Call for Papers

IEEE MASS 2019 is a premier annual forum for sharing original, novel ideas in mobile ad-hoc networks 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 and cyber-physical systems, 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 16th edition of the IEEE International Conference on Mobile Ad-Hoc and Smart Systems (MASS) will be held in beautiful Monterey, CA, USA, on November 4-7, 2019, 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.

Topics of interest

Original, unpublished contributions are solicited in all aspects of mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) and smart systems, from mobile networking/computing to cyber-physical systems to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 applications. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • 5G networks and technologies
  • AI/ML for smart wireless networks
  • AI and machine learning aided protocol design and resource allocation

Paper Submission Instructions

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers that are not currently under review elsewhere.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, 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.
