Smart and Cooperative Sensor Networks

Call for Papers

Sensor networks have drawn significant interest for providing ubiquitous access to information anywhere and anytime. Sensor networks are now being developed by both academia and industries for supporting various applications, including Internet access and industrial, military, health, and home, applications. The designs of sensor networks are application-specific and this made the sensor networks difficult to manage. In addition, it can lead to resource underutilization, in which multiple sensor networks are developed for different applications and numerous vendors are developing multiple sensor networks without sharing common resources. These challenges motivate the tremendous research for developing smart and cooperative sensor networks, which can be flexibly adapted to various applications and easily managed.

This special issue provides a chance for both academic and industry professionals to discuss recent progress in the area of smart and cooperative design for sensor network, including smart and cooperative systems and architecture, new directions, algorithm design, and security issues. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Smart and cooperative architecture for sensor networks
  • Software-defined sensor networks and the application
  • MAC/network layer cooperative communications for sensor networks
  • Privacy and security issues in sensor networks
  • Smart scheduling algorithm design in sensor networks
  • Advanced industrial wireless sensor networks
  • PHY layer enhancements for sensor networks
  • Content-based design in sensor networks
  • Sensor networks and Internet of things
  • Sensor networks and cyber physical systems
  • Simulation platforms, prototypes, test-beds, and field trials of smart and cooperative sensor networks

Before submission, authors should carefully read over the journal’s Author Guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/ijdsn/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/submit/journals/ijdsn/scsn/ according to the following timetable:
