Conference Series : European Conference/Workshop on Wireless Sensor Networks
Call For Papers
Call for Papers
The International Conference on Embedded Wireless Systems and Networks (EWSN) is a highly selective single-track international conference focusing on premier research results at the intersection of embedded systems and wireless networking - an area of highest relevance for visionary technologies such as the Internet of Things and Cyber-Physical Systems as well as applications such as Industry 4.0, Smart Production, Smart Cities, and Connected Cars.
The featured topic of the 2018 edition of EWSN is “Sustainable Embedded Wireless Systems”, with contributions that aim to contain the energy cost and the carbon footprint of embedded wireless systems. This builds on top of the successful EWSN 2016 and EWSN 2017 editions featuring the topic of “Dependability”. Sustainable embedded wireless systems will operate on top of reliable, safe, and secure systems studied in past editions. Topics such as energy-efficient wireless networking technologies and architectures, backscatter communication, adaptation of embedded systems supplied by variable renewable energy sources, wireless power transfer as well as application of embedded wireless systems to increase the energy efficiency of smart homes, smart buildings, and smart cities are welcome. Topics not related to “Sustainable Embedded Wireless Systems” are equally welcome as long as they fall into the scope of the conference, as described below.
The conference solicits both full technical papers, and short papers describing validated early ideas. Proceedings will appear in the ACM digital library. A subset of the papers appearing at the conference will be selected to be fast-tracked to ACM Transactions on Sensor Networks.
Topics of Interest
EWSN 2018 welcomes contributions describing original ideas, promising new concepts, and practical experiences (experimental validation, rebuttal, and/or comparison of existing approaches) in all relevant areas of networked embedded systems such as Internet of Things, Cyber-Physical Systems, and Wireless Sensor Networks and their applications in domains such as Smart Cities, Industry 4.0 and Smart Factories, Autonomous Cars, and Smart Health. Specific topics of interest include but are not limited to:
Embedded wireless networking, from physical to application layers
Dependability (real-time, reliability, availability, safety)
Sustainability (low-power operation, energy management, energy harvesting)
Wireless embedded computing platforms
Operating systems, middleware, and services
Programming paradigms, languages, and tools
Distributed and embedded computing for networked systems
Applications, deployment, and management
Sensing, actuation, and control
Networked embedded sensing in robots and drones
Mobility, localization, tracking
Embedded data management and processing
Cloud, back-end integration, and analytics
Please ask the program chairs if you are uncertain if your topic fits.
EWSN 2018 is a highly selective conference. We 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. We will also provide authors the possibility of a rebuttal before final decisions are made.
Authors must make a good faith effort to anonymize their submissions such that the author identities are not disclosed to the reviewers.
Formatting requirements. Full paper submissions must have at most 12 pages. Short paper submissions must have at most 6 pages. 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 inter-column spacing of .25". The page limits include figures, tables, and references. Authors may use the LaTex templates provided here.
Paper Submission. Paper submission is managed through HotCRP at the following site.
