The 12th International Conference on Ad Hoc Networks (ADHOCNETS 2020)

*November 17-18, 2020 (will be held virtually)* 

*Paper submission deadline: **July 06, 2020 (extended)*

EAI is actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation to ensure the safety,
comfort and quality of experience for attendees and a successful course of
the event. EAI is committed to holding the conference in 2020 and Accepted
Authors who are unable to attend the event in person will be given
an option to present their submission online. In case the situation
prevents the event from taking place in its original location, it will be
held fully in an interactive, live online setting.

*Scope: *

The annual International Conference on Ad Hoc Networks (AdHocNets) focuses
on ad hoc networking technologies and their applications. An ad hoc network
is a wireless system, in which mobile or static nodes are connected using
wireless links and cooperate to self-organize into a network without the
requirement for any infrastructure such as access points or base stations.
In recent years, ad hoc networks have been attracting increased attention
from the research and engineering communities.

The distributed and multi-hop nature of ad hoc networking as well as the
highly dynamic topology of an ad hoc network due to node mobility has
introduced many formidable challenges such as scalability, quality of
service, reliability and security, and energy-constrained operations for
the network. Ad hoc networking covers a variety of network paradigms
including mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs), wireless sensor networks (WSNs),
vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs), airborne networks, underwater networks,
underground networks, personal area networks, and home networks, etc. It
promises a wide range of applications in civilian, commercial, and military

The aim of the annual AdHocNets conference is to provide a forum that
brings together researchers and engineers from academia, government
laboratories as well as industry to meet, network, exchange ideas and
present their recent research work, and discuss future directions on all
aspects of ad hoc networks. Following the success of ADHOCNETS’09-19, the
12th edition of the event, ADHOCNETS 2020, will be held in virtually from
Paris Saclay. The conference will consist of keynote speeches, invited
talks, and technical sessions.


The conference solicits original technical papers that were not previously
published and are not currently under review for publication elsewhere.
Papers should address technical challenges in any type of ad-hoc networks.
