Scope of the Workshop

The 2nd International Workshop on Advances in Wireless Sensor Networks (IWASN 2007) will bring together researchers from academia, industry and government to present and discuss recent work in this emerging field. IWASN draws upon many disciplines including signal and information processing, communication and information theory, networking and protocols, distributed and wireless computing, cooperative computing, array processing, machine learning, embedded systems design and information management.

Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Communications and Signal Processing in WSN, including:

§  Distributed, Collaborative, Arrayed, MIMO, Opportunistic Techniques,

§  Network Coding, Low Power Transceiver Design, Channel Modelling/Estimation.

  • Power Management, Energy Efficiency, Low & Ultra Low Power WSN.
  • Resource Management in WSN
  • Localisation, Tracking and Surveillance
  • Location-Aware WSN and Mobility Issues
  • Power-Aware WSN
  • Physical, Data-Link, Network Layers and Cross-Layer Integration and Optimisation for WSN
  • Topology Control and Coverage
  • Synchronisation Issues in WSN
  • Advanced Scalability Issues
  • Security and Manageability in WSN
  • Experimental and Practical WSN
  • Application-Based WSN

Why should you participate in this workshop?

Wireless Sensor networks have been an active research area in recent years. As more and more practical applications of wireless sensor networks continue to emerge, the advances of sensor networks start to attract new interest. This workshop is an ideal platform to share a vision of where we are heading, interact and strongly advocate an exciting new avenue for researchers and practitioners in the field of communications. Further, the final program would consist of carefully selected - with at least three peer reviews - and high quality submissions with a large emphasis on new ideas rather than incremental contributions to the field. Submissions of shorter versions of full papers that can be submitted to other conferences/journal in the near future are discouraged.

Workshop Registration

Registration for the workshop will be handled through the registration process of Mobiquitous.

How to submit a paper?

Paper submission will be handled electronically by the COCUS Conference Management System. In order to submit a paper you must first create a COCUS account.

  1. Please go to the COCUS website:
  2. Click on “Register”. Once you have an account, login and click on “Submit paper ”.
  3. Scroll down to find “IWASN 2007 - The 2nd International Workshop on Advances in Wireless Sensor Networks”.
  4. Choose the “Submit a paper” link.
  5. Once the paper has been registered, please upload the manuscript by clicking “submit” on the right-hand side.

After the paper has been uploaded successfully, the status of the manuscript will change to "submitted", and you will also receive a confirmation email generated by the system. Questions regarding the submission procedures can be sent to our email address: advances-in-wsn@imperial.ac.uk .

Formatting Guidelines

Authors should prepare an Adobe Acrobat PDF version of their full paper. Papers must be in English and not exceed 8 pages double column in IEEE conference format (US Letter size, 8.5 x 11 inches) including text, figures, tables and references. The font size must be 10 points. Please follow the IEEE conference paper format as given in these templates: MS Word, LaTeX (Unix), or LaTeX (MS Windows). See sample manuscript as a visual aid for formatting and styles.
