Wireless Sensor Networks and Internet of Things (WSN-IOT)

7th IFIP NTMS Workshop on Wireless Sensor Networks and Internet of Things (WSN-IOT)

in conjunction with the

10th IFIP International Conference on New Technologies, Mobility and Security (NTMS)

 

The 7th edition of the NTMS Workshop on Wireless Sensor Networks, will be a one day workshop that will be held in conjunction with the 10th IFIP International Conference on New Technologies, Mobility and Security (NTMS) from 24 to 26 June 2019 in Canary Island – Spain.


After successful event in past years related to the Architectures and Deployments Wireless Sensor Networks, the workshop will cover this year the Internet of Things domain and the workshop name will be NTMS Workshop on Wireless Sensor Networks and Internet of Things (WSN-IoT). Papers published in the WSN-IoT workshop will appear in the proceedings of NTMS 2019 conference.

Wireless Sensor Networks continue to attract a lot of attention from the academia and industry among researchers, industrials, equipment and chip manufacturers and service providers for promoting large-scale deployments in many applications, such as environmental monitoring, military and medical surveillance, health & wellness applications, intelligent traffic management and user’s tracking and identification, including human computer interaction.

In addition, Internet of Things (IoT) is a promising research topic with prosperous industrial trend. In addition to the basic idea of bringing things or objects into the Internet, there are various approaches that are based on WSN. With the advancement in wearable devices industry, the increasing potential of smart homes and environments and the continuous requirement for personalization and context-aware applications, WSNs enter a new technological era and contribute to several new sensing products and applications (e.g. body sensors for medical surveillance, wireless visual sensors for environmental monitoring, WSNs in smart roads for intelligent traffic management and roads safety, wireless sensors in wearable devices, speed and motion sensors in personal devices, light and noise sensors in smart phones and tablets). In parallel, WSN will be used in the wider context of IoT. Thus, new architectures spanning the interactions between cloud services, smart devices and distributed sensors are evolving, which enable new business models and deployments of sensors to enhance user benefit. While continuous improvements are addressing specific WSN issues spanning hardware, new devices, network protocols, WSNs deployment architectures, operating systems, and applications, several research areas are still emerging from new needs and challenges. Integration of low powered WSN sensors into IoT will be a major evolution of WSNs.

To address these issues, WSN-IoT workshop invites unpublished, high-quality contributions that focus on the applications, use-cases, architectures, deployments, and recent advances of Wireless Sensor Networks as well as IoT systems. The workshop is an opportunity for researchers and industrials to share their ideas, experiences, and expectations on the future of WSNs and IoT. The workshop seeks original contributions that address the following topics, but not limited to:

  • WSNs new applications and use-cases including (wearable technologies, visual sensing
    technologies, smart homes and environments, smart roads and context-aware
    applications)
  • Wireless Sensor Networks for the Internet of Things
  • IoT Applications for eHealth, smart cities etc.
  • New architectures for WSNs and IoT
  • WSNs hardware and new devices
  • Low-power wireless technologies
