Welcome to AOC 2016!
The organizing committee of the IEEE WoWMoM workshop on Autonomic and Opportunistic Communications is delighted to welcome you to the 2016 edition of AOC, which will be held June 21, 2016, in Coimbra, Portugal.
The AOC 2016 workshop is aimed at serving as a meeting point for people working in the area and a forum for exchanging ideas, discussing solutions, and sharing experiences among researchers, professionals, and application developers, both from industry and academia. As with the previous nine editions of the AOC workshop series, the scope of this year’s workshop will remain on general issues related to opportunistic networking and computing. Yet, AOC 2016 will have a primary interest in new directions of opportunistic communications, such as mobile social networking, autonomous solutions for smart cities, big data for autonomic and opportunistic systems service composition techniques, scenarios of co-existence with infrastructure networks such as solutions based on fog or edge computing, and insights to their operation coming from other disciplines such as complex network analysis. The workshop will solicit original papers addressing theoretical and practical aspects of autonomic and opportunistic communications but also papers describing prototype implementations and deployments.
