This is a reminder that the paper submission deadline is November 10, 2014.



We invite you to contribute to the special session of the Indiacom 2015 conference. Please, find the details below.

Session Title:
Wireless Sensor Networks for sustainable development
>From low layer communications to Software Oriented Architecture

Special Issue at IndiaCom 2015 (

With the recent advances in many fields of technologies, wireless sensor networks have gained in attention and are more and more envisioned for a large set of purposes ranging from environment monitoring to rescue operation ranging from health assistance or factory monitoring. For many of these applications, the use of this new technology allows more energy saving and sustainability.
The main focus of this special session 'Wireless Sensor Networks for sustainable development – From low layer communications to Software Oriented Architecture' in IndiaCom 2015 is to review and assess all the research done in the wireless sensor network area for sustainability.

Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to:
- WSN-based paradigms and architectures for sustainable applications and technologies
- WSN Software oriented architectures
- Tools for developing sustainable WSN applications
- WSN cloud vs distributed computing
- Security and privacy control mechanisms
- Performance assessment and management (QoS, scalability, reliability, etc)
- PHY layer, Spectrum management for energy-efficiency
- MAC protocols (e.g., scheduling, power control etc.) for energy-efficiency
- Mobility management
- Object, device and service management
- Sustainable design and technologies (e.g. energy-efficiency)
- Test-beds and field trials
- Standardization and regulatory issues…
