Call For Papers

IST-AWSN'13 will be held in conjunction with the 4th International
Conference on Ambient Systems, Networks and Technologies (ANT-2013) in
Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, June 25-28, 2013.

Recent developments of low-cost, low-power, multifunctional wireless
sensors and smart devices have enabled the fast growth of Ad-hoc and
Wireless Sensor Network (AWSN) applications. AWSNs consist of numerous
small battery powered nodes. A combination of the dense deployment of
numerous smart sensors, actuators and smart mobiles nodes, AI techniques,
and intelligent agents can provide pervasive services, enabling users to
satisfy their needs anytime anywhere. Different problems rise at different
level from protocol specification and verification, simulation and
performance evaluation to distributed intelligent software specification
and design.

This symposium aims to bring together researchers and practitioners working
on different aspects of ad-hoc and wireless sensor networks and software
agent technology in an effort to highlight the state-of-the-art and discuss
the challenges and opportunities to explore new research directions. We
strongly welcome submissions that include results which advance the state
of the art relating to the theme of the symposium.

The main topics to be addressed include (but not limited to):

- Adaptive agents in AWSN

- Security and trust in AWSNs

- Agent-based architectures and middleware for AWSNs

- Agents design issues dealing with reliability, efficiency, and fault

- Context and situation awareness

- Distributed management systems for AWSNs

- Future Internet of Things

- Intelligent data fusion and aggregation

- Intelligent query and data dissemination

- Intelligent systems for AWSNs

- Simulation Tools and Methods

- M2M communication protocols for sensors networks

- Mobile Peer-to-Peer systems for AWSNs

- Power management and energy-efficient protocols

- QoS, performance evaluation and simulation

- Routing protocols for AWSNs

- Self-organization of AWSNs

- Sensors and actuators infrastructures for ubiquitous robotics

- Knowledge Modeling and reasoning with Uncertainty


Only original papers will be considered that have neither been published
nor submitted for publication elsewhere, including web publication. 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

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.comand 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 proceedings.

Authors of high quality papers presented in the symposium will be invited
to submit extended version of their papers for publication in international
journal special issues.
