The 2nd International Workshop on Communications and Sensor Networks


The 2nd International Workshop on Communications and Sensor Networks
(ComSense-2014) provides an international forum on the latest technologies
and research in the field of Communications and Sensor Networks.
ComSense-2014 will be held in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada on August
17-20, 2014 in conjunction with The 9th International Conference on Future
Networks and Communications ( <http://cs-conferences.acadiau.ca/fnc-14/>

Workshop Website: https://sites.google.com/site/comsense2014/


Scope of ComSense-2014 covers the fast growing domains in smart
communications embedded in complex systems, for a wide variety of
applications in the forthcoming generation of networks and smart grid
technologies. The day by day increasing popularity and diffusion of
innovative services and applications exploited the raising challenges. These
issues demand to rebuild available technologies to meet the coming needs of
ever growing user base. ComSense-2014 targets to address the current
research results in Wireless Communications and Mobile Networking to present
their methodologies, models, technologies, systems, tools, applications,
work in progress and experiences.

All papers accepted for workshops will be included in the FNC-2014
proceedings, which will be published by Elsevier. The authors must follow
Elsevier guidelines as given in FNC-2014 website
(http://cs-conferences.acadiau.ca/fnc-14/). The number of pages for workshop
papers is limited to 6 pages. Authors should submit their contributions
electronically in PDF format at:

The submission processes will be managed by easychair.org. If you have used
this system before, you can use the same username and password. If this is
your first time using EasyChair, you will need to register for an account by
clicking "I have no EasyChair account" button. Upon completion of
registration, you will get a notification email from the system and you are
ready for submitting your paper. You can upload and re-upload the paper to
the system by the submission due date.

All ComSense-2014 workshop accepted papers will be printed in the conference
proceedings published by Elsevier Science in the open-access Procedia
Computer Science series on-line. Procedia Computer Sciences is hosted on
<http://www.journals.elsevier.com/procedia-computer-science>  and on
