Call For Papers

Second International Workshop on Automated and Autonomous Sensor Networks, AASN

To be held in conjunction with The International ACM Conference on Management of Emergent Digital EcoSystems (MEDES 2009)
Lyon - France, October 27-30, 2009.

Summary and Topics:

Thanks to technological advances, wired and wireless sensor networks are attracting an increasing attention that promotes their
large-scale deployments in many applications, such as environmental monitoring, military surveillance, and scientific exploration.
Continuous improvements are motivating works in addressing specific sensor network issues spanning hardware, network protocols,
architecture, operating systems, and applications. Furthermore, emergent needs to fulfill a variety of heterogeneous requirements
are highlighting the importance of multidisciplinary networks that control their processing and manage their resources by means of
self-organizing techniques. These techniques particularly require sharing the decision-making process over hundreds of low-power,
short lifetimes sensors. The achievement of this goal is still facing an urgent and challenging question on how to provide these
spatially distributed sensors with reasonable autonomy that help them in performing the right action, at the right time for the
sake of fulfilling current requirements while increasing the lifetime of the entire sensor network and guaranteeing reliable and
enduring pathway communications. Automating the sensor network activities is also an urgent and challenging issue especially that
commonly sensing devices are operating unattended in remote and hostile areas where manual maintenance is nearly impossible.
Since predefined and late decisions do not help much in improving the efficiency of networked sensing devices, automation and autonomy
are very important mechanisms in addressing upcoming developments that target multi-services, collaborating, or competing sensor networks.
To reach these goals, the second International Workshop on Automated and Autonomous Sensor Networks is seeking novel ideas in the
following topics that include, but not limited to:

- Heterogeneous sensor networks
- Multi-service sensor networks
- Sensor network control
- Automated sensing activities
- Competing sensors or sensor networks
- Collaborating sensors and sensor networks
- Semantic-based management of sensor networks
- Resource management in sensor networks
- Context awareness in sensor networks
- Self-organization and self-adaptation in sensor networks
- New architectures and protocols for sensor networks
- Sensor network maintenance
- Intelligent sensors and sensor networks
- Data management in sensor networks
- Data and resource sharing in sensor networks
- Quality of Service in sensor networks
- Sustainable sensor networks
- Decision Support Systems for Sensor Networks
- Virtual Environment for Supporting Sensor Networks
- Sensor Networks on the Web
- Sensor networks for a sustainable development
- Autonomous/Intelligent social sensor networks
- Autonomous/Intelligent sensor networks for supporting social networks
- Sensor networks for an autonomous/intelligent management of spatial resources
- Sensor networks for an autonomous/intelligent risk management
- New sensor network applications
