Special Session on Sensor Networks, Theory and Applications for
Environmental Issues (SeNTApE'2009)

As part of
The 2009 International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation
(HPCS 2009)

 Leipzig, Germany
June 21 - 24, 2009

Submission Deadline: March 22, 2009

The special session on "Sensor networks, Theory and Applications for Environmental Issues" aims to bring together researchers from many scientific areas. The special session will address recent advances in theory and practice on sensor networks to solve environmental  problems (e. g., in biology, in health sciences, in geography, ...). The main objective is to show how sensor networks can be used in many areas and how they have been deployed.

We encourage original contributions for the following areas and other related topics:

You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other related topics.  Please submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript, not to exceed 7 double-column IEEE formatted pages, and include up to 6  keywords and an abstract of no more than 350 words.  Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews.  At least one of the authors of each accepted paper will have to register and attend the HPCS'09  conference for presenting the paper at the session.  Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings.  Papers should be submitted as email attachments to:  or Your submission will be acknowledged within 48 hours. If accepted, final papers will follow the format that HPCS follows which will be posted on the web site.

If you have any questions about paper submission or the session, please contact the session organizers.
