Call For Papers

Underwater acoustic communications have been developed for commercial and military purposes. Commercial communications are used for UUVs and ocean monitoring, and military ones are utilized for submarine communications. Many techniques of these applications have been developed. However, covert and long range communication methods still remain challenge areas. This workshop focuses on covert underwater acoustic communication technology.

Technical Topics
This workshop focuses on covert underwater acoustic communication technology, long range communication,
but are not limited to:

  • Bio-mimic UWA communications
  • Low Probability of Intercept/Low Probability of Detection for UWA communications
  • Long range receiver technology for UWA communications
  • Ocean environments for UWA communications
  • Long range channel characteristics for UWA communications
  • Underwater bio-noise for UWA communications
  • Modulation for long range communications for UWA communications
  • etc.

All papers must be submitted electronically, in PDF format, and uploaded on EDAS. The direct link for paper submission is https://edas.info/newPaper.php?c=25428&track=95947. There are two options for the submissions, either a full paper or a short paper. We decided to allow the submission of short papers in order to accommodate the most recent research outcomes. The submissions should be formatted with single-spaced, double-column pages using at least 10 pt (or higher) size fonts on A4 or letter pages in IEEE style format. The maximum number of pages is 6 for full papers and 2 for short papers. Detailed formatting and submission instructions will be available on the conference web site (http://www.icufn.org).
Accepted and presented papers will be published in the ICUFN 2019 Conference Proceedings. Also extended versions of selected papers will be published in the following international journals as a special issue or section for the ICUFN 2019.

  • Wireless Personal Communications (SCIE)
  • International Journal of Distributed Sensor Networks (SCIE)
  • Journal on Internet Technology (SCIE)
  • Mobile Information System (SCIE)
  • Sensors (SCIE)
  • ICT Express (Scopus)
  • Recent Advances on Communications and Networking Technology
