Call for papers

ACM MobiOpp 2012
Third International Workshop on
Mobile Opportunistic Networks

Sponsored by ACM Sigmobile
Technically co-sponsored by the IFIP TC6 WG 6.3

March 15-16, 2012
ETH Zurich, Switzerland

Opportunistic Networking is one of the emerging communication paradigms in wireless mobile communications. Opportunistic networks are commonly defined as a type of networks where communication is challenged by sporadic and intermittent contacts as well as frequent disconnections and reconnections, and where the assumption of the existence of an end-to-end path between the source and the destination is relinquished. The aim of MobiOpp 2012 is to provide a high profile, leading edge forum for researchers and engineers to present their latest research in the field of mobile opportunistic networking. In particular, MobiOpp 2012 strongly encourages submissions of experimental work.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Opportunistic and Delay-tolerant Networks
  • Mobile Urban Sensing and Crowdsensing
  • Novel Architectures, Middleware, Prototypes and Testbeds
  • Routing, Dissemination and Caching in Opportunistic Networks
  • Analysis of Opportunistic Protocols
  • Security, Trust, Privacy and Cooperation in Opportunistic Networks
  • Social-aware Opportunistic Networking
  • Anti-censorship/surveillance opportunistic communications
  • Opportunistic Applications (e.g., opportunistic social networking, disaster and emergency situations, healthcare, communication in remote regions)
  • Mobility models for opportunistic networks

Submitted papers should be novel and should not be currently under review, whether in shorter, longer, or the same form. It is an ACM policy (http://www.acm.org/pubs/rights.html) not to allow double submissions, where the same paper is submitted to more than one conference/journal concurrently. Any double submissions detected will be immediately rejected from all conferences/journals involved.
