Call for Papers

Paper submission website is available in EDAS:

We are pleased to invite you to submit original contributions to IEEE MASS 2023. This can include, technical and experimental, theoretical, conceptual contributions. All original, unpublished contributions are solicited in all aspects of mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) and smart systems, from mobile networking/computing to cyber-physical systems to Internet of Things, from theory to systems and applications. All submissions will be peer-reviewed based on relevance, originality, importance and clarity.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • 5G networks and technologies
  • AI/ML for smart wireless networks
  • AI and machine learning aided protocol design and resource allocation
  • AI and machine learning based applications for ad hoc networks
  • Algorithms for MANETs and WSNs
  • Application Layer Protocols
  • Clustering, topology control, coverage, and connectivity
  • Cognitive networking
  • Cooperative and cognitive communication
  • Cooperative sensing, compressive sensing, sensing from communications
  • Cloud, crowd-sourced, participatory and (mobile) social sensing
  • Cyber-physical systems and applications
  • Data gathering, fusion, and dissemination
  • Energy-efficient architectures, algorithms, and protocols
  • Experiences in real-world applications and deployments
  • Flying Ad-Hoc Networks
  • Free-space optical networks
  • Heterogeneous networks
  • Internet of Things (IoT) devices, gateways, and infrastructure
  • Light-weight distributed machine learning

  • Wearable and human-centric devices and networks

All submissions will be peer-reviewed on the basis of relevance, originality, importance, and clarity.

Submissions Guidelines and Proceedings

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers that are not currently under review elsewhere. All submissions should be written in English with a maximum length of 9 single-spaced, double-column pages using 10pt fonts on 8.5 in x 11 in paper, including all figures, tables, and references, in PDF format. Authors must use the Manuscript Templates for IEEE Conference Proceedings. Reviewing will be single-blind, i.e., authors can keep their names on their submitted paper. Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings published by IEEE and will be presented at the conference. Based on TPC reviews and discussions, some papers may be accepted as 5-page short papers or 2-page posters in addition to the regular 9-page papers. For all papers, IEEE reserves the right to exclude the paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference. Note that the conference will also include a poster and demo session.
