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We seek technical papers describing original, previously unpublished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

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.
