First International Conference on
Integrated Internet Ad hoc and Sensor Networks
InterSense 2006
(Nice, France, May 30-31, 2006)

Call for Participation

The InterSense 2006 conference seeks to provide an opportunity for researchers from computer science, engineering and mathematical backgrounds to disseminate and exchange knowledge in the rapidly emerging field of future heterogeneous supernetworks where ad hoc and sensor wireless networks will be integrated into wired and/or wireless fixed infrastructure. The integration of ad hoc and sensor networks with the Internet and wireless infrastructure networks increases the network capacity, coverage area and application domain. In the future interconnection framework for wireless sensor and ad hoc networks, internetworking is not simply a way to transport information from and to remote hosts. The foreseen degree of integration reaches the upper levels of the stack, where one network will offer services to others (including communication services). In the ‘sensors to wideband’ integrated heterogeneous architecture, even sensor networks component may be heterogeneous, consisting of sensors with varied functionalities and capabilities. This architecture may include an ad hoc network of actors, capable of monitoring the sensor network deployment and acting to increase the network utility. In the emerging area of ubiquitous computing, networked small embedded devices with sensing capabilities will play a key role. Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) shows a great potential for identification of static and mobile objects and poses numerous questions regarding their implementation, capability, performance, reliability and integration with other technologies.

The conference will comprehensively cover physical, data link, network and transport layers, as well as application, security, simulation and power management issues in integrated and heterogeneous networks, including sensor, local area, satellite, vehicular, personal, and mobile ad hoc networks.
