Call for Papers The 7th International Workshop on Wireless Sensor, Actuator and Robot Networks (WiSARN 2013-Spring) http://www.site.uottawa.ca/~zhuan045/WiSARN/WiSARN2013.html To be held in conjunction with The 9th IEEE International Conference on Distributed Computing in Sensor Systems (DCOSS'13) May 20-23, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA. 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 Original, unpublished contributions are solicited in ALL aspects of WSANs, WSNs, robot networks, and robotics and automation.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 2013 proceedings. Selected best papers will be invited to a special issue of Ad Hoc & Sensor Wireless Networks: an international journal (SCIE). Important dates Paper submission: March 1, 2013 Author notification: March 30, 2013 Camera ready: April 15, 2013 Workshop date: May 23, 2013 General Chair Ivan Stojmenovic, University of Ottawa, Canada Program Co-Chairs: Shuhui Yang, Purdue University Calumet, USA. Hannes Frey, University of Paderbon, Germany. Publicity Co-Chairs: Liang He, Singapore University of Technology and Design, Singapre. Sandra Sendra, universidad Politecnica de Valencia, Spain. Submission Chair: Rafael Falcon, University of Ottawa, Canada. For further information, please refer to the above WiSARN 2013 website, or contact the program co-chairs.
