Wireless ad hoc communication has applications in a variety of environments, such as conferences, hospitals, battlefields,
and disaster-recovery/rescue operations, and is also being actively investigated as an alternative paradigm for Internet
connectivity in both urban and rural areas. Wireless sensor and actuator networks are also being deployed for enhancing industrial
control processes and supply-chains, and for various forms of environmental monitoring. IEEE MASS 2016 aims at addressing advances
in research on multihop ad hoc and sensor networks, covering topics ranging from technology issues to applications and test-bed development.
