SenSys 2013 Call for Workshop Proposals

The ideal workshop proposal should focus on a specific emerging research area that is of strategic and long-term interest to the sensor systems community. Interdisciplinary efforts that can leverage the considerable sensor systems expertise in the SenSys community while reaching out to new application domains, emerging technologies (e.g. energy harvesting, M2M communication), and data analytics expertise to solve real-world sensing problems are particularly encouraged. Workshops could have a combination of relevant invited talks from experts in a field together with research papers and demos in the area.

The proposal should be no longer than three pages and should clearly identify the name of the workshop, theme of the workshop, topic areas of interest to define the scope, names and affiliation of main organizers/program chairs and potential program committee members, the name of the organizing committee member who will be the main point of contact, a tentative call for papers with workshop deadlines and expected number of submissions and participants. The proposal should also specify if this will be a full-day or half-day workshop, and any logistical needs (demos/audio/video projection etc). If this workshop has been held before, also include its history (number of submissions, number of accepted papers, and number of attendees).

Please send proposals in PDF format by April 1st, 2013, 12:00 midnight EST, to the workshop chairs, Deepak Ganesan at and Luca Benini at
