Call For Papers

WONS 2016 - Call For Papers

The 12th Annual Conference on
Wireless On-demand Network Systems and Services

20-22 January 2016
Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy

Wireless on-demand network systems and services have become pivotal in
shaping our future networked world. Starting as a niche application over
Wi-Fi, they can now be found in mainstream technologies like Bluetooth
LE, LTE Direct and Wireless LANs, and have become the cornerstone of
upcoming networking paradigms including mesh and sensor networks, cloud
networks, vehicular networks, disruption tolerant and opportunistic
networks, and in-body networks.

The challenges of this exciting research field are numerous. Examples
include how to make smart use of these novel technologies when multiple
technologies or a mix of permanent services and on-demand networking
opportunities are available to a network node, how to provide robust
services in highly dynamic environments, how to efficiently employ and
operate heavily resource-constrained devices, and how to develop robust
and lightweight algorithms for self-organization and adaptation.

WONS, now numbering twelve editions, has established itself as a high
quality forum to address these and related challenges. After a one-year
break, WONS is able to continue to provide a global platform for rich
interactions between experts in their fields, discussing innovative
contributions in a stimulating environment.

This announcement solicits original contributions of high-quality
research providing novel insights on all aspects of wireless on-demand
networks and systems; from protocol and network design, modeling,
performance evaluation, profitability models, energy efficiency, QoS
models and mechanisms, practical implementations, service level aspects,
application use-cases, to the integration of multiple wireless network

Topics of interest comprise, but are not limited to:
* Cognitive radio networks
* Cross-layer design
* Energy-efficient protocols and power management
* Heterogeneous wireless networks
* Implementations and testbeds
* Integration and co-existence of heterogeneous technologies
* Intra-body and biomedical on-demand systems
* Green wireless networks
* Localization and mobility management
* MAC and advanced PHY technologies
* Middleware aspects
* Mobile peer-to-peer systems
* Mobile computing and services
* Modeling and optimization
* Network management
* New architectures for on-demand wireless systems
* Novel applications and services
* Opportunistic, delay-tolerant, and dissemination-based protocols
* Performance evaluation through simulations and experiments
* Pervasive and ubiquitous computing
* Security, privacy, and trust
* Social and economic aspects

Special Session

WONS 2016 also solicits original contributions to a special session on
Community Networks and Services.

Community Networks are bottom-up initiatives that mix wireless mesh
networks with wired networks to provide Internet connectivity but also
to enable the on-demand creation of local applications. Contributions
are welcomed on the related technical open issues (routing protocols,
distributed applications, wireless-wired interaction etc.), social
challenges (legal organization and hurdles, instruments to manage
community networks, privacy issues etc.) and on hands-on experience on
the realization and maintenance of networks.

Manuscript submissions

Authors are invited to submit double-column full (up to 8 pages) and
short papers (up to 4 pages) as a PDF file in IEEE format with a font
size no smaller than 10pt. Short papers should present future research
directions and ongoing work with visionary, innovative ideas; accepted
short papers will populate poster sessions at the conference and will be
included in the conference proceedings. Submitted papers must not have
been published elsewhere and must not be currently under review by
another conference or journal. Submission implies the willingness of at
least one of the authors to register and present the paper.

Further submission instructions are published on the conference web site
