Call for Papers for the Special Issue of the Pervasive and Mobile Computing Journal on "Recent Developments in Cognitive Radio Sensor Networks"

Wireless sensor nodes in traditional Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) use
fixed spectrum assignment policy and their performance is limited due to
limited processing and communication power. In addition, these wireless
sensor nodes require high bandwidth and their QoS requirements are
application specific. Wireless sensor nodes with cognitive radio capabilities
(i.e., Cognitive Radio Sensor Networks (CRSNs)), can help to address these
challenges. However, there are several challenges and research problems
which are needed to be addressed in CRSNs.

In fact, cognitive radio sensor network evolved from
Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) in order to optimize the
bandwidth and Quality-of-Service (QoS) requirements of wireless sensor nodes.
Furthermore, CRSNs improve the spectrum utilization, and multiple overlaid
sensor networks can be deployed in a specific region. But due to
inherent hardware and energy limitation of sensor nodes, the realization of
incorporating CR capability in sensor nodes imposes challenges. On top of that,
CRSN nodes must handle additional challenges incurred by CR functionalities
such as spectrum sensing, spectrum sharing, and spectrum management.

In this special issue, we are seeking new and unpublished work in the
domain of Cognitive Radio Sensor Networks. More specifically, this
special issue will focus on recent developments in Cognitive Radio Sensor
Networks (CRSNs).

The list of topics includes, but is not limited to:

- Spectrum sensing techniques for Cognitive Radio Sensor Networks (CRSNs)
- Spectrum management for CRSNs
- MAC protocols for CRSNs
- Innovative and cross-layer middleware solutions for CRSNs
- Applications of CRSNs (smart grids, vehicular networks, etc)
- Delay-sensitive and multimedia communication in CRSNs
- Simulation models for CRSNs
- Energy efficiency in CRSNs
- CRSN architecture: peculiar features and evolution
- Deployment strategies of CRSNs
- Wireless Body Area Networks in the context of CRSNs
- Layers in CRSNs (physical, datalink, network, transport, application)
- Developments, issues, and open areas
- Coverage and Connectivity of CRSNs
- Resource Management in CRSNs
- CRSN integration with traditional networking solutions and standards
- Future perspective for CRSNs

Expected Publication of the Special Issue: 2015

All submissions have to be prepared according to the Guide for Authors as
published in the Journal website at
Authors should select “SI: CRSNs”, from the “Choose Article Type” pull-down
menu during the submission process. All contributions must not have been
previously published or be under consideration for publication elsewhere.
A submission based on one or more papers that appeared
elsewhere has to comprise major value-added extensions over what appeared
previously (at least 30% new material). Authors are requested to attach to the
submitted paper their relevant, previously published articles and
a summary document explaining the enhancements made in the journal version.
