International Conference on Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN'2012)
Wrocław, Poland, 9 - 12 September, 2012
Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) attract in the last few decades still more and more attention within the scientific community. This is caused partly by the micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) development, partly by the communication techniques progress and partly by the energy-efficient microelectronic programmable circuits expansion.
Present technological progress allows development of different intelligent sensors of various physical parameters. The sensors are small-sized, with low power consumption, with ability of measured variables preprocessing and gained data transmission for further processing. They are capable on the base of internal decision processes to filter data and transmit only suitable information to the appropriate users.
WSN principles are not absolutely new. Localization methods based on the emitted radiation by distributed sensors sensing was already implemented in the past. But only in the last few years typical WSN consisted of the number (from tenths to thousandths) of simple but intelligent sensors with mutual communication availabilities have appeared. The sensors are placed within the monitored area, possibly directly at the monitored object so that the relevant information about the area/object state could be obtained. Large amount of simple, interconnected sensor nodes implementation open new possibilities in the information processing and utilization. Development of the new information processing methods and the new methods of spatially distributed information utilization is an interesting task not only from the theoretical but also from the application point of view.
WSN research space is wide, including new communication systems and new methods of distributed information processing with new technical means, programmatic resources and nontraditional applications development.
Considering mentioned, significant growth of WSN applications integration could be in the next decade expected.
It is therefore necessary to create an experience-sharing platform for scientific researchers and experts from research institutes and WSN occupied companies that employ benefits of this modern technology. Proposed event should be organized within FedCSIS 2012 conference where contribution to the exchange of skills, experiences and new ideas from the WSN problematic within all participants should be expected.
