Call for Papers FUZZ-IEEE Special Session "Fuzzy Applications in Wireless Sensor Networks"

Recent technological advances in Communication Information Systems (CIS) and especially in MEMS (Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems) have made the production and deployment of tiny, battery-powered nodes (units) which communicate over wireless links possible. A Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is comprised of such units at varying numbers, where each single unit is connected to one or generally several units. An early deployment aim is to use these sensors in a passive way for indoor applications. These kinds of early nodes had the ability to sense scalar data such as temperature, humidity, pressure, and location of surrounding objects. However, recently available sensor nodes have higher computation capability, higher storage space, and better power solutions with respect to their predecessors and their primary usage area has shifted from indoor to outdoor appli! cations. With these advances, it is nowadays possible to see a sensor network deployed for daily activities such as environmental monitoring, healthcare monitoring, and security systems.

There are abundant situations where one can meet uncertainity in data in the wireless sensor network context. These situations can be shortly stated as node deployment, node clustering, data classification, optimization problems, and so on. The existing uncertainity in data may either result from the use of linguistic variables for data modeling, or may be the result of insufficient or untrusted data. Fuzzy sets and logic enable us to efficiently and flexibly handle uncertainities occuring in this sense. Moreover, the use of fuzzy logic in WSNs bridges the gap between simulations and real-world implementations the simulations are targeting.

Objectives and topics:

This special session aims to offer a systematic overview of fuzzy data processing techniques and provides innovative approaches to handle various uncertainty issues in data processing and analysis in wireless sensor networks by applying fuzzy sets, fuzzy logic, fuzzy systems and other computationally intelligent techniques.

We invite interested authors to submit their original and unpublished work to this special session. The main topics of this special session include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • Fuzzy node clustering in wireless sensor networks,
  • Fuzzy data classification in wireless sensor networks,
  • Data uncertainity handling in wireless sensor networks,
  • Tools and techniques for fuzzy data modeling in WNSs,
  • Application of Genetic Fuzzy Systems for wireless sensor networks,
  • Applying fuzzy logic for decision-making on WSNs,
  • Fuzzy event detection in WSNs,
  • Energy efficient fuzzy logic-based Intelligent WSNs,
  • Uncertain issues in WSNs,
  • Fuzzy decision-making in wireless sensor networks.
