3nd International Workshop on Mobility in Wireless Sensor Networks (MOBISENSOR'2012)

in conjunction with the 8th IEEE International Conference on Distributed Computing in Sensor Systems (DCOSS '12)

May 18, 2012 Hangzhou, China



Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) offer unprecedented capabilities for integrating sensing with computing and communication as well as for distributed sensing, coordination and control. While WSNs have been a subject of intensive research for about a decade, most research activities to date focused on sensor nodes typically deployed in static, pre‐determined locations with sensor readings taken at regular intervals and multi‐hopped to a static sink for subsequent storage and analysis. The next evolutionary step for sensor networks is to handle mobility in all its forms. That is, mobility of sinks, mobility of sensors and actuators as well as mobility of code (i.e. applications). The mobility extension represents a more recent research subject in sensor networking; mobility opens up a whole new level of research opportunities and challenges in WSNs, and significantly expands the types of applications for which WSNs can be used. This workshop aims to highlight the benefits and challenges from such a step and outline the state of the art in this particularly promising research area. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

- Sink mobility in Wireless Sensor Networks
- Actuator networks
- Mobile sensor‐actuator networks
- Code mobility in Wireless Sensor Networks
- Mobile agent‐based data aggregation in Wireless Sensor
- Localization techniques in wireless sensor and actuator
- Mobility issues in underwater Wireless Sensor Networks
- Mobility‐assisted communication in Wireless Sensor
- Mobility management in Wireless Sensor Networks
- Connectivity maintenance in Wireless Sensor Networks
with mobile elements
- Mobility for maximizing network lifetime in Wireless
Sensor Networks
- Mobility models for sinks and actuators in Wireless
Sensor Networks
- Routing protocols for handling mobility
- Distributed algorithms and reasoning in Wireless Sensor
Networks with mobile elements
- Data fusion techniques in Wireless Sensor Networks
with mobile elements
- Mobile GeoSensor Networks
- Simulation of Wireless Sensor Networks with mobile
- Applications and deployment experiences

Paper Submissions: March 5, 2012
Notification: March 25, 2012
Final Version: April 12, 2012


This workshop will only accept for review original papers that have not been previously published and are not currently under review elsewhere. Papers should be formatted based on the IEEE Transactions journals and conferences style; maximum allowed camera‐ready paper length is six (6) pages. Submissions must be in Adobe PDF format, including text, figures and references and sent through email to the Program Co‐Chairs (see above). All accepted papers must be presented by a registered author


Besides a hardcopy workshop proceedings volume, workshop papers will be included in the IEEE Digital Library. MobiSensor'2012 chairs are considering several options for setting up a Special Issue in an internationally reputed journal, where extended versions of selected workshop papers will be invited.
