CALL FOR PAPERS

EURASIP Journal on Wireless Communications and Networking

Special Issue on "Opportunistic and Delay Tolerant Networks"

http://www.hindawi.com/journals/wcn/si/odtn.html

===================================================================

Wireless and mobile computing advanced significantly in the last
decade. This opens new ways for mobile users to get connected to
each other. In particular, users have more and more the possibility
to spontaneously establish direct links between them without the
support of a preexisting infrastructure. Due to the natural
mobility of the users, it is likely that the resulting topology
be intermittently connected. This leads to two main issues. First,
nodes must find a way to benefit from contact opportunities
whenever possible. Second, given that inter-contact times are
unpredictable, applications must better \textit{tolerate delays.

In practice, opportunistic and delay-tolerant networks are much
closer to real situations than the legacy mobile ad hoc networks.
But this comes at the cost of more challenging problems, as
traditional communication architectures, commonly based on the
end-to-end principle, are not adapted to intermittently connected
scenarios. Although the research community has provided major
contributions in this area, there are still a lot of questions
that remain unanswered. These questions are both related to the
understanding of the fundamental aspects of such networks and how
to make them become a reality and coexist with other networks.

The goal of the proposed special issue is to help filling this
gap by presenting contributions ranging from theoretical
foundations to practical experiences in opportunistic and
delay-tolerant networks. As we intend to focus on both theoretical
and practical aspects of these networks, papers presenting
insights covering all levels of the communication architecture
will be welcome. Topics of interest include, but are not limited
to:

- Architectural principles of opportunistic and delay-tolerant
networks.

- Mathematical foundations of challenged networks.

- Participatory and opportunistic sensor networks.

- Tools and techniques for designing, analyzing, and building
opportunistic networks.

- Experimental deployments and measurement campaigns.

- Investigation of new interaction patterns among users.
