Algorithmic Methods in Wireless Sensor Network

Call for Papers

We have lately witnessed tremendous development in wireless sensor network (WSN), which makes it possible to monitor the physical environment. WSN is characterized by dense node deployment, unreliable sensor, frequent topology change, and severe power, computation, and memory constraints. These unique characteristics pose considerable challenges on the design of large-scale WSN. The issues include routing, MAC, energy-efficient protocols, and topology control in sensor networks. However, the problems in different scenarios require different analytical model as well as algorithms to achieve optimal performance.

The objective of this special issue is to provide high-quality research to resolve the issues in sensor networks from the algorithmic perspective. Research articles with totally new results or comprehensive review are solicited which will provide a consolidated state of the art in this areas. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Energy management
  • Routing
  • Localization
  • Self-organization, self-management, and self-protection
  • Medium access control
  • Model and performance analysis
  • Data gathering and dissemination
  • Delay-tolerant networks and opportunistic networking
  • Wireless and mobile computing
  • Distributed learning
  • In-network sensing capacity
