Call For Papers

----------Apologies for multiple copies of this announcement---------

The Eighth IEEE PerCom International Workshop on
Sensor Networks and Systems for Pervasive Computing (PerSeNS 2012)

in conjunction with IEEE PerCom 2012 (
March 19-23, 2012
Lugano, Switzerland



Due to a high number of requests the submission deadline has been
extended to November 7, 2011



Wireless sensor networks collect sensing measurements or detect
special events, perform node-level processing, and export the combined
data from their sensing nodes to the outside world.
Sensing, processing and communication are three key elements whose
combination in one small device is instrumental to pervasive computing
and gives rise to countless applications.

This workshop will provide a forum to exchange ideas, discuss
solutions, and share experiences among researchers and professionals
from industry and academia.

Papers describing original research on both theoretical and practical
aspects of sensor networks for pervasive computing are solicited.
We particularly welcome submissions that present implementation and
deployment results. Particular topics of interest include, but are not
limited to:

- Sensor-based systems and applications
- Operating systems for Sensor Networks
- 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
- Sensor networks with mobile elements
- Cross-layer architectures
- Intelligent sensor nodes
- Security and dependability issues
- Modeling and performance evaluation
- Measurements


Papers of particular merit will be considered for a possible special
issue in an international journal.


Papers should contain original material and not be previously published,
or currently submitted for consideration elsewhere. Guidelines for
preparing and submitting the manuscript will be made available on the
workshop website. All submissions will be handled via EDAS. Accepted
papers will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press in the
combined PerCom 2012 workshops proceedings. At least one author of each
accepted paper must register and attend the workshop to present the
paper. Registration is to the entire event (there is no workshop-only
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.


Paper submission deadline: Novembre 7, 2011
