                           Call for Papers (third round)


2009 International Workshop on Mobile, Multimedia, Ad Hoc & Sensor

                            (MMASN 2009)



                         In conjunction with 

  The 8th International Conference on Pervasive Intelligence and

                             (PICOM 2009)






Ad Hoc & Sensor Networks have received tremendous attentions from both

community and industry field for many years, since these networks are
the key 

underlying infrastructure for realizing next generation networking and

e.g., ubiquitous computing, 4 G all IP networks. Along with the fast

on the hardware and embedded systems, Ad Hoc & Sensor Networks are

developed towards a large number of mobile & multimedia applications,
e.g., video

surveillance, traffic enforcement and control systems, advanced health

delivery, structural health monitoring, and industrial process control.

eventually realizing these mobility & multimedia technologies combined

a lot of efforts are still needed from both academic community and
industry field, 

since the requirements on supporting both mobility and multimedia
streaming in 

Wireless Ad Hoc & Sensor Networks positioned many challenging issues,
e.g., mobile 

network self-organization, limited resource intelligent allocation,

optimization, and intelligent content-aware transmission.


In this workshop, we solicit research papers on all aspects of mobile,

Ad Hoc & Sensor Networks. Especially, we are interested in the research

focusing on the following four key aspects: 1) Congestion control
problem: when 

multiple multimedia source nodes are deployed in wireless multimedia
sensor networks, 

and they try to send out the streaming data to a single base station at
the same time, 

a well designed congestion control scheme is essentially necessary; 2)

support problem: when both multimedia source nodes and sink node can be
mobile, it is 

easy to see that there is an opportunity to apply the game theory to
further solve 

some more complicated optimization problems; 3) Duty-cycle support
problem: when 

sensor nodes in the wireless multimedia sensor networks are random
duty-cycled based, 

the network topology and connectivity of sensor networks can change from
time to time. 

It is important to further investigate a cross layer optimized sensor
node sleeping 

scheduling scheme to guarantee the network connectivity for packet
delivery; 4) Target

tracking problem: when multiple video sensor nodes are deployed to
tracking a certain 

target in the sensor networks, it is important to further explore the

between multiple video sensor nodes for facilitating the target tracking


The objective of this workshop is to bring together state-of-the-art

contributions, tutorials, and position papers that address these key
aspects of mobile, 

multimedia Ad Hoc & Sensor Networks. Original papers describing
completed and 

unpublished work not currently under review by any other

workshop are solicited. 


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:


* Scalable and flexible network architectures, deployments, and
heterogeneous applications

* New middleware, system, and underlying infrastructure

* Semantic annotation for multimedia streams processing and management

* Protocols for supporting real-time and reliable multimedia streaming

* Energy-efficient multimedia gathering, transmission, traffic
management, and sensor data 


* Scalability and mobility issues in cross-layer design, and
optimization for effective 


* Context/content aware approaches for facilitating multimedia streaming

* Secure multimedia streaming and transmission, QoS and admission

* Cooperative transmission for multimedia delivery, and collaborative
