IEEE DCOSS 2011 Call for Posters


IEEE DCOSS 2011 will feature a poster 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, IEEE DCOSS 2011 solicits posters 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 IEEE DCOSS participants.

Poster papers will be included in the Proceedings of the Conference and in the IEEE Xplore.

Each poster 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, to encourage attendees to learn more.

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

Poster papers submission:

Paper submission process via EDAS.

Poster papers are limited to 3 pages in standard IEEE Transactions format ( template ) and can also use the sample template for Microsoft Word: A4, US letter.
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.
Accepted posters must be presented at the Conference, and at least one author must be registered for the conference.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
  • 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:

Poster submission: May 02, 2011
Notification: May 12, 2011
Camera-ready: June 03, 2011

Poster Chair

Joel Rodrigues, Institute of Telecommunications, Univ. of Beira Interior, Portugal
