IMPORTANT DATES
Submission Deadline: 11:59PM EST Feb 2, 2009 [extended]
Notification: March 24, 2009
Camera Ready: March 31, 2009

OVERVIEW
Distributed sensor systems have become a highly active research area due
to their potential for providing diverse new capabilities. Such systems
allow intelligent dense monitoring of physical environments. The focus
of this conference is on distributed computing issues in large-scale
networked sensor systems (including algorithms, applications, systematic
design techniques and tools, and in-network signal and information
processing).

Authors are invited to submit original unpublished manuscripts that
demonstrate current research on computational aspects of distributed
sensor systems. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* Computation and programming models
* Energy models, minimization, awareness
* Distributed collaborative information processing
* Detection and tracking
* Theoretical performance analysis: complexity, correctness, scalability
* Abstractions for modular design
* Fault tolerance and security
* Languages, operating systems
* Task allocation, reprogramming and reconfiguration
* Dynamic resource management
* Scalable, heterogeneous architectures (node and system-level)
* Middleware interfaces, communication and processing primitives
* Design, simulation and optimization tools for deployment and operation
* Design automation and application synthesis techniques
* closed-loop control for sensing and actuation
* Case studies: lessons from real world deployments
* Network coding and compression

Authors are invited to submit conference papers as described on
http://www.dcoss.org/submission.php. Papers should be submitted in
(Springer) LNCS format with maximum length 14 pages; this limit corresponds
to 6-7 pages in the standard two-column IEEE conference format.
