ACM SenSys 2007  
The 5th ACM Conference on Embedded Networked Sensor Systems
sydney, Australia, 6 Nov. - 9 Nov., 2007 

 
 
 
This year we particularly encourage papers that extend the scope of the conference beyond wireless mote-class sensor networks and we seek contributions from a broad range of sensing-related fields, such as actuator networks, RFID applications, mobile ad-hoc networks, camera networks, and others.
 
We seek technical papers describing original, previously unpublished research results. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
 
  1. Sensor network architecture and protocols
  2. Applications
  3. Rich sensor systems leveraging RFID, mobile devices (e.g., cell phones), cameras, robotics, etc.
  4. Analysis of real-world systems and fundamental limits
  5. Sensor network planning, provisioning, calibration and deployment
  6. Deployment experience and testbeds
  7. Experimental methodology, including measurement, simulation, and  emulation infrastructure
  8. Integration with back-end systems such as web-based information systems, process control, and enterprise software
  9. Programming methodology
  10. Operating systems
  11. Distributed coordination algorithms such as localization, time synchronization, clustering, and topology control
  12. Failure resilience and fault isolation
  13. Energy management
  14. Data, information, and signal processing
  15. Data storage and management
  16. Distributed actuation and control
  17. Security and privacy
 
Important dates:
 
Paper Registration and Abstract: 11:59 PM, 10 April, 2007,  US Eastern Time
Paper Submission Deadline: 11:59 PM, 18 April, 2007, US Eastern Time (new Deadline)
Notification of Paper Acceptance: 2 July, 2007
Camera Ready Paper Copy: 30 August, 2007
 
All deadlines are firm; we will not honor extensions.
 
Papers must be original, unpublished work not under consideration elsewhere. All submissions will be handled electronically and must be in PDF format. Papers must not exceed 14 pages (US "Letter" size, 8.5 x 11 inches) including all material (text, figures and references). The font size must be at least 10 points. Papers should be in two-column format with no more than 59 lines of text per column and at least 0.75" margins on all sides. All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed. The review process is double-blind and hence, all submissions must be anonymized. Selected papers of particular merit will be proposed for publication in the ACM Transactions on Sensor Networks.
 
This Call for Papers is also available as a Doc file, a PDF file, and a plain text file.
