WUWNet'12 Call for Papers

May 15, 2012 - via WUWNet

WUWNet is the premier venue for researchers and practitioners in areas relevant to underwater networks and network-related signal processing, communications, systems, and applications. 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.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Underwater network and system architectures
  • Efficient underwater communications (including acoustic, optical, RF, and wired, etc.), with techniques from the physical layer to the application layer
  • Underwater acoustic modeling and signal processing
  • Cooperative underwater communications, including, PHY, MAC, routing, and data transfer, etc.
  • Services for underwater systems, such as localization, synchronization, navigation, security, etc.
  • Communication & coordination for underwater vehicles and sensor nodes, or human operator interaction
  • Coordinated energy harvesting systems and power systems for underwater networks and systems
  • Energy-efficient algorithms, and protocol design for underwater networks and systems
  • Operating system and middleware support for underwater networks and systems
  • Applications that broadly address underwater networks and systems, including coordinated underwater vehicles
  • Modeling, simulation, and testbeds for underwater systems and platforms
  • Experimental results from underwater field trials & tests
  • Application requirements for underwater networks and systems presented by end users

Submission Guidelines
Submissions for technical papers must describe original research, not published in other workshops, conferences, journals, or magazines. The conference accepts full, short papers and extended abstracts. It will also include a work-in-progress poster/demo session which allows a much later submission. Please see the conference website for definitive formatting and submission guidelines.
