The 3rd ACM Conference on Embedded Networked Sensor Systems (SenSys) is a highly selective single-track forum for the presentation of research results on systems issues in the emerging area of embedded, networked sensors. These distributed systems of smart sensors and actuators connecting computational capabilities to the physical world have the potential to revolutionize the way in which the real world is instrumented, monitored, and controlled. Such systems present a wide range of challenges to the system designer because of resource constraints, uncertainty, irregularity, and scale.

SenSys provides a cross-disciplinary venue for researchers addressing the rich space of networked sensor system design issues to interact, present and exchange research results, and demonstrate their work in a hands-on research exhibition. We seek technical papers describing original, previously unpublished research results.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, novel results in the following areas of research in sensor networks:
• Sensor network architecture and protocols
• Distributed coordination algorithms (e.g., for localization, time synchronization, clustering, topology control, etc.)
• Failure resilience and fault isolation
• Energy management
• Operating systems
• Data, information, and signal processing
• Data storage
• Distributed actuation and control
• Programming methodology
• Security and privacy
• Network planning, provisioning, and deployment
• Operational experience and testbeds
• Experimental methodology (e.g., repeatable experimentation, measurement infrastructure, simulation, emulation, etc.)
• Analysis of real-world systems and fundamental limits
• Applications
• Integration with other systems (e.g., Web-based information systems, process control, enterprise software, etc.)

The conference time-line is as follows. All deadlines are firm; please don't ask for extensions!
