1st International Conference on
Sensor Networks Applications, Experimentation and Logistics


September 24-25, 2009, Athens, Greece

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are envisioned to enable a variety of
applications including environmental monitoring, building and plant
automation, homeland security and healthcare. It has been argued that one of
the key characteristics of sensor networks is that they are so tightly
coupled with the applications running on top of them. Although WSNs have
been an active area of research for over a decade, real world sensor network
deployments have not yet found their way to widespread adoption. The
experience gained and lessons learned during the initial attempts to deploy
WSNs and implement various sensor network applications are very valuable for
the advancement of this technology.

The 1st ICST International Conference on Sensor Networks Applications,
Experimentation and Logistics (SENSAPPEAL 2009) aims at bringing together
researchers and developers from academia and industry to present their work
and share their experiences with developing, deploying and testing WSN
applications. Moreover key enablers to WSN application development (such as
OS, middleware, in-field reprogramming, testbeds and simulators, etc.) fall
within the scope of the conference.

Authors are invited to submit original unpublished work, not currently under
review by another conference, workshop or journal. Full papers should be
restricted to 20 camera-ready pages in the Springer "Lecture Notes of the
Institute for Computer Sciences, Social-Informatics and Telecommunications
Engineering (LNICST)" format. We also welcome submissions for demonstrations
of pilot, experimental or real-life deployments, testbeds, simulators and
applications of wireless sensor networks.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Sensor network applications:

* Environmental Monitoring
* - wildfire detection and tracking
* - landslide prediction
* - pollution monitoring
* - habitat monitoring
* - seismic monitoring
* Physical security and surveillance
* Health care and assisted living
* Building and plant automation
* Disaster area or area of operations information gathering
* Other novel applications

Application enablers:

* APIs, programming paradigms and in-field reprogramming techniques (OS,
middleware, mobile agents, sensor DBs, in network processing)
* Testbeds and simulators
* Cognitive and autonomous operation of sensor networks
* Localization and tracking
* Efficient networking protocols
* Network and data security
* Sensing devices
