MobiHoc 2002 is the third of a series of annual meetings sponsored by ACM SIGMOBILE, focusing on the latest research in the rapidly growing area of mobile ad hoc networking and computing. The first MobiHoc was held in 2000 in Boston, Massachusetts, as a workshop affiliated with the MobiCom conference also sponsored by SIGMOBILE. Since then, MobiHoc has become a separate symposium, held in 2001 in Long Beach, California, and now in 2002 in Lausanne, Switzerland. Topics of interest include all areas of mobile and wireless ad hoc networking (above the physical layer), ad hoc computing, and sensor networks.


Technical papers describing original, previously unpublished research, not currently under review by another conference or journal, are solicited, particularly including visionary papers, experimental papers, and application-oriented papers. Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Routing protocols (unicast, multicast, geocast, content-based, etc.)

  • Media access techniques

  • Transport-layer issues

  • Mobile ad hoc computing platforms, systems, and testbeds

  • Applications for ad hoc networks

  • Low power and energy-efficient designs

  • Quality-of-service issues

  • Security and fault-tolerance issues

  • Self-configuration in ad hoc networks

  • Sensor and data fusion

  • Distributed algorithms for ad hoc networks (e.g., leader election and group management)

  • Biologically-inspired mechanisms for ad hoc networks

  • Location-based techniques

  • Analytical methods

  • Modeling and performance evaluation

Accepted papers will be printed in the symposium proceedings published by ACM. Please consult the Program Co-Chairs, J.J. Garcia-Luna-Aceves ( and David B. Johnson (, if you are uncertain whether your paper falls within the scope of the symposium.

Submission Instructions:

All submissions will be handled electronically and must be in PDF or PostScript format. Papers must not exceed 15 pages (US "Letter" size, 8.5 x 11 inches) in font no smaller than 10 points. Submitted papers should be unpublished and must not be currently under review for any other publication.

All submitted papers will be judged based on their technical merit through double-blind reviewing, where the identities of the authors are withheld from the reviewers. Authors' names must not appear in the paper or within the PDF or PostScript file.

To submit a paper, please refer to the paper submission instructions page. Questions about the submission process should be directed to the Program Co-Chairs.


Proposals for tutorials are solicited. Evaluation of proposals will be based on the expertise and experience of the instructors, and on the relevance of the subject matter for the symposium. Potential instructors are requested to submit a tutorial proposal of at most 5 pages, including a biographical sketch, to the Tutorial Co-Chairs, Mario Gerla ( or Adam Wolisz (, by the paper submission deadline below.
