CFP IEEE Sensors Journal: Special issue on Advances in Underwater Acoustic Sensor Networks

IEEE Sensors Council

IEEE Sensors Journal Special issue on
Advances in Underwater Acoustic Sensor Networks

Underpinned by technological advances, there is a growing interest in the design, development, and deployment of Underwater Acoustic Sensor Networks (UASNs) for marine applications. Most of these applications require research in novel theoretical models or evaluation methodologies leading to practical distributed and centralized algorithms. Sustained effort in the recent years has resulted in applications now routinely adopted in UASNs, but there are still many problems awaiting a solution. Some examples of unresolved issues are managing the fouling and corrosion of electronics devices, meeting the power requirements and the general problems of maintaining equipment in a remote and harsh environment.
It is intended that this Special Issue will show the state-of-the-art in Underwater Acoustic Sensor Networks. Original research contributions, tutorials and review papers are sought in the areas related to UASNs including:

New underwater sensors/devices/vehicles
Cross-layer design and optimization for UASNs
Ocean currents model and sensor nodes?mobility model for UASNs
Energy-efficient data collection, storage, dissemination and retrieval by UASNs
Network coverage and node placement in UASNs
Security, fault tolerance, and diagnostics of UASNs
Renewable energies in UASNs for marine monitoring
New materials, and packaging for harsh environmental sensing
Environmental monitoring in coastal areas or underwater environment
Autonomous ocean sampling and disaster prevention
Targets tracking and assisted navigation
Tactical Surveillance by UASNs
Underwater hardware/software platforms for acoustic communication and test beds for UASNs
Undersea and offshore exploration
Study cases, implementations and real deployments of UASNs
