Call for papers

Wireless sensor networks and their applications have grown steadily during the past decade as a result of the convergence of various technologies spanning wireless, data processing algorithms, computing hardware, storage, and sensor capabilities. The pervasive nature of static and mobile sensors scattered throughout the environment enables multi-resolution capture of environmental or ambient information that serve as the basis of intelligence for knowledge inference and decision-making. Information processing for sensor networks enable new capabilities to operate autonomously and learn, perceive, reason, and react intelligently to their environments.

Large scale sensor networks are now being used in a number of Earth and Space Science applications, including large-area terrestrial systems for geologic monitoring, volcano/plume monitoring, seismic (earthquake) monitoring, large-scale ocean monitoring for tsunamis, storm surges, plumes, algae blooms, and weather forecasting systems comprised of aerial and ground/coastal nodes. Such Earth and Space sensor networks are now evolving from “passive observation and reporting systems” to “active and reactive systems” that dynamically evolve in response to complex and rapid spatio-temporal events.

This workshop is a forum for scientists and researchers to present new ideas and papers on sensor networks applications in the areas of Earth and Space Science. Papers on all aspects of Earth and Space Applications can be submitted to this workshop. We expect this workshop to have invited papers as well as contributed papers. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
