The 2006 International Conference on Distributed Computing in Sensor Systems (DCOSS '06) will take place in San Francisco during June 18 - June 20, 2006. DCOSS '06 is intended to cover high-level aspects of distributed computing in sensor systems such as high-level abstractions, computational models, systematic design methodologies, algorithms, analysis and applications.

DCOSS '06 solicits posters that report on recent original results or ongoing research in the area of wireless sensor networks. Authors are encouraged to submit interesting results on all aspects of wireless sensor networks, including algorithms, systems and applications. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Computation and programming models
  • Energy models, minimization, awareness
  • Distributed algorithms for configuration and collaborative information processing
  • Theoretical performance analysis: complexity, correctness, scalability, efficiency, fault-tolerance
  • Abstractions for modular design
  • Languages, operating systems
  • Task allocation, reprogramming and reconfiguration
  • Dynamic resource management
  • Scalable, heterogeneous architectures (node and system-level)
  • Communication and processing primitives
  • Middleware interfaces
  • Design, simulation and optimization tools for deployment and operation
  • Design automation and application synthesis techniques
  • Case studies: lessons from real world deployments

Poster presentations will provide authors with early feedback on their research work and enable them to exchange ideas during the Conference.

All posters will be reviewed and judged based on their originality, technical contribution and, particularly, their potential to generate interesting exchanges of ideas.


Poster proposals must be submitted as a single pdf file of 2-6 single-spaced, single-column pages with a 12-point font.

Please submit your poster paper pdf file as an email attachment to the Poster Chair Jim Reich at the address: jreich@parc.com. The subject line of your email must be "DCOSS 2006 POSTER PROPOSAL".

Posters should be submitted under the assumption that, if accepted, at least one of the authors will register for the meeting and present the poster.
