First International Workshop on Autonomous and Automated Sensor Networks, AASN 

Summary and topics 
Thanks to technological advances, wired and wireless  sensor networks are attracting an increasing attention that promotes their large-scale  deployments in many applications, such as environmental monitoring, military  surveillance, and scientific exploration. Continuous improvements are  motivating works in addressing specific sensor network issues spanning  hardware, network protocols, architecture, operating systems, and applications.  Furthermore, emergent needs to fulfill a variety of heterogeneous requirements  are highlighting the importance of multidisciplinary networks that control  their processing and manage their resources by means of self-organizing  techniques. These techniques particularly require sharing the decision-making  process over hundreds of low-power, short lifetimes sensors. The achievement of  this goal is still facing an urgent and challenging question on how to provide  these spatially distributed sensors with reasonable autonomy that help them in performing  the right action, at the right time for the sake of fulfilling current  requirements while increasing the lifetime of the entire sensor network and  guaranteeing reliable and enduring pathway communications. Automating the  sensor network activities is also an urgent and challenging issue especially  that commonly sensing devices are operating unattended in remote and hostile  areas where manual maintenance is nearly impossible. Since predefined and late  decisions do not help much in improving the efficiency of networked sensing  devices, automation and autonomy are very important mechanisms in addressing  upcoming developments that target multi-services, collaborating, or competing  sensor networks. To reach these goals, the first International Workshop on Automated  and Autonomous Sensor Networks is seeking novel ideas in the following topics  that include, but not limited to:

  Heterogeneous sensor       networks
  Multi-service sensor       networks
  Sensor network control 
  Automated sensing       activities 
  Competing sensors or       sensor networks 
  Collaborating sensors and       sensor networks 
  Semantic-based management       of sensor networks
  Resource management in       sensor networks 
  Context awareness in       sensor networks 
  Self-organization and       self-adaptation in sensor networks 
  New architectures and       protocols for sensor networks
  New sensor network       applications 
  Sensor network maintenance 
  Intelligent sensors and       sensor networks  
  Data management in sensor       networks 
  Data and resource sharing       in sensor networks
