Special Issue on Wireless Sensor Networks

Journal of Wireless Communications (JoWC):
Special Issue on Wireless Sensor Networks


Nowadays, Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) perform significant role in vast spectrum of real-world applications ranging from healthcare systems, agriculture, environmental monitoring and entertainment to cyber security and military. Wireless sensor networks provide outstanding opportunities in which large-scale complex problems are solved via distribution of simple, low-power and mutually connected sensors. Due to remarkable outcomes in the area of wireless sensor networks, solving WSN related problems is much needed along with extending the applications of these distributed systems.

This special issue tries to connect researches from both universities and industries not only for extending trends in the area of wireless sensor networks, but also raising new questions for further researches.


Topics include but are not limited to:

-          Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in Wireless Sensor Networks

-          Operating Systems for Wireless Sensor Networks

-          Distributed Systems and Wireless Sensor Networks

-          Security in Wireless Sensor Networks

-          Distribution and Auto-localization
