The diffusion of lightweight,  powerful  portable devices,  also enriched with a
variety of sensing capabilities,  is enabling new ways for users' communication,
and laying the foundation for realizing  the ubiquitous networking idea.  Acting
either  as  the  main communication mode  or as complement  to  existing  mobile
network infrastructures, opportunistic networking  can leverage  the mobility of
end  users  and  enhance their  communication  capabilities.   The opportunistic
exploitation of extemporary  contacts  among  the users of the network paves the
way to a  number of applications but also poses  new and challenging problems to
the  networking research community.   The AOC 2012 workshop aims at serving as a
meeting point  for people  working in the area and a forum for exchanging ideas,
discussing solutions,  and sharing experiences among researchers, professionals,
and  application  developers,  both  from industry  and academia.  As  with  the
previous  five editions  of the AOC workshop series,  the scope  of  this year's
workshop  will remain  on general issues related to opportunistic networking and
computing.  Yet,  AOC 2012  will have  a primary interest in  new directions  of
opportunistic communications,  such as service composition techniques, scenarios
of co-existence  with infrastructure networks,  and  insights to their operation
coming from other disciplines such as game theory  and cognitive psychology. The
workshop  will solicit  original papers  addressing  theoretical  and  practical
aspects of autonomic and opportunistic communications but also papers describing
prototype implementations and deployments.

Topics of interest for AOC 2012 include, but are not limited to:

*   Routing, transport, and reliability issues
*   Techniques for data dissemination and replication
*   Applications and middleware support, mobile social networking applications
*   Mobility models and statistical analysis of mobility traces
*   Context and social awareness mechanisms and algorithms
*   Co-existence of opportunistic networks with infrastructure mobile wireless
*   Service composition in autonomic and opportunistic networks
*   Cognition-driven information processing and decision making
*   Performance modelling, scaling laws, and fundamental limits for autonomic
    and opportunistic communications
*   Game-theoretic insights to the operation of autonomic and opportunistic
*   Participatory and urban sensing in autonomic and opportunistic networks
*   Trust, security, and reputation
*   Autonomic and opportunistic communication testbeds and prototypes,
    measurement data from real experiments 
*   Socio-economic models for  autonomic and opportunistic communications


Papers should neither have been published elsewhere  nor being currently under
review  by another conference or journal.  Manuscripts are limited to 6 pages,
single  spacing,  double  column,  and  must  strictly  adhere to the template
format.  Guidelines  on  paper  submission  and  formatting  are available  at

Accepted papers will appear in the symposium proceedings published by IEEE. At
least  one author of  each accepted paper  is required to register and present
his/her  work at  the workshop.  There  will be no  separate  registration for
workshop, but one single registration will cover both conference and workshops

Extended versions  of workshop selected papers will be considered for possible
fast  track publication  on  the  Computer Communications  Journal (Elsevier).

Full papers due:   February 17, 2012
Notification:          April 4, 2012
Workshop:              June 25, 2012
