IEEE ICC Workshop on Wireless Sensor Actor and Actuator Networks (WiSAAN)

June 10 -15, 2012, Ottawa, ON, Canada

Call for Papers

In recent years wireless sensor networks have witnessed a paradigm shift from traditional homogeneous to heterogeneous deployments containing a mix of resource constrained sensor nodes and powerful nodes known as actors. The capabilities of actor nodes include enhanced processing ability, powerful wireless transmission, large battery and mobility. Actor nodes can leverage their capabilities to facilitate better coverage, connectivity and energy efficient operation. Such capabilities offer unprecedented opportunities to serve a diverse range of applications. For instance, actors with mobility can be used to mend a partitioned network, set up new routes, facilitate energy efficient data collection and improve sensor coverage. Similarly, the some sensor nodes may also be equipped with actuation capability called actuators that perform actions to change the behaviour of environment or the physical system. Embedding actuation in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) opens a realm of opportunities for Wireless Sensor Actuator Network (WSAN) industrial applications requiring monitoring and control. While significant research progress have been made in networking and communication aspects of WSNs, new design paradigms are required for wireless sensor actor and actuator networks (WiSAANs). In particular new ideas are required to address the challenges resulting from introducing actors and actuators in the network. This workshop aims to bring the state-of-art research contributions in theory, design and implementation of communication protocols for WiSAANs.
Another key objective of this workshop is to bring together researchers from academia and industry to present their work and share their views. We expect the workshop to act as a leading forum for the WSN research community to discuss their ideas on addressing the most current challenges, potential solutions and future developments of WiSAANs. We encourage contributions describing original work in the realm of data collection, architecture, algorithms, communication protocols and implementations of WSANs. Topics of interest include but not limited to:

- Architectural models for WiSAANs

- Algorithms and communication protocols for WiSAANs

- Service model for WiSAANs

- Sensor-actor and sensor-actuator co-ordination

- QoS models for WiSAANs

- Energy efficient protocols for WiSAANs

- Integration of real-time protocols with WiSAAN

- Time modeling and synchronization in WiSAANs

- WiSAAN current and future applications and implementations

- Data processing and management in WiSAANs

- Medium access protocols for WiSAANs

- Routing Protocols for WiSAANs

- Data gathering and data fusion models for improving real-time performance in WiSAANs
