Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are rapidly becoming a technological
cornerstone for modern societies. These collections of autonomous and
distributed nodes capable of sensing, communication, processing and
self-organization continue to earn notoriety as they serve as the
backbone of emerging intelligent information-driven paradigms such as
the Internet of Things, Vehicular Clouds or Cyber-Physical Systems. Over
the last two decades, we have witnessed a plethora of developments
related to theoretical innovations in WSNs that touch all aspects of
their multi-layered design, from more robust physical layers to more
efficient energy conservation and self-organization protocols. The
number of published studies reporting successful WSN applications to
dissimilar domains is frankly overwhelming.
On the other hand, Computational Intelligence (CI) remains a vibrant
research area due to its appealing ability to deal with imprecise, vague
and uncertain knowledge. Many of these uncertainty-aware modeling
frameworks borrow inspiration from natural and biological processes and
have proved quite effective in modeling and solving entangled real-world
phenomena. Mimicking intelligent systems such as ant colonies, bird
flocks, immune cells, brain structure and other highly parallel and
distributed processes has contributed to alleviate the burden imposed by
the computational intractability of NP-hard optimization problems and,
more recently, the emergence of Big Data.
CI techniques have much to offer to WSN in terms of the realization of
periodical yet vital tasks such as sensor node localization, data
collection and aggregation, energy-aware routing/broadcasting and sensor
relocation. The interplay between both fields of study is growing in
vitality and spills over other closely related areas such as
bio-inspired computing, robotics and vehicular systems, thus
crystalizing the foundations of an exciting multidisciplinary arena.
Bio-inspired networking is a recently coined term that attempts to
capture the impact of a large subset of CI methodologies to
interconnected systems.
While computational intelligence applied to intelligent networking
systems in general has received due attention in recently published
volumes, we sense there is a need for gathering a representative set of
the most recent undertakings having to do with novel theoretical
developments and applications of Computational Intelligence to Wireless
Sensor Networks. First-class contributions addressing research
challenges in these areas and their CI-based solutions (i.e., fuzzy
systems, neural networks, evolutionary computation, swarm intelligence,
cognitive maps, rough sets, granular computing, and other emerging
learning or optimization techniques) are solicited.
