The 10th International Conference on Ad Hoc Networks and Wireless

July 18-20, 2011,
Paderborn, Germany

Since its creation in 2002, ADHOC-NOW has become a well-established and
well-known international conference 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. In 2011, ADHOC-NOW will for the first
time be organized in Germany, in the beautiful city of Paderborn.

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 Submissions must not be published or under review for another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:

* Access Control
* Ad Hoc Networks of Autonomous Intelligent Systems
* Algorithmic Issues
* Analytic Methods and Modeling for Performance Evaluation
* Ad Hoc Network Applications and Architectures
* Delay-Tolerant Networking
* Distributed and Localized Algorithms
* Energy Efficiency
* Geometric Graphs
* Location Discovery and Management
* Mobility Handling and Utilization
* Mobile Ad Hoc Computing Platforms, Systems and Testbeds
* Mobile Social Networking
* Quality-of-Service
* Routing Protocols (Unicast, Multicast, etc.)
* Secure Services and Protocols
* Sensor and Actuator Networks
* Self-Configuration
* Service Discovery
* Time Synchronization
* Vehicular Networks
* Wireless Mesh Networks
* Wireless Internet

The conference proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag, as part of
the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series (pending). 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 a special issue of Ad Hoc & Sensor
Wireless Networks: An International Journal (AHSWN), SCIE-indexed.

Authors can upload either regular papers or short papers. Regular papers
should not exceed 14 pages (including a 150 word abstract, all figures,
tables and references) in Springer Verlag LNCS format. Short papers must be
limited to up to 4 pages in LNCS format. Acceptable formats for papers are
PS and PDF. All papers will be reviewed for technical merit.
