Camera ready instructions for accepted papers, posters and demos have been sent to all the authors: if you are one of them and you didn’t receive anything, let us know! Hard deadline: August 30, 2013 September 5, 2013 (extended).

We are excited to announce that the fifth Workshop on Real-World Wireless Sensor will be held at the Como Lake, Italy on 19-20 September 2013.

The purpose of the fifth Workshop on Real-World Wireless Sensor Networks is to bring together researchers and practitioners working in the area of sensor networks, with focus on real-world experiments or deployments of wireless sensor networks. Included are, nonetheless, new forms of sensing such as those that leverage smart phones, Internet of Things, RFIDs, and robots.

When working with real-world experiments or deployments, many new issues arise: the network environment may be composed of a variety of different technologies, leading to very heterogeneous network structures; software development for large scale networks poses new types of problems; prototype networks may differ significantly from the deployed system; actual sensor network deployments may need a complex combination of autonomous and manual configuration. Furthermore, results obtained through simulation are typically not directly applicable to operational networks and it is therefore imperative for the community to produce results from experimental research.

Authors are invited to submit papers (12 pages, Springer LNCS format, 10 point font size) for presentation at the workshop. Papers will be selected based on originality, technical merit, and relevance. Submissions must be fully anonymized, as REALWSN will apply a double-blind review process. Accepted papers will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes on Electrical Engineering series and indexed by all major digital libraries (e.g., ISI, Scopus, Google Scholar, …).
