Abstract
(English)
It is our great pleasure to introduce this Special Section of the Journal, presenting advanced solutions for mobile challenged networks. The special section collects extended papers from the 9th ACM Workshop on Challenged Networks, CHANTS 2014. After a decade of research into this area, the subject of challenged networks is both generating solutions for practical applications, still remaining a fertile ground for innovative research in a broad area of topics. Indeed, the networking mechanisms devised for challenged networks (encompassing also the opportunistic and DTN networking paradigms) can support several novel research areas, such as Mobile Edge Computing, IoT, architectures for the Future Internet (such as 5G), community networks, network support for developing areas, just to mention a few. The papers in this special section provide a very significant sample of the dual nature of current research in challenged network (applied and fundamental), covering both practical solutions for fully exploiting their potential, as well as fundamental results. Specifically, the special section presents findings about the optimal use of mobile devices storage resources when local applications and opportunistic forwarding tasks compete for them; the development and test of a practical context-aware framework for Web-based deployment of DTN applications; the analysis of robustness of opportunistic networks under Sybil attacks.
