Call for Papers
The 11th International Conference on
Distributed Computing in Sensor Systems (DCOSS 2015)
Technically sponsored by IEEE Computer Society
Fortaleza, CE, Brazil
June 10 - 12, 2015
Distributed sensor systems are paving the way to novel applications unfeasible with mainstream technology, or are proving effective in reducing costs of established practices. In parallel with these developments, the underlying technology is rapidly evolving, ultimately encompassing platforms such as battery-operated tiny low-power sensors; embedded devices equipped with significant processing capabilities, but still able to be effectively immersed in the environment; personal mobile devices, for example, smartphone and tablets; as well as autonomous robots able to bring sensing at the right place and at the right time.
The focus of DCOSS is to create a forum where to communicate cutting-edge research contributions on distributed computing issues in large scale networked sensor systems. These include algorithms and applications, systems design techniques, platforms and tools, as well as in-network signal and information processing. The 11st edition of DCOSS will be organized along four topical tracks: 1) Applications, Systems, Real deployments, and Tools; 2) Algorithms and Performance Analysis, 3) Signal Processing and Information Theory, and 4) Mobile Sensing. Each track will feature a separate track chair and program committee, as described below.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
All accepted papers will be included in the symposium proceedings, which will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Conference Publishing Services and submitted to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Authors are invited to submit original unpublished manuscripts that demonstrate current research on computational aspects of distributed sensor systems. Extended versions of selected papers will be invited for journal publication.

All submissions should be written in English with a maximum of ten (10) printed pages including figures. Authors may add at most two (2) pages as an appendix, that is, these two pages must contain supplementary material only that is not fundamental to grasp the paper's contribution. Reviewers are not obliged to check the content of the appendix.
Note that authors must suggest their preferred track for their paper at the time of submission. The conference chairs, however, reserve the right to switch papers between tracks if they deem them a better fit for another track.
