Welcome!

The Second International Workshop on Specialized Ad Hoc Networks and Systems (SAHNS 2009) will be held in conjunction with ICDCS 2009, which is a flagship conference of the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Distributed Processing.

 

SAHNS provides a forum for engineers and scientists in academia, industry and government to present their latest research findings in specialized ad-hoc networks and systems.

 

Scope Summary

Ad hoc networks are today among the most active research topics in the area of mobile and wireless communication. Yet, many technical issues do not have sound general solutions applicable to all ad hoc networks. For many others, the general solutions for ad hoc networks might be too inefficient for specific application classes or individual applications.

 

As an alternative to one-size-fits-all general solutions in the area of ad hoc networking and systems, we want to stimulate the application-oriented divide-and-conquer approach to ad hoc network and system research. The goal is to provide sound and efficient specialized ad hoc networks and systems (SAHNS), suitable for building solutions specific for well-defined classes of applications or even individual applications.

 

We want to consider both specialized ad hoc networks and specialized ad hoc systems. The latter can be built on top of specialized ad hoc networks. Alternatively, they can be constructed independently of specialized ad hoc networks, e.g., on top of general-purpose ad hoc networks.

 

It should be emphasized that SAHNS is interested only in solutions specific to specialized ad hoc networks and systems. The Workshop is not interested in broad general-purpose solutions for all ad hoc networks and systems, or in generic solutions for extremely broad subclasses of ad hoc networks and systems. For example, the Workshop is not interested in general-purpose solutions for all sensornets or all P2P systems but is instead interested in specialized solutions for their application-oriented subclasses.

 

The areas of interest for Specialized Ad Hoc Networks and Systems (SAHNS) include, but are not limited to, the following:

         Design issues for SAHNS

         Development issues for SAHNS

         Operation and management issues for SAHNS

         Application issues for SAHNS

For more details of the scope of the SAHNS Workshop please see Call for Papers.
