IEEE DCOSS 2013 Call for Work-in-Progress

Work-in-Progress (WiP) track provides an opportunity to showcase and report innovative works that are still at an early stage. Researchers and practitioners are encouraged to submit to the WiP track of DCOSS as it provides a unique opportunity for sharing valuable ideas, stimulating feedback and suggestions on early-stage work, and fostering discussions and collaborations with experience in the field colleagues during the DCOSS.

The topics of interest for WiP papers are identical to those in the main DCOSS conference as listed below:
  • Machine-to-Machine
  • Sensors in Smart Grid Systems
  • Green Networks and Systems
  • 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

    Submissions to the WiP track will be reviewed by a subset of the DCOSS Technical Program Committee.  Papers Submission WiP paper submissions is limited to a maximum of three (3) pages using the same style files as for the normal DCOSS papers; longer submissions will not be reviewed. All accepted WiP papers will be included in the Proceedings' CD.  The title has to be preceded by "Work-in-Progress: ...". Authors should limit their contribution to latest and truly novel issues of their work. Standard IEEE conference templates for LaTeX formats are found here. You can also use the sample template for Microsoft Word: A4, US letter. 
    All submissions should be written in English.
    Paper submission process via EDAS
