Call for Papers

The 14th International Conference on
Distributed Computing in Sensor Systems (DCOSS)
New York, U.S.A.
June 18 - 20, 2018


Distributed sensor systems today are increasingly ubiquitous, producing information-rich massive data about the physical world. Due to the potential of impacting an entire host of application areas, distributed sensor systems have become a highly visible research area. The International Conference on Distributed Computing in Sensor Systems (DCOSS) focuses on distributed computing issues in networked sensor systems (including, but not limited to, algorithms and applications, systems design techniques and tools, and in-network signal and information processing).

Potential authors are invited to submit original unpublished manuscripts that demonstrate recent advances in both theoretical and experimental research. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following aspects:

  • Computation and programming models from sensor to cloud
  • Energy models, minimization, awareness
  • Sensor data storage, retrieval, and processing
  • Machine learning techniques for sensor data analytics
  • Abstractions for modular design
  • Communication and networking primitives and protocols
  • Task allocation, reprogramming, and reconfiguration
  • Sensor network management, diagnosis, and fault tolerance
  • Security and privacy issues
  • Approaches, tools, and experience of deployment and operation
  • Closed-loop control for sensing and actuation
  • Performance analysis: complexity, correctness, scalability
  • Mobile and human-centered sensing
  • Sensing for the Internet of Things
  • Crowd sensing and social sensing techniques, applications, and systems
  • Sensing for smart grid systems, green networks, and sustainability
  • In addition to DCOSS’s traditional focus, DCOSS 2018 will include a “track of the year”: Massive Sensing for the Industrial IoT. Topics of interests include but are not limited to:

  • Dependable, safe, secure networked sensing and control
  • Cloud-based big sensor data management
  • Real-time sensor data analytics
  • Heterogeneity and interoperability of sensor systems
  • Industrial applications such as predictive maintenance, smart factories, smart products, ...
