Call For Papers



Med-Hoc-Net 2011
The 10th IFIP Annual Mediterranean Ad Hoc Networking Workshop

June 12-15, 2011
Favignana Island, Sicily, Italy

Wireless ad hoc networks have attracted the attention of the research community
in the last several years. Now that the fundamental issues and challenges have
been clearly assessed, the focus is partially shifting to new issues, which
include application scenarios (road safety, disaster recovery, sensors,
actuators, etc.), data-centric operation, autonomous organization, optimization
and control, ability to retain operation under intermittent connectivity, and
service creation and support. Moreover, new and exciting challenges are posed by
closely related networks such as wireless mesh networks, sensor networks, and
vehicular networks, delay tolerant and opportunistic networks. Finally, the
today's market explosion of smart phones is creating new opportunities for
social networks, whose thorough understanding requires to combine opportunistic
networking aspects with comprehension of social behavior and mobility patterns.

Med-Hoc-Net is a major annual international workshop, aiming to serve as a
platform for researchers and visionaries from academia, research labs, and
industry. Following Sicily (2006), Corfu (2007), Palma de Mallorca (2008), Haifa
(2009), and Juan-les-pins (2010), Med-Hoc-Net 2011 will take place in Favignana
Island (Italy).

The papers solicited cover a variety of topics related to ad hoc, wireless,
sensor, mesh, delay tolerant, and opportunistic networks, including but not
limited to:

-Routing algorithms and protocols
-MAC protocols, scheduling, power control, and resource allocation
-Transport layer protocols for multi-hop networks
-Middleware for ad hoc networks
-Application driven architectures and protocols
-Sensor network applications and protocols
-Vehicular networks
-Cognitive radio networks
-Integration of ad hoc networks with wireless access networks
-Implementations, testbeds, and prototypes
-Technology related issues (IEEE 802.11, Bluetooth, ZigBee, IEEE 802.16, etc.)
-Self organization and network reconfiguration
-Optimization models and algorithms
-Resource and service discovery
-Use of advanced antenna technologies (MIMO, beam forming, etc.)
-Security and privacy
-Delay tolerant networks
-Exploitation of social and mobility patterns for opportunistic networking
-Mobile social networks
-Security and privacy
-Participatory and urban sensing
-Underwater wireless networks
