[PVS] Call for Papers: MED-HOC-NET 2012


11th Annual Mediterranean Ad Hoc Networking Workshop
Ayia Napa, Cyprus, 19 - 22 June 2012


Wireless ad hoc networks have attracted the attention of the research
community in the last several years, mostly because of the growing interest
in a connected world, where people are
virtually omnipresent. Next generation wireless networks, heterogeneous
access technologies, ad-hoc and sensor networks, and new Internet
technologies are part of this
pervasive environment.
MED-HOC-NET 2012, as its previous 10 predecessors focuses on communication
networking research, especially on new issues in Wireless Ad-Hoc Networks,
which include Application Scenarios, Data-centric Operation, Autonomous
Organization, Optimization and
Control, Operation under Intermittent Connectivity, and Service Creation
and Support. The scope of the workshop also includes new and exciting
challenges in wireless mesh networks,
sensor networks, vehicular networks, delay tolerant and opportunistic
networks, and the opportunities provided or stemming from the social
networks paradigm. As a major annual international workshop, the 11th
MED-HOC-NET aims to serve as a
platform for researchers and visionaries from the academia, the research
laboratories, and the industry to present their latest work.
Following recent successful conferences in Sicily (2006), Corfu (2007),
Palma de Mallorca (2008), Haifa (2009), Juan-les-pins (2010), and Favignana
Island (2011), Med-Hoc-Net 2012
will take place in Ayia Napa (CYPRUS).

Workshop Topics
The papers solicited cover a variety of topics related to ad hoc, wireless,
sensor, mesh, delay tolerant, and opportunistic networks, including but not
limited to:

*        Routing algorithms and protocols
*        MAC protocols, scheduling, power control, and resource allocation
*        Transport layer protocols for multi-hop networks
*        Middleware for ad hoc networks
*        Application driven architectures and protocols
*        Sensor network applications and protocols
*        Vehicular networks
*        Cognitive radio networks
*        Integration of ad hoc networks with wireless access networks
*        Implementations, testbeds, and prototypes
*        Technology related issues (IEEE 802.11, Bluetooth, ZigBee, IEEE
802.16, etc.)
*        Self-organization and network (re)configuration
*        Optimization models and algorithms
*        Resource and service discovery
*        Energy-efficient networking
*        Exploitation of social and mobility patterns for opportunistic
*        Mobile social networks
*        Security and privacy
*        Positioning and localization
*        Participatory and urban sensing
*        Underwater wireless networks
