The 9th ACM International Symposium on Mobile Ad Hoc Networking and Computing

May 26-30, 2008, Hong Kong

Sponsored by ACM SIGMOBILE

ACM MobiHoc is the premier international symposium dedicated to addressing challenges emerging from the design and applications of wireless communication networks. This symposium will be held in Hong Kong during the week of May 26, 2008. It will bring together researchers and practitioners from a broad spectrum of wireless networking research to present the most up-to-date results and achievements in the field. The symposium will include a highly selective technical program, hands-on research demonstrations, a distinguished keynote address, panels, and tutorials.

We invite paper, poster, and demonstration submissions on a variety of wireless ad hoc networks such as mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs), wireless mesh networks, wireless sensor networks, wireless personal area networks, vehicular networks, RFID networks, and hybrid networks including unmanned aerial vehicles and underwater unmanned vehicles.

The symposium solicits high-quality theoretical as well as practical works on a broad range of issues important to the design, performance control, and security of wireless ad hoc networks. Areas of interest include but are not limited to:

The symposium especially encourages the submission of exploratory studies that identify new challenges in the network design, innovative services, and applications that may stimulate far-reaching future research.

This year's symposium will introduce a Best Paper Award among all the papers submitted to the conference.
