Call for Papers

ACM SenSys 2008
The 6th ACM Conference on Embedded Networked Sensor Systems

November  5 - 7, 2008
Raleigh, NC


The 6th ACM Conference on Embedded Networked Sensor Systems (SenSys) is
a highly selective, single-track forum for the presentation of research
results on systems issues in the area of embedded, networked sensors.
Distributed systems based on networked sensors and actuators with
embedded computation capabilities enable an instrumentation of the
physical world at an unprecedented scale and density, thus enabling a
new generation of monitoring and control applications. This conference
provides an ideal venue to address the research challenges facing the
design, deployment, use, and fundamental limits of these systems. Sensor
networks require contributions from many fields, from wireless
communication and networking, embedded systems and hardware, distributed
systems, data management, and applications, so we welcome
cross-disciplinary work.

We particularly encourage papers that extend the scope of the conference
beyond wireless mote-class sensor networks and we seek contributions
from a broad range of sensing-related fields, such as actuator networks,
RFID applications, mobile ad-hoc networks, camera networks, and others.
We seek technical papers describing original, previously unpublished
research results. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to,
the following:

- Sensor network architecture and protocols
- Sensor network algorithms such as localization, routing, time
  synchronization, clustering, topology control, and coverage control
- Rich sensor systems leveraging RFID, mobile devices (e.g., cell
  phones), cameras, robotics, etc.
- Failure resilience and fault isolation
- Analysis of real-world systems and fundamental limits
- Energy management
- Sensor network planning, provisioning, calibration and deployment
- Data, information, and signal processing
- Deployment experience and testbeds
- Data storage and management
- Experimental methods, including measurement, simulation, and emulation
- Distributed actuation and control
- Programming methodology
- Applications
- Operating systems
- Security and privacy
- Integration with back-end systems such as web-based information
  systems, process control, and enterprise software

Program Co-Chairs

Important dates
- Paper Registration and Abstract: April 7, 2008, 5pm US Eastern Time
- Paper Submission Deadline: April 14, 2008, 5pm US Eastern Time
- Notification of Paper Acceptance: July 18, 2008
- Camera Ready Paper Copy: August 25, 2008

All deadlines are firm; we will not honor extensions. Papers must be
original, unpublished work not under consideration elsewhere. All
submissions will be handled electronically and must be in PDF format,
fitting length and formatting guidelines as directed on the submission
webpage. All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed. The review process
is double-blind and hence, all submissions must be anonymized. Selected
papers of particular merit will be proposed for publication in the ACM
Transactions on Sensor Networks. For submission details, see the
conference web site at http://sensys.acm.org/2008/

Demonstrations showing innovative research and applications are
solicited. SenSys is very interested in demonstrations of technology,
platforms, and applications of sensor systems. Abstracts of accepted
demos will be published in the SenSys conference proceedings.
Submissions from both industry and academia are encouraged. For
submission details, see the conference web site. A call for demos with
submission dates, etc., will be posted at a later point.

Posters showing exciting early work on sensor systems are solicited.
Areas of interest are the same as those listed in the technical call for
papers. While the poster need not describe completed work, it should
report on research for which at least preliminary results are available.
For submission details, see the conference web site. A call for posters
with submission dates, etc., will be posted at a later point.

Workshop proposals are highly encouraged in emerging areas related to
sensor networks. A call for workshop proposals will be posted on the
SenSys website.
