Workshop Agenda

Workshop Presentations!

We are pleased to announce the first workshop on the Ad hoc On-Demand Distance Vector (AODV) routing protocol. AODV Next Generation (AODVng) 2002 will bring together researchers and engineers who have experience working with AODV, to discuss future directions and enhancements for AODV. The workshop will include presentations by participants, as well as a discussion session on suggested extensions to the basic AODV protocol. The setting of the workshop is informal, and will take place at Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL), the same site as MobiHOC 2002.

We invite one-page abstracts describing recent work related to AODV. If your abstract is accepted, you will be asked to give a presentation on this work at the workshop. There will be no formal proceedings from the workshop, although during the workshop we may decide on some avenue for a publication describing the event. Participation in the workshop is by invitation only.

Because of the limited time available, there are currently no plans for interoperability testing at this event. If there is interest, we can use part of the workshop time to plan the next such event. Also, informal interoperability testing may be possible.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Note that the topic must be related to the AODV protocol, and geared towards future improvement.

Submission Instructions:

All submissions will be handled electronically and must be in ASCII text, PDF or PostScript format. Submissions must be in the form of an abstract and must not exceed 500 words. Because there will not be any formal proceedings, the work may be previously published elsewhere. The proposal may also be a work-in-progress, although meaningful results must be included.

Please send submissions to Charles E. Perkins at

Submission Deadline: *April 30, 2002*
Notification of Acceptance: May 10, 2002
