Scholarships to attend EWSN 2012 in Trento, Italy

The 9th European Conference on Wireless Sensor Networks (EWSN 2012, http://ewsn12.disi.unitn.it), with generous donations from the conference sponsors, offers scholarships to support students and researchers to attend the conference.

WHO SHOULD APPLY

Funding is available to graduate and doctoral students from any educational institution in the world. Applications from postdocs and researchers from
developing countries are also encouraged.

We expect to award a minimum of 6 scholarships. Of these, a minimum of 3 scholarships are expressly reserved for students (graduate and doctoral) from institutions belonging to the EIT ICT Labs (http://eit.ictlabs.eu) thanks to a specific sponsorship from TrentoRISE (http://www.trentorise.eu).

WHAT IS PROVIDED

Each scholarship covers the EWSN 2012 full conference registration plus one registration to a tutorial, and up to 700 EUR in support for accommodation and travel. The amount of support awarded is based on the cost estimate, submitted with the scholarship application; reimbursements are based on the actual travel and accommodation expenses, which will be arranged through the conference organization.

HOW TO APPLY

To apply, please send the following information via e-mail to ewsn12-chairs[aT]disi.unitn.it, either as part of the email or as a PDF attachment:

1. Name, email, mailing address, visa requirements
2. Name of the school or research center and whether affiliated with EIT
3. Current position (student, postdoc, faculty/researcher)
For students only:
a. Degree type (Master’s, PhD, …) pursued and field
b. Expected graduation date
c. Name and email of advisor
4. Expected expenses:
a. Specify type of travel (air, train, car) and cost
b. Specify number of nights in hotel and overall cost
5. Statement about why attending EWSN 2012 would benefit you (max. 1000

EWSN '12: The 9th European Conference on Wireless Sensor Networks

As the field of wireless sensor networks matures, new design concepts, experimental and theoretical  findings,  and  applications have continued to emerge at a rapid pace. Being one of the leading international conferences in this area, the European  Conference  on Wireless Sensor Networks (EWSN) has played a substantial role in the dissemination of innovative  ideas  from  researchers all over the globe. For EWSN 2012, the ninth meeting in this series, we invite papers describing  original,  previously  unpublished  research  results pertaining to wireless sensor networks, broadly conceived.

TOPICS OF INTEREST

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Hardware Design and Implementation
* Operating Systems
* Programming Abstractions and Tools
* Communication and Network Protocols
* Information and Signal Processing
* Security and Fault-Tolerance
* Prototypes, Field Experiments, Testbeds
* Fundamental Theoretical Limits and Algorithms
* Novel Applications
* Cooperating Objects and their Applications

IMPORTANT DATES

Paper registration and abstract submission:  September 16, 2011
Full paper due:                                                         September 23, 2011
Author notification:                                               November 21, 2011

RadiaLE

Link reliability is an important metric for WSN but the nature of RF propagation and the congestion of ISM bands makes link stability a hard guess. However, the flexibility and economy that low-power wireless networks promise are bringing increasing efforts in the community and the industry to better grasp the effects of path loss and the interference situation in the wireless link.

In challenging environments, the required link budget necessary to maintain a given Packet Error Rate (PER) can be quite significant, which is not compatible with the constrains introduced by inexpensive radio architectures and low-power requirements which define WSNs.

RadiaLE, recently presented at EWSN 2010, is an open benchmarking testbed that allows performance evaluation of Link Quality Estimators (LQEs), it aims for experimentation with existing and future LQE implementations.
