SenSys 2013 : The 11th ACM Conference on Embedded Network Sensor Systems
Conference Series : International Conference on Embedded Networked Sensor Systems
Call For Papers
The ACM Conference on Embedded Networked Sensor Systems (SenSys 2013) solicits innovative research papers on the systems issues of networked, embedded sensing and control. ACM SenSys brings together academic, industry, and government professionals to a premier single-track, highly selective forum on sensor network design, implementation, and application. We seek technical papers describing original ideas, groundbreaking results and/or quantified system experiences involving sensor systems. SenSys takes a broad systems perspective of sensor applications and systems.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
Experience with real-world deployments and applications
Resource management and OS support for sensing systems
Energy management and harvesting for long-term operation
Innovative sensing applications across broad areas (e.g. environmental monitoring, mobile healthcare, transportation, education)
Wireless communication systems and protocols for sensor networks
Sensor systems leveraging smart phones, body area networks, RFIDs, robots, etc.
Sensing technologies for pervasive computing
Sensor network measurement and characterization
Programming paradigms and models for distributed sensing
Sensor network debugging, fault-tolerance and reliability
Sensing, actuation and control in cyber-physical systems
Distributed sensor data storage, retrieval, processing and management
Approaches to sensor network architecture
Sensor data quality, integrity, and trustworthiness
In-network data reduction, inference, and signal processing
Security and privacy in sensor networks
Time and location estimation and management
Submissions will be judged on originality, significance, clarity, relevance, and correctness. In addition to citing relevant, published work, authors must relate their submissions to relevant submissions of their own that are simultaneously under review for this or other venues.
Submissions must be full papers, at most 14 single-spaced 8.5" x 11" pages, including figures, tables, and references, two-column format, using 10-point type on 12-point (single-spaced) leading, with a maximum text block of 7" wide x 9" deep with an inter-column spacing of .25".
Authors must make a good faith effort to anonymize their submissions. Papers that do not meet the size, formatting, and anonymization requirements will not be reviewed. Accepted submissions will be available on the ACM digital library at least one week before the conference.
