Call for Workshop Proposals

The 16th IEEE International Conference on Mobile Ad-Hoc and Smart Systems (IEEE MASS 2019) is the meeting point for leading researchers in the thriving area of wireless ad hoc communications, sensor, and actuator networks. Topics of IEEE MASS cover a large range of scientific areas, spanning topics from computer science, physics, embedded systems, electrical engineering, control theory, as well as application areas such as disaster recovery and rescue operations, environmental monitoring, smart cities, smart grids, health applications, and many more.

Continuing this tradition, the 16th IEEE International Conference on Mobile Ad-Hoc and Smart Systems (MASS) will be held in Monterey, CA, USA, on Nov. 4-7, 2019. Since its very beginning in 2004, MASS also offers a range of associated workshops, which cover special topics and applications in wireless ad hoc and sensor networks. During the last years, up to ten workshops have been held each year in conjunction with MASS, with some of the workshops already having seen their seventh edition. Each workshop will provide an arena for presentations and discussions about a special topic of relevance to MASS. IEEE MASS 2019 now invites the submission of workshop proposals.
