IMPORTANT: ACM copyright bibstrip has changed. If you downloaded formatting files from the camera-ready instruction page before Aug 24th, 2010 to use as template, please reformat your sensys submission using the current files. These new copyright information will be enforced for all camera ready submissions.

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.

Anonymity Requirements

All submitted papers will be judged based on their quality and relevance through double-blind reviewing, where the identities of the authors are withheld from the reviewers. As an author, you are required to make a good faith effort to preserve the anonymity of your submission, while at the same time allowing the reader to fully grasp the context of related past work, including your own. Common sense and careful writing will go a long way towards preserving anonymity. Minimally, please take the following steps when preparing your submission:

  • Remove authors' names and affiliations from the title page.
  • Remove acknowledgment of identifying names and funding sources.
  • Use care in naming your files. Source file names, e.g., Joe.Smith.dvi, are often embedded in the final output as readily accessible comments.
  • Use care in referring to related work, particularly your own. Do not omit references to provide anonymity, as this leaves the reviewer unable to grasp the context. Instead, a good solution is to reference your past work in the third person, just as you would any other piece of related work.

The requirement for anonymity is not meant to extend beyond the submission process to the detriment of your research. In particular, you may circulate your submission among colleagues or discuss it on a mailing list if you see fit.
