MobiHoc 2006

The 7th ACM International Symposium on Mobile Ad Hoc Networking and Computing

May 22-25, 2006, Florence, Italy

Sponsored by ACM SIGMOBILE

ACM MobiHoc is the premier international meeting dedicated to addressing challenges emerging from wireless ad hoc networking and computing. This year's symposium will include a highly selective technical program, as well as hands-on research demonstrations, keynote, panel, and tutorials.

We invite paper, poster, and demonstration submissions on mobile ad hoc networks, wireless sensor networks, wireless mesh networks, and ad hoc computing systems, with the focus being on issues at and above the MAC layer. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Applications, operating system, and middleware support
  • Transport, network, and MAC protocols
  • Energy-efficient algorithms
  • Quality of Service issues
  • Location discovery techniques
  • Network scaling and limits
  • Cross layer design
  • Network resilience, fault-tolerance, and reliability
  • Trust, security and privacy
  • Distributed sensing, actuation, control, and coordination
  • Measurements and practical experience from experimental systems and testbeds
  • Modeling and performance evaluation


Papers must report new results substantiated by experimentation, simulation, or analysis. All submissions will be handled electronically and must be in PDF format. Papers must not exceed 12 pages (US letter size, 8.5 x 11 inches) including text, figures and references. The font size must be at least 10 points. Accepted papers will be published in the symposium proceedings. All submitted papers would be judged based on their quality through double-blind reviewing, where the identities of the authors are withheld from the reviewers. Authors' names must NOT appear in the paper or in the PDF file. Submitted papers must not be currently under review for any other publication. Instructions on paper submission and formatting are available on the symposium webpage. Please direct any questions about the paper submission process to the Program Co-Chairs.


Posters presenting early work and preliminary results are solicited. The poster session will provide an excellent opportunity for initial feedback on early research results. Poster descriptions of no more than 3 pages (US letter size 8.5 x 11 inches) using font size 10 should be submitted to the Poster Co-Chairs Carla-Fabiana Chiasserini <> and Wendi B. Heinzelman <>. Please include the words "Poster Abstract:" to precede the title on the cover page. A selected subset of poster abstracts will be published in ACM Mobile Computing and Communications Review.


Poster Submission Deadline: April 3, 2006

Acceptance Notifications: April 14, 2006


Technical demonstration of experimental ad hoc networking and computing systems are solicited. One-page demo descriptions, including a list of any required supporting equipment, should be sent to the Demo Co-Chairs Srdan Capkun <> and Xudong Wang <> before March 15, 2006.


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. Potential instructors are requested to submit a tutorial proposal of at most 5 pages, including a biographical sketch, to the Tutorial Co-Chairs before January 15, 2006.


Panels are solicited that examine innovative, controversial, or otherwise provocative issues of interest. Panel proposals should not exceed 2 pages, including biographical sketches of the panelists. Potential panel organizers should contact the General Chair before December 15, 2005.
