Recent developments of low-cost, low-power, multifunctional wireless sensors and smart devices have enabled the fast growth of Ad-hoc and Wireless Sensor Network (AWSN) applications. AWSNs consist of numerous small battery powered nodes. A combination of the dense deployment of numerous smart sensors, actuators and smart mobiles nodes, AI techniques, and intelligent agents can provide pervasive services, enabling users to satisfy their needs anytime anywhere. Different problems rise at different level from protocol specification and verification, simulation and performance evaluation to distributed intelligent software specification and design.
This symposium aims to bring together researchers and practitioners working on different aspects of ad-hoc and wireless sensor networks and software agent technology in an effort to highlight the state-of-the-art and discuss the challenges and opportunities to explore new research directions. We strongly welcome submissions that include results which advance the state of the art relating to the theme of the symposium.Read More
