Special Session on Collaborative Wireless Sensor Networks (CWSN)

Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is an emerging technology widely adopted in various applications such home and industrial automation, environmental monitoring, health care, agriculture, sport, etc. WSN is a network of tiny and battery-powered sensor nodes deployed in the environments in order to not only sense and report, but also collaborate in order to fulfill the overall system’s goal. Collaboration is one of most important properties of the sensor network and this ability turns the whole system to be smart or intelligent.

The aim of this special session according to one of the session organisers, Reza Abrishambaf is to address the current and the new developments of collaborative wireless sensor networks in the context of industrial automation, habitat monitoring, home automation, agriculture, etc. Currently, there are a large number of researches going on and this motivates us to organize this special session to provide researchers the opportunity of gathering and sharing their latest knowledge with other researchers and scientific communities within the PRO-VE’16.

Submission procedure

Papers accepted for this session are included in the main conference and follow the same reviewing process.

  • Short abstracts submission (1-page maximum): 20 March 2016
  • Full papers submission: 17 April, 2016
  • Acceptance Notice: 22 May 2016
  • Camera Ready Submission: 31 May 2016

Acceptance of papers is based on the full paper (up to 8 pages). Each paper will be evaluated by three members of the International Program Committee. However, prospective authors should submit a short abstract in advance, in order to check if the proposed topic fits within the conference scope.

When submitting on the web site, you have to indicate the name of the special session.

Submission on: www.pro-ve.org, with copy by email to the chairs of the special session.
