Workshop on
Energy in Wireless Sensor Networks (WEWSN 2009)
In conjuction with DCOSS 2009
Marina Del Rey, California, June 10, 2009

Wireless sensor networks offer a wealth of capabilities for interfacing
the physical world with applications in environmental, industrial, and
medical domains. A typical wireless sensor network is expected to work
without human intervention for a long time period. Hence, energy
efficiency is of paramount importance in wireless sensor networks in
order to achieve maximum network lifetime. Due to the energy constraints
of sensor devices, communication protocols and hardware architectures
for wireless sensor networks necessitate an energy-aware design to
ensure the longevity of the network. While most wireless sensor networks
use battery-operated computing and sensing devices, new technologies
such as energy harvesting have gained much attention in the research
community recently. In addition, each layer of the communication
protocol stack can employ various techniques to conserve energy with
consideration of the hardware's capabilities to minimize energy expenditure.
WEWSN intends to bring together the researchers working on various
topics in wireless sensor networks with relation to energy. It will be
held as a one-day workshop in conjunction with DCOSS'09, co-located with
several related workshops on special topics in wireless networking, thus
providing an ideal venue for researchers to share their ideas and
discuss their latest research work.

Authors are invited to submit original, previously unpublished
manuscripts that demonstrate current research related to energy in
wireless sensor networks. Topics of interest include, but are not
limited to the following featured topics:

   * Architectures and protocols for energy management
   * Energy-aware data gathering and routing protocols
   * Wake-up scheduling algorithms
   * Duty cycle management
   * Data aggregation, conservation, optimization
   * Energy models for analysis and simulation
   * Resource management
   * Energy scavenging, energy harvesting
   * Coverage and connectivity algorithms
   * Cross-layer optimization
   * Energy and bandwidth efficient distributed signal processing
   * Medium access control and topology control
   * Error control protocols and fault-tolerance
   * Traffic management and congestion control
   * Energy-efficient system services (e.g. localization, time synchronization)
   * WSN hardware and operating systems
