1st International Symposium on Wireless Sensor Networks for Developing Countries (WSN4DC'13)

02/10/2012 - 12:25am

After the huge success of two consecutive International Multi-topic ICT conferences (IMTIC’08 & IMTIC’12 www.muet.edu.pk/imtic/) held at Mehran University, the 1st International Conference on Wireless Sensor Networks for Developing Countries (WSN4DC ’13) (24th - 26th April, 2013) jointly organized by Mehran University of Engineering & Technology, Jamshoro, Pakistan, Erasmus Mundus, StrongTies program and International Islamic University Malaysia.

With the emergance of electronics and nanotechnology the pervasive and ubiquitious envoronments are becoming reality. The key enabler technology for these environments is Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). We have seen lot of WSN advancement during recent past in military domain. The world is now well aware of the power of WSN and its applications, which are endless. The WSN4DC conference aims to bring together a wide spectrum of international experts to facilitate a creative environment for the promotion of collaboration and knowledge transfer under the domain of WSN usage for Developing Countries (DC). In particular it will facilitate a dialogue between major industry players, entrepreneurs and academia to help create a roadmap for the development of tangible research environment in the developing countries. It is an international forum for researchers to exchange information regarding novel aspects of technology, application and service development within the WSN domain.

The conference program will consist of keynote speakers from both industry and academia and panel discussion. There will be opportunities to attend interactive, high quality, peer reviewed sessions which will provide detailed insights from forward thinkers working in the themes of the conference. Additionally, there will be an exhibition for both international and niche market to display their latest products and services and to undertake a range of networking opportunities.

The proceedings of WSN4DC ’13 conference will be published by Springer (TBD).
Additionally, the extended version of selected papers will be published as especial issue in reputed indexed journals (TBD).
