1st International Workshop on Ad-hoc Ambient Computing

(co-located with AdHoc-Now 2008)

September 13, 2008, Sophia Antipolis, France

Ambient, pervasive, and ubiquitous computing are seen as a drastic shift for the computing systems. Indeed networked computing resources shall become invisible to users and cooperatively provide them with the right services at the right time.

At the same time, ad hoc networks are wireless infrastructureless systems dynamically formed by co-operating nodes within communication range of each other. As such, they appear as an attractive networking paradigm for ambient computing.

The aim of the workshop is to investigate the contribution of ad hoc networks to the realization of the ambient computing vision, from supporting algorithms and protocols to emerging computing paradigms and software system architectures.

The overall goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers working on the numerous topics related to ad hoc ambient computing, aiming to provide an environment for sharing experiences and initiating collaborations.

Topics of Interests:
Topics for the workshop inlude but are not limited to:

  • Ambient peer to peer networks
  • Context awareness using sensor networks
  • Dependability in ad hoc networks
  • Engineering ambient computing systems
  • Middleware for ambient computing
  • Mobile data management in ad hoc networks
  • Next generation networks for ambient computing
  • Opportunistic networking for ambient computing
  • Quality of service
  • Security, privacy & trust
  • Service oriented ambient computing
  • Situation awareness
  • Social groups in ad hoc networks
  • System architectures for ambient computing
  • User-centered ambient systems
