DCOSS 2016 Call for Posters and Demonstrations

DCOSS 2016 will feature a poster session and a demo session that provide opportunities for researchers and developers from academia, industry, and government to interact with and explore the latest research results. The presentations will provide authors with early feedback on their research work and enable them to exchange ideas with DCOSS participants. Besides presentations in the respective poster and demo sessions, poster presenters and demo presenters will each have the opportunity to present a one-minute rapid oral presentation of their work to attendees.

Posters and demos should present recent original results or ongoing research in all aspects of sensor networks, including algorithms, protocols, systems and applications. All submissions will be reviewed and judged based on originality, technical contribution and, particularly, potential to generate interesting and interactive exchanges of ideas.

Accepted posters/demos must be presented at the Conference and at least one author for each poster/demo must be registered for the conference.

Poster paper: Poster papers will be included in the Proceedings of the Conference and submitted to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Each poster paper is limited to 3 pages in standard IEEE Transactions format. Authors should highlight the leading ideas of the on-going research and its expected outcome and impact. Poster papers should present a summary of the research work and ideas that will be presented during the session.

Requirements for Demos:
