Wireless ad hoc networks have attracted the attention of the research community in the last several years. Now that the fundamental issues and challenges have been clearly assessed, the focus is partially shifting to new issues, which include application scenarios (road safety, disaster recovery, sensors, actuators, etc.), data-centric operation, autonomous organization, optimization and control, ability to retain operation under intermittent connectivity, and service creation and support. Moreover, new and exciting challenges are posed by closely related networks such as wireless mesh networks, sensor networks, and vehicular networks, delay tolerant and opportunistic networks. Finally, the today's market explosion of smart phones is creating new opportunities for social networks, whose thorough understanding requires to combine opportunistic networking aspects with comprehension of social behavior and mobility patterns.

Med-Hoc-Net is a major annual international workshop, aiming to serve as a platform for researchers and visionaries from academia, research labs, and industry. Following Sicily (2006), Corfu (2007), Palma de Mallorca (2008), Haifa (2009), and Juan-les-pins (2010), Med-Hoc-Net 2011 will take place in Favignana Island (Italy).
