Recent technological advances allow the construction of so-called sensor nodes -- tiny autonomous devices that combine sensing, computing, and wireless communication capabilities. Networks of these nodes are envisioned to allow monitoring of a wide variety of environmental phenomena with unprecedented quality and scale. Wireless Sensor Networks are therefore expected to substantially promote a variety of application domains that inherently depend on such unobtrusive real-world observations.

Making this vision a reality, however, requires substantial and coordinated research in a variety of disciplines, including computer science, electrical engineering, MEMS technology, and power engineering. The purpose of this workshop is to initiate and promote coordinated research on this multidisciplinary topic within European academia and industry.

The workshop is funded by the European Science Foundation. Participation is by invitation only.
