The sixth annual IEEE SECON conference will provide a unique forum to exchange ideas, discuss best practices, raise awareness, and share experiences among researchers and practitioners in the field of sensor, mesh, and ad hoc networks and systems. IEEE SECON grew out of the IEEE INFOCOM conference in 2004, in order to create an event that focuses on the exciting topics of Sensor, Mesh & Ad Hoc Communication Networks.

Papers describing original, previously unpublished research work, experimental efforts, practical experiences, and industrial and commercial developments in sensor, ad hoc, and mesh communications and networks are solicited. Particular topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Modeling, Algorithms, and Performance Evaluation
* Measurements and Experimental Research
* Hardware and Software Platforms, Middleware
* New Architectures
* MAC, Network, Transport, Application Protocols and Cross-Layer Design
* Network Coding, MIMO, Cooperative Communications and Other Novel
* Cognitive Radios, Mobile and Vehicular Networks, Underwater Networks, Urban Sensing, and other Emerging Areas
* Security, Survivability and Fault Tolerance

Papers should neither have been published elsewhere nor currently under review by another conference or journal. All papers for IEEE SECON 2009 must be submitted electronically via the EDAS system: To go directly to the EDAS paper registration page, click here. Registration only requires to provide the title, authors, keywords and abtsract of the paper. It is a mandatory step which allows TPC chairs to start organizing the review process before actual paper submission. Small changes in the abstract, title are possible before the actual paper submission. Papers must be no longer than 9 pages and in font size no smaller than 10 points. Please refer to the IEEE SECON website for detailed instructions on preparing and submitting the manuscript. Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings published by IEEE. A sufficiently extended version of the best paper(s) in the area of wireless sensor networks will be considered for inclusion into the JSAC special issue on Simple Wireless Sensor Networking Solutions (
