International Conference on Advances in Mesh Networks

MESH 2008

August 25-31, 2008 - Cap Esterel, France

Call for Papers

The wireless mesh networks came to rescue the challenging issues related for predicting the location of a user and choosing the position of access points in wireless distributed systems. Basically mesh networks guarantee the connectivity through a multihop wireless backbone formed by stationary routers. There is no differentiation between uplink and downlink, but performance depends on the routing protocols. There are several challenging issues for properly exploiting wireless mesh networks' features, such as fast-link quality variation, channel assignments, performance, QoS-routing, scalability, slow/high speed mobile users, service differentiation, and others.

MESH 2008 is an inaugural event addressing the most challenging aspects for designing and deploying mesh networks. Contributions concerning unpublished results, lessons learnt, work in progress, positions, and future research are expected to be submitted on the following topics (but not limited to):

Architectures and algorithms

  • Frameworks
  • Wireless interference models
  • Topology models
  • Large-scale networks
  • Real-time and non-real-time communications
  • Channel assignment schemes
  • Resource allocation
  • Centralized and distributed scheduling
  • Performance
  • Static/mobile scenarios
  • Access control
  • Service differentiation
  • Security, Privacy, and Trust


  • Protocol interference models
  • Access and routing protocols
  • Single-channel multihop / multi-channel routing
  • Joint routing and scheduling
  • Routing metrics
  • Multichannel routing
  • Quality of Services routing
  • Multimedia-centric routing
  • Fast-link quality metrics
  • Bandwidth estimation
  • Cross-layer multicast routing
  • QoS-based access protocols for mesh networks
  • Multi-channel access protocols


  • Multimedia services
  • Home IPTV
  • WiMax
  • Broadband home networking communications
  • Emergency/disaster
  • Telemedicine and e-health
  • Smart buildings
  • Broadband Internet access


The MESH 2008 Proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society Conference Publishing Services and on-line via IEEE XPlore Digital Library. IEEE will index the papers with major indexes.

Important deadlines:

Submission deadline April 5, 2008 April 15, 2008
Notification May 15, 2008 May 19, 2008
Registration and camera ready June 1, 2008 June 5, 2008

Only .pdf or .doc files will be accepted for paper submission. All received papers will be acknowledged via the EDAS system.

Final author manuscripts will be 8.5" x 11" (two columns IEEE format), not exceeding 6 pages; max 4 extra pages allowed at additional cost. The formatting instructions can be found on the Instructions page. Helpful information for paper formatting can be found on the here.

Once you receive the notification of paper acceptance, you will be provided by the IEEE CS Press an online author kit with all the steps an author needs to follow to submit the final version. The author kits URL will be included in the letter of acceptance.

Technical marketing/business/positioning presentations

The conference initiates a series of business, technical marketing, and positioning presentations on the same topics. Speakers must submit a 10-12 slide deck presentations with substantial notes accompanying the slides, in the .ppt format (.pdf-ed). The slide deck will be published in the conference’s CD collection, together with the regular papers. Please send your presentations to


Tutorials provide overviews of current high interest topics. Proposals can be for half or full day tutorials. Please send your proposals to

Panel proposals:

The organizers encourage scientists and industry leaders to organize dedicated panels dealing with controversial and challenging topics and paradigms. Panel moderators are asked to identify their guests and manage that their appropriate talk supports timely reach our deadlines. Moderators must specifically submit an official proposal, indicating their background, panelist names, their affiliation, the topic of the panel, as well as short biographies.

For more information,

Workshop proposals

We welcome workshop proposals on issues complementary to the topics of this conference. Your requests should be forwarded to
