Wireless Sensor Networks Symposium

by Shaftab Ahmed (Bahria University, Islamabad, Pakistan) and Dr. Mohammad Ilyas (Florida Atlantic University, USA)

The use of wireless sensor networks has become common in recent years due to development of net aware technologies and virtualization of hardware platforms. In such networks geographically dispersed nodes are equipped with wireless sensors, to sample /convert physical data and transmit for other nodes in the network. They include acoustic, seismic, infrared, motion, biomedical and chemical sensors. Wireless sensor networks use short range radio technology to provide ambient intelligence in working environments for various purposes. The sensors regarded as devices for data acquisition have grown into IoT devices equipped with Wi-Fi interfaces. Those are intelligent, capable of performing suitable actions and to support M2M communications. Decisions are based on machine learning components which dynamically update knowledge repository through data collection from relevant events/ responses involving other knowledge-based systems.

The advances in wireless networking has enabled use of wireless adhoc sensor networks for many applications to provide integrated solutions for smart world. Smart environments have embedded applications taking advantage of data collection for use in applications like, Healthcare, Home Automation, Smart Cities and Smart Grids etc. Smart tools use cognitive science and engineering techniques to transform ambient systems into pervasive user-friendly environments. They provide effective and efficient Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) solutions for both healthy and special need/senior citizens to overcome temporary or permanent disabilities.

This symposium is designed to share experiences and ideas on innovative developments in sensor networks. It will begin with two talks covering the fundamentals and the directions of future development, followed by research paper presentations. The duration of the activity is expected to be of 2 hours. The theme talks are as under:

The Symposium topics include:
1- Data Sensing Collection and Dissemination, Sensor Networks and IoT, Using Motes and Arduino modules for automation and AI applications (Shaftab Ahmed, Bahria University, Islamabad)
2- Smart World: Smart Cities, Smart Healthcare, Ambient Assisted Living, and Smart Grids (Dr. Mohammad Ilyas, Florida Atlantic University)

The symposium will feature contributed papers in Wireless Sensor Networks

Graduate students are especially encouraged to submit short papers and present aspects of their work.
