Aims and Scope

The International Journal of Distributed Sensor Networks focuses on applied research and applications of sensor networks. A large number of important applications depend on sensor networks interfacing with the real world. These applications include medical, military, manufacturing, transportation, safety and environmental planning systems. Many have been difficult to realize because of problems involved with inputting data from sensors directly in to automated systems. Sensor fusion in the context of distributed sensor networks has emerged as the method of choice for resolving these problems.

This journal also acts as a medium for exchanging ideas and thoughts about impacts of sensor networks research. More importantly the goal of this journal is to provide a forum for the publication of important research contributions in developing high performance computing solutions to problems arising from the complexities of these sensor network systems. Articles highlight advances in uses of sensor network systems for solving computational tasks in manufacturing, engineering and environmental systems.

The topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Architecture, Algorithms and Complexity Issues
  • Sensor Network Tasking and Self-Organization
  • Information Fusion Methods and Architectures for Sensor Networks
  • Detection / Classification Methods
  • Distributed Sensor Networks - Networking / Caching Issues
  • Managing Resource Constraints
  • In-Network Query Processing and Data Storage
  • Learning Patterns from Sensor Sources
  • Localization and Synchronization in Sensor Networks
  • Mobility and Task Coordination
  • Cooperative Signal Algorithms for Sensor Networks
  • Performance Evaluation of Sensor Networks
  • Theoretical Bounds and Optimization of Sensor Networks
  • Underwater and Underground Sensor Networks
  • Applications in Biology, Manufacturing, Medical Science and Engineering
