Most existing wireless sensor network (WSN) installations have in common
that they are not considered time-critical. No immediate action has to
be undertaken as a response to the received data. However, many emerging
WSN applications such as plant automation and control, smart cities or
health care applications require immediate and guaranteed actions. In
such environments, data has to be transported reliably and in time
through the sensor network. In some scenarios, data even has to travel
through the sensor network and the Internet to reach the destination. In
this situation the overall system spanning the Internet and sensor
networks must provide together the required performance characteristics.
Due to the lack of appropriate models, components and protocols, it is
currently very difficult to construct and operate a WSN with performance
guarantees. Thus, the commercial success of wireless sensor networks in
many application areas is unsure unless this particular problem is
understood and solved.

The PWSN workshop aims at bringing together researchers and
practitioners designing and deploying sensor networks that have to meet
specific performance targets.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
� Communication protocols with deterministic performance
� Network resilience, fault tolerance, network survivability
� Sensor data quality, integrity, and availability
� Performance-aware middleware
� Real-time operating systems for sensor networks
� Actuation and control
� Programming abstractions for deterministic sensor networks
� Impact of security features on network performance
� Experience with real-world deployments and applications
� Performance management of deployed sensor networks
� Timely data storage, retrieval, and processing
� Performance modelling and performance evaluation
� Configuration and installation support
� Performance debugging and performance optimization
