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
