Call For Papers

To be held in conjunction with The 8th IEEE International Conference on Distributed Computing in Sensor Systems (DCOSS'12).
May 18-20, Hangzhou, China.


Wireless sensor and actor networks (WSANs) are the confluence point
where the traditional fields of wireless sensor networks (WSNs),
robot networks and control theory meet. In WSAN, nodes collaborate
to accomplish distributed sensing and actuation tasks. Leveraged by
the control and mobility of actors, the networking process and
applications embrace a whole new set of possibilities. Actors may
deploy, repair and relocate sensors to improve coverage, build routes
and fix network partition to ensure data communication, change network
topology to shape routing patterns and balance energy consumption,
and respond to reported events in a timely and effective manner.
The benefits are limited only by imagination. As an emerging field,
WSANs are in need of new networking techniques, by which they can fully
exploit their particularities and potentials. WiSARN aims to bring
together state-of-the-art contributions on the design, specification
and implementation of architectures, algorithms and protocols for
current and future applications of WSAN. Original, unpublished

contributions are solicited in ALL aspects of WSANs, WSNs, robot

networks, and robotics and automation. Possible topics include,

but are not limited to:
* Autonomous sensor networks
* Emergent behavior in WSAN
* Modeling and simulation of WSAN
* WSAN architectural and operational models
* Autonomic and self-organizing coordination and communication
* Sensor-actor (robot) and actor-actor coordination
* Energy-efficient and real-time communication protocols
* Bandwidth-efficient and delay-tolerant communication protocols
* Distributed control and management in WSAN
* Neighborhood discovery and mobility management
* Communication protocols for swarms of mobile actors (robots)
* Map exploration and pattern formation of mobile robots
* Actor (robot) task assignment
* Biologically inspired communication
* Ecological systems
* Architectures and topology control
* Localization in WSAN
* Probabilistic integration in WSAN
* Quality of service, security and robustness issues
* Applications and prototypes
* Hybrid networks and wireless Internet
* Data management, gathering, aggregation and query processing


Papers must not exceed 6 single-spaced and two-column pages using
at least 10 point size type on 8.5 x 11 inches pages, and must be
formatted in strict accordance with the IEEE author guidelines.
Submissions are being considered with the understanding that they
describe original research, neither published nor under review
elsewhere. Accepted papers will be published in the IEEE Digital
Library after the conference and included in DCOSS 2012 proceedings.
Selected best papers will be invited to a special issue of
Ad Hoc & Sensor Wireless Networks: an international journal (SCIE).
