The ACM Conference on Embedded Networked Sensor Systems (SenSys) is a highly selective, single-track forum for research on systems issues of networked sensing and actuation, broadly defined. Systems of smart sensors and actuators will revolutionize a wide array of application areas by providing an unprecedented density and fidelity of instrumentation. They also present systems challenges because of resource constraints, uncertainty, irregularity, mobility, and scale. This conference provides an ideal venue to address research challenges facing the design, development, deployment, use, and fundamental limits of these systems. Sensing and actuation systems require contributions from many fields, from wireless communication and networking, embedded systems and hardware, energy harvesting and management, distributed systems and algorithms, data management, and applications, so we welcome cross-disciplinary work.

SenSys 2014 solicits submissions of both poster and demo abstracts in reflecting research and development in the above areas of interest. Contributions from industry presenting prototypes of platforms and solutions that might enhance future innovative applications are also encouraged. Submitted abstracts will be evaluated based on technical merit and innovation as well as their potential to stimulate interesting discussions and exchange of ideas. Authors of accepted abstracts will be given a one-minute slot in a “madness session” during the conference to present their work in front of the conference audience. As with previous editions of SenSys, the best poster and demo will receive an award.

All abstracts shall be formatted according to the main conference paper layout. Accepted abstracts will appear in the conference proceedings.

Submit your Poster


The poster session at SenSys provides a forum for researchers to present their work and receive feedback from experts attending the conference. We explicitly encourage submissions from students.

Posters must be submitted as a single PDF containing no more than 3 pages. The first two pages should contain an abstract describing the research content of the poster, along with title, authors, institutional affiliations and contact information. The third page should contain a thumbnail draft of the poster’s contents.

Sensys solicits demonstrations showing innovative research and applications. Demos which showcase working systems, new platforms and tools, innovative applications, path breaking ideas, and other revolutionary concepts are welcome. Submissions from both industry and universities are encouraged.

Demos must be submitted as a single PDF containing no more than 3 pages. The first two pages should contain an abstract describing the research content of the demo, along with title, authors, institutional affiliations and contact information. The third, optional page, whose format is at your discretion, should contain any additional information that will be used only to evaluate your demonstration proposal. For example, you may detail what you will show during the demo, outline special requirements (e.g., unusual space needs, exclusive access to a wireless channel, etc.), or provide links to additional online material related to your demo. Links to videos showing the demonstration are especially encouraged and videos of accepted demos will be linked from the SenSys web pages.
