IEEE GC - AHSN 2018 : IEEE Globecom 2018 - Ad Hoc and Sensor Networking Symposium
Call For Papers
Scope and Topics of Interest
Ad hoc networks are highly adaptive and self-organizing networks that do not rely on pre-existing communication infrastructure. Sensor and actuator networks consist of multiple devices that are usually sparsely distributed, and need to operate in an autonomic and energy-efficient manner. These networks have been the focus of interest of both academia and industry during the past few years, given their large application scope both in the military and civilian fields, ranging from environmental monitoring, body area networks for healthcare, to vehicular networks for road safety, and support for communications in the battle field. This interest is ever increasing now, with the gamut and diversity of sensors, devices and systems that are being connected to the Internet of Things, transforming the way we live and work, and making for smart cities, and smart industries. Notwithstanding the substantial advancements made through past research in the area, important challenges still need to be tackled. These include spectrum allocation and technology coexistence, autonomy and self-healing capabilities, and security, just to name a few.
The Ad Hoc and Sensor Networking Symposium at GC 2018 aims at providing a forum for sharing ideas among researchers and practitioners working on the state-of-the-art solutions related to Ad Hoc and Sensor Networks.
