Call for Contributed Papers and Special Sessions

The 2010 IEEE International Conference on Networking, Sensing and Control will be held in Chicago, USA. The main theme of the conference is technologies and applications for wireless sensory networks. In recent years, wireless sensory networks have opened several areas of research and applications. Many companies and research agencies have started working on the next generation of these networks. Wireless sensory networks are now used in many fields such as homeland security, agriculture, energy management, intelligent transportation and traffic engineering, logistics, warehouse management, disaster management, healthcare delivery, military, smart buildings, and manufacturing. This conference will provide a remarkable opportunity for the academic and industrial community to address new challenges and share solutions, and discuss future research directions in the area of wireless sensory networks. It will feature plenary speeches, industrial panel sessions, funding agency panel sessions, interactive sessions, and invited/special sessions. Contributions are expected from academia, industry, and government agencies. Technical topics of the conference include but are not limited to:

Bio-informatics, bio-signals and systems Medical and patient monitoring
Collaborative systems Micro/nano, electro-mechanical sensor systems
Complex system management Multi-agent systems
Control of networks Multi-level multi-objective optimization
