[DMANET] CFP: DCOSS 2017 - Ottawa, Canada

13th DCOSS 2017
Ottawa, Canada, June 5 - 7, 2017
Paper registration through EDAS: January 6th, 2016
Paper Submission: January 12th, 2017


DCOSS 2017 is the 13th International Conference on Distributed Computing in
Sensor Systems to be hosted in Ottawa, Canada in June 5-7, 2017. Due to
their potential of impacting an entire host of application areas,
distributed sensor systems have become a highly visible research area. The
focus of DCOSS series of conferences is on distributed computing issues in
large scale networked sensor systems, including, but not limited to,
algorithms and applications, systems design techniques and tools, and
in-network signal and information processing. DCOSS puts together a highly
selective program where it primes for quality and innovation on works.

Potential authors are invited to submit original unpublished manuscripts
that demonstrate current research on computational aspects of distributed
sensor systems. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

Social networks and applications
Sensors for smart grid systems, green networks and sustainability
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
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

Paper Submission and Publication:

High-quality original papers are solicited. Papers must be unpublished and
must not be submitted for publication elsewhere. All papers will be
reviewed by Technical Program Committee members and other experts active in
the field to ensure high quality and relevance to the conference.
