Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) are spatially distributed autonomous sensors that monitor physical or environmental conditions (such as temperature, sound, pressure, pollution levels, humidity, wind) and cooperatively pass their data through the network to a main location. There are many application areas of WSN, such as health care monitoring, where sensitive personal information is collected and transmitted through the network, which inevitably may lead to serious privacy and security issues. This special issue will highlight major achievements and latest advances in the field of information privacy in WSN. We aim to gather cutting-edge contributions both from academia and industry. We invite high-quality submissions of original work not under review elsewhere.
