Welcome to the Second International Workshop on Software for Sensor Networks (SensorWare) to be held on the 8 January 2007. The workshop is held in conjunction with IEEE/ACM COMSWARE 2007 in the beautiful city of Bangalore, India.
Advances in technology have made deployment of miniature sensors a realistic proposition. These sensors are low-power, inexpensive, smart devices with multiple on-board sensors, and are connected through wireless links, so as to form a collaborative sensor network to perform a specific task. As a result, it opens up a new paradigm of ubiquitous computing and enables a range of applications that are previously unrealizable or too costly to be realized. However, given the limitation of on-board hardware, one of the key areas towards achieving superior performance is through the software implementation. The workshop is intended for the presentation and discussion of novel algorithms and software implementation for sensor networks. This workshop, intends to bring together engineering experts and academicians to discuss the current status, technical challenges, standards, fundamental issues, and future services and applications in the form of panels and technical presentation.
This year, we are proud to announce a best paper award of USD 500!
Please do not hesitate to contact us with regards to matters relating to the workshop.
We look forward to your participation and to seeing you at SensorWare.
