S-CUBE 2013, the 4th International Conference on Sensor Systems and 
Software, provides an ideal venue to disseminate state-of-the-art work 
in the areas of system development and software support for wireless 
sensor network-based systems.

Wireless sensor networks are enabling innovative and interesting 
applications ranging from smart-homes and smart-cities to precision 
agriculture and advanced healthcare. The widespread acceptance of these 
new services however can be improved by the definition of new protocols, 
programming languages, frameworks, and architectures that can not only 
simplify the software development of wireless sensor networks, but that 
can also facilitate their system design, deployment, monitoring and 
maintenance. Tackling these challenges requires contributions from many 
fields such as embedded systems, distributed systems, software 
engineering, semantic web, real-time data acquisition and data fusion, 
wireless protocols and system security.

The aim of the conference is to create a forum in which researchers from 
academia and industry, practitioners, business leaders, intellectual 
property experts, and venture capitalists may work together in order to 
compare and debate different innovative solutions.The conference will 
feature a highly selective technical program consisting of regular 
research papers, short papers, posters and demos.


Technical papers describing original, previously unpublished research, 
not currently under review by another conference or journal, are 
solicited. The specific topics of the conference include but are not 
limited to:

• Critical infrastructure monitoring and control
• Data processing, storage and management
• Detection, classification and tracking
• Distributed algorithms for reasoning and signal processing
• Disaster (fire, earthquakes, …) monitoring, sensing and management
• Environmental Monitoring
• Experiences of real-world WSN applications
• Innovative applications
• Location, time, and other network services
• Network protocols
• Programming models and languages
• Security and privacy in sensor systems
• Smart-Homes, Smart-Cities and Building automation
• Tools and platforms for sensor systems planning, deployment, 
monitoring and maintenance


Accepted papers will be published in the Springer's LNICST series and 
will appear in SpringerLink, one of the largest digital libraries online 
that covers a variety of scientific disciplines, as well as in the 
ICST's own EU Digital Library (EUDL). LNICST volumes are submitted for 
inclusion to leading indexing services, including DBLP, Google Scholar, 
ACM Digital Library, ISI Proceedings, EI Engineering Index, CrossRef and 

[Best Paper Award]

The program committee will select one of the accepted papers as the 
“S-CUBE 2013 Best Paper Award”. The winner(s) will be announced during 
the conference.

[Paper submission]

The conference will accept full and short papers. The papers must be 
formatted using the Springer LNICST template: 
http://www.springer.com/lnicst/. Full papers are allowed up to 16 pages 
including figures, tables and references. Short papers are allowed 8 
pages and they should focus on presenting early and emerging results 
arising from thought provoking ideas.

[Demo/Poster submission]

S-CUBE 2013 will provide an exciting forum for the presentation of demos 
and posters. These submissions should be limited to 3 pages using the 
same format of regular papers.
