[DMANET] CfP: IEEE PerSeNS 2013 - - Submission Deadline Extended to: NOV. 12, 2012

----------Apologies for multiple copies of this announcement---------

The Ninth IEEE PerCom International Workshop on
Sensor Networks and Systems for Pervasive Computing (PerSeNS 2013)

in conjunction with IEEE PerCom 2013 (
March 18-22, 2013
San Diego, California



Wireless sensor networks are expected to be the basic building block
of pervasive computing environments. Aggregating sensor nodes into
sophisticated sensing, computational and communication infrastructures
to form wireless sensor networks will have a significant impact on a
wide array of applications ranging from military, to scientific, to
industrial, to health-care, to domestic, establishing ubiquitous
computing that will pervade society redefining the way in which we
live and work.

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together the main researchers
working on different aspects of sensor networking for supporting
pervasive computing environments. This is a very challenging task, as
it involves several technological issues (sensor architectures,
efficient networking protocol design, power management, security and
dependability, etc.), as well as the socio-economic aspects related to
the introduction of such novel paradigms and their benefits for the
community. The objective of the workshop is to provide a forum to
exchange ideas, discuss solutions, and share experiences among
researchers, professionals, and application developers both from the
industry and academia.

Papers describing original research on both theoretical and practical
aspects of sensor networks for pervasive computing are solicited. We
particularly welcome submissions that present implementation and
deployment results. Particular topics of interest include, but are not
limited to:

- Sensor-based systems and applications
- Operating systems for Sensor Networks
- Middleware and software tools
- Networking architectures and protocols
- Data gathering, aggregation and dissemination
- Topology control
- Power Management and energy-efficient design
- Time synchronization
- Location management
- Sensor networks with mobile elements
- Cross-layer architectures
- Intelligent sensor nodes
- Security and dependability issues
- Modeling and performance evaluation
- Measurements


Papers should contain original material and not be previously
published, or currently submitted for consideration elsewhere.

Papers must be submitted in PDF format.
Maximum length: 6 pages.
Papers must be prepared using the template available at the following page:

All submissions will be handled via EDAS.
Accepted papers will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press
in the combined PerCom 2013 workshops proceedings. At least one
author of each accepted paper must register to PerCom 2013 (there is
no workshop-only registration) and attend the workshop to present the
paper. Failure to present the paper at the workshop will result in the
withdrawal of the paper from the Proceedings as well as from IEEE


Paper submission deadline: EXTENDED TO NOVEMBER 12, 2012
