Special Issue on: "Awareness in Sensor Networks"

Guest Editors:
Prof. Yi Pan, Georgia State University, USA

The goal of this special issue is to provide an opportunity for researchers, engineers and scientists to publish their latest results related to awareness in sensor networks. Awareness is the ability to be conscious of, feel or perceive, and implies vigilance in observing, or alertness in drawing inferences from what one experiences (Merriam-Webster).

The ultimate goal of aware computing is to create different devices, systems and/or networks that are able to be aware.
