Overview: WSN workshop will be a one day workshop that will be held
in conjunction with the IFIP New Technologies & Mobility (NTMS) 2015
Conference in Paris, France. Papers published in the WSN workshop
will appear in the proceedings of NTMS 2015 conference. Accepted and
presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and
submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing
(A&I) databases.

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) continue to attract a lot of
attention from the academia and industry among researchers,
industrials, equipment and chip manufacturers and service providers
for promoting large-scale deployments in many applications, such as
environmental monitoring, military and medical surveillance, health
& wellness applications, intelligent traffic management and user's
tracking and identification, including human computer interaction.
With the advancement in wearable devices industry, the increasing
potential of smart homes and environments and the continuous
requirement for personalization and context-aware applications, WSNs
enter a new technological era and contribute to several new sensing
products and applications (e.g. body sensors for medical
surveillance, wireless visual sensors for environmental monitoring,
WSNs in smart roads for intelligent traffic management and roads
safety, wireless sensors in wearable devices, speed and motion
sensors in personal devices, light and noise sensors in smart phones
and tablets). In parallel, new architectures spanning the
interactions between cloud services, smart devices and distributed
sensors are evolving, which enable new business models and
deployments of sensors to enhance user benefit.

While continuous improvements are addressing specific WSN issues
spanning hardware, new devices, network protocols, WSNs deployment
architectures, operating systems, and applications, several research
areas are still emerging from new needs and challenges. To address
these issues, the NTMS'2014 Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) workshop
invites unpublished, high-quality contributions that focus on the
applications, use-cases, architectures, deployments, and recent
advances of Wireless Sensor Networks. The workshop is an opportunity
for researchers and industrials to share their ideas, experiences,
and expectations on the future of WSNs. The workshop seeks original
contributions that address the following topics, but not limited to:

- WSNs new applications and use-cases including (wearable
technologies, visual sensing technologies, smart homes and
environments, smart roads and context-aware applications)
- New architectures for WSNs
- WSNs hardware and new devices
- Low-power wireless technologies
- WSNs new protocols
- Routing and data transfer in WSNs
- Multicast communication in WSNs
- Security management in WSNs
- Power consumption optimization in WSNs
- Prototypes for new applications for WSNs
- Platforms and developments tools for WSNs
- Programming models for sensors
- Languages and operating systems of Sensors
- Multi-purpose WSNs
- WSNs trends on data gathering, processing, and communication
- Distributed smart cameras/smart camera networks

Papers are to be submitted electronically on the EDAS web site of
the conference in PDF format.

Submissions should be original and limited to 5 double-column pages,
and should follow IEEE paper templates. Paper with more pages can be
accepted however they need to be reduced to 5 pages for publication.

Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference
proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other
Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.

Submission process
Your paper must be printable in order to be accepted. The paper's
cover page must include the following information:
Title of paper.
Authors' names and affiliations.
Contact author's name and address (both postal and electronic).
A short abstract.
In order to submit, you must first create an EDAS account. The EDAS
system will e-mail you your password. Then you can login to EDAS
using the password you have received by email. EDAS will provide you
with a submissions homepage where you can register your paper
submission and make appropriate changes.

How to use EDAS to submit your paper:
Create an account in the EDAS system at
Login to EDAS using your username and password (sent via email).
