Title: "Sensornets: the Next Big Thing
(broadening the definition of sensornet research)"

Speaker: John Heidemann (USC/ISI, USA)

Abstract: The last eight years have seen huge progress in sensornet technologies: small computers and sensors costing tens of dollars, tiny operating systems running in hundreds of bytes of memory, short-range radios consuming minimal power, and multi-hop networks covering local areas. As sensornet research continues, one tend is "bigger": more powerful computers and sensors, higher-level operating systems services, mixes of radio technologies, and wide-area networks connecting sensornets in global deployments. This talk will look at these trends in new applications, and explore what principles from small sensornets carry on.
