Network Simulator version 2 (NS-2) is a free and open source discrete event network simulator developed at UC Berkeley. It is simply an event driven simulation tool that has proved useful in studying the dynamic nature of communication networks. It covers a large part of applications, protocols, network types, network elements and traffic models. Undoubtedly, NS2 has become the most widely used open source network simulator, and one of the most widely used network simulators. This Workshop aims to provide an insight into simulation of Mobile Ad-hoc Networks (MANETs) and Sensor Networks using NS-2.

The workshop is conducted by Trivandrum Chapter of ACM in asscoiation with Indian Institute of Information Technology and Management-Kerala (IIITM-K), Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum) on February 8-9, 2014 at IIITM-K, Technopark,Trivandrum.
