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.
