CALL FOR PAPERS

The availability of a large variety of sensor devices, allows wireless
sensor networks to be exploited in different fields using different
approaches. Applications that rely on continuous, 24x7 monitoring are
critical in the application areas such as the following:

* Healthcare
* Emergency Response
* Security
* Energy
* ICT industries
* Homeland security
* Public safety
* Military

One major challenge faced in these applications is the interaction
between the monitoring system and the human subjects who are part of
the system itself.
The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum to share and discuss
among researchers the different applications and approaches for
continuous, 24x7monitoring using wireless sensor networks. We are
soliciting papers describing original research on both theoretical and
practical aspects of sensor networks for continuous monitoring. We
particularly welcome submissions that present design, implementation
and deployment results that take into account the effort to run the
systems with low or minimum energy consumption.

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

* Energy saving architectures
* Green energy monitoring systems
* Data association
* Continuous authentication
* Middleware and software tools
* Networking architectures and protocols
* Data gathering, aggregation and dissemination
* Topology control
* Power management and energy-efficient design
* Time synchronization
* Location management
* Cross-layer architectures
* Intelligent monitoring
* Decision Support Systems
* Security and dependability issues
* Modeling and performance evaluation
* Estimation and prediction
* Monitoring sensor platforms
* Applications (including, but not limited to, the application areas
listed above)

PAPER SUBMISSION

Papers should contain original work and not be published or currently
submitted for review elsewhere. Manuscripts are limited to 6 pages.
Paper submission will be performed using EasyChair. Please see the
Paper Kit section on the ANT 2012 conference website for more details.

All papers accepted for workshops will be included in the ANT-2012
proceedings, which will be published by Elsevier. The authors must
follow Elsevier guidelines as given in ANT-2012 Website. At least one
author of each accepted paper is required to register and attend the
conference to present the work. Selected outstanding papers presented
at the workshops will, after further revision, be considered for
publication in journals special issues.
