More on this journal...

The IJAHUC publishes state-of-the-art international research in all areas of ad hoc and ubiquitous computing topics. The missions of IJAHUC are to improve international research on new and valuable ad hoc and ubiquitous computing technology by publishing high-quality articles, and to expose the reader to various methodologies and types of articles.

  • Professors and graduate students in telecommunication, computer science, and electrical engineering
  • Ad hoc and ubiquitous computing technology researchers, engineers and managers
  • General participants in ad hoc and ubiquitous computing technology


The IJAHUC serves as a medium to report, exchange and discuss work-in-progress, experience, case studies, trend-setting ideas on ad hoc and ubiquitous computing as well as potential future directions and issues. In addition, theoretical contributions (such as new techniques, concepts, and analyses) and practical contributions (such as system experiments, prototypes, and new applications) are included.
