For more than a decade, embedded wireless sensors and actuators have beenincreasingly networked to continually narrow the gap between the physical world and cyberspace. Domain-specific sensing deployments in scenarios like industrial settings and home automation are becoming more and more ubiquitous, particularly with the advent of novel sensing platforms which allow for the seamless integration of sensing devices into everyday environments. At the same time, data gathered through wireless sensor network deployments empower applications in the emerging domains of smart cities and smart infrastructures.

While enabling technologies have evolved into mature and widely available solutions, insights gathered from real-world sensor network deployments are still scarce and many practical issues in building sensor network applications persist. A thorough understanding of these challenges from a practical/systems perspective is still necessary. This especially applies to insights from the areas of hardware platforms of sensor and actuator nodes, their operating systems, the networking of nodes, and fresh perspectives from field trials and applications.

This workshop aims at bringing together researchers from both academia and industry to showcase their work and obtain feedback. It serves as a forum for the sensing network research communities working on embedded sensing systems to discuss open issues, novel solutions, and the future development of wireless sensing in general. We encourage contributions describing innovative work in the realms of wireless sensor networks, cyber-physical systems, smart spaces, the Internet of Things, and all related disciplines.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Practical experiences from innovative real-world sensor network deployments and applications
- Hands-on experiences with the integration of sensor networks and the Internet of Things
- Middleware support for sensor networks
- Programming and debugging sensor networks
- Security, availability and dependability issues in sensor networks
- Experiences with new sensor hardware and node/platform designs
- Experiences with sensor hardware integration
- Practical problems in implementing localization and time synchronization
- Experiences with communication protocols
- Practical medium access control protocols (MACs)
- Topology control and routing protocols in sensor network deployments
- Novel communication paradigms for wireless sensor networks
- Mobility management in sensor applications and deployments
- Fault-tolerance and troubleshooting sensor networks
- Antenna design and experiences with signal propagation
- Experiences regarding energy management and network lifetime
- Experiences with energy harvesters and energy-sustainable designs
- Deployment, installation, and configuration support
- Management of large-scale sensor networks and sensing campaigns
- Interconnection between IP and sensor networks
- Interfacing with sensor networks using mobile computing devices
- Large-scale open sensor data sets from real deployments
- Integration of wireless sensor networks with smart city infrastructures
- Smart infrastructure support with wireless sensing technology
- Real-world use of WSN platforms in smart spaces and cyber-physical systems
- Sensor networking for smart power grids

Submitted papers will be reviewed by at least three independent experts in the field. Proceedings of the workshop will be published together with those of IEEE LCN, and will be available in digital format from the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

Authors are invited to submit original unpublished work, not currently under review by another conference, workshop or journal. Full papers must be restricted to 8 camera-ready pages (in 10 pt font, double column, US
letter size, 8.5 x 11 inches, IEEE format), including text, figures and references.

Papers must be submitted electronically via EDAS at:

All papers must include title, complete contact information of all authors, abstract and up to 5 keywords on the cover page. Further information can be found at:
