16th Annual Mediterranean Ad Hoc Networking Workshop
06/28/2017 to 06/30/2017
In the recent years the Internet evolution has undergone a remarkable and unstoppable change of trend, rooted on three main pillars, new technologies (cloud computing, SDN, NFV, etc.), broad connectivity (3G/4G, VANET, etc.), and the wide deployment of smart edge devices (smart phones, sensors, wearables, etc.), all setting the main concept for the Internet of Things (IoT), also encompassing scenarios such as smart cities, ITS (intelligent transportation systems), smart homes or e-health.
MED-HOC-NET 2017 extends its focus far beyond traditional networking concepts, highlighting new networking concepts related to the mentioned three main pillars developed for the future generation of network and cloud computing technologies. Med-hoc-net 2017 is willing to accommodate contributions on smart mobile scenarios, focusing on highly relevant developments but also preliminary ideas and concepts on the ICT area, aiming at facilitating the development of new technologies and services with a high societal impact.
Following recent successful conferences in Sicily (2006), Corfu (2007), Palma de Mallorca (2008), Haifa (2009), Juan-les-pins (2010), Favignana Island (2011), Cyprus (2012), Corsica (2013), Slovenia (2014) and Algarve (2015), Barcelona (2016), Med-Hoc-Net 2017 will take place in the city of Budva right in front of the Mediterranean Sea.
Med-Hoc-Net 2017 seeks original and unpublished contributions describing original research and innovation in the following topicss:
Ad hoc and mesh networks
Routing algorithms and protocols
Transport layer protocols for multi-hop networks
MAC protocols, scheduling, power and topology control, and resource
