Med-Hoc-Net 2015

The 14th IFIP Annual Mediterranean Ad Hoc Networking Workshop

Technically Co-sponsored by IEEE Communications Society and IFIP. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.

Extended versions of selected papers will be reviewed for possible publication in a special issue of Wiley Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing journal (Impact Factor: 1.291).


June 17-18, 2015 - Vilamoura, Algarve, Portugal

The unstoppable evolution of network technologies is paving the way to new network and users scenarios, driving creative services and building new business models. Wide and easy connectivity, network programmability, fast speed connections and decoupled data and management repositories, as well as smart devices are all of them facilitating innovation in the networking and services arena.

MED-HOC-NET 2015 focuses on fundamental network concepts, but also on topics related to those network paradigms attracting large attention by the scientific and industrial communities. Hence, the conference includes topics such as smart cities, smart transportation, IoT, data-centric operations, autonomous organisation, seamless connectivity and cross-layer design and application scenarios (road safety, disaster recovery, smart cities, energy efficient buildings, sensors, actuators, wearables, etc.). Moreover, novel and exciting challenges are introduced by commercial systems adopting the ad hoc paradigm, from mesh, sensor and vehicular networks, and by associated delay-tolerant and opportunistic scenarios. Furthermore, today's market explosion of smart phones is creating new opportunities for wireless ad hoc social networks, the study of which requires the combination of opportunistic ad hoc networking aspects with the understanding of social behavior and mobility patterns.

Following recent successful conferences in Sicily (2006), Corfu (2007), Palma de Mallorca (2008), Haifa (2009), Juan-les-pins (2010), Favignana Island (2011), Cyprus (2012), Corsica (2013) and Slovenia, Med-Hoc-Net 2015 will take place in Algarve, Portugal.

Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.


Papers are solicited in a variety of topics related to ad hoc, wireless, sensor, mesh, delay-tolerant, content-centric and opportunistic networks, including but not limited to:
