**** ACM SenSys 2014 ****
Memphis, TN, USA
November 3-6, 2014


The 12th ACM Conference on Embedded Networked Sensor Systems (SenSys 2014) is a highly selective, single-track forum for research on systems issues of networked sensing and actuation, broadly defined. Systems of smart sensors and actuators will revolutionize a wide array of application areas by providing an unprecedented density and fidelity of instrumentation. They also present systems challenges because of resource constraints, uncertainty, irregularity, mobility, and scale. This conference provides an ideal venue to address research challenges facing the design, development, deployment, use, and fundamental limits of these systems. Sensing and actuation systems require contributions from many fields, from wireless communication and networking, embedded systems and hardware, energy harvesting and management, distributed systems and algorithms, data management, and applications, so we welcome cross-disciplinary work.

Workshops will be held on Thursday, Nov 6, 2014.

The ideal workshop proposal should focus on a specific emerging research area that is of strategic and long-term interest to the Embedded Networked Sensor Systems community. Interdisciplinary efforts that can leverage the expertise in the SenSys community while reaching out to new application domains, emerging technologies, and data analytics expertise to solve real-world sensing problems, are particularly encouraged. Workshops could have a combination of relevant invited talks from experts in a field, together with research papers and demos in the area.

The proposal should be no longer than three pages, and should clearly provide the following information:
 . name of workshop
 . theme of workshop
 . topic areas of interest (to define scope)
 . name(s) and affiliation(s) of main organizer(s)/program chair(s)
 . the name of the organizing committee member who will be the main point of contact
 . names of potential program committee members
 . tentative call for papers with workshop deadlines
 . expected number of submissions and participants

The proposal should also specify if it will be a full-day or half-day workshop, and any logistical needs (demos/audio/video projection, etc). If the workshop has been held before, also include its history (number of submissions, number of accepted papers, and number of attendees).

Note that selection priority will be given to proposals arising from previously successful co-located workshops.

Please send proposals in PDF format to the Workshop Chair (davidboyleimperial.ac.uk) by 31 March, 2014.

Important dates:

Proposal Submission Deadline 31 Mar, 2014
Notification of Acceptance 14 Apr, 2014
SenSys 2014 Workshops 06 Nov, 2014
