[Apologies in advance, if you receive multiple copies of this CFP due to

IEEE Sensors Journal Special issue on
*Advances in Underwater Acoustic Sensor Networks*

Underpinned by technological advances, there is a growing interest in the
design, development, and deployment of Underwater Acoustic Sensor Networks
(UASNs) for marine applications. Most of these applications require
research in novel theoretical models or evaluation methodologies leading to
practical distributed and centralized algorithms. Sustained effort in the
recent years has resulted in applications now routinely adopted in UASNs,
but there are still many problems awaiting a solution. Some examples of
unresolved issues are managing the fouling and corrosion of electronics
devices, meeting the power requirements and the general problems of
maintaining equipment in a remote and harsh environment.

It is intended that this Special Issue will show the state-of-the-art in
Underwater Acoustic Sensor Networks. Original research contributions,
tutorials and review papers are sought in the areas related to UASNs

   - New underwater sensors/devices/vehicles
   - Cross-layer design and optimization for UASNs
   - Ocean currents model and sensor nodes’ mobility model for UASNs
   - Energy-efficient data collection, storage, dissemination and retrieval
   by UASNs
   - Network coverage and node placement in UASNs
   - Security, fault tolerance, and diagnostics of UASNs
   - Renewable energies in UASNs for marine monitoring
   - New materials, and packaging for harsh environmental sensing
   - Environmental monitoring in coastal areas or underwater environment
   - Autonomous ocean sampling and disaster  prevention
   - Targets tracking and assisted navigation
   - Tactical Surveillance by UASNs
   - Underwater hardware/software platforms for acoustic communication and
   test beds for UASNs
   - Undersea and offshore exploration
   - Study cases, implementations and real deployments of UASNs

 Solicited and invited papers shall undergo the standard IEEE Sensors
Journal peer review proc­ess. All manuscripts must be submitted on-line,
via the *IEEE ScholarOne Manuscripts™*, see http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/
