*The 17th IEEE International Conference on Mobile Ad-Hoc and Smart Systems
(MASS 2020)*

*Delhi NCR, India. October 1-4, 2020*

* Call for Papers *

IEEE MASS 2020 is a premier annual forum for sharing original, novel ideas
in mobile ad-hoc networks (MANETs) and smart systems, defined broadly. As
wireless ad-hoc networks continue to evolve and specialize into a number of
application scenarios and environments, and sensor-based systems and
technologies increasingly permeate our everyday life and become the inner
fabric of the Internet of Things (IoT) and cyber-physical systems (CPS),
the unfolding of smart environments such as smart cities, smart farming,
smart healthcare, and smart manufacturing, to name a few, demand integrated
solutions that can make intelligent use of both cloud and edge systems,
while applying machine learning and artificial intelligence tools to handle
their growing complexity and to leverage the vast amount of available data.

Sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society, the 17th edition of the IEEE
International Conference on Mobile Ad-Hoc and Smart Systems (MASS) will be
held in Greater Noida Extension Center (GNEC), Indian Institute of
Technology Roorkee, Delhi NCR, India during October 1-4, 2020, and it aims
at bringing together researchers, developers, and practitioners to address
recent advances in mobile ad-hoc and smart systems, covering algorithms,
theory, protocols, systems & applications, experimental evaluations and
testbeds, security/privacy, as well as AI/ML-based smart design

MASS 2020 conference aims to investigate the opportunities and requirements
for Mobile Ad-Hoc and Smart Systems (MASS) dominance. In addition, it seeks
for novel contributions that help mitigating mobile ad-hoc and mart systems
Computing challenges. That is, the objective of MASS 2020 is to provide a
forum for scientists, engineers, and researchers to discuss and exchange
new ideas, novel results and experience on all aspects of Mobile Ad-Hoc and
Smart Systems Computing (MASS). MASS 2020 is Technically Co-Sponsored by
IEEE Computer Society. Researchers are encouraged to submit Original,
unpublished contributions are solicited in all aspects of mobile ad hoc
networks (MANETs) and smart systems, from mobile networking/computing to
cyber-physical systems to Internet of Things, from theory to systems and

*Submissions Guidelines and Proceedings: *

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers that
are not currently under review elsewhere. All submissions should be written
in English with a maximum length of 9 single-spaced, double-column pages
using 10pt fonts on 8.5 x 11 inch paper, including all figures, tables, and
references, in PDF format. Authors must use the Manuscript Templates for
IEEE Conference Proceedings. Accepted papers will appear in the conference
proceedings published by IEEE and will be presented at the conference.
Based on TPC reviews and discussions, some papers may be accepted as 5-page
short papers, or 2-page posters in addition to the regular 9 page papers.
For all papers, IEEE reserves the right to exclude the paper from
distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the
paper is not presented at the conference. Note that the conference will
also include a poster and demo session.
