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, DBLP, Semantic Scholar, Microsoft Academic, EI and Web of Science / Conference Proceedings Citation Index.

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.
