Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are rapidly becoming a technological cornerstone for modern societies. These collections of autonomous and distributed nodes capable of sensing, communication, processing and self-organization continue to earn notoriety as they serve as the backbone of emerging intelligent information-driven paradigms such as the Internet of Things, Vehicular Clouds or Cyber-Physical Systems. Over the last two decades, we have witnessed a plethora of developments related to theoretical innovations in WSNs that touch all aspects of their multi-layered design, from more robust physical layers to more efficient energy conservation and self-organization protocols. The number of published studies reporting successful WSN applications to dissimilar domains is frankly overwhelming.

On the other hand, Computational Intelligence (CI) remains a vibrant research area due to its appealing ability to deal with imprecise, vague and uncertain knowledge. Many of these uncertainty-aware modeling frameworks borrow inspiration from natural and biological processes and have proved quite effective in modeling and solving entangled real-world phenomena. Mimicking intelligent systems such as ant colonies, bird flocks, immune cells, brain structure and other highly parallel and distributed processes has contributed to alleviate the burden imposed by the computational intractability of NP-hard optimization problems and, more recently, the emergence of Big Data.

CI techniques have much to offer to WSN in terms of the realization of periodical yet vital tasks such as sensor node localization, data collection and aggregation, energy-aware routing/broadcasting and sensor relocation. The interplay between both fields of study is growing in vitality and spills over other closely related areas such as bio-inspired computing, robotics and vehicular systems, thus crystalizing the foundations of an exciting multidisciplinary arena. Bio-inspired networking is a recently coined term that attempts to capture the impact of a large subset of CI methodologies to interconnected systems.

While computational intelligence applied to intelligent networking systems in general has received due attention in recently published volumes, we sense there is a need for gathering a representative set of the most recent undertakings having to do with novel theoretical developments and applications of Computational Intelligence to Wireless Sensor Networks. First-class contributions addressing research challenges in these areas and their CI-based solutions (i.e., fuzzy systems, neural networks, evolutionary computation, swarm intelligence, cognitive maps, rough sets, granular computing, and other emerging learning or optimization techniques) are solicited.
