Title: Energy Optimization of Wireless Sensor Networks Using Swarm Intelligence


Energy saving in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) is a critical problem for a diversity of applications. Data aggregation between sensor nodes is huge unless a suitable sensor data flow management is adopted. Clustering the sensor nodes is considered an effective solution to this problem. Each cluster should have a controller denoted as a Cluster Head (CH), and a number of nodes located within its supervision area. Clustering demonstrated an effective result in forming the network into a linked hierarchy. Thus, balancing the load distribution in WSN, to make efficient use of the available energy sources, and reducing traffic transmission can be achieved. In solving this problem, we need to find the optimal distribution of sensors and CHs; thus we can increase the network lifetime while minimizing the energy consumption. In this talk, we are proposing three hybrid clustering algorithms based K-Means clustering and Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) to achieve efficient energy management of the WSNs. Our proposed algorithms are compared to the traditional clustering techniques such as the Low Energy Adaptive Clustering Hierarchy (LEACH) protocol and K-means clustering.

Petra was known as the rose red city half as old as time. Described as one of the most precious cultural properties of man’s cultural heritage, and included in BBC’s one of the 40 places you have to see before you die. The tour includes visiting the site of Petra, the Roman Theater, the ancient Tombs of Petra, having lunch in the city center and having some free time to walk around and do some shopping if you like.

Petra:  One of the Seven Wonders of the World, Jordan

Petra is considered the most famous and gorgeous site in Jordan located about 262 km south of Amman and 133 km north of Aqaba. It is the legacy of the Nabataeans, an industrious Arab people who settled in southern Jordan more than 2000 years ago. Admired then for its refined culture, massive architecture and ingenious complex of dams and water channels, Petra is now a UNESCO world heritage site and one of the New 7 Wonders of the World that enchants visitors from all corners of the globe. Petra is the treasure of ancient world, hidden behind an almost impenetrable barrier of Rocky Mountains, boasting incomparable scenes that make it the most majestic and imposing ancient site still-standing nowadays.

The approach through a kilometer long, cool, and gloom chasm (or Siq) a long narrow gorge whose steeply rising sides all but obliterate the sun, provides a dramatic contrast with the magic to come. Suddenly the gorge opens into a natural square dominated by Petra’s most famous monument, The Treasury (El-Khazneh),whose intricately carved facade glows in the dazzling sun.
More facades beckon the visitor on until the ancient city gradually unfolds, one monument leading to the next for kilometer after kilometer. The sheer size of the city and the quality of beautifully carved facades is staggering and leads one to reflect on the creativity and industry of the Nabataeans who made Petra their capital.
Petra is always breathtaking, and never to be forgotten. It flourished for over 400 years around the time of Rome and Christ (pbuh), until it was occupied by the Roman legions of the Emperor Trajan in 106 AD. The Petra basin boasts over 800 individual monuments, including buildings, tombs, baths, funerary halls, temples, arched gateways, and colonnaded streets, that were mostly carved from the kaleidoscopic sandstone by the technical and artistic genius of its inhabitants.

Petra sights are at their best in early morning and late afternoon, when the sun warms the multicolored stones, you can view the majesty of Petra as it was seen first when discovered in 1812 after being lost by the 16th century for almost 300 years!

STEP 3: Important Information about Preparing your Paper
STEP 4: Formatting your Paper
STEP 5: PDF eXpress Online File Conversion/PDF Validation Tool
STEP 6: Submitting a Copyright Release Form
STEP 7: Final Paper PDF File Submission

STEP 1: Paper SpecificationsPAPER PAGE LIMIT:

STEP 2: Important Deadlines


STEP 3: Important Information about Preparing your Paper

The IEEE is dedicated to the worldwide distribution of conference papers to engineering professionals. The IEEE digital libraries are the primary delivery method, especially the IEEE Xplore digital library. This requires that all papers submitted for publication must meet a minimum standard for both print and electronic publishing.

We now offer conferences free access to PDF eXpress™, the IEEE’s online file conversion/PDF validation tool, to assist authors in preparing suitable electronic files of their final papers. PDF eXpress™ helps authors convert their papers into IEEE Xplore-compatible PDF files (conversion function) or to check their own PDF files for IEEE Xplore compatibility (PDF validation function).

PDF eXpress™ is not a file submission system and does not capture files. An author’s file simply passes through the system returning a PDF file or an error report.

After using PDF eXpress™, you will still need to submit the IEEE Xplore-compatible PDF file of your final paper later in this publication submission process (see STEP 8).

STEP 4: Formatting your Paper

Your final papers MUST be formatted to IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Manuscript Formatting Guidelines (see link to “formatting instructions” below). It is highly recommended that you proofread and check the layout of your paper BEFORE submitting it to PDF eXpress™.

Formatting Instructions:

Please use the IEEE templates to prepare your manuscript. You must choose A4 paper size.

STEP 5: PDF eXpress PDF eXpress Online File Conversion/PDF Validation Tool
5.1) If you would like to create your own PDF file, please change the setting on your PDF distiller to insure your paper meets IEEE PDF specifications. Basic PDF distiller settings MUST be changed to:

  • Optimized,
  • Acrobat 5.0 compatibility,
  • ALL graphics at least 300 dpi resolution (higher if preferred),
  • ALL fonts MUST be embedded and subset,
  • Postscript settings DO NOT override distiller settings,
  • Page size is 612.0 x 792.0 points (8.5″ x 11″).

IMPORTANT: Authors must check their final PDF files before submission to verify that all fonts have been properly embedded and subset. Some font manufacturers now flag their fonts to not embed. These fonts must be avoided.

5.2) If you would like to submit your source file to PDF eXpress for conversion and validation, PDF eXpress converts the following file types to PDF:

  • Postscript
  • Microsoft Word
  • Freelance
  • PageMaker
  • FrameMaker
  • Word Pro
  • WordPerfect
  • QuarkXpress*
  • Rich Text Format
  • (La)TeX (DVI and all support files required)*


* For documents created in formats that do not embed source files, include all support files with the final manuscript in a compressed archive for submission. If it is possible to embed images in the source document, you should do so to avoid potential issues, such as missing graphics.

5.3) PDF eXpress will be available for use on

  7. Use PDF eXpress to obtain an IEEE Xplore-compatible PDF file.
  • The site contains extensive instructions, resources, and helpful hints.
  • Through your PDF eXpress account, you may submit your source application files for conversion to PDF, and/or submit PDFs for checking.
  • You will have the opportunity to revise your submission if you are not satisfied with the PDF that PDF eXpress creates for you, or if the system finds problems with your paper, or if your PDF fails the PDF Check.
  • Technical support via email and telephone is available if you experience trouble in creating your PDF.
  • If there is a problem with your file, you will receive an e-mail detailing the problem(s). Otherwise the system will e-mail you a copy of your IEEE Xplore-compatible PDF file.

STEP 6: Submitting a Copyright Release Form

Please fill out and submit the following form to access the IEEE Electronic Copyright Form (eCF) system. The eCF system allows you to complete and sign the copyright release form. You must complete the IEEE copyright release form using the eCF system in order to submit your paper. This copyright release form MUST be COMPLETED when you are submitting your paper.

Please note:You are stating that the material in your paper is original and you have not previously released copyright for this paper to another party. We cannot publish your paper without this properly completed form.
