Call For Papers

The hardware for networked embedded systems and Internet of Things
(IoT) has evolved significantly over the last decades. During this
time two major classes of platforms have emerged for network gathering
and processing of sensor data: firstly so called "motes" that are based
on a micro controller and well suited for prototyping and testing
hypotheses and solutions in the field, and secondly smartphones as ubiquitous
and powerful yet mobile communications and computing platforms already
adopted by wide population. However, as the number of devices and
applications continue growing in numbers and reducing in size, novel,
superior platforms should emerge. Let us call these new platforms
"NextMote". What will they be, and how to design them?

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
+ Modular, multi-core, multi-radio, and reconfigurable architectures for NextMote
+ Devices for novel communication: dense, sparse, and directional coverage
+ Pushing NextMote towards battery-less operation: energy harvesting, storage, and transfer
+ Pushing the size of NextMote towards "smart dust", ultra-thin, and stretchable
+ Unconventional form factors and packaging: wearable, on-body, printable NextMotes
+ Surviving extreme environments and leaving no trace: bio-degradable, digestible, disposable NextMotes
+ Robust and redundant design for NextMote health, reliability and self healing
+ Design, evaluation and profiling tools, and next level testbeds for NextMote
+ Hardware assisted security and privacy in resource constrained devices
+ Low-level software, firmware, operating systems for NextMote
+ Ultra low-cost hardware and deployments at large
+ Nature inspired (passive) mobility, NextMotes as seeds or pollen

Submission Instructions
The short papers can be of a technical nature, presenting preliminary
technical results, or position papers presenting a thought-provoking
view regarding methods or applications.

Formatting requirements. The papers will be published as part of the
conference proceedings and will appear in the ACM Digital Library. We
encourage submissions from academia and industry alike. The papers can
have a maximum length of 6 pages (two column format).

Pages must have 8.5" x 11" (letter) two-column format, using 10-point
type on 11-point leading, with a maximum text block of 7" wide x 9"
deep with an intercolumn spacing of .25". The page limits include
figures, tables, and references. Authors may use the LaTeX templates
provided here:
