OVERVIEW: 
Ad hoc networks, which cover a variety of network paradigms for specific
purposes, such as mobile ad hoc networks, sensor networks, vehicular
networks, underwater networks, underground networks, local area networks,
personal area networks, home networks, etc., promise a broad range of
applications in civilian, commercial, and military areas. The aim of the
annual International Conference on Ad Hoc Networks (AdHocNets) is to provide
a forum that brings together researchers from academia as well as
practitioners from industry to meet and exchange ideas and recent research
work on all aspects of ad hoc networks. AdHocNets¡¯09 is the first edition
of this event, which will be held in Niagara Falls, Canada, in September
2009. The conference will consist of technical sessions, panels, and
workshops. The technical sessions will present original and fundamental
research advances while the panels and workshops focus on development and
application issues in this hot field.

HIGHTLIGHTS:

* Prof. Ian F. Akyildiz, Georgia Institute of Technology, will deliver a
keynote address.
* The best papers will be considered for publication in Elsevier Ad Hoc
Networks Journal.

published and are not currently under review for publication elsewhere.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* Mobile Ad Hoc networks
