Call For Papers

The International workshop on Wireless Communication and
Networking Technologies for Rural Enrichment

The International workshop on Wireless Communication and Networking Technologies for Rural Enrichment (WiTRUE-2011) shall be co-located with the 7th IEEE International Conference on Wireless and Mobile Computing, Networking and Communications (WiMob 2011), on 9th Oct 2011. The WiTRUE 2011 will focus on the various technological solutions being researched and developed across the globe to address rural challenges and identify channels that can directly benefit the rural masses.

The objective of the workshop is to bring together under one roof researchers, academia, administrators, NGO's and other like minded people with a common objective of using tomorrows technologies for today's rural development. There have been several small pockets of technology use for rural development in the areas of agriculture, education, self-help, empowerment etc. The focus of this workshop is to not only to make these innovations reach the rural folks around the globe, but also to provide a platform where new rural development ideas can germinate and grow. Along with highlighting and bringing in focus the various technologies that are already being used on the field for rural benefits, the workshop will also focus on future technological trends to assist rural development. The workshop will hence provide a platform for discussion on basic challenges faced by rural population in the area of health, education, security, earnings and sustainability and the different technological advances being undertaken to address them.

Authors are encouraged to send their papers describing original and unpublished work in the areas which are closely related to Technologies to address potential Rural development challenges. The list of topics includes, but are not restricted to

* Precision agriculture
* Wireless sensor networks
* Cell phone based Sensor Networks
* Agri-Sensor data fusion
* Information dissemination to rural masses
* Signal Processing for rural applications
* Mobile computing
* Mobile phone application
