8th International Workshop on Data Management for Sensor Networks

in conjunction with VLDB 2011

August 29, 2011

The Westin, Seattle, WA, USA


The scope of the workshop includes all important aspects of sensor data management, including data acquisition, processing, and storage in remote wireless networks; the handling of uncertain sensor data; and the management of heterogeneous and sometimes sensitive sensor data in databases. The resource-constrained, lossy, noisy, distributed, and remote nature of wireless sensor networks implies that traditional database techniques often cannot be applied without significant retooling. Challenges associated with acquiring, processing, and archiving large-scale, heterogeneous sets of live sensor data also call for novel data management techniques. The inherently incomplete and noisy nature of sensor data further calls for techniques for data cleaning, inference, and approximation. Finally, in many applications, the collecting of sensor data raises important privacy and security concerns that require new protection and anonymization techniques.


We solicit papers that address important aspects of sensor data management. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

- database languages for sensor tasking
- distributed sensor data storage and indexing
- data replication and consistency in noisy and lossy sensor networks
- energy-efficient data acquisition and dissemination
- in-network query processing
- networking support for data processing
- model-based sensor data processing
- query optimization and deployment planning in sensor networks
- managing loss, noise, and ambiguity in sensor data streams and sensor databases
- integration of live and stored sensor data
- challenges and techniques for new types of sensor data: e.g., RFID, images and
videos, data from scientific and medical instruments
- integration of sensor data of different modalities and from different sources
- personal, ubiquitous applications of sensor-based infrastructures
- techniques for secure sensor data collection and processing
- privacy protection techniques for sensor data
- collecting and publishing of large sensor data sets
- data stream management
- complex event detection and processing
- systems issues as they relate to the main topics of the workshop
- social and people-centric sensor networks using smartphones
- adhoc and mobile sensor networks
- experiences with real-world large-scale sensor applications
- semantic sensor web

Submitted papers must not have been published or currently be under consideration for publication at another venue.

We are particularly interested in position papers, vision papers, system designs, and papers that address new challenges for sensor data management. Furthermore, this year we are also planning to organize a special poster & demo session at DMSN.


Abstract submission: Mon, Apr 25, 2011
Paper submission: Mon, May 02, 2011
Notification: Mon, Jul 11, 2011
Camera-ready copy due: Mon, Aug 01, 2011
Workshop: Mon, Aug 29, 2011


All submissions will be handled electronically using the Conference Management System made available to us by Microsoft Research. Detailed submission instructions are posted on the DMSN'11 web site:

Full papers and poster/demo proposals in PDF format must be submitted by May 2nd, 2011. Papers should be in the ACM Proceedings camera-ready format and must be at most 6 pages long for regular papers, and at most 2 pages long for poster/demo proposals.

Questions about the submission process should be directed to the program co-chairs at:


Our goal is to bridge communities by bringing together interested researchers from different communities to identify future research challenges and opportunities. As such, the workshop will be organized in a way to foster interaction and exchange of ideas among the participants. We expect to have longer than usual question-and-answer periods after paper presentations, one keynote speech, and an interactive poster & demo session.
