She also served in the organizing committee of EnvImeko 2019


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.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Energy-efficient IoT-enabled WSNs architectures
  • Energy harvesting for WSNs
  • Battery-free WSNs
  • Energy-aware cluster-based routing protocols
  • Energy-aware localization
  • Energy-efficient data aggregation techniques
  • Schemes of data mining, processing and analysis
  • Fault-tolerance techniques in WSNs
  • Low-power, distributed data processing in sensor applications
  • Artificial intelligence for WSNs
  • Applications and testbeds of IoT-enabled WSNs
  • Cloud computing, fog computing and edge computing for IoT and WSNs
