Call for Posters and Demos


SenSys 2017 solicits submissions of poster and demo abstracts reflecting on-going research progress and/or demonstrating working prototypes. We welcome submissions in broadly defined areas of interests (but not limited to): systems of smart sensors and actuators, brand-new applications of sensory devices, smart things, and smart infrastructure, and the underlying research challenges in communication, networking, energy and resources, data management, algorithms and machine intelligence, hardware designs, and deployment on real environments.

  Student participants will greatly benefit from the Posters and Demos session; it will be a lively forum to present their work and receive early feedback from international leading experts attending the conference. We explicitly encourage submissions of revolutionary concepts, path breaking ideas, and ongoing research prototypes.

  Major IT industry as well as emerging technology startups are also highly encouraged to participate. SenSys is an ideal venue to present brand-new products, early prototypes, new development platforms, or even ongoing crowdfunding projects of smart platforms and solutions that might catalyse future applications and/or disrupt today’s sensing and networking technologies.

  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 and the ACM Digital Library.
