The availability of a large variety of sensor devices, allows wireless sensor networks to be exploited in different fields using different approaches. Applications that rely on continuous, 24x7 monitoring are critical in the application areas such as the following:

  • Healthcare
  • Emergency Response
  • Security
  • Energy
  • Unmanned vehicles
  • Homeland security
  • Public safety
  • Military
One major challenge faced in these applications is the interaction between the monitoring system and the human subjects who are part of the system itself.

The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum to share and discuss among researchers the different applications and approaches for continuous, 24x7monitoring using wireless sensor networks. We are soliciting papers describing original research on both theoretical and practical aspects of sensor networks for continuous monitoring. We particularly welcome submissions that present design, implementation and deployment results that take into account the effort to run the systems with low or minimum energy consumption.

Particular topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Energy saving architectures
  • Green energy monitoring systems
  • Data association
  • Continuous authentication
  • Middleware and software tools
  • Networking architectures and protocols
  • Data gathering, aggregation and dissemination
  • Topology control
  • Power management and energy-efficient design
  • Time synchronization
  • Location management
  • Cross-layer architectures
  • Intelligent monitoring
  • Decision Support Systems
  • Security and dependability issues
  • Modeling and performance evaluation
  • Estimation and prediction
  • Social behavior analysis
  • Social signal processing
  • Action and gesture recognition
  • Mobile (smartphones, tablets, etc.) systems
  • Monitoring sensor platforms
  • Applications (including, but not limited to, the application areas listed above)

Papers should contain original work and not be published or currently submitted for review elsewhere. Manuscripts are limited to 6 pages. Paper submission will be performed using EasyChair. Please see the Paper Kit section on the ANT 2013 conference website for more details.

ANT 2013 will be held in Halifax Nova Scotia, Canada. Halifax is located on the far eastern coast of Canada and is approximately a 6-hour flight from London, UK and a 2-hour flight from Toronto, Ontario. Halifax is a vibrant and modern city which is home to multiple academic institutions and where visitors can enjoy a variety of activities and entertainment from whale watching to Jazz festivals to world-class cuisine. Halifax is also home to the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic which contains the world largest collection of Titanic artifacts. Nova Scotia is a picturesque province with many National and Provincial parks, and as stated in the Guinness Book of World Records, has the highest tides in the world.

All papers accepted for workshops will be included in the ANT-2013 proceedings, which will be published online by Elsevier Science in the open-access Procedia Computer Science series. Procedia Computer Sciences is hosted on and on Elsevier content platform ScienceDirect , and will be freely available worldwide. All papers in Procedia will also be indexed by Scopus and Engineering Village (Ei). This includes EI Compendex. All accepted papers will also be indexed in DBLP.

The authors must follow Elsevier guidelines as given in ANT-2013 Website. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register and attend the conference to present the work. Selected outstanding papers presented at the workshops will, after further revision, be considered for publication in journals special issues.
