Measurement Science and Technology Journal (Institute of Physics)
Special Issue on Wireless Sensor Networks: Designing for Real-World Deployment and Deployment Experiences
Extended abstract deadline: 15 March 2010 (by email to firstname.lastname@example.org)
Manuscript submission deadline: 31 March 2010
Expected publication date: December 2010 (available online from November 2010)
Topics of Interest
•Issues with deployment assumptions: setting realistic application requirements; user interaction with the WSN design process and with the end systems; the use of communication channel and sensor and sensing models; experiences with communication protocols, energy management and expected network lifetime; in-network processing; real-time issues in deployed systems; effective information extraction strategies.
•Supporting tools and methods for real-world deployment: deployment and debugging tools; on-the-fly programming, configuration and installation support; management of deployed sensor networks; security, availability and dependability issues in sensor networks; fault-tolerance and troubleshooting sensor networks; network health monitoring and management; practical medium access control protocols; topology control and routing protocols in real-world deployments; practical localization and time synchronization.
•Novel real-life WSN applications: deployment success stories leading to technology adoption; failure stories leading to iterative hw/sw developments and redeployment; novel measurement instruments based on WSNs.
