[DMANET] AdHoc-Now 2012 || July 9-11,2012 - Belgrade, Serbia

Call for Papers
The 11th International Conference on Ad Hoc Networks and Wireless
Belgrade, Serbia, July 9-11, 2012

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. In the
ERA Conference Ranking Exercise, ADHOC-NOW is considered as a B
conference (same ranking as IEEE conferences ICC, Globecom, MASS,
DCOSS, etc.) ADHOC-NOW 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 eleventh edition of this series will take place in Belgrade, Serbia,
from the 9th to the 11th of July, 2012.

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 Submissions must not be published or under review for another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
* Algorithmic Issues
* Analytic Methods and Modeling for Performance Evaluation
* Applications and Architectures
* Autonomous Intelligent Systems
* Computing Platforms, Systems and Testbeds
* Data Communication Protocols
* Delay-Tolerant Networking
* Distributed Algorithms
* Energy Efficiency
* Geometric Graphs
* Location Discovery and Management
