Call For Papers


The IASTED International Conference on
Sensor Networks
~SN 2008~

September 29 �?? October 1, 2008
Crete, Greece

The International Association of Science and Technology for Development (IASTED)

Sensor networks are the focus of a worldwide, multidisciplinary community of scientists and engineers. The possibility of using small and inexpensive sensor nodes to create flexible and robust networks for gathering information is central to this vibrant field. Research is being undertaken to develop new networking methods, efficient power management strategies, and novel sensing and localization technologies. In addition, researchers are working to overcome challenges related to the use of sensor networks in a vast array of application scenarios.

The IASTED International Conference on Sensor Networks (SN 2008) will be a place for these researchers to gather, exchange ideas, and discuss new directions in the area of sensor networks. It will bring together experts in fields such as networking, power management, distributed computation, remote sensing, environmental monitoring, and embedded systems. All papers submitted to this conference will be double-blind reviewed by at least two reviewers. Acceptance will be based primarily on originality and contribution.

SN 2008 will be held in conjunction with the IASTED International Conferences on:
Computers and Advanced Technology in Education (CATE 2008)
Nanotechnology and Applications (NANA 2008).

The largest and southernmost island of Greece, Crete is a metropolis that retains its roots in classical history. Once the heart of Minoan civilization, Crete boasts Knossos, site of the famous Minoan palace, as well as countless tombs and chapels preserved amidst the modern cityscape. A wealth of other historical and cultural sites from Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman eras also beg exploration, while the traditional Greek cafés (kafeneia) highlight the growth of eccentric contemporary culture unique to the island.

Lefka Ori (the White Mountains), Mount Idi and Mount Dikti, stretching to heights of 2500 metres, are part of a magnificent mountain chain that extends from one end of the island to the other, riddled with hundreds of gorges and caves amongst fertile plateaus of olive trees. Travel to Crete�??s interior to experience the local culture, untainted by tourism, or to the southern coast for paradisiacal isolated beaches. One-day sailing trips to the small islands of Gavdos and Hrissi, just off the coast, provide a relaxing escape from the lively city.
