International Journal of Distributed Sensor Networks is a peer-reviewed, open access journal that focuses on applied research and applications of sensor networks. A large number of important applications depend on sensor networks interfacing with the real world. These applications include medical, military, manufacturing, transportation, safety and environmental planning systems. Many have been difficult to realize because of problems involved with inputting data from sensors directly in to automated systems. Sensor fusion in the context of distributed sensor networks has emerged as the method of choice for resolving these problems.

This journal also acts as a medium for exchanging ideas and thoughts about impacts of sensor networks research. More importantly the goal of this journal is to provide a forum for the publication of important research contributions in developing high performance computing solutions to problems arising from the complexities of these sensor network systems. Articles highlight advances in uses of sensor network systems for solving computational tasks in manufacturing, engineering and environmental systems.

The research paper “A Novel Approach to Building a Heterogeneous Emergency Response Communication System” of Mr Janez Sterle, Miha Rugelj, Urban Sedlar, Luka Koršič, Andrej Kos, Peter Zidar, and Mojca Volk representing the Univerza v Ljubljani (UL) (ARCADIA Partner), was accepted for publication in the International Journal of Distributed Sensor Networks on 14 July 2015.
