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 nodes (mobile or static) are connected using wireless links and cooperate to self-organize into a network without the requirement for any infrastructures such as access points or base stations. In recent years, ad hoc networks have been attracting an 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 ad hoc networks due to node mobility has introduced many formidable challenges such as scalability, quality of service, reliability and security, and energy constrained operations for the networks. Ad hoc networking covers a variety of network paradigms including mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs), sensor networks, vehicular networks, underwater networks, airborne networks, underground networks, personal area networks, device-to-device (D2D) communications in 5G cellular networks, and home networks etc. It promises a wide range of applications in civilian, commercial, and military areas.

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. This year’s ADHOCNETS conference will be held in Cairns, Australia, on September 20 – 23, 2018. The conference will consist of keynote speeches, technical sessions, and associated workshops. A workshop will be a half or one day event that focuses more on recent development and emerging applications in the area of ad hoc networking.


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, including but not limited to Mobile Ad Hoc Networks, Sensor Networks, Vehicular Networks, Personal Area Networks, Body Area Networks, Smart Grid Networks, Nanonetworks, or Home Networks. Possible topics of interest include:

    Network architectural and protocol design
    Cross-layer design
    Non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA)
    MAC, routing, and transport protocols
    Resource allocation and management
    Network control and management
    Power control and management
    Topology control and management
    Quality of service provisioning
    Service discovery
    Ranging and node localization
    Time synchronization
    Data fusion
    Network scalability and capacity
    Reliability and fault tolerance
    Security and privacy
    Middleware for ad hoc networks
    Wireless software-defined networking
    Network function virtualization for ad hoc networks
    Edge/fog/cloud computing for ad hoc networks
    Machine learning (or AI) for ad hoc networks
    Low-power wide-area IoT networking
    Massive machine connections for IoT
    Performance modeling and analysis
    Tools to design, implement, and evaluate ad hoc network protocols
    Applications of ad hoc networks


All registered papers will be published by Springer and made available through SpringerLink Digital Library.

ADHOCNETS proceedings are indexed in leading indexing services, including Ei Compendex, ISI Web of Science, Scopus, CrossRef, Google Scholar, DBLP, as well as EAI’s own EU Digital Library (EUDL).
