Call For Papers


Sensors and sensor networks have unprecedented capabilities of building smart systems through sensing and monitoring applications, which provide tremendous benefits to the society.  Wired as well as wireless sensors and  sensor networks are active research topics in recent years due to their potential uses in diverse areas such as enhanced homeland security, conservation of natural resources, improved manufacturing productivity, improved emergency response, efficient energy utilization, food safety, automation of transportation systems, automatic environment and structure monitoring. Advances in sensors, sensor technologies and systems will help wide adaptation of sensors in all areas of our daily life.

ASTSA-2012 will serve as a forum for researchers from academia, government, industries, professionals, standard developers, policy makers, students and practitioners to exchange ideas, present new results and provide future visions of the impact sensors will have in our life.

Original technical papers on the advances in sensor technologies, systems and applications, as well as those that describe practical deployment and implementation experiences are solicited for presentation and publication.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

- Network topologies and architectures for sensor networks
- Network protocols for sensor networks
- Distributed sensor networks
- Adaptive sensor networks
- Sensor networks and cloud computing
- Sensor networks for cognitive radio systems
- Sensor network for vehicular ad hoc networks
