Mobile Ad-hoc and Sensor Networks
The principal theme of MSN conferences is the development and deployment of protocols, algorithms, systems, and applications for mobile ad-hoc and wi- less sensor networks. Following the success of MSN 2005 held during December 13–15 2005 in Wuhan, China, MSN 2006 provided a forum for researchers and practitioners working in related areas to exchange research results and share development experiences. MSN 2006 attracted 254 submissions. Each paper was reviewed by at least two members of the ProgramCommittee. The ?nal programincluded 73 papers, which covered a range of di?erent topics, including routing, network protocols, security, etc. The Organizing Committee would like to thank the Advisory Committee members Keith K. C. Chan, Marco Conti, Mario Gerla, Lionel Ni, and Jie Wu for their support and guidance in the conference organization. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the authors for their submissions to the c- ference. Many of them traveled great distances to participate in this symposium and make their valuable contributions. Thanks to all the Program Committee members for their valuable time and e?ort in reviewing the papers. Without their help and advice this program would not be possible. Special thanks go to the conference PC Vice-Chairs, Eric Fleury, Zhen Jiang, Soung-Chang Liew, Yunhao Liu, Vojislav B. Misic, Amiya Nayak, Pedro M. Ruiz, Paolo Santi, and Jingyuan(Alex) Zhang for their hard work in assembling the international PC and coordinating the review process.
