*********************** CFP *******************************   Smart Sensor Protocols and Algorithms (SSPA2013)     in conjunction with The 9th International Conference on Mobile Ad-hoc and Sensor Networks (MSN2013)  Dalian, China, December 11-13, 2013.     SCOPE:   Smart Sensor protocols and algorithms make use of several methods and techniques (such as machine learning techniques, decision making techniques, knowledge representation, network optimization, problem solution techniques, and so on), to establish communication between network devices. They can be used to perceive the network conditions, or the user behavior, in order to dynamically plan, adapt, decide, take the appropriate actions, and learn from the consequences of their actions. The algorithms can make use of the information gathered from the protocol in order to sense the environment, plan actions according to the input, take consciousness of what is happening in the environment, and take the appropriate decisions using a reasoning engine. Goals such as decide which scenario fits best its end-to-end purpose, or environment prediction, can be achieved with smart protocols and algorithms. Moreover, they could learn from the past and use this knowledge to improve future decisions.   In this workshop, researchers are encouraged to submit papers focused on the design, development, analysis or optimization of smart sensor protocols or algorithms at any communication layer. Algorithms and protocols based on artificial intelligence techniques for network management, network monitoring, quality of service enhancement, performance optimization and network secure are included in the workshop.   This conference edition once again targets to gather researchers from academia and industrial sectors to present analytical research, simulations, practical results, position papers addressing the pros and cons of specific proposals, and advances in sensor protocols and algorithms. The topics suggested by the conference can be discussed in term of concepts, state of the art, standards, deployments, implementations, running experiments and applications.   TOPICS OF INTEREST:   Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal, including, but are not limited to, the following topic areas:   Reasoning and learning techniques for sensing environment pollution  Smart route prediction in vehicular sensor networks Smart data aggregation in vehicular sensor networks  Smart multimedia network protocols and algorithms for WSNs  Application layer, transport layer and network layer cognitive protocols  Cognitive radio network protocols and algorithms  Automatic protocols and algorithms for environment prediction  Algorithms and protocols to predict data network states  Intelligent synchronization techniques for sensor network protocols and algorithms  Smart sensor protocols and algorithms for e-health Software applications for smart algorithms design and development in WSNs  Dynamic protocols based on the perception of their performance  Smart protocols and algorithms for Smartgrids  Protocols and algorithms focused on building conclusions for taking the appropriate actions  Smart Automatic and self-autonomous WSNs  Artificial intelligence applied in protocols and algorithms for WSNs  Smart security protocols and algorithms in WSNs  Smart cryptographic algorithms for communication in WSNs  Artificial intelligence applied to power efficiency and energy saving protocols and algorithms  Smart routing and switching protocols and algorithms in WSNs  Cognitive protocol and algorithm models for saving communication costs  Any kind of intelligent technique applied to QoS, content delivery, network Monitoring and network mobility management  Smart cooperative protocols and algorithms WSNs  Problem recognition and problem solving protocols for WSNs  Genetic algorithms, fuzzy logic and neural networks applied to WSNs   IMPORTANT DATES:   Submission deadline: 31th of August 2013  Author notification: 12th of October 2013  Camera-ready version: 27th of October  Registration Deadline: 16th of November 2013  Workshop Dates: 11-13th of December 2013   SUBMISSION GUIDELINES:   Authors are invited to submit original and unpublished papers.
