WONS 2022 17th Wireless On-demand Network systems and Services Conference 30 March - 1 April 2022
HYBRID: in-person (Oppdal, Norway) and online

Technical Sponsors

Hybrid Conference



WONS 2022 will be a hybrid conference: in person and virtual. This was decided in view of the possible Covid travel restrictions. As part of this decision, we have extended the deadline until December 10 to accommodate as many authors and participants as possible.

We are very happy to welcome you in Oppdal, Norway. Based on how Norway has dealt with the pandemic over the past two years, we are confident that in-person attendance will be possible for most participants. Please note that WONS has always been held close to skiing resorts. While skiing is optional, the long break in the afternoon has always facilitated this important social aspect of our conference, and we will again plan the program accordingly.






About The Conference: CFP


Wireless on-demand network systems and services have become pivotal in shaping our future networked world. Starting as a niche application over Wi-Fi, they can now be found in mainstream technologies like Bluetooth LE, LTE Direct and Wireless LANs, and have become the cornerstone of upcoming networking paradigms including mesh and sensor networks, cloud networks, vehicular networks, disruption tolerant and opportunistic networks, and in-body networks.

The challenges of this exciting research field are numerous. Examples include how to make smart use of these novel technologies when multiple technologies or a mix of permanent services and on-demand networking opportunities are available to a network node, how to provide robust services in highly dynamic environments, how to efficiently employ and operate heavily resource-constrained devices, and how to develop robust and lightweight algorithms for self-organization and adaptation.

IEEE/IFIP WONS, now numbering seventeen editions, has established itself as a high quality forum to address these and related challenges. WONS’22 is able to continue to provide a global platform for rich interactions between experts in their fields, discussing innovative contributions in a stimulating environment.

This announcement solicits original contributions of high-quality research providing novel insights on all aspects of wireless on-demand networks and systems; from protocol and network design, modeling, performance evaluation, profitability models, energy efficiency, QoS models and mechanisms, practical implementations, service level aspects, application use-cases, to the integration of multiple wireless network technologies. Topics of interest comprise, but are not limited to:
  • 5G and 6G networks
  • Cognitive radio networks
  • Cross-layer design
  • Data analytics and ML/AI driven network systems
  • Green wireless networks
  • Heterogeneous wireless networks
  • Implementations and testbeds
  • Internet of Things
  • Intra-body and biomedical on-demand systems
  • Localization and mobility management
  • Middleware aspects
  • Mobile computing and services
  • Network and service management
  • Novel architectures and protocols
  • Novel applications and services
  • Open source software, open source hardware and open data
  • Performance evaluation through simulations, emulations and real-world experiments
  • Pervasive and ubiquitous computing
  • Quantum computing and networking
  • Security, privacy, and trust
  • Social and economic aspects
  • Theoretical and data driven modeling and optimization
  • Vehicular networks


WONS 2022 is Technically Co-Sponsored by IFIP TC6 and the IEEE Computer Society's Technical Committee on Computer Communications (TCCC). Accepted and presented papers will appear in the conference proceedings published in the IFIP Open Access Digital Library and the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

The authors of selected papers from WONS 2022 edition will be invited to submit an extended version of their work to Elsevier Computer Communications for possible publication in a dedicated Virtual Special Issue (VSI). VSI submitted papers should extend significantly the original work offering additional contribution and insight to the community.

Dates


New Deadline: December 10, 2021

Paper submission: Dec 10, 2021 (hard deadline)
Acceptance notification: Jan 17, 2022 Camera ready: Feb 25, 2022


Manuscript Submission


Authors are invited to submit double-column long papers (up to 8 pages) and short papers (up to 4 pages) as a PDF file in IEEE format with a font size no smaller than 10pt. Short papers should present future research directions and ongoing work with visionary, innovative ideas; accepted short papers will be presented in a separate session at the conference and will be included in the conference proceedings. Submitted papers must not have been published elsewhere and must not be currently under review by another conference or journal. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper.

Review Process

We will have at least 3 reviews per paper and we count on the TPC members to do the reviews themselves in order to ensure high quality and comprehensive reviews. After the reviews, TPC members will discuss the paper and will reach one of the following decisions: ‘Accept’, ‘Revise’ or ‘Reject’. The papers in the ‘Revise’ category will be assigned a shepherd. The shepherd will oversee the revision process (which will take around 3-4 weeks) and ultimately decide on whether the paper will be accepted or not. We will assign the shepherds among the program committee on a voluntary basis. With the introduction of the shepherding to the review process this year, our goal is to further improve the paper quality at WONS’22.
