Aims and Scope
Ad Hoc & Sensor Wireless Networks seeks to provide an opportunity for researchers from computer science, engineering and mathematical backgrounds to disseminate and exchange knowledge in the rapidly emerging field of ad hoc and sensor wireless networks. It will comprehensively cover physical, data-link, network and transport layers, as well as application, security, simulation and power management issues in sensor, local area, satellite, vehicular, personal, and mobile ad hoc networks.

The main focus of the journal is to publish original contributions, including regular papers, short papers, research notes and communications, review and survey papers. In order to provide timely dissemination of ideas whose evaluation may require significant time and impose publication delays, one of the unique features of this journal is to allow authors the publication of promising concepts and algorithms with either partial or without prior experimental evaluation.

Possible topics of interests related to ad hoc & sensor wireless networks include, but are not limited to:

  • integration with wired networks, wireless Internet
  • standardization efforts
  • database systems, operating systems
  • time synchronization and calibration
  • position determination, service and location discovery
  • sensor area coverage, data-centric operations
  • addressing and location management
  • data communication, routing and broadcasting protocols
  • traffic engineering and multimedia, Quality of Service (QoS)
  • resource management and scheduling
  • mobility management, reliability
  • algorithmic solutions and complexity
  • topology control, scalability
  • mobile agents for ad hoc networking
  • performance evaluation, modeling and simulation
  • machine learning and artificial intelligence
  • software-defined networking and virtualization
  • cellular technologies (e.g., 5G and future generations)
  • Internet o things
  • blockchain and distributed ledger technologies

Papers not related to ad hoc wireless networks or wireless sensor networks will be rejected for being out of scope.

The editors of Ad Hoc & Sensor Wireless Networks invite your contributions.
