Mission-Critical Networking (MCN) refers to networking for application domains where 
life  or  livelihood  may  be  at  risk.  Typical  application  domains  for  MCN  include  critical 
infrastructure  protection  and  operation,  emergency  and  crisis  intervention,  healthcare  services, 
and military operations. Such networking is essential for safety, security and economic vitality in 
our complex world characterized by uncertainty, heterogeneity, emergent behaviors, and the need 
for  reliable  and  timely  response.  MCN  should  comprise  networking  technology,  infrastructures 
and services that may alleviate the risk and directly enable and enhance connectivity for mission-
critical  information  exchange  among  diverse,  widely-dispersed,  mobile  users.  A  primary 
challenge to MCN is to deploy and dynamically configure and evolve communication networks 
that  are  dependable,  autonomic,  secure,  adaptive,  and  rapidly  deployable  to  support  critical 
missions  and  their  priorities.  In  order  to  operate  effectively,  the  deployed  networks  should 
support  services  such  as  location  determination  of  both  authorized  and  unauthorized  entities, 
quality-of-service aware audio and video communication, emergency calling and alerting, and in-
situ  and  remote  sensing  and  control  in  a  secure  and  dependable  manner.  In  addition,  efficient 
operation  of  such  networks  that  typically  include  numerous  resource-constrained  components 
may   benefit   from   cross-layer   optimization,   cognition,   resource   engineering,   on-demand 
federation, and service-oriented architecture. Also important is the integration of MCN with the 
Internet to reduce cost of deployment and maintenance and to enhance reachability and ubiquity. 
This  special  issue  of  the  Journal  on  Selected  Areas  in  Communications  solicits  high  quality 
technical contributions in mission-critical networking including, but not limited to: 
 
• Architecture and design of MCN and next-
generation emergency calling and alerting 
• Rapidly and dynamically deployable services and 
networks 
• Evolving “elastic” networking with decentralized 
and peer-to-peer resource management and allocation 
• Federation and policy management for 
heterogeneous networks and protocols 
•Trust, security, dependability, privacy, QoS and 
performance awareness and  management for MCN 
• Sensor and actuator networks for 
critical information gathering, tracking 
and real-time control 
• MCN traffic and mobility analysis 
• Formal methodology for cognitive, 
autonomic, and context-aware protocols 
and network management 
• Spectrum management and access  
• Testbeds, benchmarks, performance and 
experimental studies 
 
Paper Submission 
  Manuscripts should describe original, previously unpublished work, not currently under 
review.  Argument  justifying  contribution  specific  to  the  unique  features  of  MCN  must  be 
provided. Prospective authors should follow the IEEE JSAC manuscript format described in the 
Information for Authors at http://www.jsac.ucsd.edu/Guidelines/info.html. Authors should submit 
a  PDF  version  of  their  complete  manuscript  to  mcn-jsac@criticalnet.org  according  to  the 
following timetable: 
    Manuscript submission: April 1, 2009                 First review notification: August 1, 2009 
    Revised manuscript due:  October 1, 2009          Acceptance notification:  November 1, 2009 
    Final manuscript due: January 2, 2010          Publication: June, 2010
