The WSN4DC symposium aims to bring together a wide spectrum of international experts to facilitate a creative environment for the promotion of collaboration and knowledge transfer under the domain of WSN usage for Developing Countries (DC). In particular it will facilitate a dialogue between major industry players, entrepreneurs and academia to help create a roadmap for the development of tangible research environment in the developing countries. It is an international forum for researchers to exchange information regarding novel aspects of technology, application and service development within the WSN domain.
The symposium program will consist of keynote speakers from both industry and academia and panel discussion. There will be opportunities to attend interactive, high quality, peer reviewed sessions which will provide detailed insights from forward thinkers working in the themes of the conference. Additionally, there will be an exhibition for both international and niche market to display their latest products and services and to undertake a range of networking opportunities.
The proceedings of WSN4DC ’13 symposium will be published by Springer (TBD). Additionally, the extended version of selected papers will be published as especial issue in reputed indexed journals (TBD).
