Call For Papers

Call for papers
Wireless sensor and robot networks (WSRNs) are the confluence point where the traditional fields of wireless sensor networks (WSNs), robot networks and control theory meet. In WSRN, nodes collaborate to accomplish distributed sensing and actuation tasks. Leveraged by the control and mobility of actors, the networking process and applications embrace a whole new set of possibilities. Actors may deploy, repair and relocate sensors to improve coverage, build routes and fix network partition to ensure data communication, change network topology to shape routing patterns and balance energy consumption, and respond to reported events in a timely and effective manner. The benefits are limited only by imagination. As an emerging field, WSRNs are in need of new networking techniques, by which they can fully exploit their particularities and potentials.WiSARN aims to bring together state-of-the-art contributions on the design, specification and implementation of architectures, algorithms and protocols for current and future applications of WSRN.

Author guidelines

It is required that the manuscript follows the standard IEEE camera-ready format (double column, 10-pt font) as well as the requirement set by EDAS paper submission system. The maximum length of ICNC paper without over-length charge is FIVE (5) page. The authors are allowed to pay for up to TWO (2) additional pages at $150 per over length page. Submitted papers may not have been previously published in or under consideration for publication in another journal of conference. The organizing committee of WiSARN reserves the right to not review papers that either exceed the length specification or have been submitted or published elsewhere. Submissions must include title, abstract, keywords, author and affiliation with email address.
During the initial paper submission process via EDAS, the authors are required to make sure the pdf file and EDAS registration page of a paper have the same list of authors and the paper title. Be certain to add all authors in EDAS during the initial paper submission process. Failure to comply with this rule may cause a paper be withdrawn from the review process. Once reviewed the listing of authors connected to the paper can NOT be changed in the final manuscript.
All accepted papers of ICNC (main program and workshops), after being presented onsite at the conference, will be included in the proceedings to be submitted for publication in IEEE Xplore and indexing by EI Compendex.

Submissions should be uploaded using this link: Only electronic submissions are accepted.
