SCOPE

The use of sensors is familiar to citizens as they are incorporated in many devices including smartphones, vehicles, appliances, smartwatches, among others. The use of sensor networks is spreading faster everyday, and some examples are their application in agriculture, health, energy, environment, industry, smart cities, etc. These sensors are usually part of a set of sensors, which are interconnected with each other, and usually with a coordinating (sink)  node. Depending on the application and the types of sensors that interact or from which information is collected, the links will be established using different standards depending on requirements: range, bandwidth, power consumption, etc.. Due to its configuration flexibility and lower deployment cost, wireless sensor networks have become the most popular.

Nevertheless, several issues and challenges must be faced by engineers to guarantee the highest QoS, as security, channel reliability, battery life, interoperability with other networks, etc. Sensor networks performance rely on several impacting factors which must be investigated: network architecture, operating system, hardware implementation, radio interface, protocols, sensors technology, which must be optimized to achieve the highest availability, reliability, throughput and power saving.

In these networks, each node may be equipped with a variety of sensors, such as acoustic, seismic, infrared, motion, biomedical and chemical sensors with higher level of information inference associated with identification, embedded signal processing and networking of the data.

This conference intends to be the meeting point of researchers and practitioners to share experiences and ideas on innovative developments in any aspect of sensor networks, including Hardware of Sensor Networks, Wireless Communication Protocols, Sensor Networks Software, Hardware and Architectures, Wireless Information Networks, Channel Characterization, Data Manipulation, Signal Processing, Localization and Object Tracking through Sensor Networks, Modelling and Simulation, Applications and Uses.

Papers describing original work are invited in any of the areas listed below. Accepted papers, presented at the conference by one of the authors, will be published in the proceedings of SENSORNETS. Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance and originality. There will be both oral and poster sessions. Special sessions, dedicated to case-studies and commercial presentations, as well as technical tutorials, dedicated to technical/scientific topics, are also envisaged.

PAPER SUBMISSION

Authors should submit a paper in English, carefully checked for correct grammar and spelling, addressing one or several of the conference areas or topics. Each paper should clearly indicate the nature of its technical/scientific contribution, and the problems, domains or environments to which it is applicable. To facilitate the double-blind paper evaluation method, authors are kindly requested to produce and provide the paper WITHOUT any reference to any of the authors, including the authors’ personal details, the acknowledgments section of the paper and any other reference that may disclose the authors’ identity. 

Only original papers should be submitted. Authors are advised to read INSTICC's ethical norms regarding plagiarism and self-plagiarism thoroughly before submitting and must make sure that their submissions do not substantially overlap work which has been published elsewhere or simultaneously submitted to a journal or another conference with proceedings. Papers that contain any form of plagiarism will be rejected without reviews. 

Authors can submit their work in the form of a Regular Paper, representing completed and validated research, or as a Position Paper, portraying a short report of work in progress or an arguable opinion about an issue discussing ideas, facts, situations, methods, procedures or results of scientific research focused on one of the conference topic areas. All papers must be submitted through the online submission platform PRIMORIS and should follow the instructions and templates that can be found under Guidelines and Templates. After the paper submission has been successfully completed, authors will receive an automatic confirmation e-mail.
