Subject and Purpose of the Workshop
We lately witness a tremendous development in the wireless sensor networking (WSN), which make it possible to monitor, unobtrusively and for long periods
of time the physical environment and to collect the relevant data. For many applications, the sensor networks cannot operate in complete isolation.
There must be a way enabling a monitoring entity or some end-users to gain access to the data produced by the sensor network, and even to interact with a
particular sensor mote to activate/deactivate it, read the sensed value instantaneously, fix some inner parameters, make dynamic code loading into the
mote, etc. By connecting the sensor network to an existing network infrastructure such as a local-area network, a private intranet, mobile smart networks,
and notably the global internet, gaining remote access to the sensor network would be straightforward. However, many questions need answers, and many
challenges must be tackled before such interconnection become effective. Suitability of IP standards must be investigated, as well as the connection
architecture. Is it more effective to use fixed gateways? Or is it better to employ a dynamic ad hoc mode where all nodes (or several nodes) cooperatively
and alternatively act as gateways. By openly connect a sensor network to other networks new vulnerabilities will take place. An intruder would not need to
gain physical access to the network anymore, but it might remotely launch attacks. Security is thus a very important aspect that must be considered.
Routing, QoS, and interoperability are also important and challenging issues in the new heterogeneous systems. This workshop is a forum for researchers,
academics, and industrials to debate the different issues related to the interconnection of wireless sensor networks, and discuss relevant theoretical
and practical solutions.

Topics of the workshop consist of all aspects related to WSN., with more focus on the interconnection and integration of WSN to other networks.
They include but not limited to:
- Interconnection architecture aspects
- Authentication and security issues
- Vulnerability, protection, and fault-tolerance of WSN
- Quality of Service (QoS) issues in WSN-based integrated networks
- Integration of Body area networks to WLAN and beyond
- Information processing
- Transport Layer protocols, and congestion control issues.
- Routing protocols for cross networks
- Medium access control protocols
- Network and transport layer protocols for cross networks
- Testbeds for integrated networks
- Middlewares
- Integrated applications and services for cross networks
- Sensor tasking, control, and actuation
- Distributed query processing
- In-network processing and aggregation
- Connectivity & longevity
- Location and time services
- Integration of sensor networks and web-based services.

Submission guideline and policy
Submitted papers must represent original material that is not currently under review in any other conference or journal, and has not been previously
published. Papers are restricted to a maximum length of 6 pages, including text, figures, and references. All papers will be reviewed. Accepted and
registered papers will appear in the conference proceedings. At least one author of accepted papers is required to register and attend the workshop to
present the paper.
Papers should be submitted by E-mail to the workshop co-chairs at the address:, and CC to:,, with “IWSN paper submission” as subject. Papers should be prepared using the standard IEEE camera-ready template, and
submitted in pdf format.

Important dates
Paper submission deadline: April 24, 2010
