 *Scope *

 Ad hoc networks, which cover a variety of network paradigms for specific
purposes, such as mobile ad hoc networks, wireless sensor networks,
vehicular networks, underwater networks, airborne networks, underground
networks, personal area networks, and home networks, promise a broad range
of applications in civilian, commercial, and military areas. The aim of the
annual International Conference on Ad Hoc Networks (AdHocNets) is to
provide a forum that brings together researchers from academia, government
laboratories, as well as practitioners from industry to meet and exchange
ideas and recent research work on all aspects of ad hoc networks. Held
annually since 2009, the eighth edition of the event, AdHocNets 2016, will
be held in Ottawa, Canada, in September 2016. The conference will consist
of keynote talks, technical sessions, and associated workshops. The
technical sessions will present original and fundamental research advances
while the workshops will focus on development and application issues in
this hot field. The workshops will be dedicated to specific and more
focused themes, especially to the recent developments and emerging
applications in ad hoc networking.

 *Topics *

 The conference solicits original technical papers that were not previously
published and are not currently under review for publication elsewhere.
Papers should address technical challenges in any type of ad hoc network,
such as, but not limited to, Mobile Ad Hoc Networks, Sensor Networks,
Vehicular Networks, Personal Area Networks, Body Area Networks, Smart Grid
Networks, Nanonetworks, or Home Networks. Possible topics of interest
