Heterogeneous Wireless Networks (HWISE) , supported by recent technological advances in low power wireless communications along with silicon integration of various functionalities such as sensing, communications, intelligence and actuations are emerging as a critically important disruptive computer class based on a new platform, networking structure and interface that enable novel, low cost, high volume applications such as nuclear, biological and chemical attack detection and protection, home automation, battlefield surveillance and environmental monitoring. Several of such applications have been difficult to realize because of problems involved with inputting data from sensors directly in to actor systems. To fulfill their large range of applications sensor and actor networks will collaborate with other wired and wireless systems including WLANs, Cellular network and grid systems. The research community is working to develop high performance computing solutions to problems arising from the complexities of these sensor and actor network systems. We encourage contributions describing innovative work on HWISE. The topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Applications of HWISE: in all areas of human interests including biology, manufacturing, medical science, engineering, defence
  • Scalable Architectures: Common Architectures vs. vertical integrations, interfaces among layers, which layer in common
  • Communication protocols:protocols at all layers, crosslayer design, communication among heterogeneous technologies, resource constrain issues
  • Security: solutions for heterogeneous environments, tradeoffs between security and performance
  • Information processing: querying, data compression, association, aggregation
  • QoS solutions: applications, technical, business and administrative issues
  • Interoperability: among Sensor networks, WLANs, cellular, satellite and wired networks, mobility issues, integration sensor-actor
  • Operating systems: programming tools, resource contrain issues.
  • Simulations, experimental studies, and testbeds: novel type of nodes, scalability, radio communications with heterogeneous nodes, measurements metrics and loads, testing methodologies
  • Management: planning, configuration, alarms and their correlation, measurements
