Since its creation in 2002, the International Conference on Ad Hoc Networks and Wireless (ADHOC-NOW) has become a well-established and well known event dedicated to wireless and mobile computing. It serves as a forum for interesting discussions on
ongoing research and new contributions. The conference addresses both experimental and theoretical research in the areas of ad hoc networks, sensor networks, mesh networks and vehicular networks. It focuses on all issues from link layer up to the application layer. The thirteenth edition of ADHOC-NOW will for the first time be organized in Benidorm, Spain, from the 22nd to the 27th of June, 2014.
We seek original contributions as work in progress, experimental and theoretical research in Wireless Sensor, Ad-Hoc, Mobile and Wireless Networks. Submissions must not be published or under review for another conference or journal. We are interested, but not limited to, research papers in any of the following areas:
-Ad Hoc Networks of Autonomous Intelligent Systems
-Analytic Methods and Modeling for Performance Evaluation
-Ad Hoc Network Applications and Architectures
-Distributed Algorithms for Ad Hoc Networks
-Location Discovery and Management
-Mobility Handling and Utilization
-Wireless Mesh Networks
-Mobile Ad Hoc Computing Platforms
-Systems and Testbeds
-Mobile Social Networking
-Routing Protocols (Unicast, Multicast, etc.)
-Secure Services and Protocols
The conference proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag, as part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Authors are invited to submit either regular papers or short papers. Regular papers should not exceed 14 pages in LNCS format. Short papers must be limited to up to 4 pages in LNCS format. The paper should provide sufficient detail to allow the Program Committee to evaluate its validity, quality, and relevance. Each accepted paper will be included in the conference proceedings, provided at least one author of the paper registers to present the paper at the conference.
High-quality articles will be invited for submission to a special issue of Ad Hoc & Sensor Wireless Networks and the International Journal of Parallel, Emergent and Distributed Systems.
