Special Sessions

Special sessions are very small and specialized events to be held during the conference as a set of oral and poster presentations that are highly specialized in some particular theme or consisting of the works of some particular international project. The goal of special sessions (minimum 4 papers; maximum 9) is to provide a focused discussion on innovative topics. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on digital support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by SCOPUS, Google Scholar, The DBLP Computer Science Bibliography, Semantic Scholar, Microsoft Academic, Engineering Index (EI) and Web of Science / Conference Proceedings Citation Index.

Scope

The continuous monitoring and responding to the variability in within-field crops is a key requirement in modern agriculture also called Precise Agriculture. Wireless Sensor Network make available a tool for the pervasive monitoring of the condition of the crop measuring characteristics such as: air quality, nutrients, irradiation, chemical pollutant, soil humidity and so on. Nevertheless, the effect of the atmospheric agents, the crop treatments, the long-term operation in large field make the implementation of the sensor network challenging.

Scope

Wireless sensor networks (WSN) are nowadays of high interest in several fields of science and technology including smart home, industry, environment and e-health. This trend is getting reinforced by the spread of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies in different sectors. WSNs can reach a high complexity level when they need to integrate many functionalities to satisfy the applications requirements. Thereby, major challenges are how to enable energy efficiency, overcome wireless deficiencies and operate in a self-organized way. Energy efficiency remains an open research problem and needs development of appropriate approaches. In recent years, significant contributions have revealed valuable possibilities to achieve energy-aware WSNs by designing energy harvesting systems and reducing the energy consumption of hardware, software and communication protocols.
