Call for papers: Ad Hoc and Ubiquitous Computing

A special issue of International Journal of Communication Networks and Distributed Systems

Ad hoc and ubiquitous computing has received unprecedented attention from both academia and industry with the explosive growth of wireless communication devices. There are many applications for this novel technology which offers futuristic high bandwidth access for users, and more exciting and efficient services are expected to be available in the future.

In order to facilitate these diverse applications, the design issues of various wireless networks such as ad hoc, sensor and mesh networks are much more complicated and a number of challenges need to be addressed. Furthermore, due to the heterogeneous features of ubiquitous and ad hoc wireless networks, several issues such as energy efficiency, energy harvesting and cross-layer approaches used in networking and computing have also received considerable attention.

This special issue invites articles relating to mobile ad hoc networks as well as the different aspects of ubiquitous computing as a whole. Suitable topics include but are not limited to:
  • Mobile ad hoc networks
  • Ubiquitous computing
  • Data and resource management in ubiquitous and ad hoc networks
  • Routing protocols for ad hoc networks
  • Cross-layer design of routing protocols for ubiquitous and ad hoc networks
  • QoS in ad hoc networks
  • Bandwidth management in ad hoc networks
  • Delay management in ad hoc networks
  • Security in ad hoc networks
  • Energy-efficient routing protocols for ad hoc networks
  • Energy-harvesting technologies in ubiquitous networks
  • IDS for ad hoc networks
  • Real time applications in ad hoc networks
  • Vehicular ad hoc networks
Important Dates
Paper submission deadline: 30 November, 2011
Notification of acceptance: 1 February, 2012
Submission of final revised paper: 1 March, 2012

Hello. Being infrastructure-less and without central administration control, wireless ad-hoc networking is playing a more and more important role in extending the coverage for traditional wireless infrastructure (cellular networks, wireless LAN, etc). I found two new books on these subject. They are free to download, or you can just read them on online reading platform. They are: “Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks: Protocol Design” at http://www.intechopen.com/books/show/title/mobile-ad-hoc-networks-protocol-design and “Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks: Applications” at http://www.intechopen.com/books/show/title/mobile-ad-hoc-networks-applications . Hope you will found it useful. Cheers!!
