Call for papers
SenSys takes a broad view of embedded networked sensor systems to include any distributed systems that collectively interact with the physical world. We invite submissions covering a broad range of networked sensing systems including conventional wireless sensor networks as well as novel platforms such as mobile sensors, cellphones, and domain-specific systems.
We seek technical papers describing original ideas, groundbreaking results and/or quantified system experiences. We especially encourage submissions that highlight real-world sensor network deployments, new application domains, and retrospectives on the state-of-the-art. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- System and network architecture;
- Operating systems;
- Services for time, location, and power management;
- Reliability and fault tolerance;
- Protocols at all layers (physical, link, network, and above);
- Programming models and languages;
- Data storage, retrieval, and processing;
- System security and data integrity;
- Novel applications and real-world deployments;
- Actuation and control; and
- Privacy and social implications.
- Consider a significant problem;
- Propose an interesting, compelling solution;
- Demonstrate the practicality and benefits of the solution;
- Draw appropriate conclusions;
- Clearly describe what the authors have done; and
- Clearly articulate the advances beyond previous work.
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 .25" intercolumn space. Papers that do not meet the size and formatting requirements will not be reviewed. Submissions will be judged on originality, significance, interest, clarity, relevance, and correctness.
Submissions will be subject to rigorous peer review and the top quality papers will be published in the conference proceedings. All papers will be presented orally at the conference.
