   Third International Workshop on
   Algorithmic Aspects of Wireless Sensor Networks

                      A L G O S E N S O R S   2 0 0 7

   July 14, 2006, Wroclaw, Poland
   To be held in conjunction with ICALP 2007.

   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 modeling, 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, computing and memory limitations, their dense, random
   deployment and frequent failures, pose new interesting abstract
   modeling, algorithmic design, analysis and implementation challenges
   of great practical impact.

   This Workshop aims to bring together research contributions related
   to diverse algorithmic and complexity theoretic aspects of wireless
   sensor networks. This is the third event in the series. ALGOSENSORS
   2004 was held in Turku, Finland, ALGOSENSORS 2006 was held in Venice,
   Italy. Since its beginning ALGOSENSORS is collocated with ICALP.

   topics including (but not limited to):

     * Abstract models of sensor networks
     * Methods for ad hoc deployment/topology control
     * Energy management
     * Data propagation and routing
     * Infrastructure discovery
     * Opportunistic Networking / DTN
     * Localization
     * Tracking
     * Data aggregation/data compression
     * Obstacle avoidance
     * Power saving schemes
     * Communication protocols
     * Medium access control
     * Fault tolerance and dependability
     * Security and trust
     * Time synchronization
     * Distributed computing issues

   Accepted papers will be published in full text in a hardcopy
   Proceedings by the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) Series of
   Springer Verlag.

   We are going to have post-proceedings i.e. authors will have the
   opportunity to revise their papers in the light of the discussion at
   the event and then submit their camera ready files by the end of

   Pre-proceedings will be available during the workshop for the


   Selected high quality papers will be considered for publication in
   a Special Issue on Algorithmic Aspects of Wireless Sensor Networks of
   the Theoretical Computer Science (TCS) Journal.



   Authors are invited to submit manuscripts reporting original research
   in the topics related to the workshop. Simultaneous submission to
   other conferences is not allowed.

   Papers should not exceed twelve (12) pages of text using at least 11
   point size type, including references, figures, tables, etc.,
   preferably formated in the LNCS style. Additional material may be
   added at a clearly marked Appendix to be read at the discretion of
   the Program Committee Members.

   Authors must submit their papers electronically via Web page:

   All papers will be peer reviewed and comments will be provided to
   the authors.

   Authors need to make sure that for each accepted paper at least one
   author will attend the workshop.
