2nd International Workshop on Algorithmic Aspects of Wireless Sensor Networks

July 15 2006, Venice, Italy

Sotiris Nikoletseas, U. of Patras and C.T.I., Greece.

Jose Rolim, U. of Geneva,Switzerland


Wireless ad-hoc sensor networks have recently become a very active research subject due to their high potential of providing diverse services to numerous important applications, including remote monitoring and tracking in environmental applications and low maintenance ambient intelligence in everyday life. The effective and efficient realization of such large scale, complex ad-hoc networking environments requires intensive, coordinated technical research and development efforts, especially in power aware, scalable, robust wireless distributed protocols, due to the unusual application requirements and the severe resource constraints of the sensor devices.

On the other hand, a solid foundational background seems necessary for sensor networks to achieve their full potential. It is a challenge for abstract modelling, algorithmic design and analysis to achieve provably efficient, scalable and fault-tolerant realizations of such huge, highly-dynamic, complex, non-conventional networks. Features including the extremely large number of sensor devices in the network, the severe power, computating and memory limitations, their dense, random deployment and frequent failures, pose new interesting abstract modeling, algorithmic design, analysis and implementation challenges.

This Workshop aims to bring together research contributions related to diverse algorithmic aspects of wireless sensor networks. This is the second event in the series. ALGOSENSORS 2004 was held in Turku, Finland, in colocation with ICALP 2004.
