General information:

Welcome to the Workshop on Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks! Based on the success of the preceding WMAN workshops of 2005, 2004 and 2002, the workshop has also been organised for 2007. For the upcoming workshop, we are very happy to introduce WMAN 2007 as an event moved to an international scenery (taking place in Bern, Switzerland) and being hosted in the context of the 15th ITG/GI conference on communication in distributed systems (German: ITG/GI - Fachtagung "Kommunikation in Verteilten Systemen") - http://kivs07.unibe.ch/

Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks today are among the most active research topics in the area of mobile and wireless communication. Technical issues having sound solutions in the area of fixed networks might not be applicable to ad hoc networks. Thus, new solutions have to be found or existing ones have to be adapted to their use in ad-hoc networks. Although, the area of addressing and routing has been discussed for some time, several new solutions are being proposed. However, the issue of security in ad hoc networks is among the younger topics.

Overview of topics:

Workshop paper topics include, but are not limited to:

Addressees of the workshop:

Goal of the WMAN workshop is to enable an effective interchange of results and ideas among researchers, users, and product developers on an international level - under the umbrella of research topics on wireless mobile ad-hoc networks.

We encourage you to submit original papers describing research results or practical solutions, as well as ongoing work or challenging new research issues in the area of ad-hoc networks.
