SensorFusion'09 is the Third International Workshop on Information Fusion and
Dissemination in Wireless Sensor Networks, which is organized in conjunction with
the Sixth Annual International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Systems:
Computing, Networking and Services,


The convergence of the Internet, wireless communications, and information processing
technologies with techniques for miniaturization has opened up new vistas of research
for sensor networks. Emerging technologies for sensing and pervasive computing have
placed sensor networks at the threshold of a period of major growth. It has extended
information fusion and dissemination in sensor networks from data aggregation, association
and monitoring of interactions among hardware and software entities in ubiquitous computing
environments to intelligent information processing for the next generation wireless internet.
For the emerging hybrid sensor networks, information fusion can help in the seamless
integration of smart sensors and actuators, devices and capabilities, software and hardware
agents, sensor network applications and sensor nodes, distributed and collaborative
algorithms, different communication technologies, different networking architectures, etc.,
all over wireless or wire-line backbones.

The aim of this workshop is to provide a focal point for recent advances in this
foundational area of information fusion and dissemination for sensor networks across
different paradigms, disciplines and technologies.


Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- Programmable architectures and infrastructures
- Scalable, adaptive, self-organizing and self-healing architectures
- Multi-sensor, multi-source information networking architectures
- Intelligent, autonomous, seamless, pervasive, multi-sensor information processing
- Information fusion and dissemination in mesh networks
- Data collection, compression/decompression and mining
- Distributed database processing in sensor networks
- In-network processing, aggregation and data association
- Protocol development for information fusion
- Cross Layer Protocol design using Information Fusion
- Energy and mobility management algorithms
- Node localization in sensor networks
- Information Fusion for Resource Allocation
- Quality of Service in sensor networks
- Integration of fusion and learning in sensor networks
- Integration of software and hardware agents
- Service discovery, creation and provisioning
- Authentication and secure communication and data fusion
- Integrated test-beds, experiments, algorithms and measurements
- Real-world sensor applications addressing information fusion
