Call for Papers


13th International Symposium on Algorithms and Experiments
for Wireless Sensor Networks


ALGOSENSORS will be in Vienna, Austria, as part of ALGO 2017

Abstract Submission (extended-firm): June 1, 2017
Submission (extended-firm): June 8, 2017
Notification: July 10, 2017
Camera Ready: July 31, 2017
Symposium: September 7-8, 2017


ALGOSENSORS is an international symposium dedicated to the algorithmic
aspects of wireless networks. Originally focused on sensor networks, it
now covers algorithmic issues arising in wireless networks of all types
of computational entities, static or mobile, including sensor networks,
sensor-actuator networks, autonomous robots. The focus is on the design
and analysis of algorithms, models of computation, and experimental analysis.

In year 2017 ALGOSENSORS has two tracks:

- Algorithms & Theory
- Experiments & Applications

Each paper must be submitted to a single track that fits the topic of the
paper best.

For the first time ALGOSENSORS will recognize its best papers. The
best paper from each track will be selected, and it will be given a
Best Paper Award.

A non-exhaustive list of topics relevant to ALGOSENSORS is the following:

Approximation Algorithms
Communication Protocols
Complexity and Computability
Computational Models
Cryptography, Security and Trust
Cyber Physical Systems
Data Aggregation and Fusion
Energy Management
Error Correcting Codes
Experimental Analysis
Fault Tolerance and Dependability
Game Theoretic Aspects
Infrastructure Discovery
Internet of Things (IoT)
Medium Access Control
Mobility & Dynamics
Obstacle Avoidance
Pattern Formation
Performance Evaluation
Power Saving Schemes
Randomized Algorithms
Resource Efficiency
RFID Algorithms
Routing and Data Propagation
Self-stabilization, Self-* Properties
Swarm Computing
Systems and Testbeds
Time Synchronization
Topology Control
Virtual Infrastructures


Full papers are to be submitted electronically using the EasyChair
server at
Original research papers must contain results that have not previously
appeared and have not been concurrently submitted to a journal or
conference with published proceedings. Each paper should select one of
the two tracks (Algorithms & Theory or Experiments & Applications) for
submission. Authors need to ensure that for each accepted paper at
least one author will register and attend the symposium.
Submissions are limited to twelve (12) single-column pages in the LNCS
format (see LNCS author guidelines at
This includes figures, but excludes references and an optional
appendix (to be read at the program committee's discretion).


As in previous years, the proceedings of ALGOSENSORS will be published
by Springer-Verlag as a volume of the LNCS series. Selected papers will
be invited to a special issue of the journal Theoretical Computer Science.
