VenueCains, Australia Australia



Topics/Call fo Papers

The annual International Conference on Ad Hoc Networks (AdHocNets) focuses on ad hoc networking technologies and their applications. An ad hoc network is a wireless system, in which nodes (mobile or static) are connected using wireless links and cooperate to self-organize into a network without the requirement for any infrastructures such as access points or base stations. In recent years, ad hoc networks have been attracting an increased attention from the research and engineering communities. The distributed and multi-hop nature of ad hoc networking as well as the highly dynamic topology of ad hoc networks due to node mobility has introduced many formidable challenges such as scalability, quality of service, reliability and security, and energy constrained operations for the networks. Ad hoc networking covers a variety of network paradigms including mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs), sensor networks, vehicular networks, underwater networks, airborne networks, underground networks, personal area networks, device-to-device (D2D) communications in 5G cellular networks, and home networks etc. It promises a wide range of applications in civilian, commercial, and military areas.
The aim of the annual AdHocNets conference is to provide a forum that brings together researchers and engineers from academia, government laboratories as well as industry to meet, network, exchange ideas and present their recent research work, and discuss future directions on all aspects of ad hoc networks. Following the success of ADHOCNETS'09-17, the 10th edition of the event, ADHOCNETS 2018 will be held in Cairns, Australia, on September 20-23, 2018. The conference will consist of keynote speeches, technical sessions, and associated workshops. A workshop will be a half or one day event that focuses more on recent development and emerging applications in the area of ad hoc networking.
The conference solicits original technical papers that were not previously published and are not currently under review for publication elsewhere. Papers should address technical challenges in any type of ad-hoc networks, including mobile ad hoc networks, sensor networks, vehicular networks, personal area networks, body area Networks, or home networks. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Network architectural and protocol design
- Cross-layer design
- Non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA)
- MAC, routing, and transport protocols
- Resource allocation and management
- Network control and management
- Power control and management
- Topology control and management
- Quality of service provisioning
- Service discovery
- Ranging and node localization
- Time synchronization
- Data fusion
- Network scalability and capacity
- Reliability and fault tolerance
