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 (FNC-2014).

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
