The 11th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Information Processing in Sensor Networks (IPSN 2012)
April 16-19, 2012
Beijing, China
NEW: Submission deadline has been extended to February 10th due to popular demand.

NEW: This year’s IPSN will have a new “pitch” session. Selected demo and poster authors will have the opportunity to present their work to the community with short pitch talks during one of the technical sessions at the IPSN conference!


The International Conference on Information Processing in Sensor Networks (IPSN 2012) draws upon many disciplines including networking, signal and image processing, information and coding theory, databases, information management, distributed algorithms, embedded systems, wireless communications, and machine learning. In addition to full-length technical papers, IPSN is very interested in showcasing demonstrations of novel sensor network technology, applications, and hardware as well as posters showing exciting early work. Abstracts of accepted posters and demos will appear in the regular conference proceedings. Submissions will be evaluated based on technical merit and innovation as well as their potential to stimulate interesting discussions and exchange of ideas at the conference. The content should be a two-page abstract in PDF format that follows the IPSN regular-paper formatting guidelines; submissions for demos and posters are not blinded; please refer to the IPSN regular-paper submission instructions for details. IPSN encourages both academic and industrial submissions. The poster and demo session does not distinguish between the IP track and the SPOTS track; submissions of interest to both tracks are welcome.


Demo abstracts should describe both the technology being showcased as well as the user experience of the demo. A table, power, and wireless connectivity will be provided for each demo. If a demonstration requires special arrangements in addition to the above, please describe them clearly in the demo abstract submission.

If you have any questions, please contact the IPSN 2012 demo chair: Xiaofan Jiang <fxjiang at microsoft.com>


A poster should report on research for which at least preliminary results are available, and need not describe completed work. An easel will be provided for all posters.

If you have any questions, please contact the IPSN 2012 poster chair: Pei Zhang <peizhang at cmu.edu>

Call for Extended Abstracts


The 11th ACM/IEEE International Conference on 
Information Processing in Sensor Networks (IPSN 2012)

April 16-19, 2012
(co-located with CPSWEEK 2012)

Beijing, China



IPSN 2012 - the 11th ACM/IEEE Int. Conference on Information
Processing in Sensor Network (co-located with CPSWEEK 2012) - will
host a Ph.D. Forum on sensor network Research. The Forum will provide
an opportunity for Ph.D. students to present their dissertation
research, including work in progress, to the sensor network community
and obtain individual feedback from leading researchers in the
field. The Forum will be structured as a series of short presentations
by the students, followed by individual discussions, feedback, and
advise. The student presentations will be interleaved with speeches by
leading researchers, who will provide their own perspectives on
current and future sensor network research, as well as on how to best
purse a Ph.D. in this field. Participating students will also have the
opportunity to present a poster during the main conference to leverage
further interaction with CPSWEEK attendees.

Current Ph.D. students in the early stages of their career are
encouraged to submit a 2-page extended abstract about their
dissertation research in sensor networking to be considered for the
Ph.D. Forum. The abstract shall also include a one-paragraph bio of
the student, along with information on how long he/she has been in
Ph.D. school and the expected time until graduation. The student
should be the sole author, although contributions of the advisor and
others should be acknowledged. Submissions will be reviewed by the
Ph.D. Forum committee to ensure quality, relevance, and potential
benefit from attendance to the Forum. Authors of accepted submissions
are expected to participate in person to the Forum - to be held on
April 15th, 2012 - and to present a poster both at the Forum and at
the main conference.

Submissions must be received no later than February 20th, 2012 via
e-mail to luca at sics.se, with subject "IPSN12 PhD Forum
Submission". Submissions must be in PDF format, be written in English,
of no more than two pages in length (all inclusive), and adhere to the
IPSN formatting guidelines
(http://ipsn.acm.org/2012/submission.html). The abstract should
include the author's name, affiliation, and email address. Submissions
will be explicitly acknowledged.

For any questions, please contact Luca Mottola.
