Call for Papers
The 9th ACM Conference on Embedded Networked Sensor Systems (SenSys 2011) solicits innovative research papers on the systems issues of networked, embedded sensing and control. The conference 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 view of sensor systems to include any distributed system that interacts with the physical world.
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
- Wireless communication systems and protocols for sensor networks
- 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
- Sensor systems leveraging mobile phones, RFIDs, robots, etc.
- 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 11-point (tight single-spaced) leading, with a maximum text block of 7" wide x 9" deep with an intercolumn 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.
