2014 International Workshop on Wireless Sensor Networks for Industrial Applications (WSNIA-2014)
To be held in conjunction with the FNC-2014 August 17-20, 2014, Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.

Workshop website:

Over the recent decade, wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have enabled numerous applications in different domains. With the advancement of embedded systems, sensing technology, and standardization efforts, the WSN-enabled solutions to different kinds of industrial applications have attracted growing attention. These applications include environmental sensing, home/building automation, industrial condition/process monitoring, etc. Moreover, there are many WSN-enabled industrial applications inspired by the new concepts, such as Industrial Internet of Things, Smart Manufacturing, Industry 4.0, and Smart Grid. The broad spectrum of WSN-enabled industrial applications involves many interdisciplinary research topics and research challenges which are yet to be solved. These challenges, for example, generally include timeliness, security, reliability, scalability, and quality of service.

This workshop aims at bringing researchers together working in a variety of the subjects raised by the WSN-enabled industrial applications. Research papers are welcome from communities at the fringe of industrial WSNs. Papers submitted to the workshop will be reviewed and assessed by the program committee.

Topics of interest include but not limited to:
- Industrial WSN test-beds, applications, and data analytics in different areas
- Industrial Internet of Things and Smart Manufacturing applications
- Standards-based industrial WSNs (e.g., WirelessHART, ISA100.11a, ZigBee, 6LoWPAN, etc.)
- Fault-tolerant industrial WSNs and diagnostics
- Wireless communication techniques and protocols
- Energy harvesting and low-power solutions
- Embedded systems software/hardware
- System middleware and software services
- Quality of service and performance evaluation
- Real-time control and monitoring theories
- Real-time applications for enterprise asset management, inventory management, shop floor interactions, field service automation, fleet management, etc.
- System integration into industrial networks in different levels (e.g., field device level, automation system level, network level, etc.)

Submission Guidelines:

All papers accepted for the WSNIA-2014 workshop will be included in the FNC-2014 proceedings, which will be published by Elsevier. The authors must follow Elsevier guidelines as given in FNC-2014 website ( The number of pages for workshop papers is limited to 6 pages. Authors are requested to submit their papers electronically in PDF format by the deadline at
