Call for Papers: The Fifth Workshop on Real-World Wireless Sensor Networks

19-20 September 2013, Como Lake, Italy

We are excited to announce that the fifth Workshop on Real-World Wireless Sensor will be held at the Como Lake, Italy in September 2013.

The purpose of the fifth Workshop on Real-World Wireless Sensor Networks (REALWSN) is to bring together researchers and practitioners working in the area of sensor networks, with focus on real-world experiments or deployments of wireless sensor networks. Included are also new forms of sensing such as those that leverage smart phones, Internet of Things, RFIDs, and robots.

When working with real-world experiments or deployments, many new issues arise: the network environment may be composed of a variety of different technologies, leading to very heterogeneous network structures; software development for large scale networks poses new types of problems; prototype networks may differ significantly from the deployed system; actual sensor network deployments may need a complex combination of autonomous and manual configuration. Furthermore, results obtained through simulation are typically not directly applicable to operational networks and it is therefore imperative for the community to produce results from experimental research.

Authors are invited to submit papers (12 pages, Springer format, 9 or 10 point font size) for presentation at the workshop. Papers will be selected based on originality, technical merit, and relevance.

All topics pertaining to real-world wireless sensor networks are of interest, including but not limited to:
* Experiences with real-world deployments
* Mining real-world WSN data
* Sensor systems leveraging smart phones (crowd sensing)
* Sensors systems involving Internet of Things (IoT), RFIDs, robots
* Experimental validation/refutation of previous simulation
results obtained by others
* Real-world performance of self-organization and self-management
* Debugging, testing, validation, and management
* Deployment and configuration
* Applications in medicine, industry, science, environmental monitoring
* Security and trust
* Scalability in practice
* Development and prototyping platforms
* Operating systems, sensor network programming paradigms, and languages
* Middleware for heterogeneous networks
* Real-time and dependability issues
* Hardware support for real-world sensor networks
* Robustness at all levels: communication, software, hardware
* Energy efficient protocols
* Hardware and software methods for energy measurement and profiling

Important dates:
* Electronic submissions due: June 21, 2013Extended to June 28th AOE (firm deadline)
* Notification of acceptance: August 8, 2013
* Camera-ready copy due: August 30, 2013
* Workshop: 19-20 September 2013

We will organize a poster and demo session as well. The deadline will be August 15 2013, notification August 22 2013.

REALWSN 2010: Call for Posters and Demos

The Fourth Workshop on Real-World Wireless Sensor Networks will be held on 16-17 December, 2010 in Colombo, Sri Lanka.

Authors are invited to submit poster and demo abstracts (4 pages, Springer format, 9 or 10 point font size).  Accepted abstracts will be included in the proceedings published by Springer in Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).

Posters should demonstrate early work in areas of interest similar to those listed in the technical call for papers. Good posters describe exciting ideas for which some preliminary results are available.

Demonstrations should showcase innovative research and applications related to the technical calls for papers.  The initial submission should include an appendix describing as detailed as possible what you intend to show. The appendix should be removed for the final submissions.

Important dates:

* Electronic submissions due: September 16, 2010
* Notification of acceptance: September 26, 2010
* Camera-ready copy due: October 8, 2010
* Workshop: 16-17 December, 2010
