The 8th ACM International Conference on Underwater Networks and Systems
November 11-13, 2013, Kaohsiung, TAIWAN
Co-sponsored by Acoustical Society of America (ASA)
The oceans cover 71% of the Earth's surface and represent one of the
least explored frontiers; yet, the oceans are integral to climate
regulation, nutrient production, oil retrieval, and transportation.
Also, water systems in general are of vital importance to life on
Earth and commerce. For these reasons, there is significant interest
in monitoring aquatic environments for scientific, environmental,
commercial, safety, and military purposes.
WUWNet is the premier venue for research and development bringing
real-time, in-situ sensing and actuation to this aquatic world.
The goal of this conference is to bring together researchers and
practitioners in areas relevant to underwater networks and systems.
Thus, many aspects of the networking protocol stack - from the
physical layer to the application layer and the various system
issues - will be represented at this conference. The objective
is to serve as a forum for presenting state-of-the-art research
and development, for exchanging ideas and experiences, and for
facilitating interactions and collaborations.
The conference will span three days, including presentations of
keynote speeches, plenary talks, technical papers, and posters/demos.
The scope of the WUWNet conference covers a broad range of research
directions relevant to underwater networks and network-related
signal processing, communications, systems, and applications.
Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Underwater network and system architectures
* Efficient underwater communications (including acoustic,
optical, RF, and wired, etc.), with techniques from the
physical layer to the application layer
* Underwater acoustic modeling and signal processing
* Cooperative underwater communications, including, PHY,
MAC, routing, and data transfer, etc.
* Services for underwater systems, such as localization,
synchronization, navigation, security, etc.
* Communication & coordination for underwater vehicles
and sensor nodes, or human operator interaction
* Coordinated energy harvesting systems and power systems
for underwater networks and systems
* Energy-efficient algorithms, and protocol design for
underwater networks, as well as signal/image processing
and communication systems
* Operating system and middleware support for underwater
networks and systems
* Applications that broadly address underwater networks
and systems, including coordinated underwater vehicles
* Modeling, simulation, and testbeds for underwater systems
* Experimental results from underwater networking, signal/image
processing and communications field trials
* Application requirements for underwater networks, signal/image
processing and communication systems presented by end users
Submissions for technical papers must describe original research, not
published or currently under review for other workshops, conferences,
journals, or magazines.
All papers will be reviewed by the program committee for novelty and
contribution. The workshop accepts full and short papers. Short papers
may represent less mature work than full papers, or may contain new
ideas for future research. Full papers should be more complete in their
treatment of the topic. Paper submission will be handled electronically.
Authors should prepare a PDF version of their papers. The page limit
for full papers is 8 pages, and that for short papers is 5 pages in
standard ACM conference format.
In addition, position papers with 2-page extended abstracts (in standard
ACM conference format) can be submitted for, e.g., interesting intermediate
results of undergoing research, promising progresses, educational overview
on the state of the art in this field, and insightful analysis of the
historical or futuristic developments on various topics.
Please see the conference website for definitive formatting guidelines
and sample templates. All accepted papers and extended abstracts are
subject to the deadlines specified below and will be included in the
