The Second International Workshop on Ad Hoc Networks and
Interoperability Issues (MANETII'05), 27-30 June 2005,
Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

Held in conjunction with the International Conference on
Wireless Networks (ICWN'05).

Workshop Website:


A mobile ad hoc network is a multihop wireless network that can be formed
without the need for any pre-existing infrastructure. Unlike other wireless
networking technologies, which rely mainly on existing communication
infrastructure and favor urban areas, ad hoc networks can be deployed to
remote geographical locations with minimum setup and administration costs.
Moreover, the integration of ad hoc networks with the Internet and wireless
infrastructure networks increases the network capacity, coverage area and
application domain. Although ad hoc networks provide many opportunities
and new applications areas by realizing ubiquitous communication, they
introduce new and fundamental challenges on the design of communication
and networking protocols. This is due to the lack of central administration,
limited network resources and dynamic network topology.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together practitioners and researchers
from both academia and industry in order to have a forum for discussion and
technical presentations on the latest research and future research opportunities.
We are seeking original research papers describing algorithmic solutions,
experimental results and application scenarios for mobile ad hoc networks
and integrated ad hoc and infrastructure networks.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Distributed algorithms
Quality of Services (QoS)
Security issues
Denial of Services (DoS)
Cross layer protocol design
Mobility management
Data management
Ad hoc sensor networks
Simulation and implementation test-beds
MAC protocols
Fault tolerance and load balancing
Interoperability of ad hoc and wired/wireless networks
Performance evaluation
Service and resource discovery
Middleware for ad hoc networks
Mobility models
Resource management
Heterogeneous wireless networks
Hybrid routing in ad hoc networks

Authors are requested to submit draft papers not exceeding 5 pages (single-spaced
font size of 10 or 11) in PDF format to Dr. Mieso Denko (
The length of the cameral-ready papers will be limited to 7 IEEE style pages.
If you have any questions regarding the workshop or submission process,
please contact the Workshop Chair at the address given below.

Paper Submission Deadline: 5 March 2005
Notification of Acceptance:24 March 2005
Camera Ready Submission: 20 April 2005

All accepted papers would be published in the proceedings of the International
Conference on Wireless Networks (ICWN'05). After the conference,
selected papers will be considered for journal publication. In 2004, a number of
authors from the MANETII workshop submitted extended versions of their paper to
a Special Issue on "Wireless Networks and Pervasive Computing" for the Journal
of Pervasive Computing and Communications (JPCC) (
