DCOSS 2010 Call for Poster and Demonstrations

Poster and Demonstration Session:

UPDATE: Poster and demo abstracts will be indexed in IEEExplore. The submission date has been extended to allow authors to submit based on this new information.

DCOSS 2010 will feature a poster/demo session that provides a forum for distributed computing and sensor network researchers and developers from academia, industry, and government to interact with and explore the latest research results. Towards this goal, DCOSS 2010 solicits posters and demonstrations presenting recent original results or ongoing research in the general area of sensor networks. Authors are invited to submit interesting results on all aspects of sensor networks, including algorithms, protocols, systems and applications.

Poster presentations will provide authors with early feedback on their research work and enable them to exchange ideas with DCOSS participants.

Demonstrations provide a venue for hands-on experience for conference attendees and a means for researchers and attendees to interact with new research prototypes and testbeds.

Each poster or demonstration presenter will have the opportunity to present a one-minute rapid oral presentation of their work to attendees. This oral presentation will help generate interest in the topic of the poster or demonstration, to encourage attendees to learn more.

All posters and demonstrations will be reviewed and judged based on their originality, technical contribution and, particularly, their potential to generate interesting and interactive exchanges of ideas.


Poster and demonstration abstracts are limited to 2 pages in standard IEEE Transactions format ( and should highlight the leading ideas of the on-going research and its expected outcome and impact. All accepted abstracts will appear in hardcopy. Poster abstracts should present a summary of the research work and ideas that will be presented during the session. Demonstration abstracts should describe the demonstration activity, and in particular, describe special requirements for space and dedicated frequency channels, if any. Accepted posters and demonstrations must be presented at the workshop, and at least one author must be registered for the conference.

Submission Instructions:

Poster and demo abstracts should be sent via email as a PDF file to the Poster/Demo Session Chairs at npatwari [AT] ece [dot] utah [dot] edu. Please indicate "DCOSS 2010 Poster Abstract Submission" or "DCOSS 2010 Demonstration Abstract Submission" as the subject of the email.
