IJSNet proposes and fosters discussion on and dissemination of issues related to research and applications of distributed and wireless/wired sensor and actuator networks. Sensor networks is an interdisciplinary field including many fields such as wireless networks and communications, protocols, distributed algorithms, signal processing, embedded systems, and information management.


 Topics covered include

  • Energy efficiency, energy efficient protocols
  • Applications
  • Location techniques, routing, medium access control
  • Coverage, connectivity, longevity, scheduling, synchronisation
  • Network resource management, network protocols, lightweight protocols
  • Fault tolerance/diagnostics
  • Foundations
  • Data storage, query processing, system architectures, operating systems
  • In-network processing and aggregation
  • Learning of models from data
  • Mobility
  • Performance analysis
  • Sensor tasking and control
  • Security, privacy, data integrity
