EmSeNs 2011: Workshop on Emerging Technologies in Sensor Networks held in Conjunction with The 2nd International Conference on Ambient Systems, Networks and Technologies (ANT-2011) Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada, September 19-21, 2011
 
Although wireless sensor networks (WSN) have gained maturity both in experimental and industrial applications over the past decade, new research directions continue to be explored. Many open issues remain. Recently, methods from game theory, computational intelligence, and other fields have been applied to WSN.

The aim of this
Workshop is to bring together researchers from academia and industry to discuss key challenges, and emerging trends and opportunities in all aspects WSN technology. We welcome conceptual work, as well as insights gained from real-world experiments and applications.

Topics of interests include but are not limited to:

Emerging technologies, protocols, applications, algorithms, and implementations for:
  • Cognitive radio for sensor networks
  • Energy optimization
  • Wireless sensor network security
  • Intelligent sensing applications
  • Bayesian network applications in sensor networks
  • Body area sensor networks
  • Underwater sensor networks
  • Multimedia sensor networks
  • Sensor integration techniques
  • Vehicular sensor networks
  • Delay tolerance in sensor networks

Publication:
Only original papers that have neither been published nor submitted for publication elsewhere, including web publication, will be considered. All submissions will be handled electronically. The length of the paper is limited to 6 pages. All papers will be reviewed by at least two independent reviewers.

Accepted papers will be printed in the conference proceedings published by Elsevier Science in the open-access Procedia Computer Science series (on-line and CD). Procedia Computer Sciences is hosted on www.Elsevier.com and on Elsevier content platform ScienceDirect (www.sciencedirect.com), and will be freely available worldwide. All papers in Procedia will also be indexed by Scopus (www.scopus.com) and Engineering Village (Ei) (www.engineeringvillage.com).

This includes EI Compendex (www.ei.org/compendex). The papers will contain linked references, XML versions and citable DOI numbers. You will be able to provide a hyperlink to all delegates and direct your conference website visitors to your proceeding
