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
- Location techniques, routing, medium access control
- Coverage, connectivity, longevity, scheduling, synchronisation
- Network resource management, network protocols, lightweight protocols
- Fault tolerance/diagnostics
- Data storage, query processing, system architectures, operating systems
- In-network processing and aggregation
- Learning of models from data
- Performance analysis
- Sensor tasking and control
- Security, privacy, data integrity
- Modelling of systems/physical environments, simulation tools/environments
The objectives of IJSNet are to establish an effective channel of communication between industry, government agencies, academic and research institutions and persons concerned with related problems in sensor networks. It also aims to promote and coordinate developments in the field of sensor networks.
IJSNet provides a vehicle to help professionals, academics, researchers, developers, working in the field of sensor networks to disseminate information and to learn from each other's work.
IJSNet publishes original papers, short papers, and review papers. Special Issues devoted to important topics in sensor networks will also be published.

Protecting the Internet of Things from botnets is nothing to sniff at
9 February, 2023
The development and deployment of various internet of things (IoT) devices in homes has increased the risks to home networks with such devices inadvertently opening loopholes that could allow fraudsters and others to gain access to the devices themselves, but more worryingly to other devices such as tablet and desktop computers, smartphones, and smart media devices connected to the same home network. The problem is discussed by a team from India in the International Journal of Sensor Networks. N.D. Patel and B.M. Mehtre of the Institute for Development and Research in Banking Technology (IDRBT) and Rajeev Wankar of the University of Hyderabad, India, explain how cybercrime is on the rise and to some degree this is being driven by the advent of the IoT. The team cites the Mirai-BotNet, which infected and took control of many IoT devices and routers, creating a network of robots that can be controlled remotely. Such a botnet of zombie computers and devices can be used to cause problems for other systems, such as distributed denial of service (dDoS) attacks. dDoS attacks in turn can be used to overwhelm a network and its security systems allowing a malicious third party to wheedle their way into the system and steal data or tamper with the systems that depend on the network [...]More details...
