    - The event is endorsed by the European Alliance for Innovation, a leading community-based organization devoted to the advancement of innovation in the field of ICT.
    - All accepted papers will be published by Springer and made available through SpringerLink Digital Library, one of the world's largest scientific libraries.
    - Proceedings will be submitted for indexing by Google Scholar, ISI, EI Compendex, Scopus and many more.
    - Selected papers may be invited to publish in the EAI Endorsed Transactions on Mobile Communications and Applications.



    Ad hoc networks, which cover a variety of network paradigms for specific purposes, such as mobile ad hoc networks, wireless sensor networks, vehicular networks, underwater networks, airborne networks, underground networks, personal area networks, and
    home networks, promise a broad range of applications in civilian, commercial, and military areas. The aim of the annual International Conference on Ad Hoc Networks (AdHocNets) is to provide a forum that brings together researchers from academia,
    government laboratories, as well as practitioners from industry to meet and exchange ideas and recent research work on all aspects of ad hoc networks. Held annually since 2009, the eighth edition of the event, AdHocNets 2016, will be held in Ottawa,
    Canada, in September 2016. The conference will consist of keynote talks, technical sessions, and associated workshops. The technical sessions will present original and fundamental research advances while the workshops will focus on development and
    application issues in this hot field. The workshops will be dedicated to specific and more focused themes, especially to the recent developments and emerging applications in ad hoc networking.


    The conference solicits original technical papers that were not previously published and are not currently under review for publication elsewhere. Papers should address technical challenges in any type of ad hoc network, such as, but not limited to,
    Mobile Ad Hoc Networks, Sensor Networks, Vehicular Networks, Personal Area Networks, Body Area Networks, Smart Grid Networks, Nanonetworks, or Home Networks. Possible topics of interest include:
    - Network architectural and protocol design
    - Spectrum related issues in ad hoc networks
    - Metrics for ad hoc networks
    - Cognitive ad hoc networks
    - Cross-layer design
    - MAC, routing, and transport protocols
    - Resource allocation and management
    - Network control and management
    - Power control and management
    - Topology control and management
    - Quality of service provisioning
    - Service discovery
    - Ranging and node localization
    - Time synchronization
    - Data fusion
    - Network scalability and capacity
    - Reliability and fault tolerance
    - Security and privacy
    - Middleware for ad hoc networks
    - Applications of ad hoc networks
    - Performance modeling and analysis
    - Tools to design, implement, and evaluate ad hoc network protocols
    - Wireless Software-Defined Networking
    - Network Function Virtualization for ad hoc networks


    Accepted papers will be published in the AdHocNets 2016 Conference Proceedings and by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes of the Institute for Computer Sciences, Social-Informatics and Tele-communications Engineering (LNICST) series. Extended versions
    of selected best papers from the conference will be invited to be submitted for publication (fast review track) in the ICST Transactions on Mobile Communications and Applications. The proceedings will be available both as paper-based copies and via
    Springerlink, Springer's digital library. In addition, the content of the proceedings will be submitted for inclusion in leading indexing services, including DBLP, Google Scholar, ISI Proceedings, EI, CrossRef and Zentralblatt Math, as well as ICST's own
    EU Digital Library (EUDL). Selected papers may be invited to publish in the EAI Endorsed Transactions on Mobile Communications and Applications.
