3rd International Workshop on
July 14 2007, Wroclaw, Poland
held in conjunction with ICALP 2007
GENERAL AND PC CHAIR
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.
