Call For Papers

First International Workshop on Autonomous and Automated Sensor Networks, AASN

Summary and topics
Thanks to technological advances, wired and wireless sensor networks are attracting an increasing attention that promotes their large-scale deployments in many applications, such as environmental monitoring, military surveillance, and scientific exploration. Continuous improvements are motivating works in addressing specific sensor network issues spanning hardware, network protocols, architecture, operating systems, and applications. Furthermore, emergent needs to fulfill a variety of heterogeneous requirements are highlighting the importance of multidisciplinary networks that control their processing and manage their resources by means of self-organizing techniques. These techniques particularly require sharing the decision-making process over hundreds of low-power, short lifetimes sensors. The achievement of this goal is still facing an urgent and challenging question on how to provide these spatially distributed sensors with reasonable autonomy that help them in performing the right action, at the right time for the sake of fulfilling current requirements while increasing the lifetime of the entire sensor network and guaranteeing reliable and enduring pathway communications. Automating the sensor network activities is also an urgent and challenging issue especially that commonly sensing devices are operating unattended in remote and hostile areas where manual maintenance is nearly impossible. Since predefined and late decisions do not help much in improving the efficiency of networked sensing devices, automation and autonomy are very important mechanisms in addressing upcoming developments that target multi-services, collaborating, or competing sensor networks. To reach these goals, the first International Workshop on Automated and Autonomous Sensor Networks is seeking novel ideas in the following topics that include, but not limited to:

Heterogeneous sensor networks
Multi-service sensor networks
Sensor network control
Automated sensing activities
Competing sensors or sensor networks
Collaborating sensors and sensor networks
Semantic-based management of sensor networks
Resource management in sensor networks
Context awareness in sensor networks
Self-organization and self-adaptation in sensor networks
New architectures and protocols for sensor networks
New sensor network applications
Sensor network maintenance
Intelligent sensors and sensor networks
Data management in sensor networks
Data and resource sharing in sensor networks
