2nd Smart Sensor Protocols and Algorithms (SSPA2014)

in conjunction with The thirteenth International Conference on Ad-Hoc Networks and Wireless (AdHoc Now-2014)
Benidorm, Spain, June 22-27, 2014.


Smart Sensor protocols and algorithms make use of several methods and techniques (such as machine learning techniques, decision

making techniques, knowledge representation, network optimization, problem solution techniques, and so on), to establish

communication between network devices. They can be used to perceive the network conditions, or the user behavior, in order to

dynamically plan, adapt, decide, take the appropriate actions, and learn from the consequences of their actions. The algorithms

can make use of the information gathered from the protocol in order to sense the environment, plan actions according to the

input, take consciousness of what is happening in the environment, and take the appropriate decisions using a reasoning engine.

Goals such as decide which scenario fits best its end-to-end purpose, or environment prediction, can be achieved with smart

protocols and algorithms. Moreover, they could learn from the past and use this knowledge to improve future decisions.

In this workshop, researchers are encouraged to submit papers focused on the design, development, analysis or optimization of

smart sensor protocols or algorithms at any communication layer. Algorithms and protocols based on artificial intelligence

techniques for network management, network monitoring, quality of service enhancement, performance optimization and network

secure are included in the workshop.

This conference edition once again targets to gather researchers from academia and industrial sectors to present analytical

research, simulations, practical results, position papers addressing the pros and cons of specific proposals, and advances in

sensor protocols and algorithms. The topics suggested by the conference can be discussed in term of concepts, state of the art,

standards, deployments, implementations, running experiments and applications.


Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal,

including, but are not limited to, the following topic areas:

- Reasoning and learning techniques for sensing environment pollution
- Smart route prediction in vehicular sensor networks
- Smart data aggregation in vehicular sensor networks
