Call For Papers

Recent advances in pervasive sensor techniques, making a plethora of embedded platforms with computation, communication, and sensing capabilities available, have brought rich experiences to end users. A typical instance is the developments in the smart phone. Modern smart phones are equipped with a variety of sensors that can be applied to continuously monitor activities (e.g., behaviors), associated geographical information, and so on. Not only the sensors on frequently used mobile devices, a rapidly growing number of sensors around us (i.e., the physical world) but also makes it simple to gain understanding of users (the real living world of human beings as well). The era of pervasive sensor network has begun, which promises to enhance the awareness of the cyber, physical, and social contexts and thus provide essential supports, in forms of services, applications, and so forth, to our daily lives. In order to realize the full potential of pervasive sensor network (PSN), a diverse range of challenges remain existent and need emerging solutions.

This special issue calls for high-quality and state-of-the-art research issues and results regarding the pervasive sensing techniques and emerging trends. In particular, the special issue is going to showcase the most recent achievements and developments in the realm of pervasive sensor networks.

Original and research articles are solicited in all aspects including theoretical studies, practical applications, new communication technology, and experimental prototypes. All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed and selected on the basis of both their quality and their relevance to the theme of this special issue.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
Algorithmic paradigms, models, and analysis of pervasive sensor networks

Wireless sensor networks and RFID technologies

Security, privacy, fault tolerance, and resiliency

Lightweight auto-configuration and authentication solutions

Participatory sensing, human-centric sensing, and community (social) sensing

Cyber-physical, machine-human, and other cross-connecting systems

Innovative services and applications towards the internet of things

Smart spaces and intelligent environments

Pervasive devices for monitoring and trending

User interfaces and interaction models

Service creation, discovery, management, and delivery mechanisms

Context awareness, energy harvesting, and power management

Real-life experimental platforms, prototypes, and pilot studies

Notes for Intending Authors

Submitted papers should not have been previously published nor be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere.
