                           FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS
                   >> Deadline extension: November 15 <<

                       IEEE/IFIP WONS 2019 - The 15th
     Wireless On-demand Network systems and Services Conference (WONS)
Wengen, Switzerland
22-24 January, 2019

Wireless on-demand network systems and services have become pivotal in 
shaping our future networked world. Starting as a niche application over 
Wi-Fi, they can now be found in mainstream technologies like Bluetooth 
LE, LTE Direct and Wireless LANs, and have become the cornerstone of 
upcoming networking paradigms including mesh and sensor networks, the 
Internet of Things, cloud networks, vehicular networks, disruption 
tolerant and opportunistic networks, underwater and intra-body networks.
The challenges of this exciting research field are numerous. Examples 
include how to make smart use of these novel technologies when multiple 
technologies or a mix of permanent services and on-demand networking 
opportunities are available to a network node, how to provide robust 
services in highly dynamic environments, how to efficiently employ and 
operate heavily resource-constrained devices, and how to develop robust 
and lightweight algorithms for self-organization and adaptation. 
Finally, there are many application-specific challenges.

WONS, now in its fifteenth edition, is a high quality forum to address 
these challenges. WONS aims to provide a global platform for rich 
interactions between experts in their fields, discussing innovative 
contributions in a stimulating environment.

This announcement solicits original contributions of high-quality 
research providing novel insights on all aspects of wireless on-demand 
networks and systems; from protocol and network design, modelling, 
performance evaluation, energy efficiency, QoS models and mechanisms, 
practical implementations, service level aspects, application use-cases, 
to the integration of multiple wireless network technologies.

Topics of interest comprise, but are not limited to:
* Cognitive radio networks
* Cross-layer design
* Energy-efficient protocols and power management
* Heterogeneous wireless networks
* Implementations and testbeds
* Integration and co-existence of heterogeneous technologies
* Intra-body and biomedical on-demand systems
* Green wireless networks
* Localization and mobility management
* MAC and advanced PHY technologies
* Middleware aspects
* Mobile peer-to-peer systems
* Mobile computing and services
* Modelling and optimization
* Network management
* New architectures for on-demand wireless systems
* Novel applications and services
* Opportunistic, delay-tolerant, and dissemination-based protocols
* Performance evaluation through simulations and experiments
* Pervasive and ubiquitous computing
* Security, privacy, and trust
* Social and economic aspects
* Underwater on-demand networked systems
* Architectures and protocols for the Internet of Things

Extended versions of selected top papers will be considered for 
publication on a fast track on special issues in Elsevier Computer 
Communications (COMCOM) journal.

Authors are invited to submit double-column long papers (up to 8 pages) 
and short papers (up to 4 pages) as a PDF file in IEEE format with a 
font size no smaller than 10pt. All paper submissions must be written in 
English. The mandatory IEEE template in Microsoft Word and LaTeX format 
can be found at the IEEE templates page. All submitted manuscripts must 
be at least 3 pages in length. Short papers should present future 
research directions and ongoing work with visionary, innovative ideas; 
accepted short papers will populate poster sessions at the conference 
and will be included in the conference proceedings. Submitted papers 
must not have been published elsewhere and must not be currently under 
review by another conference or journal. Submission implies the 
willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the 
paper. All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 
independent expert in the field following a single blind process. 
Accepted and presented papers will appear in the conference proceedings 
published in the IFIP Open Access Digital Library and will also be 
submitted to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library as well as other 
Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.
