Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are fast emerging as a new sensing
paradigm based on the collaborative effort of large number of sensors
deployed close to or inside the phenomenon to be observed, and have the
potential of providing diverse services to numerous applications. The
realization of WSNs require intensive technical research efforts
especially in power aware scalable wireless ad hoc communications
protocols due to their unusual application requirements and unique
constraints such as
- WSNs are generally composed of large number of nodes that have limited
  computational and storage capacity.
- In many applications, sensor nodes are expected to be randomly scattered
  in unreachable regions.
- The lifetime of a sensor network is generally limited to the battery
  lifetime of sensor nodes.

SNPA 2003 is intended to provide a forum for researchers to present their
contributions as technical papers related to communication protocols for
WSNs, data management, access, aggregation and fusion techniques, and
sensor network applications. The papers solicited in SNPA 2003 cover a
variety of topics including but not limited to:

- Communication protocols for Wireless Sensor Networks at all layers 
- Novel sensor network applications and services
- Self organizing and scalable sensor network architectures
- Software platforms and tools for sensor network application development
- Energy efficient medium access control, error control, and traffic 
  management protocols
- Energy efficient system services such as localization and time
- Robust distributed algorithms for collaborative processing
- Mechanisms, protocols and algorithms for authenticated, secure
- Application specific network and system services, including data-centric
  routing, attribute based addressing and location management
- Data querying and dissemination
- Data compression, association, aggregation and fusion


The papers should confirm with 
ICC 2003 paper format and can be up to 11 pages long.
Authors should submit a PDF version of their paper to
