Wireless sensor networks represent a new generation of distributed embedded
systems with a broad range of real-time applications. Examples include
medical care, fire monitoring, border surveillance, and highway traffic
coordination. Such systems must meet new kinds of timing constraints under
severe resource limitations in highly dynamic environments. Wireless sensor
networks challenge many classical approaches to real-time computing.
Wireless networking protocols, operating systems, middleware services, data
management, programming models, and theoretical analysis all fundamentally
change when confronted with such new systems and environment.

This special issue seeks papers describing significant research
contributions on real-time issues of wireless sensor networks for fast-track
publication. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Case studies and experiences of real-time applications
* Real-time embedded operating systems, middleware, and data services
* Real-time and QoS-aware wireless sensor network protocols
* Programming models and tools for real-time applications
* Analysis of timing properties and performance bounds
