Call for Papers

Scope

The annual International Conference on Ad Hoc Networks (ADHOCNETS) focuses on ad hoc networking technologies and their applications. The aim of ADHOCNETS 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. Following the success of ADHOCNETS’09-18, the 10th edition of the event, ADHOCNETS 2019 will be held in Queenstown, New Zealand, on Nov. 18-21, 2019, and is endorsed by the European Alliance for Innovation. The conference will consist of keynote speeches, invited talks, and technical sessions.
