SNIGM 2011 : The First IEEE International Workshop on Sensor Networks for Intelligence Gathering and Monitoring
Call For Papers
The availability of a large variety of sensor devices allows wireless sensor networks to be exploited in different fields using different approaches. Applications which rely on 24X7 (continuous) monitoring are highly required by Healthcare Emergency, Security, Energy, ICT industries, Homeland security, Public safety and Military. One major challenge faced in many of these areas is the interaction between the system and the human subjects who wear sensor devices and hence are part of the system itself.
The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum to share and discuss among researchers the different applications and approaches of 24X7 monitoring using sensor networks. Papers describing original research on both theoretical and practical aspects of sensor networks for continuous monitoring are solicited. We particularly welcome submissions that present design, implementation and deployment results which take into account the effort to run the systems with low or minimum energy consumption.
Particular topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Healthcare and Emergency Response systems
- Energy saving architectures
- Green energy monitoring systems
- Data association
- Continuous authentication
- Middleware and software tools
- Networking architectures and protocols
- Data gathering, aggregation and dissemination
- Topology control
- Power management and energy-efficient design
- Time synchronization
- Location management
- Cross-layer architectures
- Intelligent monitoring
- Decision Support Systems
- Security and dependability issues
- Modeling and performance evaluation
- Estimation and prediction
- Monitoring sensor platforms
Papers should contain original material, not previously published or currently submitted for review elsewhere. Manuscripts must be limited to 4 pages or up to 6 pages with a $50.00 per page surcharge. The text of the full paper MUST be in double-column, IEEE conference style format. Please see the Paper Kit section on the CCECE 2011 website for more details.
Accepted papers will be published by the IEEE in the combined Canadian Conference on Electrical and Computer Engineering 2011 Workshops Proceedings and will appear on IEEE Xplore. At least one author of each accepted paper must register and attend the workshop to present the paper. There is no workshop-only registration. An oral presentation at the workshop is strictly required. Failure to present the paper at the workshop will result in the withdrawal of the paper from the Proceedings as well as from IEEE Xplore.
