Call for Workshop Proposals

The 18th IEEE International Conference on Mobile Ad-Hoc and Smart
Systems (IEEE MASS 2021) is the meeting point for leading researchers in
the thriving area of wireless ad hoc communications, sensor, and
actuator networks. Topics of IEEE MASS cover a large range of scientific
areas, spanning topics from computer science, physics, embedded systems,
electrical engineering, control theory, as well as application areas
such as disaster recovery and rescue operations, environmental
monitoring, smart cities, smart grids, health applications, and many more.

Continuing this tradition, the 18th IEEE International Conference on
Mobile Ad-Hoc and Smart Systems (MASS) will be held in Denver, CO, USA,
in 2021. Since its very beginning in 2004, MASS also offers a range of
associated workshops, which cover special topics and applications in
wireless ad hoc and sensor networks. During the last years, up to ten
workshops have been held each year in conjunction with MASS, with some
of the workshops already having seen their seventh edition. Each
workshop will provide an arena for presentations and discussions about a
special topic of relevance to MASS. IEEE MASS 2021 now invites the
submission of workshop proposals.
