Description:
With the proliferation of smart handheld devices, mobile data is projected to grow drastically in the next few years. Coupled with emerging machine-to-machine communications, there is a compelling need to significantly improve the current network capacity and architecture. To meet this challenge, traditional cellular networks must be more adaptive and intelligent, e.g., adaptive to different types of spectrum (white space or dedicated) and traffic patterns. They must also interconnect with other coexisting wireless networks such as Wi-Fi, mobile ad hoc networks, wireless mesh network, femtocells and small cells, etc., to support a wide range of applications. Motivated further by the proliferation of Internet of Things and different types of communications (including M2M and D2D) ad hoc networking is still envisioned as a promising alternative communication and networking paradigm, for either replacing or complementing infrastructure-based approaches. Moreover, the wide use of various sensor devices and the need for their interconnection and communication feed the necessity for designing ad hoc networking solutions. This is further intensified by the emerging and disruptive innovations in the areas of Sensor/Embedded Networks and Pervasive Computing. Accordingly, this track also seeks novel, innovative and exciting submissions broadly related to the sensor and embedded systems, sensor networks, mobile sensing, pervasive and ubiquitous computing.
