[Please accept our apologies if you receive multiple copies of this Call
for Participation (CFP).]


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

June 22-25, 2015 - Seattle, USA


Conference dates: 22nd-25th June 2015
Workshops (FOG Networking for 5G and IoT and SWANSITY) date: 22nd June 2015

* SCOPE: The twelfth annual IEEE SECON conference will take place at the
Edgewater Hotel in Seattle and 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 especially brings
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.

* KEYNOTE TALKS: 1) Dr. Mani Srivastava (Professor at the University of
California, Los Angeles, USA). Talk titled "Towards a Trustworthy
Pervasive Sensing Substrate for the IoT Era" and 2) Dr. Ramesh Govindan
(Professor at the University of Southern California, USA). Talk titled
"The Quantified Car: The Next Big Thing in Networked Sensing?". Speaker
bio and talk abstracts can be found at

* TECHNICAL PROGRAM: 55 papers have been accepted for presentation and
for publication in the conference proceedings. The complete list of
accepted papers can be found on-line at the conference web page:

* PANEL: The panel, moderated by Prof. Raju Pandey (UC Davis and
Synapsense Inc., USA) will provide discussion on "Security and Privacy
concerns in deployment of IoT" and will be held on 23rd June, 2015.

* Workshops: IEEE SECON 2015 features two workshops to be held on June
22, 2015:
1. The IEEE Security and Privacy concerns in deployment of IoT 2015 aims
to provide a forum for academic researchers and industrial experts
leveraging past experience in sensor networks, P2P and MANET research,
incorporing the latest advances in devices, network systems, and data
science to reshape the "balance of power" in the ecosystem of computing
and networking.

2. The IEEE Smart Wireless Access Networks for Smart cITY (SWANSITY)
2015 aims to cover related topics on how devise a city-wide networking
infrastructure capable (1) to efficiently guarantee communication in the
new envisaged ecosystem, (2) to manage the complexity of heterogeneous
devices and access technologies, and (3) to guarantee robust,
ubiquitous, and secure connectivity over the urban environments.

* POSTERS/DEMOS: IEEE SECON 2015 includes poster and demonstration
sessions providing a forum to present and discuss works in progress.
This year we have 12 posters and 4 demos on the schedule. Also, this
year IEEE SECON is running a best poster and best demo award
competition. Awards will be based on the novelty and the potential of
the poster/demo to drive further research.

* STUDENT TRAVEL GRANTS: The IEEE SECON 2015 organizing committee is
providing several Student Travel Grants to graduate students to enable
them to participate in our conference. See more information at

* PATRONS: IEEE SECON 2015 organizing committee thanks the National
Science Foundation (NSF) and Universita Della Calabria for their
support. See more information at

* VENUE: IEEE SECON 2015 will take place at the EdgeWater Hotel, 2411
Alaskan Way, Seattle, WA 98121. A block of rooms have been reserved
