[DMANET] [CFP] DCOSS 2019 - 15th International Conference on Distributed Computing in Sensor Systems - deadline January 2019

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

The 15th Annual International Conference on
Distributed Computing in Sensor Systems (DCOSS 2019)

May 29-31, 2019
Santorini Island, Greece

DCOSS 2019 is the 15th International Conference on Distributed Computing
in Sensor Systems to be hosted on Santorini Island in Greece, in May
29-31, 2019. In the last few years, we have witnessed a significant
growth in the use of distributed sensor systems in a number of
application areas, ranging from smart transport, energy and buildings,
to factory automation, smart healthcare and environmental monitoring. In
order for smart sensor systems to truly become useful and pervasive, we
need to address a number of research challenges, including the tight
integration of sensing and machine intelligence, reliable and efficient
networking, interoperability and scalability, the need for dependable
autonomy, interaction with humans, and important aspects of security,
privacy and trust. DCOSS focuses on distributed information processing
issues arising in networked sensor systems, covering aspects of high
level abstractions, models and languages, novel algorithms and
applications, system design approaches and architectures, as well as
tools for simulated and real deployments.

Potential authors are invited to submit original unpublished manuscripts
that demonstrate recent advances in both theoretical and experimental
research. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

- Edge and fog computing: distributed computing models from sensor to cloud
- Energy harvesting models and optimisation
- Machine intelligence in distributed sensor systems and real time analytics
- Communication and networking primitives and protocols
- Autonomy: closing the loop between sensing and actuation
- Task allocation, reprogramming, and reconfiguration
- Robustness, resilience and dependability
- Security and privacy issues
- Approaches, tools, and experience of deployment and operation
- Performance analysis: complexity, correctness, scalability
- Mobile and human-centered sensing
- Interoperability, heterogeneity and scalability
- Crowd sensing and social sensing techniques, applications, and systems
- Complex systems comprising wearable, robotic and/or fixed sensor systems
- Novel and compelling applications
