A Special Issue of Ad Hoc Networks Journal on
  Recent Advances in Large Scale and Sustainable Wireless Sensor Networks

The recent advances in embedded software/hardware design have enabled
large-scale and
 cost-effective deployment of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). Such a
network consists
 of many small sensor nodes with sensing, computing, communicating, and control
capabilities. The wireless sensor networks have a broad spectrum
applications ranging
from wild life monitoring, battlefield surveillance, to border control
and disaster
relief, and have attracted significant interests from both academy and industry.
A wireless sensor node generally has limited communication and
computation capabilities,
as well as severely-constrained power supplies, and the networks often
operate in harsh
unattended environments. Successful design and deployment of wireless
sensor networks
 thus call for technology advances and integrations in diverse fields, including
embedded hardware design, data processing, and wireless communications
and networking
across all layers.

One of the key challenges in WSNs is to develop sustainable and scalable system
 that achieves longer network lifetime. Nodes capable of harvesting
environmental energy
 have been designed and used in many WSN systems. The benefits of
using rechargeable
 batteries by harvesting environmental energy to prolong sensor
network lifetime have
 been well recognized.

This special issue aims to summarize the latest development of
hardware and software for
 WSNs, as well as deployment experiences. Topics of interest include
but are not limited to:

?    Novel transport, network, and MAC protocol design
?    Smart in-network processing and control
?    Disruption-tolerant/opportunistic mobile sensor networking
?    Cross layer design and optimization, duty cycle management
?    Channel and network modeling and performance evaluation
?    Measurements and experience from experimental systems and test-beds
?    New and novel methods for harvesting environment energy
?    Hardware design
?    Novel applications and architectures

We solicit original unpublished research papers only. Papers
previously published in
conference/workshop proceedings can be considered, but should be
substantially extended.

Important Dates:

Paper submission: 10-June-2010
Acceptance notification:  10-Sept-2010
Final papers: 10-Oct-2010
Publication: 10-Jan-2011 (adjustable to the editorial calendar)
