Tremendous technological advances have been made in the development of
low-cost sensor devices equipped with wireless network interfaces. The
design of large-scale sensor networks interconnecting several hundred
to a few thousand sensor nodes has attracted recent research
attention. The sensors monitor various types of information such as
temperature, pressure, chemicals, etc. and/or transmit voice and video
data.  Such sensor networks may be used for applications spanning
several domains including military, medical, industrial, and home
networks. Some of the key challenges deal with scalability of network
protocols to large number of nodes, design of simple and efficient
protocols for different network operations, design of power-conserving
protocols, design of security mechanisms and protocols, design of data
handling techniques including data querying, data mining, data fusion
and data dissemination, and development of exciting new applications
that exploit the potential of wireless sensor networks.

The objective of this workshop is to provide a forum for researchers
and technologists to present their contributions as technical papers
related to wireless sensor networks.  The issues and challenges for
the development of wireless sensor networks not only encompass a broad
spectrum of research topics but also involves a way to envision the
evolution of a new breed of multi-disciplinary wireless network


Papers are solicited in all research and applied areas related to
wireless sensor networks, which include but are not limited to:

   * Self-Organizing Network Architectures

   * Routing and medium access control protocols 

   * Power-aware protocol design

   * Low-power sensor design

   * Applications of sensor networks

   * Mechanisms, protocols and algorithms for Network Security

   * Data Compression and Data Fusion

   * Localization techniques

   * Data Querying and Data Dissemination

   * Collaborative Signal Processing
   * Quality-of-Service

   * Operating system issues


All paper submissions will be handled electronically. Authors should
prepare a PostScript or Portable Document Format (PDF) version of
their paper. No other format will be accepted.  Instructions for
submission are available at http://wsna02.cs.uga.edu.

Papers must meet the following restrictions:

-  The paper must be original material that has not been previously
   published nor is currently under review by another conference or journal.

-  Papers should be no longer than *12 pages* (two column is
   acceptable), in font no smaller than 10 points. (Note that ACCEPTED
   papers, when formatted for the proceedings, may not exceed *10 pages*
   in font no smaller than 9 points).

-  The paper should fit properly on US Letter-sized paper (8.5x11 inches)

-  PostScript version 2 or later, or Portable Document Format (PDF)

-  Use only Computer Modern or standard Adobe printer fonts (i.e., Courier,
   Times, Roman, or Helvetica)

-  Other fonts may be used, but must be included in the PostScript/PDF file

-  The paper must be formatted for b/w printers and not color printers.

All contributions will be refereed by the Program Committee. Accepted
papers will be available as part of the proceedings, at the workshop.

                              IMPORTANT DATES

   * Submissions due: June 1, 2002
   * Notification of acceptance: July 26, 2002
