Call For Papers

The 6th workshop on Real World Wireless Sensor Networks (RealWSN 2015)
Held in conjunction with the 13th ACM SenSys
Seoul, Korea
November 1, 2015

Wireless sensor networks have established themselves recently as one of the most
important enabling technologies for a variety of applications — starting from
agricultural and environmental monitoring and reaching to the smart city and
smart grid scenarios. A rich algorithm and protocol ecosystem has emerged too,
enabling various applications with very different requirements.

At the same time, real deployments of wireless sensor networks still prove to be
cumbersome and not sufficiently automated. Even the best known and used
algorithms and protocols need to be carefully manually tuned, in order to adapt
to the environment and the application.

Recently other sensing networks and applications have emerged, such as mobile
sensing, crowd sensing, smartphone sensing, cyber physical systems, the Internet
of Things, etc. Even if their concepts and approaches differ from each other,
the real-world problems apply similarly and even extend to challenges like
keeping up the interest of human users, enabling privacy and security,
etc. Thus, this issue of RealWSN will extend its focus to include all relevant
sensing applications.

The purpose of RealWSN is to bring together researchers and practitioners
working in the area of sensor networks, with focus on real-world experiments or
deployments of wireless sensor networks. Researchers and practitioners are
invited to submit original contributions which aim to tackle the problem of
development and deployment of sensing applications in the real world.

Workshop Scope:

The targeted topics of the workshop include, but are not limited to:
- Experiences from real-world sensing application deployments
- Software tools for characterisation, parametrisation and automatisation
of sensing applications
- Datasets gathered from real sensing applications
- Negative results and unsuccessful deployments
- Works in progress and not yet solved issues
- Management of faulty and malicious data in the real world

Sensing applications include, but are not limited to:
- Wireless sensor and actuator networks
- Mobile sensing, smartphone sensing
- Crowd sensing
- Cyber physical systems
- Internet of Things

Submission Guidelines:

Short papers (max 4 pages) together with all relevant documentation (source
code, trace files, etc.) should be submitted by July 26th, 2015. The same
submissions should be previously unpublished, and not currently under review by
another conference or journal. Your submission must be in PDF format with all
fonts embedded, and be formatted according to the official ACM Proceedings
format. Word and LaTeX templates are available at:
