During the last decade the field of sensor network has attracted much of the researchers attention
worldwide. A sensor network is a network of distributed autonomous tiny electronic devices that can
sense/collect some natural environmental behaviour, process and communicate the information.
Consequently monitoring physical or environmental conditions became simple and effective.
Advances in sensor technology and computer networks have enabled sensor networks to evolve from
small clusters of large sensors to large networks of miniature sensors, from wired communications to
wireless communications, and from static network topology to dynamic topology. In spite of these
technological advances, sensor networks still face the challenges of communication and processing of
large amount of imprecise and partial data in resource constrained environments. Further, optimal
deployment of sensors in an environment is also posed as a NP-hard problem. Therefore, we believe
the computational intelligence approaches can suitably address the challenges in sensor networks i.e.,
in both wired and wireless environment.

Computational intelligence is an area of adaptive mechanisms to search and optimize the solution
using bio-inspired natural processes for very complex and changing environments. These mechanisms
include Neural Networks, Evolutionary computation, Swarm intelligence, Fuzzy systems, and/or
Hybrid Systems etc. these paradigms exhibit the ability to learn or adapt to new situations, generalize,
abstract, discover and associate. As most of the challenges faced by sensor networks are very
complex, and difficult to conclude in an optimal solution, the computational intelligence procedures
may provide promising solutions to some of the challenges posed above by sensor networks.
