Call For Papers

The 18th Annual International Conference on Distributed Computing in Sensor Systems (DCOSS’22)*
Los Angeles, California, USA -- May 30 - June 1, 2022

* The DCOSS series of events are technically co-sponsored by IEEE and Proceedings are published by IEEE Xplore.

COVID-19 Planning

DCOSS 2022 is monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic evolution and a hybrid attendance format may be considered, if needed; in case of a hybrid format, every paper accepted for DCOSS 2022 (presented in person or virtually) will be published in the IEEE proceedings.

DCOSS 2022 is the 18th International Conference on Distributed Computing in Sensor Systems to be held in Marina Del Rey, LA, California, USA on May 30-June 1, 2022, and is technically co-sponsored by IEEE Computer Society and by the IEEE Technical Committee on Parallel Processing (TCPP).

In the last few years, we have witnessed a significant growth in the use of IoT and distributed sensor systems in a number of application areas, ranging from smart transport, energy and buildings, to factory automation, smart healthcare and environmental monitoring. In order for smart sensor systems to truly become useful and pervasive, we need to address a number of research challenges, including the tight integration of sensing and machine intelligence, reliable and efficient networking, interoperability and scalability, the need for dependable autonomy, interaction with humans, and important aspects of security, privacy and trust. DCOSS focuses on issues arising in the entire IoT and networked sensor systems stack, covering aspects of high-level abstractions, models and languages, novel algorithms and applications, system design approaches and architectures, as well as tools for simulated and real deployments. Potential authors are invited to submit original unpublished manuscripts that demonstrate recent advances in both theoretical and experimental research.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
● Artificial Intelligence for IoT
● Machine learning and data mining for IoT and sensor systems
● Smart healthcare to combat epidemics (including COVID-19)
● Edge and fog computing: distributed computing models from sensor to cloud
● Energy harvesting models and optimization
● Machine intelligence in distributed sensor systems and real time analytics
● Communication and networking primitives / protocols for wireless embedded systems / cross-technology communication schemes
● Autonomy: closing the loop between sensing and actuation
● Time and location management
● Task allocation, reprogramming, and reconfiguration
● Robustness, resilience, and dependability
● Security and privacy issues
● Approaches, tools, and experience of deployment and operation
● Performance analysis: complexity, correctness, scalability
● Mobile and human-centered sensing
● Interoperability, heterogeneity and scalability
● Social sensing and crowd sensing and techniques, applications, and systems
● Complex systems comprising wearable, robotic and/or fixed sensor systems
● Novel and compelling applications
● IoT systems for emerging and developing economies
● Green and environmentally-friendly IoT (low-power, harvesting, energy management)
● Design and implementation of real-world applications and systems
● Measurement studies and deployment experiences

Authors are invited to submit original unpublished manuscripts that demonstrate current research on distributed sensor systems related to the aforementioned topics of interest. Please use the US letter size (8.5 X 11 in) standard IEEE conference LaTeX format or Microsoft Word template available on:
All submissions should be written in English and have a maximum of eight (8) printed pages including figures and references. Note that DCOSS does not follow the double-blind review policy, i.e., the names and affiliations of all the authors must be present in the submitted manuscript.
