Introduction This rst issue of ACM Transactions on Sensor Networks (TOSN) marks a signi cant milestone in the evolution of sensor network research and technology. The eld of sensor networks has seen a number of conferences and workshops in the past six years, for example, the ACM/IEEE Conference on Information Processing in Sensor Networks (IPSN), the ACM Conference on Embedded Networked Sensor Systems (Sensys), the IEEE Communications Society Conference on Sensor and Ad Hoc Communications and Networks, the International Conference on Distributed Computing in Sensor Systems, among others. As the eld matures, it is natural for researchers to report their results in a more permanent, archival venue. Just as in other scienti c and engineering disciplines, the journal editorial process allows authors to iterate their work, often based on a conference or workshop publication, and to signi cantly improve the organization and completeness of the exposition through a refereeing and revision process. The recent rapid advances in miniturization and new radio technology have fueled the tremendous interest in micro-sensor networks. In the US, funding agencies such as DARPA has played an important role in the germination of the eld with programs such as Sensor Information Technology (SensIT) and http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png ACM Transactions on Sensor Networks (TOSN) Association for Computing Machinery
