Call for Special Issue on MANETS


International Journal of Computer Applications (IJCA) Journal invites Contribution for SPECIAL ISSUE "Recent Advancements on Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs)"

Guest Editor: Kamaljit I. Lakhtaria

AIM of Special Issue

Minimal configuration and quick deployment of mobile ad hoc networks suitable for many application, considering increasing application and lot more research work going upwards in this area. The presence of a dynamic and adaptive routing protocol will enable ad hoc networks to be formed quickly. Such a network consists of many small nodes with sensing, computing, communicating, and control capabilities.

MANET covers a wide audience of Researcher, Students, and Research Laboratories; observing MANET Application, Security challenges, Performance and many parameters. This special issue aims to summarize the latest development of MANET as well as deployment experiences.

  • Architecture Specification Mobile Ad hoc Networks
  • Cross-layer design issues for ad hoc wireless networks
  • Energy management in ad hoc wireless networks
  • MAC layer protocols for Mobile Ad hoc Networks
  • MANET in Heteregenous Networks
  • Mobility models for multihop ad hoc wireless networks
  • Multicast routing protocols for Mobile Ad hoc Networks
  • Performance Measurement of Mobile Ad hoc Networks
  • Quality of Service in ad hoc wireless networks
  • Recent developments in ad hoc wireless networks
  • Routing protocols for Ad hoc wireless networks
  • Security Threat to Mobile Ad hoc Networks
  • Vehicluar Adhoc Network (VANET)
  • MANET Security Issues and various Aspects

The purpose of this special issue is to solicit high-quality theoretical as well as practical work on the landscape of recent advances in mobile and wireless test beds and related research infrastructures that will further improve the scope and possibilities of Mobile Ad Hoc Networks.
