Call For Papers

The First International Workshop on QoS enabled Sensor Networks (QoS2N)
in conjunction with the 11th International Conference on Mobile Data Management (MDM's 10)

May 23 (temporary date), 2010, Kansas City, USA
Submission deadline: February 14, 2010

Data management in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) is challenging, especially with mobile sensor nodes joining or leaving the network at will. Recently it has become increasingly popular to utilize sensor networks for providing various services, e.g., audio/video surveillance, real-time monitoring, etc. Such WSN functionality demands the Quality of Service (QoS) guarantees in terms of delay, jitter, loss, or throughput using intelligent resource reservation schemes, policy-based service provision, etc. Enabling QoS guarantees in large-scale WSNs, while utilizing the network resources in the most efficient way, is critical for the success and life-time of the service-oriented WSNs.

Providing QoS in WSNs involves addressing various technological issues, e.g., inherent limitations of sensors, varying network loads, network congestion, multi-path routing, changing channel capacity as a function of environment, time, and interference from neighbors, mobility and cross-layer design, etc. In addition, the trade-off between predictable network behavior and network lifetime, as well as between policy-based route selection and load distribution need further investigation. Privacy of sensor information is also a concern since multiple sensors share/access a common media. QoS2N workshop aims at providing a platform for discussing the above issues, recent challenges and solutions, and directions for future research on enabling QoS in WSNs. Researchers, professionals and application developers from industry and academia are welcome to exchange ideas, discuss results, and share experience in a broad range of topics related to QoS and sensor networking. Both theoretical and practical experience papers are solicited. Work-in-progress and position papers are welcome.

The topics of interest in the setting of wireless sensor networks include but are not limited to
- Algorithms and protocol to support QoS in wireless sensor networks
- QoS metrics
- QoS routing
- User perceived quality
- Game theoretical model and communication
- QoS schemes at the data link layer and the network layer
- Cross-layer architecture
- Policy-based routing
- Class adaptation schemes
- Admission control, resource allocation and fairness
- Real-time scheduling and planning
- Power management and energy-efficient design
- Networking protocols and architectures
- Image quality in video-surveillance sensor networks
- Provisioning of QoS (bandwidth and delay) in multimedia sensor systems
- Performance modeling and simulation techniques
- Delay tolerant networks and opportunistic networking
- Data Management of RFID system
- Privacy and security

We solicit original unpublished work written in English that is not currently under review at another venue. The submitted long papers should be no more than 6 pages and the short and position papers should be no more than 3 pages. All papers follow IEEE two-column style format and are subject to peer review by at least two experts in the same field. Papers must be saved as PDF files and submitted via . All accepted long papers as well as all short/position papers will be in the IEEE proceedings. At least one author of each accepted paper must attend the workshop for presentation.
