Call for Papers

The 9th IEEE International Conference on
Distributed Computing in Sensor Systems (IEEE DCOSS)
Cambridge, Massachusetts
May 21 - 23, 2013

Distributed sensor systems have become a highly active research area due to their potential for providing diverse new capabilities applications. The focus of 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 a Signal Processing. A new “Track of the Year” is introduced that focuses on emerging topics in sensing. In DCOSS 2013, the focus topic is “Social Networks and Crowdsensing”. The proceedings will be published by the IEEE.
Authors are invited to submit original unpublished manuscripts that demonstrate current research on computational aspects of distributed sensor systems.

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

  • Important Dates:
