The 18th IEEE International Conference on Mobile Ad-Hoc and Smart Systems

IEEE MASS is a premier annual forum for sharing original, novel ideas in mobile ad-hoc networks and smart systems, defined broadly. As wireless ad-hoc networks continue to evolve and specialize into a number of application scenarios and environments, and sensor-based systems and technologies increasingly permeate our everyday life and become the inner fabric of the Internet of Things and cyber-physical systems, the unfolding of smart environments such as smart cities, smart farming, smart healthcare, and smart manufacturing, to name a few, demand integrated solutions that can make intelligent use of both cloud and edge systems, while applying machine learning and artificial intelligence tools to handle their growing complexity and to leverage the vast amount of available data created.

Sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society, the 18th edition of the IEEE International Conference on Mobile Ad-Hoc and Smart Systems (MASS) will be held in beautiful Denver, CO, USA, in 2021, and it aims at bringing together researchers, developers, and practitioners to address recent advances in mobile ad-hoc and smart systems, covering algorithms, theory, protocols, systems & applications, experimental evaluations and testbeds, security/privacy, as well as AI/ML-based smart design.

Notice about COVID-19: We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and a decision whether to hold the conference on-site or virtual will be made by the end of June or early July. Should the conference be held on-site, we understand that travel to Denver, CO, will still be difficult or even impossible for some. We recommend that all authors for accepted papers investigate travel options and apply for entry visa to the U.S., but if the authors are able to prove that on-site attendance of the conference is not possible, we will allow remote presentation.
