> Overview & Scope   
> ********************
> 
> Water covers 71% of the earth's surface with oceans, rivers and lakes.
> Water systems are of vital importance to climate regulation, agriculture,
> nutrient production, oil retrieval and transportation, etc., yet they
> represent one of the least explored frontiers. As such, there is
> significant interest in real-time, in-situ monitoring of aquatic
> environments for scientific, environmental, commercial, safety and
> military applications.
> 
> Underwater networking has attracted strong attention in the recent a few
> years. Although there is a long history of underwater acoustic
> communication, many new applications requires networking of multiple
> nodes, either static or mobile, and potentially over multiple hops. The
> physical challenges of acoustic channel and the complexity of diverse
> aquatic environments require us to completely re-think network design for
> underwater environments. Some major challenges at the physical layer and
> higher layers include the severely limited range-dependent bandwidth and
> attenuation, extensive time-varying multi-path propagation, the low speed
> of sound in water that is 5 orders of magnitude less than that of radio
> waves in air. In addition, underwater nodes are neither inexpensive nor
> easy to deploy. These distinct features yield grand challenges to every
> layer of the protocol suite in underwater networks.
> 
> The goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers and
> practitioners in areas relevant to underwater networks. Thus, all layers
> of the protocol stack, from the physical layer to application, will be
> represented. Its objective is to serve as a forum for presenting state of
> the art research, exchanging ideas and experiences, and facilitating
> interaction and collaboration. The workshop will span one day, including
> presentations of technical papers, keynote speeches, and a poster/demo
> session. Submissions for technical papers should describe original
> research, not published or currently under review for other workshops,
> conferences, or journals.  
>  
> Topics include, but are not limited to:
> 
> - Network architecture design 
> - Efficient acoustic communications
> - Cooperative underwater communications
> - Medium access control
> - Routing and forwarding
> - Reliable data transfer
> - Security and robustness
> - In-network data storage
> - Resource management (energy, bandwidth) 
> - Localization and time synchronization
> - Data fusion, dissemination, tracking
> - Network modeling and simulations
> - Network planning and deployment
> - New applications utilizing underwater networks
> - Testbed and systems: real-world experience
>

> Submission Guidelines
> **************************
> 
> The workshop accepts both regular full papers and short papers. Short
> papers present new ideas or new visions that may influence the direction
> of future research, yet they may be less mature than full papers. While an
> exhaustive evaluation of the proposed ideas is not necessary, insight and
> in-depth understanding of the issues is expected. Short papers will be
> reviewed the same way as full papers by the technical program committee
> and will be published in the workshop proceedings.
> 
> All paper submissions will be handled electronically. Authors should
> prepare a PDF or PostScript version of their papers. The page limit for
> full papers is 8 pages, and that for short papers is 4 pages. Both types
> of papers should be submitted using the same submission procedure.
> However, the title of short papers must start with the word "Short
> Papers:", i.e., "Short Papers: Rest of the Title." All papers should use
> font size that is not smaller than 10 points, and must fit properly on US
> letter-sized paper (8.5x11 inches) with 1-inch margins. Detailed
> instructions on the paper submission procedure and format are available on
> the workshop website.
> 
> Submitted papers will be judged based on their quality and novelty through
> a rigorous peer-reviewing process. All accepted papers will appear in the
> workshop proceedings. Some papers that cannot be included in the main
> workshop program may be accepted as extended abstracts. If the authors
> agree, these papers will be included in the proceedings as 2-page extended
> abstracts and will be presented at the workshop in a poster session. The
> call for posters and demos will be announced separately.
