Special Session on "Delay Tolerant, Mobile and Sensor Networks"
16th Euromicro International Conference on
Parallel, Distributed and
Special Session on
Paper submission deadline: August 1, 2007
Mobile communicating terminals are more and more widely spread. These
include laptops, PDAs, mobile phones, sensors, etc. Most of them
support communication technologies such as Bluetooth, WI-FI or
specific radio systems.
They self organize into networks that exhibit strong mobility and
volatility. Any terminal can appear or disappear from the network at
any time because it has been switched on or off or because it has been
damaged. Radio communication is not reliable either because of
possible interferences and also simply because the users and thus
their equipments move, what can cause sudden ruptures of communication
links. Event when the links do not break, unpredictable delays can
These characteristics have to be taken into account at all
levels when developing applications for such networks, so as to ensure
delay, rupture and mobility tolerance. The goal of
this special session is to bring together researchers and
practitioners that have experimented on these problems and/or that
have build solutions to help support them.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
"Delay Tolerant, Mobile and Sensor Networks"
- applications (including situation management and data fusion)
- local computations, P2P and other paradigms
- formal models
