Wireless sensor networks offer a wealth of capabilities for interfacing the physical world with applications in environmental, industrial, and medical domains. A typical wireless sensor network is expected to work without human intervention for a long time period. Hence, energy efficiency is of paramount importance in wireless sensor networks in order to achieve maximum network lifetime. Due to the energy constraints of sensor devices, communication protocols and hardware architectures for wireless sensor networks necessitate an energy-aware design to ensure the longevity of the network. While most wireless sensor networks use battery-operated computing and sensing devices, new technologies such as energy harvesting have gained much attention in the research community recently. In addition, each layer of the communication protocol stack can employ various techniques to conserve energy with consideration of the hardware's capabilities to minimize energy expenditure. WEWSN intends to bring together the researchers working on various topics in wireless sensor networks with relation to energy. It will be held as a one-day workshop in conjunction with DCOSS'09, co-located with several related workshops on special topics in wireless networking, thus providing an ideal venue for researchers to share their ideas and discuss their latest research work.


Authors are invited to submit original, previously unpublished manuscripts that demonstrate current research related to energy in wireless sensor networks. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following featured topics:

   * Architectures and protocols for energy management
   * Energy-aware data gathering and routing protocols
   * Wake-up scheduling algorithms
   * Duty cycle management
   * Data aggregation, conservation, optimization
   * Energy models for analysis and simulation
   * Resource management
   * Energy scavenging, energy harvesting
   * Coverage and connectivity algorithms
   * Cross-layer optimization
   * Energy and bandwidth efficient distributed signal processing
   * Medium access control and topology control
   * Error control protocols and fault-tolerance
   * Traffic management and congestion control
   * Energy-efficient system services (e.g. localization, time synchronization)
   * WSN hardware and operating systems 


We only accept original papers that have neither been published nor submitted for publication elsewhere. Papers must be submitted in PDF format. Submitted papers must conform to the IEEE-Transactions format and should not exceed 8 pages. All submissions will be handled electronically via EasyChair. The use of LaTeX typesetting is highly recommended. It is your responsibility to make sure that the manuscript is free of printing problem. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper must attend the workshop and present the paper.
