CALL FOR PAPERS
                          (Med-Hoc-Net 2008)

               June 23-27 2008, Palma de Mallorca, Spain


Ad hoc networks have attracted the attention of the research
community in the last several years. Now that some of the
fundamental issues and challenges of ad hoc networking have
been clearly assessed, the focus is partially shifting to new
issues, which include application scenarios (road safety, disaster
recovery, sensors and actuators, etc.), autonomous organization
and operation, optimization and control, service creation and
support, middleware. Moreover, wireless MESH networking is
emerging as an "ad hoc spin-off" aimed at extending and integrating
the multi-hop paradigm with more traditional networking, which poses
new and exciting technical challenges.

Med-Hoc-Net 2008 is the major annual international workshop aiming
to serve as a platform for researchers and visionaries from academia,
research labs, and industry from all over the world. Sharing ideas,
views, results, and experiences in the field of wireless multi-hop
networking is what Med-Hoc-Net 2008 intends to be about. Anything
from theoretical and experimental achievements, to innovative ad hoc
systems, prototyping efforts, and case studies is of interest to the
Med-Hoc-Net community.

The papers solicited in Med-Hoc-Net 2008 cover a variety of topics
related to ad hoc and MESH networks, including but not limited to:

- Novel multi-hop wireless network architectures
- Routing algorithms and protocols
- MAC protocols, scheduling, power control and radio resource
- Transport layer protocols for multi-hop networks
- Middleware for ad hoc networks
- Application driven architectures and protocols
- Sensor network applications and protocols
- Vehicular networks
- Integration of ad hoc networks with wireless access networks
- Implementations, testbeds, and prototypes
- Technology related issues (IEEE 802.11, Bluetooth, ZigBee,
     IEEE 802.16, IEEE 802.20, etc.)
- Self organization and network reconfiguration
- Optimization models and algorithms
- Resource and service discovery
- Call admission and traffic shaping policies for ad-hoc networks
- Use of advanced antenna technologies (MIMO, beam forming, etc.)
- QoS support
- Security and privacy
