2014 International Workshop on Wireless Sensor Networks for Industrial
Applications (WSNIA-2014)
To be held in conjunction with the FNC-2014 August 17-20, 2014, Niagara
Falls, Ontario, Canada.

Workshop URL: http://www.wsnia2014.com

Over the recent decade, wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have enabled
numerous applications in different domains. With the advancement of
embedded systems, sensing technology, and standardization efforts, the
WSN-enabled solutions to different kinds of industrial applications have
attracted growing attention. These applications include environmental
sensing, home/building automation, industrial condition/process monitoring,
etc. Moreover, there are many WSN-enabled industrial applications inspired
by the new concepts, such as Industrial Internet of Things, Smart
Manufacturing, Industry 4.0, and Smart Grid. The broad spectrum of
WSN-enabled industrial applications involves many interdisciplinary
research topics and research challenges which are yet to be solved. These
challenges, for example, generally include timeliness, security,
reliability, scalability, and quality of service.

This workshop aims at bringing researchers together working in a variety of
the subjects raised by the WSN-enabled industrial applications. Posters and
research papers are welcome from communities at the fringe of industrial
WSNs. Posters and papers submitted to the workshop will be reviewed and
assessed by the program committee.

Topics of interest include but not limited to:
- Industrial WSN test-beds, applications, and data analytics in different
- Industrial Internet of Things, Big Data, and Smart Manufacturing
- Standards-based industrial WSNs (e.g., WirelessHART, ISA100.11a, ZigBee,
6LoWPAN, etc.)
- Fault-tolerant industrial WSNs and diagnostics
- Wireless communication techniques and protocols
- Energy harvesting and low-power solutions
- Embedded systems software/hardware
- System middleware and software services
- Quality of service and performance evaluation
- Real-time control and monitoring theories, cyber-physical systems
- Real-time applications for enterprise asset management, inventory
management, shop floor interactions, field service automation, fleet
management, etc.
- System integration into industrial networks in different levels (e.g.,
field device level, automation system level, network level, etc.)

Poster Submission Guidelines:

Posters showcasing the works-in-progress or applications are welcome to
submit to the WSNIA-2014 workshop. All posters should keep the same format
of a regular paper at least 3 pages following the Elsevier format as
indicated in the submission guidelines in the Call for Papers. Please note
that posters need to register as a regular paper.

Paper Submission Guidelines:

All papers accepted for the WSNIA-2014 workshop 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/#paperSubmissions). The number of
pages for workshop papers is limited to 6 pages. Authors are requested to
submit their papers electronically in PDF format by the deadline 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 WSNIA-2014 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
onwww.Elsevier.com and on Elsevier content platform ScienceDirect (
www.sciencedirect.com), and will be freely available worldwide. All papers
in Procedia will also be indexed by Thomson Reuters' Conference Proceeding
Citation Indexhttp://
thomsonreuters.com/conference-proceedings-citation-index/. 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. All accepted papers will also be
indexed in DBLP (http://dblp.uni-trier.de/).
