Scope:

The 10th IEEE International Conference on Mobile Ad hoc and Sensor Systems (IEEE MASS 2013) will be held in HangZhou, Zhejiang Province, China, during October 14-16, 2013. Wireless ad hoc communication and mobile networking/computing have applications in a variety of environments, such as conferences, hospitals, battlefields, and disaster-recovery/rescue operations, and are also being actively investigated as an alternative paradigm for Internet connectivity in both urban and rural areas. Wireless sensor and actuator networks are being deployed for enhancing industrial control processes and supply-chains, and for various forms of environmental monitoring. IEEE MASS 2013, sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society, aims at addressing advances in research on multi-hop wireless ad hoc and sensor networks, covering topics ranging from technology issues to applications and test-bed development.

Topics of Interest:

Original, unpublished contributions are solicited in all aspects of mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs), wireless sensor networks (WSNs) (including cyber-physical systems, Internet of Things), and mobile networking/computing, including theory, systems and applications. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Algorithmic aspects of MANETs and WSNs
  • Application Layer Protocols
  • Architectures of wired/wireless networks

  • Paper Submission and Review:

    Authors are invited to submit technical papers presenting original, unpublished research, not currently under review elsewhere. All submissions should be written in English with a maximum length of 9 single-spaced, double-column pages using 10pt size fonts on 8.5 x 11 inch pages, with side-margin at least 1 inch, including all figures, tables, and references. All paper submission will be electronic, in PDF format, through EDAS. Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings published by IEEE and will be presented at the conference. Based on reviews and TPC discussions, the TPC may choose to accept some papers as short papers (5 pages). For all papers, IEEE reserves the right to exclude the paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference.

    Important Dates:

  • Paper registration deadline (extended): Monday, April 15, 2013
  • Full paper submission deadline (extended): Monday, April 22, 2013
  • Paper acceptance notification: Monday, July 15, 2013
  • Paper camera-ready deadline: Monday, August 5, 2013
  • Posters and Demos:

    The conference will also include a poster and demo session. Refer to the separate, Call for Posters, and Call for Demos for details, including submission instructions.
