First International Workshop on Advances in Wireless Sensor and Actuator Networks AWSAN'10


to be held in conjunction with:
6th IEEE International Conference on Wireless and Mobile Computing, Networking and Communications - WiMob 2010

Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada, 12th of October 2010

Wireless sensor and actuator networks (WSANs), as a scientific topic, are currently the subject of intensive world-wide research activities. The sensor technology promises multiple applications: from monitoring an environment in dangerous regions or enemy forces in a battlefield to controlling traffic in streets, inventory in storehouses and tracking patients in hospitals. On the one hand, small and cheap sensing devices create possibilities for gathering huge amounts of data in a non-intrusive way. On the other hand, actuators add a new network dimension and capabilities: the whole system can also react to the forthcoming events.

Still, there are crucial questions which are not answered. Could we design a low-cost sensor technology which enables its massive and pervasive application? Could WSANs be really independent and intelligent systems performing their tasks autonomously without any external control?

The goal of this workshop is to gather people from academia and industry and discuss the most emerging issues and future challenges in the area of WSANs.

The topics of the workshop include but are not limited to:

* Low cost, low-complexity, low-price sensor technology
* Collaborative and distributed schemes
* Self-organized networks
* Biologically inspired WSANs
* Localization and positioning algorithms
* Routing and MAC protocols
* Target detection, identification and tracking
* Cross layer issues
* Network coverage, connectivity, topology, deployment of nodes
* Scalability, robustness, energy efficiency issues
* Data aggregation schemes
* Reliability, self-healing and recovery procedures
* Monitoring and surveillance systems
* Security and privacy issues
* Mobile sensor and actuator networks
* Dynamic network topologies
* Sensor networks modelling and simulations
* Prototypes, test-beds and field measurements
* Sensor network applications

Paper submission:

Authors are kindly invited to submit the manuscripts prepared according to IEEE submission guidelines and not exceeding 8 pages (2 more pages are possible with extra charge).
The accepted papers will be included into the WiMob 2010 conference proceedings and will be published in the IEEE digital database.
