SN 2013 : The Sixth International Workshop on Sensor Networks
Conference Series : Sensor Networks
Call For Papers
The Sixth International Workshop on Sensor Networks (SN 2013)
in conjunction with ICCCN 2013, July 30 - August 2, 2013, Nassau, Bahama
As computing is gradually integrated with every aspect of our lives and activities, sensing technology is becoming pervasive. Sensing devices integrated with networking and computing components can provide continuous inputs from monitoring their surroundings and even internals. Actuating devices can also be integrated and become new output devices. The advancing of sensing and networking technology has created enormous opportunity for developing new computer systems and applications of societal importance. Thus, it is not a surprise that sensor networks have attracted many researchers and practitioners in recent years. Nevertheless, we believe the sensor networking and their systems and applications have become a significant force that will reshape the landscape of computing.
We are motivated to set up a forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange ideas in development of sensor networks and their applications. The Sixth International Workshop on Sensor Networks (SN 2013) will be held in conjunction with the International Conference on Computer Communication Networks (ICCCN 2013).
The workshop welcomes researchers, practitioners, and students to join us in the workshop. The areas of interests include but are not limited to the following:
- Media access control
- Topology discovery and management
- Network and battery lifetime
- Network coverage and connectivity
- Network scalability
- Security and privacy
- Quality of service
- Mobility management
- Robustness, faculty-tolerance, self-healing, and reliability
- Two-dimensional and three-dimensional sensor deployment
- Integration of wireless sensor networks and the Internet
- Modeling and simulation
- Sensor network testbed design and development
- Data transportation, aggregation, and visualization
- Network monitoring
- MAC, PHY, routing, and applications of Underwater/Acoustic sensor networks
- MAC, PHY, routing, and applications of Body sensor networks
- Accepted and presented papers will be included in IEEEXplore Digital Library and indexed by EI
- Extended versions of selected best papers will be recommended for possible publication in the International Journal of Sensor Networks (IJSNet), an SCI-indexed journal.

Instructions for Authors:
Submitted manuscripts must be formatted in standard IEEE camera-ready format (double-column, 10-pt font) and must be submitted via EDAS (http://edas.info/) as PDF files (formatted for 8.5x11-inch paper). The manuscripts should be no longer than 5 pages. One additional page is permitted if the authors are willing to pay an over-length charge at the time of publication (manuscripts should not exceed 6 pages). Submitted papers cannot have been previously published in or be under consideration for publication in another journal or conference. The workshop Program Committee reserves the right to not review papers that either exceed the length specification or have been submitted or published elsewhere. Submissions must include a title, abstract, keywords, author(s) and affiliation(s) with postal and e-mail address(es). A paper abstract must be registered on EDAS by the deadline.
Review and Publication of Manuscripts:
Submitted papers will be reviewed by the workshop Program Committee and judged on originality, technical correctness, relevance, and quality of presentation. An accepted paper must be presented at the ICCCN 2013 venue by one of the authors registered at the full registration rate. Each workshop registration covers up to two workshop papers by an author. Accepted and registered papers will be published in proceedings that will be available through Xplore. Papers that are not presented at the ICCCN 2013 venue by one of the registered co-authors will not appear in Xplore.
