Energy efficiency is very important for all
mobile/wireless devices due to mobility of these devices.
The recent evolution of sensor networks, Wireless Personal
Area Networks (WPANs), Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs), and Wireless
Metropolitan Area Networks (WMANs) has yielded a demand to improve
energy-efficient scheduling algorithms and energy-efficient Medium Access Control
(MAC) protocols. The effort to improve energy-efficient scheduling and MAC is
linked with many technical challenges including compatibility with legacy
networks, complexity in implementation, and practical values in real market,
etc. The need to address energy saving solutions and provide timely, solid
technical contributions of these networks establishes the motivation behind this
This special issue focuses on the novel and practical ways to improve energy saving solutions for Sensor networks, WPANs, WLANs, and WMANs.
Specific areas of interest include:
Energy-efficient scheduling such as sleep-mode
Optimization of energy-efficient scheduling and energy-efficient MAC
Performance analysis and modeling of energy-efficient scheduling and energy-efficient MAC
Papers with the following topics will not be reviewed, but should be submitted to the regular issues or other special issues.
Papers that do not
focus on energy-efficient scheduling algorithms and energy-efficient MAC protocols;
belong to Sensor networks, WPANs, WLANs, or WMANs
Papers that focus on
energy-efficient routing protocols;
energy-efficient protocols/algorithms in IP layer or above;
energy-efficient protocols/algorithms in PHY layer.
Transmission Power Management.
A NP-Complete or NP-hard problem
