WUWNet invites submission of manuscripts (including full papers and short papers) in all areas relevant to underwater networks. All paper submissions should describe original research, not published or currently under review for other workshops, conferences, or journals. Authors of accepted papers will need to sign an ACM copyright release form. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper must present the paper at WUWNet 2009. The Proceedings of the workshop will be published by ACM Press and distributed at the workshop; copies of the Proceedings will also be available for sale from ACM after the workshop.

Papers must be submitted electronically through the following website. If you have any questions regarding paper submission, please contact the TPC chairs: John Heidemann and Peter Corke

Submission Guidelines:

The workshop accepts both regular full papers and short papers. Short papers present new ideas or new visions that may influence the direction of future research, yet they may be less mature than full papers. While an exhaustive evaluation of the proposed ideas is not necessary, insight and in-depth understanding of the issues is expected. Short papers will be reviewed the same way as full papers by the technical program committee and will be published in the workshop proceedings.

The paper submission is a two step process: first the paper need to be registered, and then submitted. The deadline for paper registration is May 8, while that to submit the paper is May 17. Paper registration and paper submission are done through the same submission website.

Paper submission formats for WUWnet must follow the ACM standard for SIG proceedings. A summary of the required format is: double column, Times Roman font for the paper body, 9 point font size or larger for body text, U.S. letter size paper (8.5"x11") with 1" margins on all sides and a 1/3" gutter between columnns. Lines should be spaced with 11 points or more from baseline-to-baseline. Templates for the standard ACM format are available from the ACM SIGS website. The format of submited papers will be automatically checked by the conference paper submissions website. WUWNet 2009 paper submissions should be made to the WUWNet submissions website.

Submitted papers will be judged based on their quality and novelty through a rigorous peer-reviewing process. All accepted papers will appear in the workshop proceedings. Some papers that cannot be included in the main workshop program may be accepted as extended abstracts. If the authors agree, these papers will be included in the proceedings as 2-page extended abstracts and will be presented at the workshop in a poster session. The call for posters and demos will be announced separately.
