                  CALL FOR POSTERS AND DEMOS
                November 11-15, 2013 - Rome, Italy

The ACM Conference on Embedded Networked Sensor Systems (SenSys) is a
highly selective forum for the presentation of research results on
systems issues in the area of embedded, networked sensors. Distributed
systems based on networked sensors and actuators with embedded
computation capabilities allow for an instrumentation of the physical
world at an unprecedented scale and density, thus enabling a new
generation of monitoring and control applications. SenSys provides a
cross-disciplinary venue for researchers addressing the rich space of
networked sensor system design issues to interact, present and
exchange research results, and demonstrate their work in a hands-on
research exhibition.

SenSys 2013 solicits submissions of both poster and demo abstracts in
reflecting research and development in the above areas of interest.
Contributions from industry presenting prototypes of platforms and
solutions that might enhance future innovative applications are also
encouraged. Submitted abstracts will be evaluated based on technical
merit and innovation as well as their potential to stimulate
interesting discussions and exchange of ideas. Authors of accepted
abstracts will be given a one-minute slot in a "madness session"
during the conference to present their work in front of the conference
audience. As with previous editions of SenSys, the best poster and
demo will receive an award.

All abstracts shall be formatted according to the main conference
paper layout. Accepted abstracts will appear in the conference


Abstract submission: July 29th, 2013
Notification of acceptance: August 19th, 2013
Camera-ready abstract: August 30th, 2013


If you are submitting a poster abstract, please add "Poster Abstract:"
at the beginning of the abstract's title. Use instead "Demo Abstract:"
otherwise.  Please submit your abstract here:


The poster session at SenSys provides a forum for researchers to
present their work and receive feedback from experts attending the
conference. We explicitly encourage submissions from students.

Posters must be submitted as a single PDF containing no more than 3
pages. The first two pages should contain an abstract describing the
research content of the poster, along with title, authors,
institutional affiliations and contact information. The third page
should contain a thumbnail draft of the poster's contents. 

For more information, please contact the poster chairs:

- DEMOS - 

Sensys solicits demonstrations showing innovative research and
applications. Demos which showcase working systems, new platforms and
tools, innovative applications, path breaking ideas, and other
revolutionary concepts are welcome. Submissions from both industry and
universities are encouraged.

Demos must be submitted as a single PDF containing no more than 3
pages.  The first two pages should contain an abstract describing the
research content of the demo, along with title, authors, institutional
affiliations and contact information.  The third, optional page, whose
format is at your discretion, should contain any additional
information that will be used only to evaluate your demonstration
proposal.  For example, you may detail what you will show during the
demo, outline special requirements (e.g., unusual space needs,
exclusive access to a wireless channel, etc.), or provide links to
additional online material related to your demo.  Links to videos
showing the demonstration are especially encouraged and videos of
accepted demos will be linked from the SenSys web pages.

SenSys 2013 Doctoral Colloquium
November 13 November 2013 (afternoon), Rome, Italy.

The Doctoral Colloquium (DC) of SenSys'13 is to provide a friendly, supportive, and constructive environment where PhD students can present their research-in-progress for an open discussion guided by a panel of experienced researchers and practitioners. Applicants should be far enough into their PhD to have a concrete proposal, and have initially outlined the salient issues and proposed research methodology. Applicants should not be planning to submit their PhD thesis or dissertation for at least four months after the DC, so that any advice or input may still be incorporated into the doctoral work.

The DC will be a half-day, seminar-style event, consisting of short presentations followed by roundtable discussion. Time will be allotted to each student not only for the presentation, but also for careful, in-depth consideration and discussion amongst the panelists and DC participants.

In addition to the DC presentation, the participants will be given a chance to present a poster at the poster session during the main conference.


Topic scope is the same as that listed in the SenSys call for papers. DC submissions should consist of a single PDF document using the SenSys paper template. The document should contain the following:

Research summary (3 pages) describing the work in progress and including a 100-word abstract. Things to consider for inclusion in the research summary might be: the expected contribution to the field of sensor networking; the original idea or thesis statement; the problem domain and the specific problem addressed; a brief overview of related work; the methodological approach; research carried out and results so far.

Student biographical sketch, including the names and affiliations of the research advisor(s), and expected date of dissertation submission.
The submission site can be found at https://sensys2013.cs.virginia.edu/doctoralCol/index.php

Research summaries will be reviewed by the chairs and panel members. If the work is accepted, a student may be expected to make clarifications and improvements to the research summary by the camera-ready deadline. Note that the research summaries will not be formally published, but hardcopies will be made available to colloquium delegates.
A prize for best student presentation will be awarded by the panel.


Accepted participants of the doctoral colloquium shall register with the SenSys workshop registration rate (if applicable at the student rate). The registration is free if the student also attends and has registered for the SenSys conference. Participants can also apply for SenSys travel grants.

Important Dates (all at 11:59pm PDT)
