Call For Papers
The International Journal of Distributed Sensor Networks focuses on applied research and applications of sensor networks. A large number of important applications depend on sensor networks interfacing with the real world. These applications include medical, military, manufacturing, transportation, safety and environmental planning systems. Many have been difficult to realize because of problems involved with inputting data from sensors directly in to automated systems. Sensor fusion in the context of distributed sensor networks has emerged as the method of choice for resolving these problems.

This journal also acts as a medium for exchanging ideas and thoughts about impacts of sensor networks research. More importantly the goal of this journal is to provide a forum for the publication of important research contributions in developing high performance computing solutions to problems arising from the complexities of these sensor network systems. Articles highlight advances in uses of sensor network systems for solving computational tasks in manufacturing, engineering and environmental systems.

The topics of interest include but are not limited to:

Architecture, Algorithms and Complexity Issues
Sensor Network Tasking and Self-Organization
Information Fusion Methods and Architectures for Sensor Networks
Detection / Classification Methods
Distributed Sensor Networks - Networking / Caching Issues
Managing Resource Constraints
In-Network Query Processing and Data Storage
Learning Patterns from Sensor Sources
Localization and Synchronization in Sensor Networks
Mobility and Task Coordination
Cooperative Signal Algorithms for Sensor Networks
Performance Evaluation of Sensor Networks
Theoretical Bounds and Optimization of Sensor Networks
Underwater and Underground Sensor Networks
Applications in Biology, Manufacturing, Medical Science and Engineering

Location Based Service (LBS) for various computing paradigms and application scenarios has become increasingly popular in recent years with the proliferation of smart systems (smart city, intelligence transportation system, smart healthcare system, etc.) and smart devices, such as smartphones, unmanned vehicles, robots and so on. It is thought that this will greatly improve the quality of our daily lives through accurate localization, distributed sensing, real time transmission, and cloud based service provision. As the key building block of this near future vision, LBS involves localization, sensing, transmission techniques, especially in indoor and infrastructure less even hostile environments, which are getting more and more attention due to the challenges brought by the absence of infrastructures and security threats at different protocol layers. The attackers can simply emit continuous radio signals to the medium to hinder normal information transmission or launch much sophisticated protocol aware attacks to the positioning process. For the positioning system, it also faces challenges like intruder resilient positioning, location privacy preserving, secure location sharing and verification etc. In fact, different positioning scenarios need different localization accuracy and have different security requirements. Therefore, scenario or application oriented secure positioning technologies are of great concern. The purpose of this special collection is to collate the most innovative approaches and solutions (through research and applications based articles), and place them in the context of the works that have been previously published in the area of security positioning technologies and service for emerging services and computing paradigms. Topics: • Secure Localization Architecture • Secure LBS for IoT • Secure LBS for 5G • Secure LBS for Smart Health Applications • Secure LBS for Ultra Dense Wireless Networks • Secure Localization for WSN • Secure LBS for Robots • Secure Mobile Target Localization • Secure Transmission for LBS • Secure Location Sharing • Secure Location Data Analytics • Secure Location Inference for the Internet • LBSoriented Attacks and Countermeasures • Security- enhanced Distributed Sensing • Security-enhanced Mobile Objects Tracking • Security Enhancement Techniques for Positioning Data Processing • Privacy Preserving LBS • Privacy Preserving Location Sharing • Privacy Preserving Data Analytics • Privacy Preserving LBS for the Internet
