Step 1: PAPER FORMATTING (by December 14, 2009)
Authors MUST use the author kit (Latex or Word template with 2 columns, we strongly recommend the use of Latex). Pages MUST NOT be numbered. The maximum length of a camera-ready paper is 8 pages, in the standard IEEE two-column format. No paper length extension will be allowed. Papers not formatted with such a template will not be published.
Step 2: REGISTRATION (by December 14, 2009)
Authors must register to and pay the conference fee before December 14, 2009. Failure to do so will result in the paper not being accepted for presentation and not being incuded in the proceedings.
Registration can be done by sending the registration form via email or fax according to the instructions on the form. When you register, you have to provide the EDAS code(s) of your accepted paper(s). Registration fees are as follows:
Registration type Early (before 14/12/2009) Regular (after 14/12/2009) Student € 350 € 450 Regular (IEEE member) € 450 € 550 Regular (non IEEE member) € 550 € 650 Additional papers € 200 each
Step 3: IEEE COPYRIGHT FORM (by December 14, 2009)
IEEE policy requires that, prior to publication, all authors or their employers must transfer to the IEEE in writing any copyright they hold for their individual papers. Transferring copyright is a necessary requirement for publication, except for material in the public domain or which is reprinted with permission from a previously published, copyrighted publication.
In order to fill in the electronic IEEE Copyright Form, please access the EDAS page of your accepted paper(s), and click on the Copyright form button (located just above the Final Manuscript line). Then follow the on-screen instructions until you are done.
You do not need to email it or fax it. Those who already submitted the paper form do not have to submit the electronic version too.
Any forms not sent by Dec. 14 will mean the paper will not be included in the Proceedings or in IEEE Xplore.
Step 4: PDF GENERATION (by December 14, 2009)
All conference papers submitted must adhere to the IEEE Xplore PDF specification by using IEEE PDF eXpress. This is a free tool that allows you to check the conformance of your paper to IEEE Xplore.
To check your paper with IEEE eXpress:
|First-time users||Previous users, but using it the first time for a new conference||Returning users|
|a. Click "New Users - Click Here"|
b.Enter wons10x for the Conference ID, your email address, and choose a new password. Continue to enter information as prompted.
c. Check that the contact information is still valid, and click "Submit".
|a. Enter wons10x for the Conference ID, your email address, and enter the password you used for your old account.|
b. When you click "Login", you'll receive an error saying you need to set up an account. Simply click "Continue". By entering your previously used email address and password combination, you will enable your old account for access to this new conference.
c. You will receive online and email confirmation of successful account setup.

|Options (choose one)||If the PDF submitted fails the PDF check||If you are not satisfied with the IEEE PDF eXpress-converted PDF||If the PDF submitted passed the PDF Check, or you are satisfied with your IEEE PDF eXpress-converted PDF|
|Option 1||Submit your source file for conversion by clicking Try again, then Submit Source Files for Conversion||Resubmit your source file with corrections (Try again, then Submit Source Files for Conversion)||Submit your IEEE Xplore compatible PDF (see STEP 5 below).|
|Option 2||Read the PDF Check report, then click "The PDF Check Report" in the sidebar to get information on possible solutions||Submit a PDF by clicking Try again, then Submit PDF for Checking||Submit your IEEE Xplore compatible PDF (see STEP 5 below).|
|Option 3||"Request Technical Help" through your account||"Request a Manual Conversion" through your account||Submit your IEEE Xplore compatible PDF (see STEP 5 below).|
Step 5: FINAL SUBMISSION (by December 14, 2009)
Upload your Xpress-validated PDF file onto EDAS, by updating your previous submission.
Authors of papers accepted as posters must format their paper according to the steps at the top of this page. The following are guidelines on how to produce your actual poster for the WONS poster session.
Scope of the conference
As more and more users become increasingly dependent on wireless and mobile communications, it is necessary to secure a reliable and dependable technology support for "on-demand" services through any of the wireless architectures that have been in development recently, such as mesh networks, wimax, wifi, ad hoc networks, sensor networks, etc.
However, there are serious challenges to overcome, such as the integration of infrastructure-based and ad hoc networks, robust algorithms for self-organizing, reconfigurable wireless networks, on-demand service models and their provision in a highly-volatile interconnection environment, and smooth interoperability of architectures.
WONS, now in its seventh edition, has established itself as a high-quality forum to address these challenges in the context of a workshop that is rich in intense interactions and based on innovative contributions by experts in the field.
This announcement solicits original submissions of high-quality research papers on "wireless on demand networks" that provide novel insights on protocol and network design, modeling and performance evaluation, pricing and profitability models, QoS models, practical implementations, service level aspects and Internet integration of wireless networks.
Topics related to wireless ad hoc networks, mesh networks, vehicular networks and sensor networks comprise, but are not limited to:
A special session on Wireless Body Area Networks (WBANs) will be organized by Prosense (European FP7 Project).
Submitted papers must not have been published elsewhere nor currently be under
review by another conference or journal. Authors are invited to submit
double-column full (8 pages) and short papers (4 pages) in PDF format having a
font size no smaller than 10pt. Short papers should present future research
directions, ongoing work, visionary, innovative ideas; accepted short papers
will populate poster sessions at the conference and will be included in the
Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper.
Conference proceedings will be included in the IEEE Xplore library.
Further submission instructions will be published on the conference web site.
