Bioinspired Mechanisms in Wireless Ad Hoc and Sensor Networks

Description

In the current research inclination, hiring of biological solutions to solve and optimize different aspects of artificial systems' problems has been shaped into an important field with the name of bioinspired computing. The ultimate ideological convergence of scientists to this perfect creation of living beings from the one for finding the relevant traces of problems and their solutions is in fact moving to the best. Tough biological systems exhibit complex, intelligent, and organized behavior yet they are comprised of simple elements governed by simple rules. It is highly cost effective to hire the complex and in-networked processing-based simple rules in man-made systems. The real effort that comes in this synergistic solution is in finding the similar patterns of issues in artificial (man-made) and real (natural) creation and later their solutions. This invites the interdisciplinary research which is an essential driver for innovation.

Many complete research fields inspired by the constituents of biological system have been established, which have their key roles in optimizing the solution for various problems in nonbiological systems. Among these, a noticeable increase is observed in the interaction of wireless network devices and physical world in numerous ways at various scales from the global Internet down to micro- and nanodevices. Because of the multifaceted nature of these miniature devices solutions from various domains are hired to ameliorate the overall network performance. Wireless sensor network as one of the most emergent miniature technologies with long list of applications in various fabrics of life has been targeted to resolve various issues and to optimize the performance through the solutions of bioinspired domain.

This special issue aims to emphasize the latest achievements to identify the biological methodologies and their applications to technical solutions in the new research domain of wireless ad hoc and sensor network. The possible papers are likely to exploit connectionism, social behavior, and emergence of biological systems in various problem solving methods in wireless ad hoc and sensor networks. It may also outline essential challenges, proof of the concept studies with direct and simulated comparison to technical solutions, and mathematical models of biological principles in the same domain.

This special issue also encapsulates all the techniques having the direct biological background, that is, animal learning stratagem as well as self-organizing methodologies that are analyzed and observed in molecular biology.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Adaptive, scalable systems protocols
  • Bioinspired network architectures and algorithms
  • Self-learning and self-governing algorithms
  • Self-healing systems and protocols
  • Security mechanisms
  • Communication systems based on self-organizing mechanisms
  • Network protocols and algorithms
  • Energy efficient congestion control techniques
  • Performance evaluation of bioinspired wireless ad hoc and sensor networks
