Special Issue: The Workshop on Wireless Sensor Network Architecture (April 2007)

Introduction to the Special Issue:

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), that consist of thousands of low-cost sensor nodes, have been used in many promising applications, such as military surveillance, infrastructure protection, scientific exploration and smart environments. Researchers in this area have accumulated a large portfolio of network services and middleware, effectively addressing a wide range of individual research problems. However, because of the limited understanding on how to integrate these components effectively, the sensor network community faces an urgent and challenging question of how to build sensor network systems efficiently. To address the challenge, this special issue of SIGBED Review presents novel ideas on architecture-level services and protocol interfaces, program abstractions, network function decomposition, partitioning and tasking, high-level engineering of sensor network protocols, and IP integration for wide-area sensor networks.

We would like to thank all of the authors for choosing SIGBED Review as a forum for the communication of their research results. We would also like to thank the SIGBED Review Editors for their coordination.
