The SNA-2009 conference will feature contributed as well as invited papers concerned with practice and applications. The conference also includes a Best Paper Award given for a paper presented at the conference. Papers will be accepted into chaired presentation sessions. The topics will include, but not limited to, the following areas:

On Sensor Network theories, models, and protocols: There have been deep research activities on sensor network theories and models. Their goal is to enable a sensor data query from hundreds of (even more) tiny, resource-constrained sensors. Interesting topics include:

Information acquisition from sensor networks, Data fusion / aggregation from sensor networks, Network protocols and self-organization, Congestion control and traffic models, Mobile sensor and actor networks, Underwater/acoustic sensor networks. Security, Reliability, Fault-tolerance in sensor networks, Other research on theories, models and protocols.

On Sensor Network Applications: Sensor networks are envisioned to enable a series of applications such as environmental surveillance, healthcare, plant/building automation, homeland security, multimedia acquisition, and so on. Although sensor networks have been in active research for many years, realistic deployments have not yet seen widely adoption. The lessons and experiences from sensor network testbeds and real-world applications could greatly advance this technology. Topics of interests on applications include:

Healthcare /patient monitoring /body sensor networks, Environmental monitoring, Chemical / gas leak detection, Pollution /air quality monitoring, Building automation / visitors' guiding system, Plant / farm monitoring, Disaster recovery, Vehicle automation, other novel applications.

Instructions for Authors

Papers will be accepted ONLY BY ELECTRONIC SUBMISSION in PDF format.
