Wireless ad hoc networks have attracted the attention of the research community in the last several years, mostly because of the growing interest in a connected world, where people are - virtually - omnipresent. Next generation wireless networks, heterogeneous access technologies, ad-hoc and sensor networks, and new Internet technologies are part of this pervasive environment.
MED-HOC-NET 2012, as its previous 10 predecessors focuses on communication networking research, especially on new issues in Wireless Ad-Hoc Networks, which include Application Scenarios, Data-centric Operation, Autonomous Organization, Optimization and Control, Operation under Intermittent Connectivity, and Service Creation and Support. The scope of the workshop also includes new and exciting challenges in wireless mesh networks, sensor networks, vehicular networks, delay tolerant and opportunistic networks, and the opportunities provided or stemming from the social networks paradigm.
As a major annual international workshop, the 11th MED-HOC-NET aims to serve as a platform for researchers and visionaries from the academia, the research laboratories, and the industry to present their latest work.
Following recent successful conferences in Sicily (2006), Corfu (2007), Palma de Mallorca (2008), Haifa (2009), Juan-les-pins (2010), and Favignana Island (2011), Med-Hoc-Net 2012 will take place in Ayia Napa (CYPRUS).
