*Call for papers*

Wireless sensor and actor networks (WSANs) are the confluence point 
where the traditional fields of wireless sensor networks (WSNs), robot 
networks and control theory meet. In WSAN, nodes collaborate to 
accomplish distributed sensing and actuation tasks. Leveraged by the 
control and mobility of actors, the networking process and applications 
embrace a whole new set of possibilities. Actors may deploy, repair and 
relocate sensors to improve coverage, build routes and fix network 
partition to ensure data communication, change network topology to shape 
routing patterns and balance energy consumption, and respond to reported 
events in a timely and effective manner. The benefits are limited only 
by imagination. As an emerging field, WSANs are in need of new 
networking techniques, by which they can fully exploit their 
particularities and potentials. WiSARN aims to bring together 
state-of-the-art contributions on the design, specification and 
implementation of architectures, algorithms and protocols for current 
and future applications of WSAN.

*Topic of Interest*
