Conti M. Second international Workshop on Multi-hop Ad Hoc networks: from Theory to Reality (Realman 2006). In: 2nd international workshop on Multi-hop ad hoc networks: from theory to reality. Editorial, pp. 1 - 7. Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2006.
Welcome to the second edition of the Workshop on Multi-hop Ad hoc Networks: from Theory to Reality, REALMAN 2006. This year the workshop is co-located with ACM MobiHoc 2006 and is sponsored by ACM SIGMOBILE.Ad hoc networking technologies have big potentialities for innovative applications of great impact on our everyday life. To exploit these potentialities, simulation modeling and theoretical analyses have to be complemented by real experiences (e.g., measurements on real prototypes), which provide both a direct evaluation of ad hoc networks and, at the same time, precious information to realistically model these systems.In the last few years, researchers have increasingly regarded experimental studies as a key approach to understand the very features of multi-hop ad hoc networks, and eventually enable the adoption of this technology in the mass market. This stimulated a new community of researchers combining theoretical research on ad hoc networking with experiences/measurements obtained by implementing ad hoc network prototypes. The aim of REALMAN is to bring together these researchers.The response to the Call for Papers has shown that the REALMAN community is steadily increasing both in number and in quality. In response to the Call for Papers, we received 68 papers, addressing topics related to all fields of multi-hop ad hoc networking. Out of them, the Program Committee selected 12 papers for presentation in the workshop sessions. In addition, 3 papers have been selected for presentation in the poster session. In response to a separate Call for Demos, we received several interesting demo proposals. We have selected 10 proposals out of them to be demonstrated during the workshop. Finally, the REALMAN Program also includes a Keynote Speech given by Prof. Nitin H. Vaidya of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and a panel. These figures show that, following the success of the first edition, REALMAN is establishing as a premiere forum for presenting and discussing measurement studies and experiences based on real ad hoc network test-beds and prototypes.
