WWAN 2005

2nd International Workshop on Wireless Ad Hoc Networking

to be held in conjunction with
The 25th IEEE International Conference on Distributed Computing Systems (ICDCS-2005)
Columbus, Ohio, USA, June 6-9, 2005


Technical program available


Wireless networks and mobile computing research has until recently concentrated on single-hop networks (network nodes communicating directly to a fixed infrastructure), such as cellular or satellite systems. Wireless ad hoc networking covers multi-hop scenarios (network nodes communicating via other network nodes) such as conference, hospital, battlefield, rescue, and monitoring scenarios. Wireless ad-hoc networks are formed by a set of hosts that communicate with each other over a wireless channel. Each node has the ability to communicate directly with another node in its physical neighborhood. They operate in a self-organized and decentralized manner and message communication takes place via multi-hop spreading. A packet is sent to its target node through a set of intermediate nodes that act as routers. Particular ad hoc network systems include packet radio networks, sensor networks, personal communication systems, rooftop networks, and wireless local area networks.

This workshop covers the area of ad hoc networking, from physical issues up to applications aspects. In particular, it will cover physical, data link, network and transport layers, as well as applications, security, simulation and power management issues in sensor, local area, personal, and mobile ad hoc networks. It is the goal of this workshop to review ad hoc protocols and models and to reflect the latest in the state of the art in ad hoc networks. It seeks to provide up to date information on research and development activities in the rapidly growing area of ad hoc networks.

The first edition of WWAN held last year during ICDCS-2004 (Tokyo, Japan) was organized by David Simplot-Ryl and Ivan Stojmenovic. In response to the Call for Papers, 42 papers from 20 different countries had been submitted. Based on three review reports per paper, they was classified as accept, reject or discuss. For those papers in the discuss list, additional opinions were sought. As a result, a total of 21 papers were selected for presentation at WWAN 2004 and were organized in 7 sessions.

Topics of Interest

We are seeking papers that describe original and unpublished contributions addressing various aspects of ad hoc networking. Possible topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Paper Submission

Submit a full paper of about 6 pages (IEEE Computer Society proceedings Manuscripts: two column, single-spaced), including figures and references, using 10 font size, and number each page. Accepted papers will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press, as proceedings of the ICDCS'2005 workshops. You can use the IEEE Computer Society Press Proceedings Author Guidelines (http://computer.org/cspress/instruct.htm).

Prepare your paper in PDF file only (Adobe format), paper title, authors' names, affiliations, postal address, phone, fax, and e-mail address of the authors, about 200-250 word abstract, and five keywords. Send by mail your submission to both co-chairs (David.Simplot@lifl.fr and ivan@site.uottawa.ca).
