The Series on Adhoc and Sensor Networks of the IEEE Communications Magazine intends to provide the latest developments in this very rich and exciting domain. The Series explores in depth the concept of ad hoc and sensor networking, highlighting the recent research achievements in the field, and also providing insight into theoretical and practical issues related to the development of these networks from different perspectives. This series offers a relevant forum for both academic and industrial research, covering, at the same time, the theory, the practice and the state of the art of ad hoc and sensor networking. The special focus of this FT aims to explore the ad hoc and sensor networks research and development related to social and mobile solutions: communications, applications, algorithms and systems as well as services and computing. Thus, we are interested in articles that involve people, networked sensors, mobile phones and/or sensing context, how they interact and how they perform. Both original research and review papers are welcome. Possible topics of social and mobile solutions in ad hoc and sensor networking include but are not limited to: - Architectures and design - Social and Mobile Systems - Communication issues - Pervasive computing - Human Mobility - Analysis, simulation, and measurement - Real Experiments Campaign - Social and Mobile Applications - Mobile Phone Sensing - Social and economic aspects This list is not exhaustive; submissions related to new and interesting ideas relating broadly to Social and Mobile Solutions in Ad Hoc and Sensor Networking are encouraged. IEEE Communications Magazine is read by tens of thousands of Communications Society members. The papers will also be available on the internet through Communications Magazine Interactive, the WWW edition of the magazine. Details about IEEE Communications Magazine can be found at http://www.comsoc.org/ci/.

You will need to register and then proceed to the author center. On the manuscript details page, please select Ad Hoc and Sensor Networks Series from the drop down menu. Articles should be tutorial in nature, with the intended audience being all members of the communications technology community. They should be written in a style comprehensible to readers outside the specialty of the article. Mathematical equations should not be used (in justified cases up to three simple equations are allowed). Articles should not exceed 4500 words. Figures and tables should be limited to a combined total of six. The number of archivable references is recommended to not exceed 15. In some rare cases, more mathematical equations, figures, and tables may be allowed if well-justified. In general, however, mathematics should be avoided; instead, references to papers containing the relevant mathematics should be provided. Complete guidelines for preparation of the manuscript are posted at http://www.comsoc.org/commag/paper-submission-guidelines. Please submit a pdf (preferred) or MS WORD formatted paper via Manuscript Central (http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/commag-ieee). Register or log in, and go to Author Center. Follow the instructions there. In your submission, please indicate in the sub-title that the paper is to be considered for this Feature Topic, and not as a regular submission to the Series on Adhoc and Sensor Networks, as follows: PAPER TITLE Paper submitted to the Feature Topic on Social and Mobile Solutions in Ad Hoc and Sensor Networking Series on Adhoc and Sensor Networks SCHEDULE FOR THE SPECIAL ISSUE Manuscript Submission Date: January 11, 2016 Decision Notification: March 28, 2016 Final Manuscript Due Date: April 25, 2016 Publication Date: July 2016 _____________________________________________________________________ SOCNET is a service of INSNA, the professional association for social network researchers (http://www.insna.org).
