SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENDED TO MAY 10 2009
The 2nd International Workshop on Adaptation in Wireless Sensor Networks (AWSN-09)
August 29 - 31, 2009, Vancouver, Canada
Wireless sensor networks (WSN) are networked embedded systems that rely on wireless communication. WSNs are supposed to run long-lived applications. During operation, applications are likely to experience unpredictable environment conditions that require to dynamically change their behavior. With current reprogramming technology, such an adaptation is still an open issue, as it can be achieved either at the expense of significant energy consumption or through software complexity. The challenge is to achieve WSN systems that not only embed intelligence into environments, but also have embedded intelligence for reprogramming themselves after their deployment.
The workshop aims at stimulating researchers and practitioners in embedded and ubiquitous computing, autonomic computing, ad-hoc networking and all other relevant areas to present their ideas and work in progress for advancing the technologies that enable adaptive WSN applications.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Submissions should include an abstract, 5-10 keywords, e-mail address of the corresponding author, and not exceed 6 pages (IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Manuscripts style: two columns, single-spaced), including tables, figures and references, using 10 fonts, and number each page, in PDF or PostScript file.
