[DMANET] Special Issue on "Underwater Sensor Networks" in (JSAN)


Journal of Sensor and Actuator Networks (JSAN)

Special Issue "Underwater Sensor Networks"

Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2014



New advances in information technologies, circuits, systems and communication protocols have made possible the deployment of underwater sensor networks. These issues have lead researchers to propose new underwater sensor nodes, sensor node placement, protocols for their communication, architectures, and study new ways to communicate with higher bandwidth at higher distances. Moreover, the range of underwater applications is growing fast because of the last research in oceanography, marine science and aquiculture, so there is a need of underwater sensor networks in order to support these disciplines.

This special Issue is tries to collect unpublished works on theory and practice on underwater sensor networks, with special interest on real implementations and deployments. We also seek new proposals on wireless communication technologies.

=== KEYWORDS ===

The Special Issue "Underwater Sensor Networks" topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

- Underwater sensor nodes
- Underwater sensor node placement
- Routing protocols for underwater sensor networks
- Underwater communications
- Underwater architectures
- Underwater wireless communications
- Underwater sensor network deployments


Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form ( Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Sensor and Actuator Networks is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page ( before submitting a manuscript. For the first couple of issues the Article Processing Charge (APC) will be waived for well-prepared manuscripts. English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
