5th International Conference on Ad Hoc Networks
Ad hoc networks, which cover a variety of network paradigms for specific purposes, such as mobile ad hoc networks, sensor networks, vehicular networks, underwater networks, underground networks, personal area networks, and home networks, promise a broad range of applications in civilian, commercial, and military areas. The aim of the annual International Conference on Ad Hoc Networks (AdHocNets) is to provide a forum that brings together researchers from academia as well as practitioners from industry to meet and exchange ideas and recent research work on all aspects of ad hoc networks. Following the success of AdHocNets’09, AdHocNets’10, AdHocNets’11, and AdHocNets’12, the fifth edition of the event, AdHocNets’13, will be held in the famous city of Barcelona, Spain, on Oct. 16-18, 2013. The conference will consist of keynote talks, technical sessions, and associated workshops. The technical sessions will present original and fundamental research advances while the workshops will focus on development and application issues in this hot field.
