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 have become a highly active research area due to their potential for providing diverse new capabilities applications. The focus of the IEEE DCOSS conference is on distributed computing issues in large scale networked sensor systems (including algorithms and applications, systems design techniques and tools, and in-network signal and information processing). The conference normally features three tracks on Algorithms, Systems, and Signal Processing. 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 Authors are invited to submit original unpublished manuscripts that demonstrate current research on computational aspects of distributed sensor systems.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 considered for publication in IEEE IoT Journal.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Social networks and crowdsensing
  • Sensors for Smart Grid systems, green networks and sustainability
  • Computation and programming models
  • Energy models, minimization, awareness
  • Distributed collaborative information processing
  • Detection and tracking
  • Theoretical performance analysis: complexity, correctness, scalability
  • Abstractions for modular design
  • Fault tolerance and security
  • Languages, operating systems
  • Task allocation, reprogramming and reconfiguration
  • Dynamic resource management
  • Scalable, heterogeneous architectures (node and system-level)
  • Middleware interfaces, communication and processing primitives
  • Design, simulation and optimization tools for deployment and operation
  • Design automation and application synthesis techniques
  • Closed-loop control for sensing and actuation
  • Case studies: lessons from real world deployments
  • Network coding and compression
