                          Special Session on Service-Oriented Wireless Ad Hoc 
                                             and Sensor Networks

Wireless ad hoc and sensor networks are expected to play an important role in the future wireless generation due to their flexibility, adaptability, and self-organization features. The recent significant advances in almost all research areas related to these networks have enabled a wide spectrum of applications, including collaborative computing, disaster recovery, inter-vehicle communications, mobile access to Internet, surveillance and monitoring, intelligent agriculture, habitat monitoring, automation and control, intelligent home, etc. 

Service-oriented computing is gaining popularity in today's business environments by providing flexibility to seamlessly compose multiple distributed service components into different applications, processes, and more complex services. Though service-oriented computing has been well studied in wired networks, it remains a nascent area of research in wireless ad hoc and sensor networks. The frequent mobility, the limited computation/storage capability, and battery power in wireless ad hoc and sensor networks require more innovative service composition, advertisement, discovery, and invocation mechanisms to migrate service-oriented computing to wireless ad hoc and sensor networks. 

The aim of this special session is to foster interactions among researchers from industry and academia on all aspects of service-oriented wireless ad hoc and sensor networks. 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Service-oriented advertisement model
  • Service-oriented query model
  • Service-oriented data processing, storage, and management schemes
  • Service-driven routing protocols
  • Service composition mechanisms
  • Service discovery protocols
  • Service-oriented mobility and data management
  • Service-oriented cross layer approaches
  • Detection, classification, estimation, and tracking schemes
  • Efficient deployment and localization schemes
  • Energy-efficient network architectures
  • Energy and time efficient data delivery and data fusion schemes
  • Fault-tolerance and security issues
  • Modeling and simulation
  • Software platforms and middleware design
  • Tools and techniques for design, deployment, evaluation, and testing
  • Multimedia and novel applications and services
  • Data mining and warehousing
