IPSN 2015 : The International Conference on Information Processing in Sensor Networks
Conference Series : Information Processing in Sensor Networks
Call For Papers
The International Conference on Information Processing in Sensor Networks (IPSN) is a leading, single-track, annual forum on research in networked sensing and control, broadly defined. IPSN brings together researchers from academia, industry, and government to present and discuss recent advances in both theoretical and experimental research. Its scope includes signal and image processing, information and coding theory, databases and information management, distributed algorithms, networks and protocols, wireless communications, collaborative objects and the Internet of Things, machine learning, mobile and social sensing, and embedded systems design. Of special interest are contributions at the confluence of a multiple of these areas.
In addition to regular research papers, in IPSN 2015, we also encourage submissions of Challenge Papers that lay out visions and future challenges in the field of information processing in sensor networks. Challenge papers are up to 6 pages long and the title should start with "Challenge: ... ". These submissions are reviewed based on the novelty of the concepts and potential of impacting the field.
The conference features two submission focus areas: one on Information Processing (IP), and one on Sensor Platforms, Tools and Design Methods (SPOTS). The entire program committee is eligible to review both focus areas, but authors are encouraged to make indications in the submission site accordingly to aid in reviewer selection.
The IP area focuses on algorithms, theory, and systems for information processing using networks of embedded, human-in-the-loop, or social sensors. Topics covered in the IP area include, but are not limited to:
Sensor data processing, mining, and machine learning
Data storage, management, and retrieval
Coding, compression and information theory
Detection, classification, tracking, reasoning, and decision making
Sensor tasking, control, and actuation
Theoretical foundation and fundamental bounds
Network and system architectures and protocols
Location, time, and other network services
Programming models and languages
Mobile, participatory, and social sensing
Innovative applications and deployment experiences
The SPOTS area focuses on new hardware and software architectures, modeling, evaluation, deployment experiences, design methods, implementations, and tools for networked embedded sensor systems. Submissions are expected to refer to specific hardware, software, and implementations. Topics covered in SPOTS include, but are not limited to:
Novel components, devices and architectures for networked sensing
Innovative sensing and processing platforms including cloud,crowd, and Internet-of-Things
Embedded software for sensor networks
System modeling, simulation, measurements, and analysis
Design tools and methodologies for sensor networks
Network health monitoring and management
Operating systems and runtime environments
User interfaces for sensing applications and systems
Case studies highlighting experiences, challenges, and comparisons of platforms and tools
