   SCOPE

   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.
