October 31 - November 3, 2006

In the short period since its inception in Los Angeles in 2003,  
SenSys has risen to become the leading
forum for reporting on new, exciting, and technically important  
research in the field of sensor networks.

Please note that the cut off dates for the conference hotels and  
early registration are September 29 and October 30, respectively.

This year we have a stellar conference for you that includes:

* A keynote by David Carlson
  Director, International Polar Year Program Office, and formally,  
  Director of the Atmospheric Technology Division of the US National
  Centre for Atmospheric Research (NCAR).

* 24 technical papers

* 29 Sensor network demos

* 19 Posters - representing early results and work-in-progress

* 2 one day workshops on emerging and important new topics in sensor  
  networks. The workshops will be held the day prior to the main
  technical program 

  + First Workshop on World-Sensor-Web: Mobile Device Centric Sensory  
    Networks and Applications

  + First Workshop on Distributed Smart Cameras

Registration is now open:


Important Dates:
