 Call for Papers


As more and more users become increasingly dependent on wireless and mobile communications, it is necessary to ensure reliable and dependable connectivity and support for “on-demand” services through new-generation wireless technologies such as mesh networks, WiMax, ad hoc networks, sensor networks, vehicular networks, and their integration with the Internet, the cloud, and with legacy wireless technologies such as cellular and WiFi.

There are major challenges to be addressed, including integration of infrastructure-based and ad hoc networks, development of robust and lightweight algorithms for self-organization, reconfiguration at all layers of the protocol stack, on-demand service models and their provision in a highly-volatile interconnected environment, and smooth interoperability of architectures.

WONS, now in its tenth edition, has established itself as a high-quality forum to address these challenges in the context of a conference that is rich in interactions and based on innovative contributions by experts in the field.

This announcement solicits original submissions of high-quality research papers on “wireless on-demand networks” that provide novel insights on protocol and network design, modeling, performance evaluation, profitability models, energy efficiency, QoS models and mechanisms, practical implementations, service level aspects, and Internet integration of wireless networks.

Topics related to all kinds of wireless on-demand networks comprise, but are not limited to:

  • New architectures for on-demand wireless systems
  • Intra-body and biomedical on-demand systems
  • Performance evaluation through simulations and experiments
  • Modeling, optimization, and game theoretic aspects
  • Integration and co-existence of heterogeneous technologies
  • Social and economic aspects
  • Pervasive and ubiquitous computing
  • Localization and mobility management
  • Security, privacy, and trust
  • Novel applications and services
  • Energy-efficient protocols and power management
  • Cross-layer design
  • Implementations and testbeds
  • Opportunistic, delay-tolerant, and dissemination-based protocols
  • Mobile peer-to-peer systems
  • Middleware aspects
  • Self-X and network management
  • Cognitive radio networks
  • Green wireless networks





Submission Requirements


Manuscript submissions

Submitted papers must not have been published elsewhere and must not be under current review by another conference or journal. Authors are invited to submit double-column full (up to 8 pages) and short papers (up to 4 pages) as a PDF file, with a font size no smaller than 10pt. Short papers should present future research directions and ongoing work infused with visionary, innovative ideas. Accepted short papers and posters will be included in the conference proceedings. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper at the conference.

Papers (including those for special sessions) must be submitted through the EDAS system. The following link will bring you directly to EDAS registration page for WONS 13. Please create an EDAS login before submitting your paper. We will be accepting papers beginning October 1, 2012.

The IEEE/IFIP WONS 2013′s Best Paper Award will recognize the authors of superior quality papers submitted to the 2013 conference. The Best Paper Award authors will be recognized at the conference.


IEEE and IEEE Communications Society Policies

Papers are reviewed on the basis that they do not contain plagiarized material and have not been submitted to any other conference at the same time (double submission). These matters are taken very seriously and the IEEE Communications society will take action against any author who has engaged in either practice.

PLEASE NOTE: To be published in the IEEE WONS 2013 Conference Proceedings and IEEE Xplore®, at least one author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference and must present the paper at the conference. Non-refundable registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the final IEEE formatted, publication-ready version of the paper. For authors with multiple accepted papers, an additional fee is required for each additional paper. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE WONS 2013 Conference Proceedings and in IEEE Xplore®.

Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper at the conference. Conference proceedings will be included in the IEEE Xplore library.
