VenuePrague, Czech Republic Czech Republic



Topics/Call fo Papers

A few years ago, the applications of WSN were rather an interesting example than a powerful technology. Nowadays, this technology attracts still more and more scientific audience. Theoretical works from the past, where WSN principles were investigated, grew into attention-grabbing applications practically integrated by this time in a real life. It could be said, that countless application fields, from military to healthcare, are already covered by WSN. Together with this technology expansion, still new and new tasks and interesting problems are arising. Simultaneously, such application actions stimulate the progress of WSN theory that at the same time unlocks new application possibilities. The typical examples are developments within the “Internet-of-Things” field as well as advancements in eHealth domain with WBAN IEEE 802.15.6 standard progress.
Wireless sensor networks, as the spatially distributed networks consisted of a number of relatively simple, low-cost, low-power components interconnected mutually, provide quite wide application portfolio for different branches of economy. As the main examples could be mentioned military, industry, transport, agriculture and healthcare. However, in the near future, even stronger expansion of WSN application assortment is expected. In order to make this expansion possible, it is necessary to continually work on the solving of typical questions/problems related to the WSN development, e.g. standardization of communication protocols; the lack of energy-efficient power sources; the development of new ultra-low-power microelectronic components; etc.
An integration of WSN within the public data networks as well as within the domains where confidential and private data are processed (e.g. E-Health) brings along problems related to the ethical and legal questions too. Therefore, the terms as social safety or ethical safety should not be neglected.
The problematic of WSN is one of actual activities getting to the fore in the European Research Area since the issue of sensor networks was covered through “IoT” in FP7 program and strong continual extension is planned to be included also in Horizon 2020 program, especially in sections such Smart Transport; Health; Climate Action covered under Societal Challenges Pillar.
It is therefore essential to create an experience-sharing platform for scientific researchers and experts from research institutes, SMEs and companies who work in WSN domain where they can exchange some relevant skills and experiences as well as discuss upcoming trends and new ideas from this field. Moreover, the conference should also serve a function of a kind of networking platform facilitating interconnectivity between participants in case of a future collaboration.
