ACM CHANTS is a top tier major workshop attended by top researchers, students, developers, and practitioners from academia and industry, to discuss new ideas and future directions in delay and disruption tolerant applications, also known as, Challenged networks. Common examples of challenged networks include high delay environments such as inter-planetary networks, limited power environments such as sensor and wildlife monitoring networks, underwater networks, and communication in settings that lack infrastructure such as rural and remote areas, and military battlefields. Such networks are not well served by standard TCP/IP solutions, due to the prevalence of disconnection, disruption, intermittency, large delays, or other factors. More recent applications and research areas have evolved that can leverage challenged networks including mobile cloud computing, participatory sensory, crowd sourcing, traffic offloading, and the Internet of Things. This site provides an archive to all CHANTS workshops that have taken place.
