Call For Papers

INTRODUCTION:
Issues such as climate change and impacts of human activity on the environment are key points to be taken into account in any decision support system related to agriculture or environment. Large scale data acquisition is a crucial component in the chain of decision-making because used the models should be validated by relatively large amounts of real-world data. Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) technology enables massive collection of real-world data. WSN can collect regular data even in inaccessible areas, such as underground, rivers, and mountains. Moreover environmental data collected via WSN may be used for emergency alert cases, such as flooding, avalanche, and pollution.

OBJECTIVE OF THE SPECIAL ISSUE:
This special issue addresses theoretical and practical approaches to WSN and WSAN taking into account their specificities and constraints (e.g., implementation of WSN or WSAN) for outdoor environment through agricultural and environmental applications. Thus, this special issue provides an opportunity for researchers to contribute and to support sustainable development for preserving the planet.

RECOMMENDED TOPICS:
Topics to be discussed in this special issue include (but are not limited to) the following:

Agriculture and agricultural management
Bio-diversity
Bio-fuel
Climate change
Distributed collaborative information processing
Environmental application tool boxes: environment and tools
Environmental risks management
Forestry, forestation, deforestation
Hardware and software platforms, middleware
Land and water management
Land use, land cover mapping
Mobile ad hoc networks and sensor networks
Modeling, algorithms, and performance evaluation
Quality of Service (QoS) in wireless sensor networks
Sustainability Impacts and indicators
Underground wireless sensor network
Underwater wireless sensor networks


SUBMISSION PROCEDURE:
Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit papers for this special theme issue on Wireless Sensor Networks for Agricultural and Environmental Applications, on or before April 30, 2012. All submissions must be original and may not be under review by another publication. INTERESTED AUTHORS SHOULD CONSULT THE JOURNAL’S GUIDELINES FOR MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSIONS at http://www.igi-global.com/Files/AuthorEditor/guidelinessubmission.pdf. All submitted papers will be reviewed on a double-blind, peer review basis. Papers must follow APA style for reference citations.

All submissions should be should be directed to the attention of:
