*SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES*
Wireless Sensors Networks (WSN) have spurred a considerable amount of
research interest from various disciplines and application domains.  They
have been employed in emerging areas with high potential for societal
impact, and are being used in plethora of healthcare, environmental,
societal, and industrial applications.  The processes of data gathering,
analysis and information fusion need to employ efficient cooperation and
coordination among tasks at different layers and abstractions – while
having the constraint of energy-consumption on mind and, consequently,
prolonging the effective network lifetime and its topology control.

A specific aspect of collaboration in WSN is the one with *mobile and
Ubiquitous systems*.  In many environmental application scenarios,
typically there are much fewer mobile than static nodes, but the mobile
nodes have higher energy reserves, as well as communication range.
Consequently, they can improve the sensing coverage and reliability of
transmission – but they do introduce an extra burden: the management of the
mobile units.  In other application scenarios – e.g., structural
health-monitoring and traffic management – the ratio of mobile units to
static (e.g., on bridges or along road-side) in a certain area is much
higher.  However, in such settings, the mobile entities that have a
collaborative role change much more frequently with time.  Mobile and
wireless systems offer a wide range of applications and services that are
conducive to collaboration, and vice versa.

The International Workshop on Mobile Systems and Sensors Networks for
Collaboration (MSSNC 2014) aims at providing an opportunity for researchers
and practitioners to present their contributions addressing various
challenges in efficient management of the collaborative aspects in wireless
and mobile sensors networks and systems.  MSSNC will be held in conjunction
with the 2014 International Conference on Collaboration Technologies and
Systems (CTS 2014), providing a focused forum for presenting current
results and visions in this important emerging area.

*MSSNC Topics of interest include, but are not limited to**:*

   - Mobile and Sensor Networks Architectures

*PAPER SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS*
You are invited to submit original and unpublished research work on above
and other topics related to sensor networks and mobile systems and
collaboration.  Submitted papers must not have been published or
simultaneously submitted elsewhere.  Submission should include a cover page
with authors' names, affiliation, addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers,
and email addresses.  Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and
include up to 6 keywords from the above list of topics and an abstract of
no more than 400 words.  The full manuscript should be at most 8 pages
using the two-column IEEE format.  Additional pages will be charged
additional fee.  Short papers (up to 4 pages), poster papers and posters
(please refer to  http://cts2014.cisedu.info/home/posters  for the posters
submission details) will also be accepted for submission.  Please include
page numbers on all preliminary submissions to make it easier for reviewers
to provide helpful comments.

Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript via the Workshop EasyChair link
at  https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=mssnc2014.  If the
submission is for a short paper or a poster paper, please indicate that on
the manuscript as well.

Only PDF files will be accepted, submitted via the web link above.
Consistent with the practice of CTS, each paper will receive three
reviews.  Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance,
technical depth and clarity of presentation.  Submission implies the
willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the
paper, if accepted.  Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their
papers will be registered and presented at the workshop.

Accepted papers will be published in the Conference proceedings.
Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on
the CTS 2014 Conference website.  It is our intent to have the proceedings
formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of
the conference.  The proceedings are projected to be included in the IEEE
Digital Library and indexed by major indexing services accordingly.

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