A primary aim of wireless ad-hoc networks is to deliver data in areas where
there is no pre-defined infrastructure. In these networks, the users, but
also the network entities can be potentially mobile. Wireless ad-hoc
networks have recently witnessed their fastest growth period ever in
history. Real wireless ad-hoc networks are now implemented, deployed and
tested, and this trend is likely to increase in the future. However, as
such networks are increasingly complex, performance modeling and evaluation
play a crucial part in their design process to ensure their successful
deployment and exploitation in practice.

This special issue on Performance evaluation, Modeling and Analysis of
Wireless Ad-Hoc Networks era aims to open a new critical debate on the
evaluation of wireless ad-hoc networks. In particular, we seek original
theoretical and/or practical contributions, from researchers and
practitioners that identify and address issues in evaluating wireless
ad-hoc networks.
