[HTCondor-users] Call for Participation - IPSN 2013

8 - 11 April 2013, Philadelphia

The International Conference on Information Processing in
Sensor Networks (IPSN) is a leading, single-track, annual
forum on research in wireless, embedded, and networked
sensing systems. IPSN brings together researchers from
academia, industry, and government to present and discuss
recent advances in both theoretical and experimental
research. Its scope includes signal and image processing,
information and coding theory, databases and information
management, distributed algorithms, networks and protocols,
wireless communications, collaborative objects and the
Internet of Things, machine learning, mobile and social
sensing, and embedded systems design. Of special interest
are contributions at the confluence of a multiple of these

The conference features two interleaved tracks, the
Information Processing (IP) track, and the Sensor Platforms,
Tools and Design Methods (SPOTS) track. Authors should
carefully review the intended foci of these two tracks to
decide which track is better suited for their work, and they
are encouraged to contact the program chairs with questions
or clarifications. As an example of these different emphases,
results focused on the analysis and processing aspects of
data collected from deployments should be submitted to the
IP track, while studies on the hardware and software
platforms and tools used for deployment should be submitted
to the SPOTS track.

The IP track focuses on algorithms, theory, and systems for
information processing using networks of embedded,
human-operated, or social sensors. Topics covered in the IP
track include, but are not limited to:

Innovative applications and deployment experiences
Mobile, participatory, and social sensing
Coding, compression and information theory
Data processing, storage and management
Detection, classification, and tracking
Distributed algorithms and reasoning
Distributed and collaborative signal processing
Fundamental bounds and formulations
Location, time, and other network services
Sensor tasking, control, and actuation
Network protocols
Programming models and languages

The SPOTS track focuses on new hardware and software
architectures, modeling, evaluation, deployment experiences,
design methods, implementations, and tools for networked
embedded sensor systems. Submissions are expected to refer
to specific hardware, software, and implementations. Topics
covered in the SPOTS track include, but are not limited to:

Novel sensor network components, device platforms and
Embedded software for sensor networks
Design tools and methodologies for sensor networks
System modeling, simulation, measurements, and analysis
Case studies that describe experiences, highlight challenges,
and study/compare the performance of platforms and tools
Network health monitoring and management
Operating systems and runtime environments
Innovative sensing platforms including crowd sourcing
User interfaces for sensing applications and systems
