ACM SenSys 2010: Call for Participation

The 8th ACM Conference on Embedded Networked Sensor Systems November 3-5, 2010

Workshops: November 2nd, 2010, Zurich, Switzerland


The 8th ACM Conference on Embedded Networked Sensor Systems (SenSys 2010) is a highly selective, single-track 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.

ACM Sensys 2010 Doctoral Colloquium

The ACM Sensys 2010 Doctoral Colloquium will be held on November 2, 2010, ETH Zurich, Switzerland.

The purpose of the doctoral colloquium (DC) is to provide a friendly, supportive, and constructive atmosphere 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 six months after the DC, so that any advice or input may still be incorporated into the doctoral work.

The DC will be a one-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 order to provide such individual attention, the number of accepted DC participants will be limited to twelve.
