November, 2021, Coimbra, Portugal


More than one year has passed since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many research groups of the embedded and mobile sensing community have researched approaches to assist healthcare workers in better treating this worldwide pandemic, as well as to support the general public in better protecting themselves from potential risks of exposure.

ACM SenSys 2021 will host a special session for sharing such efforts and solicits submissions of poster-style abstracts reflecting on-going research progress. We welcome submissions that discuss topics related to (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Contact tracing technologies for COVID-19
  • Data collection and analytics for COVID-19
  • System design and deployment experiences
  • IT-medicine collaborative efforts in tackling infectious diseases
  • Clinical support systems for pandemic response
  • System design for remote education
  • Other system design and implementation experiences to address challenges in the with-COVID-19/post-COVID-19 era

Submitted abstracts will be evaluated based on technical merit and innovation as well as their potential to stimulate interesting discussions and exchange of ideas.

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.
