Ubiquitous Data-Centric Sensor Networks

Call for Papers

Ubiquitous Data-Centric Sensor Networks (U-DCSN) is a new integrated science and technology, which focuses on data instead of individual sensor nodes. The network, as a dynamic database system, can accurately acquire data, perform high-performance processing of big data, and effectively access data from different users/actuators. Because of this characteristic, U-DCSN holds huge potentials on service improvement in a wide range of applications and has attracted significant attention in recent years, for example, mobile cloud and consumer electronics. The modern mobile cloud, comprising mobile devices (smart phones, tablets, embedded sensor nodes), provides unlimited information resources, bringing a new cloud computing platform that “puts cloud into a pocket”. To satisfy the wide spectrum of composite applications, the dynamic network structure with heterogeneous wireless terminals requiring mobile cloud has efficient and high fault-tolerant data transmitting and processing capability.

To ensure success of the applications under these challenges, many issues in U-DCSN should be deeply research, such as anomaly detection, distributed processing and data correlation mining, smart communication protocols, data security and privacy guarantee technologies. This special issue seeks papers that describe novel research and development in the field of U-DCSN. We invite original contributions on a variety of topics for this Special Issue. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Network architectures and infrastructure control technology over U-DCSN
  • Radio access, self-organization, localization, and synchronization in U-DCSN
  • Multi-QoS communication protocols and Traffic Engineering over U-DCSN
  • Security and privacy transmission technology in U-DCSN
  • Online high-performance distributed processing big data and intelligent correlative data mining in U-DCSN
  • Pattern recognition, data directional access and actuator technologies for U-DCSN
  • Risk/anomaly detection and isolation strategies in U-DCSN
  • Failure resilience and fault-tolerant database management technologies in U-DCSN
  • U-DCSN data transmission and management combining with public network
  • Distributed estimation, optimization, and control over U-DCSN
  • Prototypes, test-beds, field trials, simulation platforms of U-DCSN
  • Innovative emerging applications of U-DCSN
