Call for Papers: The 2018 ACM Conference on Embedded Networked Sensor Systems (SenSys 2018)
Shenzhen, China
November 4-7, 2018
The ACM Conference on Embedded Networked Sensor Systems (SenSys 2018) is the premier computer systems conference focused on the architecture, design, implementation, and performance of networked sensing systems, sensor-oriented data modeling, and analytics, in addition to sensor-enabled applications. ACM SenSys brings together academic, industry, and government professionals to a single-track, highly selective forum, that takes a broad view on the areas of computing that are relevant to the future of sensor systems. Topics of interests include, but are not limited to, the following:
- New platforms and hardware designs for networked sensor systems
- Systems software, including operating systems and network stacks
- Low power operation, energy harvesting, and energy management
- Applications, and deployment experiences (such as smart cities, wellness and healthcare sensing, and industrial process monitoring)
- Resource-efficient machine learning for embedded and mobile platforms
- Wireless media access control, network, and transport-layer protocol designs
- New communication paradigms for ubiquitous connectivity
- Innovations in learning algorithms and models for sensor perception and understanding
- Mobile and pervasive systems, including personal wearable devices, drones, and robots
- Sensing, actuation, and control
- System services such as time and location estimation
- Data management and analytics, including quality, integrity, and trustworthiness
- Learning, adaptation, and autonomy in cyber-physical systems
- Heterogeneous collaborative sensing, including human-robot sensor systems
- Fault-tolerance, reliability, and verification
- Security and privacy in sensor-enabled applications and systems
We invite technical papers describing original ideas, ground-breaking results, and real-world experiences involving innovative sensor systems. Successful submissions will explain why the topic is relevant to a vision of the future of sensing systems. Submissions will be judged on originality, significance, clarity, relevance, and correctness. In addition to citing relevant, published work, authors must cite and relate their submissions to relevant prior publications of their own. Ethical approval for experiments with human subjects should be demonstrated as part of the submission.
