place online in a live stream.
Non-authors and Co-Authors of already registered papers can register for access to the live stream completely free of charge.
The annual International Conference on Ad Hoc Networks (AdHocNets) focuses on ad hoc networking technologies and their applications. An ad hoc network is a wireless system, in which mobile or static nodes are connected using wireless links and cooperate to self-organize into a network without the requirement for any infrastructure such as access points or base stations. In recent years, ad hoc networks have been attracting increased attention from the research and engineering communities.
The distributed and multi-hop nature of ad hoc networking as well as the highly dynamic topology of an ad hoc network due to node mobility has introduced many formidable challenges such as scalability, quality of service, reliability and security, and energy-constrained operations for the network. Ad hoc networking covers a variety of network paradigms including mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs), wireless sensor networks (WSNs), vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs), airborne networks, underwater networks, underground networks, personal area networks, and home networks, etc. It promises a wide range of applications in civilian, commercial, and military areas.
The aim of the annual AdHocNets conference is to provide a forum that brings together researchers and engineers from academia, government laboratories as well as industry to meet, network, exchange ideas and present their recent research work, and discuss future directions on all aspects of ad hoc networks. Following the success of ADHOCNETS’09-19, the 12th edition of the event, ADHOCNETS 2020, will be held in virtually from Paris Saclay. The conference will consist of keynote speeches, invited talks, and technical sessions.
The conference solicits original technical papers that were not previously published and are not currently under review for publication elsewhere. Papers should address technical challenges in any type of ad-hoc networks. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
• Mobile ad hoc networks (MANET)
• Vehicle ad hoc networks (VANET)
