MobiHoc 2013

Call For Papers

ACM MobiHoc is the premier international symposium dedicated to addressing the challenges emerging from wireless ad hoc networking and computing.

With its highly selective technical program, the symposium 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.

We invite paper submissions on mobile ad hoc networks, wireless sensor networks, wireless mesh networks, vehicular networks, and ad hoc computing systems, with the main focus being on the issues at and above the MAC layer.

Physical layer papers are also welcome, provided that they also address cross-layer networking issues. The areas of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Applications and middleware support
  • Transport, network, and MAC protocols
  • Energy efficiency
  • Location discovery
  • Cross-layer design and control
  • Modeling and performance analysis
  • Functional computation and data aggregation
  • Network resilience, fault-tolerance, and reliability
  • Scaling laws and fundamental limits
  • Network coding
  • Opportunistic and delay-tolerant networks
  • Vehicular networks
  • Cognitive radio networks
  • Trust, security, and privacy
  • Distributed social networks and self-organization
  • Distributed sensing, actuation, control, and co-ordination
  • System design and testbeds
  • Measurements from experimental systems

The symposium encourages the submission of foundational studies, including theoretical explorations as well as novel architectures and protocols that identify new challenges in the network design, innovative services, and applications that may stimulate further research in times to come.

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

Original Paper Submission Guidelines

All submissions will be handled electronically and must be in PDF format. Paper submissions for regular papers must be limited to 10 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. Before submitting your paper, please check the description of the conference scope. Instructions on paper submission are available here. Note that the margin must be 1 inch on all sides. Please direct any questions about the paper submission process to the Program Co-Chairs.
