The 17th International Conference on Ad Hoc Networks and Wireless (AdHoc-Now) 2018 will take place at Saint Malo, Bretagne, 5–7 September, 2018 (http://conferences.imt-atlantique.fr/adhocnow2018/).
Since its creation in 2002, the International Conference on Ad Hoc Networks and Wireless (AdHoc-Now) has become a well‐established and well-known event dedicated to wireless and mobile mesh computing. It serves as a forum for interesting discussions on ongoing research and new contributions. The conference addresses both experimental and theoretical research in the areas of ad hoc networks, sensor networks, mesh networks and vehicular networks. It focuses on all issues from link layer up to the application layer. We seek original contributions as work in progress, experimental and theoretical research in wireless sensors, ad-hoc, mobile and wireless networks.
Topics will include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Internet of Things (IoT)
- Access Control
- Determinist communication
- Long range IoT (LoRa, Sigfox, NB-IoT)
- Industry 4.0 and smart factory
- IoT Management Patterns
- Smart cities
- Hybrid networks with heterogeneous network interfaces
- IEEE 802.15.4 TSCH and IPv6 integration
- Ad Hoc Networks of Autonomous Intelligent Systems
- Algorithmic Issues
- Analytic Methods and Performance Evaluation
- Ad Hoc Network Applications and Architectures
- Delay-Tolerant Networking
- Distributed Algorithms for Ad Hoc Networks
- Energy Efficiency
- Geometric Graphs
- Location Discovery and Management
- Mobility Handling and Utilization
- Wireless Mesh Networks
- Big Data Inspired Data Sensing
- Mobile Ad Hoc Computing Platforms
- Edge/fog computing
- Systems and Testbeds
- Mobile Social Networking
- Quality-of-Service for mesh networks
- Routing Protocols (Unicast, Multicast, etc.)
- Secure Services and Protocols
- Sensor Networks
- Service Discovery
- Timing Synchronization
- Vehicular Networks
- Wireless Internet
- Processing and Networking Technologies Complexity and Computational Issues
- Prototype systems and real-world deployment experiences

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
