Elsevier's Information Fusion Journal, Special Issue on "Localized 
Algorithms for Information Fusion in Resource-Constrained Networks"


Submission Deadline: February 28, 2010

The Information Fusion Journal (IFJ), an Elsevier publication (JCR 2008: 
2.057), is planning a special issue devoted to Localized Algorithms for 
Information Fusion in Resource-Constrained Networks. Resource-Constrained 
Networks (RCNs) include a wide variety of networks in which resources - such 
as processing, communication, and energy -  are limited. Examples of RCNs 
include ad hoc networks, sensor networks, mobile networks, and pervasive 
systems.  In RCNs, the tradeoff between data quality and resource usage 
(especially energy) is a major concern. In this case, Localized Algorithms 
and Information Fusion are particularly interesting for RCNs, since the 
development of efficient practical solutions and algorithms is possibly the 
most challenging task for such networks. On one hand, Localized Algorithms 
are special distributed algorithms in which only a subset of nodes partakes 
in the network tasks, such as data acquisition, processing, and 
communication. On the other hand, Information Fusion is often used for 
improving the quality of data being transmitted in these networks. Thus, 
Localized Algorithms for Information Fusion must deal with the challenge of 
working with partial views, or incomplete data, to provide accurate results 
at reduced cost.

This special issue will cover a broad range of aspects of Localized 
Algorithms for Information Fusion in RCNs, including ad hoc and mobile 
networks, wireless sensor networks, networked pervasive systems. We seek 
technical papers describing original (previously unpublished in any form or 
forum) ideas, groundbreaking results, and quantified system experiences. We 
especially encourage submissions that highlight practical deployments of 
RCNs, new application domains, and critical surveys of the state-of-the-art. 
Topics of interest for this special issue include, but are not limited to:

- In-network query processing and data storage;
- Localized signal processing;
- Localized estimation, reasoning, and inference;
- Localized information fusion for time synchronization;
- Localized information fusion for location discovery and location-based 
- Localized information fusion for reliability and fault tolerance;
- Localized information fusion for communication protocols at all layers 
(MAC, scheduling, routing, transport, and application);
- Quality-aware resource management using localized information fusion;
- Mobility control and coordination;
- Optimization techniques for localized information fusion in homogeneous 
and heterogeneous RCNs;
- Localized information fusion for data compression and distributed source 

Manuscripts must describe original, completed, and unpublished work not 
currently under review by any other journal, magazine, or conference.

Submission Instructions

Prospective authors should follow the Information Fusion (Elsevier) journal 
manuscript format described at http://www.elsevier.com/locate/inffus. 
Manuscripts should be submitted electronically online at 
http://ees.elsevier.com/inffus. In the submission process, the authors 
should clearly indicate that the submission is to be considered for this 
special issue. Manuscripts must be in single-column format, doublespaced, at 
least 11 pt fonts, and should not exceed 25 pages including figures, tables, 
algorithms, and references. Simultaneously, please also send without fail an 
electronic copy (PDF only), to  the Guest Editor(s) listed below.

Submission Deadline: February 28, 2010
