Call for Papers

With the development of WSNs, more complicated and challenging applications now can be targeted by small and smart systems. Although most of these applications require little power, the gradual degradation of the batteries further decreases the useable lifetime of WSNs. Aside from relying on revolutionary development of battery technologies, one of the most important ways to improve the system lifetime is to “harvest” energy from ambient environmental energy sources. Energy harvesting devices efficiently and effectively capture, accumulate, store, condition and manage this energy and supply it in a form that can be used to perform a helpful task. Researchers need to design practical distributed and centralized algorithms and to introduce novel theoretical models or evaluation methodologies to challenge various kinds of research problems originated from Environmental Energy Harvesting for WSNs. Although there are a large number of developed applications using energy harvesting system power are now practical, there are still many problems lead to considerable challenges in WSNs based on Energy Harvesting. The special issue is intended to encourage high-quality researches in WSNs based on Environmental Energy Harvesting, and push the theoretical and practical research forward for a deeper understanding in the fundamental algorithm, modeling, and analysis techniques of Energy Harvesting. Authors are invited to submit papers presenting new research related to the theory or practice of Energy Harvesting, including algorithms, modeling, technology and application. All submissions must describe original research, not published or currently under review for another workshop, conference, or journal.

The topics suggested can be discussed in terms of concepts, the state of the art, standards, implementations and evaluation, and running experiments or applications. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

- MEMS technologies
- Energy storage and management for WSNs
- Solar/Thermoelectric/Vibration/Biomechanical Energy Harvesting for WSNs
- Simulating and modeling energy harvesting WSNs
- Evaluation of energy harvesting applications and systems
- Standardization of energy harvesting
- Testbed for energy harvesting
- User studies and experiences
- Applications of Energy Harvesting
