                     1st Call for Papers

              5th IEEE International Workshop on
    Algorithms for Wireless, Mobile, Ad Hoc and Sensor Networks
                         (IEEE WMAN 05)

            April 4-8, 2005, Denver, Colorado, USA
                   (Omni Interlocken Resort)

           To be held in conjunction with IPDPS 2005

              Supported by the IEEE Computer Society

SCOPE:

The field of wireless and mobile computing is an important research 
challenging area, that emerges from the integration among personal 
computing distributed computing, cellular technology and the Web. This is 
possible due to the continuously increasing interaction between 
communication and computing, which is changing the information access from 
the current reactive ``anytime anywhere'' into the incoming proactive 
``all the time everywhere'' approach. Nowadays, there is a large variety 
of networks spanning from the well-known cellular networks to 
non-infrastructured wireless networks such as mobile ad hoc networks and 
sensor networks.

This scenario raises a number of interesting, and difficult, algorithmic 
issues in diverse areas such as location management, resource allocation, 
ubiquitous information, network connectivity, reliability and security, 
and energy consumption.

This workshop is intended to cover contributions in both the design and 
analysis of discrete algorithms and the system modelling in the context of 
mobile, wireless, ad-hoc, and sensor networks. In particular, it aims at 
bringing together the practitioners and theoreticians of the field. We are 
seeking for papers that are original, unpublished and not currently under 
review. The objective of this workshop is to bring together leading 
technologists and researchers in these ``critical areas'' of research in 
order to have a forum for discussing fundamental challenges, identifying 
future perspectives, and exchanging ideas about ongoing research.

Authors are solicited to submit original unpublished manuscripts for this 
workshop. Accepted papers will be published in the proceedings (by IEEE CS 
Press) of the IPDPS workshops.


TOPICS:

The scope of this workshop includes, but is not limited, to:

* frequency and channel assignment algorithms 
* cryptography and security 
* distributed algorithms 
* pricing modeling and solutions 
* algorithms for satellite communications 
* mechanisms design and cooperation enforcement 
* algorithms and modeling on satellite and radio networks 
* algorithms for resource management in mobile, wireless and ad-hoc networks 
* data management on mobile and wireless computing 
* algorithms for single-hop and multiple-hop packet radio networks 
* routing, and communication primitives in ad hoc and sensor networks 
* synchronization and scheduling issues in mobile and ad hoc networks 
* energy saving protocols for ad hoc and sensor networks 
* complexity analysis of algorithms for mobile environments 
* caching and prefetching for information access in wireless networks 
* algorithms and modeling for tracking and locating mobile users


IMPORTANT DATES:

Workshop Paper Due: November 20, 2004, 5pm EST 
Notification of Acceptance/Rejection: December 22, 2004 
Camera-Ready Paper Due: January 15, 2004


SUBMISSION GUIDELINES AND PUBLICATION:

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts reporting original unpublished 
research and recent developments in the topics related to the WMAN 
workshop. The length of the papers should be a maximum of 10 double-column 
single-spaced pages including figures and references on 8.5 by 11 inch 
paper using at least 10 point font (based upon IEEE Proceedings Style). 
Please remember that the final versions will be restricted to 8 pages.

We strongly encourage authors to submit papers electronically in PDF 
format via EDAS. More information on how to submit your paper 
electronically, will be provided later. Under certain circumstances, you 
may submit paper in PDF format as an e-mail attachment to nikole@cti.gr

Note that once the paper gets accepted, it is MANDATORY that at least one 
author should attend the workshop and present the paper.

The accepted papers will be published in the same printed abstract volume 
and CD-ROM proceedings as other workshops of the IPDPS 2005 conference by 
the IEEE Computer Society Press and IEEE online library.
