As the speed of light (radio) is five orders of magnitude higher than the speed of sound, there are fundamental implications of time synchronization and propagation delays for localization.
Additionally, existing communication protocols are not designed to deal with long sleep times and they can't shut down and quickly restart.

Sensors and sensor networks have become a highly active research area because of their potential of providing diverse services to broad range of applications, not only on science and engineering, but equally importantly on issues related to critical infrastructure protection and security, health care, the environment, energy, food safety, and the potential impact on the quality of all areas of life.
Sensor networks and sensor-based systems support many applications today on the ground.
Underwater operations and applications are quite limited by comparison.In wireless sensor and micro-sensor networks energy consumption is a key factor for the sensor lifetime and accuracy of information.Protocols and mechanisms have been proposed for energy optimization considering various communication factors and types of applications.All topics and submission formats are open to both research and industry contributions.APASN: Architectures, Protocols and Algorithms of Sensor Networks Network planning, provisioning and deployment Network Architectures for Sensor Networks Network Protocols for Sensor Networks Structural design Distributed Sensor Networks Dynamic sensor networks Scalable and heterogeneous architectures Hierarchical clustering architectures Group-based Architectures Network topologies Mesh networking Device centric sensor networks Distributed coordination algorithms Topology construction Routing protocols Routing Metrics Distributed Algorithms Attribute-based named nets.The topics suggested by the conference can be discussed in term of concepts, state of the art, research, standards, implementations, running experiments, applications, and industrial case studies.Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal in the following, but not limited to, topic areas.We expect short and long presentations that express industrial position and status.Tutorials on specific related topics and panels on challenging areas are encouraged.The author kits URL will be included in the letter of acceptance.Work in Progress (short paper up to 4 pages long) Work-in-progress contributions are welcome.
