The 9th International Symposium on Wireless sensor network Technologies and Applications for Smart Space (WTA 2013)
will be held in Jeju, Gwangju, Korea, September 4-6, 2013. Smart Spaces (SS) represents an advanced communication environment
featuring daily-life objects that continuously involve and are focused on final non-expert users. SS has rapidly emerged
as an exciting new paradigm that tends to include different active research fields such as ubiquitous, grid, and P2P
computing. SS environments have recently raised tremendous interests in both the academic and the industrial research
communities as one of the most promising application fields for pervasive computing services.
The WTA 2013 aims to address system and network issues for SS communications. It will solicit both original research papers
and review articles that enhance the state-of-the-art in these fields, including topics like effective context extraction and
representation, context-based service discovery, context-based service composition, integration of legacy systems and services,
security theory, business models, and novel applications that are associated with SS utilization. The papers will be peer reviewed
by at least three independent reviewers and will be selected on the basis of their quality and relevance to the theme of
this conference.
WTA 2013 is the next event in a series of highly successful symposium on wireless sensor network technologies and
applications for SS (WTA), previously held as WTA-12(Jeju, Korea, Nov 2012), WTA-11 (Jeju, Korea, Dec 2010), WTA-10 (Gwangju, Korea, Dec 2010),
SH-10 (Busan, Korea, May 2010), SH-09 (Toronto, Canada, July 2009), SH-08 (Hainan, China, Dec. 2008), SH-07 (Jeju, Korea, Dec. 2007), IWSH-06 (Jeju, Korea, Nov. 2006).

Original contributions, not currently under review to another journal or conference, are solicited in
relevant areas including, but not limited to, the following:

-Architectures, protocols and algorithms of WSN
-Energy, management and control of WSN
-Resource allocation, services, QoS and fault tolerance in WSN
