Present CFP : 2019

The 16th annual IEEE International Conference on Sensing, Communication and Networking (SECON) will provide a unique forum to exchange innovative research ideas, recent results, and share experiences among researchers and practitioners in wireless and mobile communication networks. The focus of this year’s IEEE SECON is twofold:

Systems research, experimentation, hands on evaluations:The conference aims to serve as the reference exhibit for state-of-the-art research supported by implementation and insights gained on all scales of experimental network architectures.
Cross-disciplinary wireless research: Looking beyond current networking paradigms, IEEE SECON welcomes pioneering cross-disciplinary work at the intersection of wireless and parallel disciplinary areas including (but not limited to) new devices, physics, biology, computing, to name a few, encompassing topics ranging from biological communication and computing networks to wireless communication networks in uncharted spectral bands.

The conference will have special plenary sessions for papers that fall under these broad categories, along with other regular sessions that encompass many other exciting developments in the wireless domain.

Papers describing original, previously unpublished research work, experimental efforts, practical experiences, as well as visionary roadmaps, in all aspects of sensor networks, Internet of Things, mobile devices, and wireless communication are solicited. Particular topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Wireless and mobile sensing systems in challenging media (e.g., underground, underwater, space)
Cellular communications and data networks, including 5G and beyond
Software defined and programmable networks
Cognitive radio and dynamic spectrum access
Internet of Things, Nano-Things and Bio-Nano-Things
New communication paradigms, such as Terahertz Communications, Optical Wireless Communications
Intra-body Networks and Molecular Communication Networks
Unmanned aerial systems; robotic wireless networks
Wearable computing and networking
Machine learning for wireless
Low-power and energy limited sensing and communications
Measurement of wireless and sensor systems, and novel experimental testbeds
Security, privacy, and trustworthiness of mobile, wireless and sensor systems
Survivability and fault tolerance in disaster scenarios
In-network processing/fog/edge computing in wireless networks
Application protocols and cross-layer design
Next generation applications enabled via wireless, such as virtual/augmented reality, autonomous driving, smart cities
Testing platforms for city-scale evaluation of new sensing systems

Papers should neither have been published elsewhere nor be currently under review at another venue. All papers for IEEE SECON 2019 must be submitted via the conference submission page. Each submission must be no longer than 9 pages and in font size no smaller than 10 points. Submissions that violate the formatting guidelines will be rejected without review.

All submitted papers will be judged based on their quality and relevance through *double-blind* reviewing, where the identities of the authors are withheld from the reviewers. As an author, you are required to preserve the anonymity of your submission, while at the same time allowing the reader to fully grasp the context of related past work, including your own. Common sense and careful writing will go a long way towards preserving anonymity. Papers that do not conform to our double-blind submission policies will be rejected without review.

To be published in the IEEE SECON 2019 conference proceedings and to be eligible for publication in IEEE Xplore®, one author of each accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the full (member or non-member) rate. The paper must be presented by an author of that paper at the conference, unless the TPC co-chairs grant permission for a substitute presenter arranged in advance. The designated presenter should be qualified to both present the paper and answer questions. Non-refundable registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the final IEEE formatted, publication-ready version of the paper. Only IEEE Xplore compliant papers received by the camera-ready deadline can appear in the proceedings. For authors with multiple accepted papers, one full registration is valid for up to 3 papers. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE SECON 2019 conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore® as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.

The organizers of IEEE SECON 2019 as well as our attendees expect accepted papers to be presented at the conference. IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference.

Papers can be submitted via EDAS at
