The convergence of the Internet, communications and information
technologies, coupled with recent engineering advances, is paving the
way for a new generation of inexpensive mobile devices, sensors and
actuators.  It is the distributed and ad hoc deployment of networks of
these network devices and sensors that bears promises for a
significant impact, not only on science and engineering, but equally
importantly on a broad range of applications relating to critical
infrastructure protection and security, health care, the environment,
energy, food safety, production processing, quality of life, and the

This new IEEE Communications Society conference will provide a forum
to exchange ideas, techniques, and applications, discuss best
practices, raise awareness and share experiences among researchers,
practitioners, standard developers and policy makers in the field of
sensor and ad hoc networks and systems. The conference will be
organized to provide for a degree of collegiality and continuity in
the discussions of the various topics among participants from the
industrial, governmental and academic sectors.

Original technical papers, which address the communications,
networking, systems and algorithmic aspects of ad hoc and sensor
networks, as well as those that describe practical deployment and
implementation experiences are solicited for presentation at the
conference and publication in the conference proceedings.  Papers
presenting novel contributions in such disciplines as digital signal
processing, communications, networking protocols and architectures,
algorithms, embedded systems, middleware and information management,
and novel applications are solicited.


Two types of submissions will be accepted for review in this

* FULL papers describing original, previously unpublished research
  work, experimental efforts, practical experiences, and industrial
  and commercial developments in sensor and ad hoc communications and
  networks.  Papers with a deep focus on a specific discipline or
  stimulated by the synergistic interaction of diverse disciplines are

* SHORT papers focusing on future research directions, industry
  challenges and novel approaches in the field of sensor and ad hoc
  communications and networks. Papers in this category must be
  visionary, innovative and forward- looking.

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

* New architectures, protocols and access control to support
  communication, localization, time synchronization, routing and data
  dissemination in heterogeneous, large-scale distributed, ad hoc
  networks and sensor networks

* Novel algorithms and theories for management, supervisory control
  and monitoring of distributed ad hoc networks, and techniques for
  the interpretation and use of sensor data in decision-making

* Industrial and commercial developments and applications

* Modeling and performance evaluation of large-scale distributed and
  ad hoc sensor networks, practical implementations, and real-work

* Theories and models on fundamental information and communication
  aspects of wireless ad hoc and sensor networks

* Mechanisms for authenticated, secure communication and data
  dissemination in sensor and ad hoc networks

* Integration of sensors into engineered systems, including novel
  techniques for sensor renewable power sources, mechanisms for
  on-sensor self- calibration and self-testing and efficient schemes
  to maximize accuracy and minimize false alarms

* Chip-based systems incorporating multiple sensors, computation,
  actuation, and wireless interfaces

* Software platforms, middleware and tools for ad hoc and sensor
  network applications development, deployment and management


  Proposals for tutorials and panels on current topics in the field of
  ad hoc and sensor networking and applications are solicited. Panels
  related to the commercial application and development of sensors and
  ad hoc networks are especially encouraged.


  Demonstrations that showcase the practical implementations,
  industrial and commercial developments, and new applications for ad
  hoc and sensor networks are solicited.  


* All submissions will be handled electronically via EDAS
  Please refer to the appropriate link and information at the
  conference website, http://www.ieee-secon.org/2004.

* The conference will only accept for review original papers that have
  not been previously published and are not currently under review by
  another conference or journal. All submissions will be handled
  electronically and must be in PDF or PostScript format.

* The length of FULL papers (describing original, previously
  unpublished research work, experimental efforts, practical
  experiences, etc.) must NOT exceed 10 IEEE conference-style pages
  (US "Letter" size, 8.5 x 11 inches) including text, figures and
  references, in two-column, single-space format, with a font size of
  11 points.

* The length of SHORT papers (focusing on future research directions,
  industry challenges, highly novel approaches, etc.) must not exceed
  6 IEEE conference-style pages (US "Letter" size, 8.5 x 11 inches)
  including text, figures and references, in two-column, single-space
  format, with a font size of 11 points.

* Papers not following these guidelines will be rejected.

* All submissions will be reviewed for technical merits and relevance
  to the conference.

* Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings.
