CALL FOR PAPERS

SCOPE

Wireless ad-hoc sensor networks have recently become a very active research subject due to their high potential of providing diverse services to numerous important applications, including remote monitoring and tracking in environmental applications and low maintenance ambient intelligence in everyday life. The effective and efficient realization of such large scale, complex ad-hoc networking environments requires intensive, coordinated technical research and development efforts, especially in power aware, scalable, robust wireless distributed protocols, due to the unusual application requirements and the severe resource constraints of the sensor devices.

On the other hand, a solid foundational background seems necessary for sensor networks to achieve their full potential. It is a challenge for abstract modeling, algorithmic design and analysis to achieve provably efficient, scalable and fault-tolerant realizations of such huge, highly-dynamic, complex, non-conventional networks. Features including the extremely large number of sensor devices in the network, the severe power, computing and memory limitations, their dense, random deployment and frequent failures, pose new interesting abstract modeling, algorithmic design, analysis and implementation challenges of great practical impact.

This Workshop aims to bring together research contributions related to diverse algorithmic and complexity theoretic aspects of wireless sensor networks. This is the third event in the series. ALGOSENSORS 2004 was held in Turku, Finland, ALGOSENSORS 2006 was held in Venice, Italy. Since its beginning ALGOSENSORS is collocated with ICALP.

PROCEEDINGS

Accepted papers will be published in full text in a hardcopy Proceedings by the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) Series of Springer Verlag.
We are going to have post-proceedings i.e. authors will have the opportunity to revise their papers in the light of the discussion at the event and then submit their camera ready files by the end of August.
Pre-proceedings will be available during the workshop for the participants.

TCS JOURNAL SPECIAL ISSUE

Selected high quality papers will be considered for publication in a Special Issue on Algorithmic Aspects of Wireless Sensor Networks of the Theoretical Computer Science (TCS) Journal.

PAPER SUBMISSION

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts reporting original research in the topics related to the workshop. Simultaneous submission to other conferences is not allowed.
Papers should not exceed twelve (12) pages of text using at least 11 point size type, including references, figures, tables, etc, preferably formated in the LNCS style. Additional material may be added at a clearly marked Appendix to be read at the discretion of the Program Committee Members.
Authors must submit their papers electronically via Web page.
All papers will be peer reviewed and comments will be provided to the authors.
Authors need to make sure that for each accepted paper at least one author will attend the workshop.
