We have been witnessing developments of many innovative applications in the field of ad hoc wireless networks as well as many projects in the area of user-centric, context aware and ambient assisted networks. This paper introduces a novel framework called FedNets that bridges user centric networks to form an ad hoc federation to achieve group cooperation. Our preliminary study of all the mechanisms, requirements and potential techniques that need to be addressed in this regard is presented. We describe a roadmap towards a fully networked cooperative interaction. We believe that this paper will serve as the basis for our next stages of development, as well as for other similar works in the field of wireless ad hoc networks.
