This publication constitutes the complaints of the 1st foreign ICST convention, S-CUBE 2009, held in Pisa, Italy, in september 2009. The sixteen contributions released during this quantity have been rigorously chosen from forty five submitted works in a rigorous peer-reviewed technique. as well as this three individual researchers have been requested to give a contribution three invited papers. The papers learn study demanding situations dealing with process improvement and software program aid for instant sensor networks (WSNs). at present, instant sensor networks introduce leading edge and engaging software situations which may aid a large number of diverse purposes together with environmental tracking, catastrophe prevention, development automation, item monitoring, nuclear reactor keep an eye on, fireplace detection, agriculture, healthcare, and site visitors tracking. The common reputation of those new companies will be enhanced through the definition of frameworks and architectures that experience the aptitude to greatly simplify software program improvement for instant sensor community dependent functions. the purpose of those new architectures is to help versatile, scalable programming of functions in accordance with adaptive middleware. for this reason, WSNs require novel programming paradigms and applied sciences. additionally the layout of recent complicated platforms, characterised via the interplay of alternative and heterogeneous assets, will let the improvement of cutting edge functions that meet excessive functionality targets. consequently, WSNs require contributions from many fields similar to embedded platforms, allotted structures, facts administration, method defense and purposes.
