Call For Papers

EWSN 2015
12th European Conference on Wireless Sensor Networks

9-11 February 2015, Porto, Portugal

The European Conference on Wireless Sensor Networks (EWSN) is a highly selective
single-track international conference focused on publishing premier research
results pertaining to networked sensing, broadly defined.

The organizers of EWSN 2015, the twelfth meeting in this series, are pleased to
announce an updated scope that combines the traditional focus of this conference
with emphasis on recent and emerging directions in networked sensing. These new
and emerging directions include (i) study of networked sensing in the broader
context of larger cyber-physical systems and Internet of Things architectures,
(ii) investigation of mobile and human-centric sensing, (iii) exploration of
large-scale data and information processing challenges.

CfP Highlights

* Extended Scope
EWSN 2015 will feature an updated scope, combining the traditional focus of this
conference with emphasis on recent and emerging directions in networked sensing.

* Updated Topics on Emerging Directions
In line with the extended scope, we are soliciting contributions to new and emerging
directions, such as: Human-centric sensing (e.g. crowd-sourcing/crowd-sensing, mobile
sensing) or big (sensor) data challenges (e.g. large-scale information processing,
analysis of sensor data).

* New Additional Paper Format
EWSN 2015 will introduce a smaller paper format for validated early ideas that can be
described by a more concise contribution. Therefore, we solicit two types of original
submissions for oral presentation: full papers (16-pages) and short papers (8 pages).

Topics of Interest

EWSN 2015 welcomes contributions describing original ideas, promising new concepts,
and practical experiences (experimental validation, rebuttal, and/or comparison of
existing approaches) that fall broadly in the following topics:

* Wireless sensor networks and protocols:
-Communication and network protocols
-Information and signal processing
-Software engineering for wireless sensor networks
-Programming abstractions and tools
-Hardware design and implementation
-Sensor network operating systems and resource management
-Cognitive sensor networks

* Sensor network applications and services:
-Sensing in cyber-physical systems
-Internet of Things
-Cooperative object architectures
-Novel uses of sensor data, including healthcare, body area networks, vehicular applications, and smart buildings
-Localization and tracking services
-Security and fault tolerance
-Sensor network middleware
-Models, systems, and experiences with humans as sensors

* Human-centric sensing:
-Crowd-sourcing/crowd-sensing challenges
-Mobile sensing
-Smart phone sensing applications
-Opportunistic, participatory, and social sensing

* Big (sensor) data challenges:
-Large-scale information processing, learning, mining, and analysis of sensor data
-Challenges in sensor data stream processing
-Networked data fusion challenges
-Prototypes, testbeds, field experiments

Paper Submission

This highly selective conference will only accept for review original papers
that have not been previously published and are not currently under review by
any other conference or journal. We will adopt a double-blind review process,
where the names of authors and their affiliations are unknown to reviewers until
the end of the review process.

Conference proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes
in Computer Science series (LNCS). Submissions should have a maximum of 16 pages
(full papers) or 8 pages (short papers), including text, figures and references,
and conform to the LNCS style (
