The impact of wireless communication has been and will continue to be profound. The standards that define how wireless communication devices interact are quickly converging and soon will allow the creation of a global wireless networks that will deliver a wide variety of services. Wireless sensor and actor networks (WSAN) is a fast emerging technology for remote distributive monitoring and control that would take advantage of the developments in wireless communication besides other fields like Embedded systems, Semantic web, Smart surroundings etc. Unlike the conventional sensor arrays, conservation of power and wireless channel bandwidth are of utmost importance. These energy and bandwidth constraints present fundamental challenges in developing intelligent, distributive, collaborative, multi-modality networked objects that sense and act in wide-area, and in unattended environments. Early research has explored the concepts, prototypes, devices and applications. It is time to move ahead beyond the models and the prototypes to large sustainable systems. For this we need to have device centric, application centric and technology centric views. The conference tries to capture this spirit and aims to bring researchers and engineers together to share their views, researches and experiences Therefore, keeping in view of the above aspects, technical papers that describe previously unpublished original research and that are not currently under review by another conference or journal, are solicited on the themes suggested below. The themes are suggestive only.

Themes are organised as per the following streams

A. Wireless Sensor Networks, Architectures and Protocols
