CALL FOR JOURNAL PAPER PRESENTATIONS‚Äč

SenSys has partnered with prestigious journals to incorporate presentations of some of their papers into a special session of the main program. The authors of papers in these journals are invited to present their work at SenSys, to expand the outreach of their archival publication while complementing the research track program offered to attendees.

The journals currently part of this agreement with SenSys are:


  • ACM Transactions on Internet of Things (TIOT)
  • ACM Transactions on Sensor Networks (TOSN)

Important Dates

    Submission of application for journal presentation: August 20th, 2021
    Author notification: September 15th, 2021

Journal Track Chairs

    Pei Zhang, University of Michigan (USA)
    Gian Pietro Picco, University of Trento (Italy)

Eligibility Requirements

To meet the requirements for journal presentation, a paper:

  • must have been accepted by any of the journals above no earlier than 18 months before the submission deadline below;
  • must be in the scope of the conference;
  • should report new research results or novel contributions that significantly expand upon previous work;
  • must not have been presented at, or be under consideration in, similar journal presentation tracks at other conferences.

How to Submit

The authors of eligible journal papers can submit their application to present at SenSys via a simple online form , notably including information about:

  • Title, authors and affiliations, and abstract of the paper.
  • A URL pointing to the original accepted paper on the journal website.
  • A statement explaining how the paper meets the eligibility requirements.

Selection Process

As eligible journal papers have already been reviewed and accepted by the partnering journals, the selection process does not include a re-review of their technical content. Instead, proposals and papers are checked against the eligibility requirements above. If the number of eligible proposals exceeds the one allocated in the main program, priority is given to papers that best fit the conference scope, complement the program, and maximize participation (e.g., by authors that do not have another paper in the program).

Presentation, Attendance, and Publication

It is expected that at least one of the authors of a journal accepted for presentation at SenSys registers to the conference and attends the whole event. Presentation is expected to occur in person, unless it is:

  1. Impossible due to travel limitations (e.g., health, visa, or due to the evolution of COVID-19 pandemics), and
  2. Agreed in due time with the organizers.

Journal presentations will be scheduled in their own track as part of the main program, and ideally allocated the same time as regular papers. As journal papers have already been published, they will not be part of the SenSys proceedings. However, the information about where to retrieve the original journal paper will be listed in the conference program.

SenSys 2021

SenSys is the leading conference for research on systems of networked sensing and actuation.
