"High Performance Mobile Opportunistic Systems"
Opportunistic networks are an emerging networking paradigm where communication between the source and destination occurs on-the-fly and depends on the availability of communication resources. Opportunistic communication paradigm heavily benefits from the heterogeneous networking and communication infrastructure that currently exist, e.g., mobile networks, P2P networks, with the supporting technologies in data management and system interoperability.
The SI aims at presenting state-of-the-art research and future trends in mobile and heterogeneous opportunistic networking and application paradigms, combining the mobile communication, mobility and resource management field, and scientifically presents the various concepts that contribute to enable high performance computing in these environments.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
•resource management (failure-aware, high-availability, efficiency, reliability, fault tolerance, etc.)
•data management (data gathering and fusion, aggregation, dissemination, source coding, signal processing, etc.)
•cooperative and opportunistic algorithms (cooperative PHY, relays, distributed signal processing, etc.)
•key functionalities (security, localization, privacy and authentication, self-*, synchronization, etc.)
•novel protocols (PHY level, MAC level, routing aspects, congestion and admission control, communication networking paradigms, etc.)
•self-adaptiveness (self-organization, self-stabilization, autonomic computing approaches, etc.)
•cross-layer and cross-functionality designs (channel coding, cross-layer interaction, protocols for cross-layering, etc.)
•performance evaluation and limitation (network capacity, metrics and new schemes’ evaluation through real-time or simulation, etc.)
•opportunistic storage (backup techniques, autonomic- management of storage, location-aware caching, etc.)
•energy consideration (optimization of energy-efﬁcient protocols/algorithms, energy-efﬁcient MAC, routing and cross-layer protocols, adaptive protocols, innovative power control techniques, novel applications, scalability issues, etc.)
•mobility models (mobility modeling, management and optimization, mobility effects, efficiency, conceptual models and applied certain patterns, human mobility, mobility aware protocols, service portability, etc.)
•implementation case studies (i.e. WSN, Ad-hoc, HAPs, etc. )
•simulation frameworks (tools, designs, module support and integration, novel performance analysis etc.)
Articles should be of novel research nature whereas only originally unpublished contributions and invited articles will be considered for the issue.
The papers should be formatted according to the ETT guidelines which can be found at http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/journal/10.1002/(ISSN)1541-8251/homepage/ForAuthors.html.
Instructions for submission:
Manuscripts must not have been previously published nor currently under
review by other journals or conferences. If the paper was published in a conference, the submitted manuscript should be a substantial extension of the conference paper.
Manuscripts should be submitted in PDF format with a separate cover letter, which contains the paper title, authors, affiliations, complete contact information (indicating the primary contact author), a 250-word abstract, and 3-5 keywords, via the web site for the Journal’s submission system at: http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/ett.
