Call for papers


Int. J. of Information and Communication Technology


Special Issue on: "Current and Future Applications for Wireless Sensors Networks"


Guest Editor:

Wireless sensors networks (WSNs) have many applications in modern life. The use of WSNs is affordable for network connectivity and has the ability to be used in delay-tolerant applications, which makes it more efficient for countries with poor infrastructures. WSNs can be deployed in rural/harsh environments in order to collect data which can be stored in the memory of nodes and transmitted. WSNs can also be easily deployed with no loss of investment and expanded when more funds become available.


WSNs allow appropriate user interfaces whereby data collected by sensor nodes can be saved in a central base station and also in the user interfaces that already exist. In fact, web-based interfaces allow users to monitor or control their WSNs through a web browser. With regard to power resilience, WSNs can be designed so they require very little energy to operate.


This special issue will focus on recent research into and applications of WSNs in modern life.


The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the International Conference on Intelligent Information Processing, Security and Advanced Communication (IPAC'2015), but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.
