The Fifth China Wireless Sensor Network (CWSN2011) and the Fifth Anniversary Celebration of China Computer Federation Technical Committee on Sensor Network took place during September 26-27, 2011 at China National Convention Center. It is hosted by China Computer Federation, co-hosted by China Computer Federation Technical Committee on Sensor Network and organized by Tsinghua University and Institute of Software of Chinese Academy of Sciences.
General Chairs Prof. Andrew Yao and Prof. Hao Dai together with Prof. Weimin Zheng, Vice Secretariat of China Computer Federation and Mr. Renyi Xiao from National Natural Science Foundation of China joined the opening ceremony chaired by Prof. Amy Wang, conference PC Co-Chair.
CWSN conferences have been held for 4 consecutive years since 2007. It provides a forum of sensor network for researchers in this field home and abroad. CWSN2011 further promotes the exchanges on the theory and application of wireless sensor network and probes into the typical challenging problem and research on sensor network. It is a high-level conference that focuses on the theory of sensor network, algorithm, systems, applications and other forward-looking problems. In addition, it offers opportunities to exchange ideas on hot topics, including CPS and the internet of things.
Well-known scholars are invited to deliver keynote speeches. They are Prof. David Culler, Professor and Chair of Computer Science at UC Berkeley, Prof. P.R. Kumar from University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, Prof. Roger Wattenhofer from ETH Zurich and Prof. Hequan Wu from Chinese Academy of Engineering. Their talks “The Internet of Every Thing - steps toward sustainability”, “Challenges in Cyberphysical Systems” and “Some Thoughts on the Design of ‘Internet of Things’” are well-received.
Around 300 researchers, students and scholars from Tsinghua University, Nanjing University, Zhejiang University, Institute of Software, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Institute of Computing Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Renmin University of China, Wuhan University, Harbin Institute of Technology, Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications and etc. joined the opening ceremony.
The conference received support from Baidu, MSRA, Siemens, MEMSIC, DEVISER, LOIT Beijing Computing Center, Smeshlink, HN and TMC.
