which are not in the appropriate format will be rejected without review.


All papers will be reviewed for technical merit. Each accepted paper
will be published in the conference proceedings, provided at least
one author of the paper registers to present the paper at the
conference.


All abstract and paper submissions will be handled electronically
at the conference website.


SYSTEM DEMONSTRATIONS
---------------------
Proposals for system demonstrations related to wireless networks
are also solicited. Proposals should not exceed 3 pages in LNCS format
and should include a description of the demo and the equipment to be used.
Potential demonstrators are requested to submit a proposal in PS or PDF
format to one of the Co-Chairs of the Technical Program Committee
(Thomas Kunz -- tkunz [at] sce.carleton.ca or S. S. Ravi -- ravi [at] cs.albany.edu)
by May 1, 2006. Please include contact information (postal address, email
address, phone and fax numbers) in the submission.
