The emergence and adoption of broadband wireless access standards,
such as 802.16, 802.16a and 802.11a/g, offers exciting new
possibilities for high-bandwidth data communication over the "last
mile". A significant use of such high bandwidth may lie in the use of
a variety of multimodal sensors for monitoring and control of diverse
geographic areas. Such sensors may be used for remote video/audio
surveillance and active monitoring of telemetry data in city blocks,
highways, airports, hotels, campuses and a variety of other indoor and
outdoor environments.

This workshop is intended for the presentation and discussion of novel
architectures, algorithms and applications of sensor networks based on
the use of wireless broadband channels. Areas of interest include
problems related to energy efficiency, dynamic control and reliability
of such sensor network deployments, especially under the expected
resource constraints on the sensor devices. Of particular interest are
visions, practical case studies, demonstrations or pilots of
innovative techniques for building sensor networks using either
broadband local or metropolitan wireless networks.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Multimedia Interfaces for Wireless Sensors
* Broadband vs. Narrowband Wireless Sensing
* Video and Audio Sensing Applications over Broadband Networks
* Distributed Multimedia Compression/Aggregation for Broadband Sensor Networks
* Scalability and Performance Bottlenecks for Wide-Area Broadband Sensing
* Adaptive Configuration of Broadband Sensor Networks
* Power and Spectrum Management Issues for Broadband Sensing
* Architectures for Broadband Sensor Networks
* Applications of Wireless Broadband Sensor Networks
* Security and Privacy for Broadband Sensor Networks
* Broadband Sensor Networks with Mobile Nodes
* Heterogeneous Wired-Wireless Broadband Sensor Networks


Papers should be written in English, should not exceed 20
double-spaced, single-column pages, including figures and references,
and should include an abstract, not to exceed 250 words.  Papers
should be submitted in PDF format via the EDAS system
(http://edas.info). All papers will be peer reviewed.

The best papers of this workshop will be considered for possible
publication in the ACM Transactions on Sensor Networks
