Ambient, pervasive, and ubiquitous computing are seen as a drastic shift for the computing systems. Indeed networked computing resources shall become invisible to users and cooperatively provide them with the right services at the right time.

At the same time, ad hoc networks are wireless infrastructureless systems dynamically formed by co-operating nodes within communication range of each other. As such, they appear as an attractive networking paradigm for ambient computing.

The aim of the workshop is to investigate the contribution of ad hoc networks to the realization of the ambient computing vision, from supporting algorithms and protocols to emerging computing paradigms and software system architectures.

The overall goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers working on the numerous topics related to ad hoc ambient computing, aiming to provide an environment for sharing experiences and initiating collaborations.
