12th Annual IEEE International Conference on
Sensing, Communications, and Networking

June 22-25, 2015 - Seattle, USA


Abstract Registration: 4:00pm PST on December 5, 2014
Paper Submission Deadline: 4:00pm PST on December 12, 2014
Acceptance Notification: March 13, 2015
Camera Ready: April 10, 2015


The twelfth annual IEEE SECON conference will provide a unique forum to
exchange innovative research ideas, recent results, and share
experiences among researchers and practitioners in wireless networks and
mobile systems. The focus of IEEE SECON is novel communication
technologies and emerging applications and services, involving mobile
sensing and communication, and ubiquitous and pervasive computing.

In addition to the traditional topics published in SECON, this year the
conference would like to especially encourage papers in emerging
applications and services in areas related to Internet of Things, 5G,
small cells, wearable computing, and Software Defined Networking for
mobile and wireless networks.


Papers describing original, previously unpublished research work,
experimental efforts, practical experiences, and industrial and
commercial developments in all aspects of sensor networks, mobile
devices, and wireless communication are solicited. Within this domain,
particular topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Experience with deployment of mobile apps, networks and systems
* Software Defined Networking for mobile and wireless networks
* Wearable computing
* White space, cooperative and cognitive communications
* Network management for mobile devices, including data consumption,
energy consumption, and performance
* Novel smartphone-based sensing systems, tools, applications and
* Novel applications: cyber-physical systems, Internet of Things,
distributed mobile computing
* New communication technologies, such as NFC, visible light, underwater
* Low power and energy limited sensing and communications, including
* Cellular communications and data networks, such as cellular small
cells and 5G
* Measurement of wireless and sensor systems, and novel experimental
* Security, privacy, and trustworthiness of mobile, wireless and sensor
* Survivability, network management, and fault tolerance
* Application protocols and cross-layer design


Papers should neither have been published elsewhere nor currently under
review by another venue. All papers for IEEE SECON 2015 must be
submitted via EDAS at . Papers
must be no longer than 9 pages and in font size no smaller than 10
points. Additional paper submission instructions will be made available
on the IEEE SECON website . Papers that violate
the format guidelines will be rejected without review.

To be published in the IEEE SECON 2015 Conference Proceedings and to be
eligible for publication in IEEE Xplore, an author of an accepted paper
is required to register for the conference at the full (member or
non-member) rate and the paper must be presented by an author of that
paper at the conference unless the TPC Chair grants permission for a
substitute presenter arranged in advance of the event and who is
qualified both to present and answer questions. Non-refundable
registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the final IEEE
formatted, publication-ready version of the paper. For authors with
multiple accepted papers, one full registration is valid for up to 3
papers. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE
SECON 2015 Conference Proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore.

The organizers of IEEE SECON 2015 as well as our attendees expect
accepted papers to be presented at the conference. IEEE reserves the
right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g.,
removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference.
