The 3rd International Workshop on
Distributed Collaborative Sensors Networks (DCSN 2010)


As part of
The 2010 International Symposium on Collaborative Technologies and Systems (CTS 2010)

Submission Deadline:  January 18, 2010

The 3rd International Workshop on Distributed Collaborative Sensors Networks aims at providing opportunities to present the most recent advances and future challenges in the field of distributed, wireless and mobile communications in sensors networks as they relate to collaboration. 

Wireless Sensors Networks are a significant current technology, attracting considerable research interest from various disciplines.  Indeed, wireless sensor technology is employed in emerging areas with high potential for scientific research, and is used for biomedical, environmental or industrial applications.  These applications generally require intelligent dense environment monitoring which generates important data volumes.  Data collection and analysis need to deal with cooperation and coordination topics in order to prolong network lifetime and to provide useful, synthesized information for automation, decision making and support.  Topology control, by means of clusters or groups, is another applied technique to overcome these challenging problems. 

The 3rd International Workshop on Distributed Collaborative Sensors Networks will focus on the research of developing collaboration infrastructures and solutions in the context of wireless sensors networks, aiming to bring together researchers and practitioners in these fields.  In addition, the workshop will highlight recent innovative research results which will strengthen the formal foundation of this emerging area.  This workshop is to be held as part of the 2010 International Symposium on Collaborative Technologies and Systems (CTS10).

Topics of Interest include (but not limited to):
Solicited topics are welcomed to address roles from the viewpoint of collaboration and include, but are not limited to: SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS
We invite researchers in academia, industry and research institutions to submit papers reporting original and unpublished research work on the above or any other related topics.  Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliations, addresses, fax and phone numbers, and email addresses.  Also include an abstract of no more than 400 words along with a short list of keywords.  Please clearly indicate the corresponding author. 

Please submit an electronic copy of your full draft manuscript (not exceeding 10 pages in IEEE format, single-spaced, double-column, including figures, tables and references).  Electronic submissions will be accepted only in PDF format, sent by email to the organizers.  Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the Symposium's web site later.  Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted.  All accepted papers are required to be presented and will be included in the conference proceedings. 

All submitted papers and posters will be rigorously reviewed by at least three of the technical program committee members and the reviewers they invite.  Papers will be selected based on their originality, timeliness, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation.  Initial selection will be based on full papers. 

The accepted papers will be published in the CTS 2010 proceedings which is expected to be included in the IEEE Digital Library.  Selected papers, after peer reviewed, will be published in a special issue of the International Journal on Information and Communication Technologies ( ).
