1th International Workshop on Advanced Applications in Wireless Sensor Networks (WAASN??09)
To be held in conjunction with MASS 2009
October 5, 2009, Macau SAR, P.R.C.
With continuous advances in manufacturing low-cost sensors and increasing research efforts on sensor networking, wireless sensor networks have attracted tremendous interests from academy, industry and government. Significant progress has been made in low-power hardware design, operating system, wireless communication, sensor networking, and data management. This has made it more and more practical to develop wireless sensor networks for a wide spectrum of real world applications, ranging from habitat monitoring, security surveillance, and military applications to healthcare applications.
This new workshop will focus on advanced applications in wireless sensor networks, which can serve all sectors of the society. These advanced applications usually require an integrated system solution that covers all aspects of a wireless sensor network, including sensor design, networking, data processing, power conservation and importantly, user interface design.
The purpose of this workshop is to provide researchers, professionals and practitioners with a unique forum for discussing recent progress in sensor network applications and exchanging open questions and new research ideas. New exciting applications of wireless sensor networks are most welcome.
