Call for Posters and Demos: The Fifth Workshop on Real-World Wireless Sensor Networks


19-20 September 2013

Como Lake (Italy)

Follow REALWSN on Twitter: @RealWSN!

The purpose of the fifth Workshop on Real-World Wireless Sensor

Networks (REALWSN) is to bring together researchers and practitioners

working in the area of sensor networks, with a focus on real-world

experiments and deployments. Included are, nonetheless, new forms of

sensing such as those that leverage smart phones, Internet of Things,

RFIDs, and robots.

When working with real-world experiments or deployments, many issues

arise: the network environment may be composed of a variety of

different technologies, leading to very heterogeneous network

structures; software development for large scale networks poses new

types of problems; prototype networks may differ significantly from

the deployed system; actual sensor network deployments may need a

complex combination of autonomous and manual

configuration. Furthermore, results obtained through simulation are

typically not directly applicable to operational networks and it is

therefore imperative for the community to produce results from

experimental research.

Authors are invited to submit poster and demo abstracts (4 pages,

Springer format, 9 or 10 point font size). Accepted abstracts will be

included in the proceedings published by Springer in the Lecture Notes

in Electrical Engineering (LNEE). Accepted abstracts will be indexed

by all major digital libraries (e.g., ISI, Scopus, Google Scholar).

All topics pertaining to real-world wireless sensor networks and modern

forms of sensing are of interest, including but not limited to:

* Experiences with real-world deployments

* Mining real-world sensor network data

* Sensor systems leveraging smart phones (crowd sensing)

* Sensors systems involving Internet of Things (IoT), RFIDs, robots

* Experimental validation/refutation of previous simulation

results obtained by others

* Real-world performance of self-organization and self-management

* Debugging, testing, validation, and management

* Deployment and configuration

* Applications in medicine, industry, science, environmental monitoring

* Security and trust

* Scalability in practice

* Development and prototyping platforms

* Operating systems, sensor network programming paradigms, and languages

* Middleware for heterogeneous networks

* Real-time and dependability issues

* Hardware support for real-world sensor networks

* Robustness at all levels: communication, software, hardware

* Energy efficient protocols

* Hardware and software methods for energy measurement and profiling


Posters should demonstrate early work in areas of interest similar to

those listed in the call for papers. Good posters describe

exciting ideas for which some preliminary results are available.


Demonstrations should showcase innovative research and applications

related to the calls for papers. The submission should include an

appendix describing the intended setup of the proposed demo and its

main requirements (e.g., power supply, space, etc.). The appendix

should be removed for the final submissions.


Submissions will be handled through HotCRP at

Poster/Demo Co-Chairs:

* Silvia Santini, TU Darmstadt, Germany

* Thiemo Voigt, Uppsala University and SICS, Sweden

Important dates:

* Electronic submissions due: August 15, 2013

* Notification of acceptance: August 22, 2013

* Camera-ready copy due: August 30, 2013

* Workshop: 19-20 September, 2013
