International Workshop on
Collaboration and Sensors Networks and Systems
CALL FOR PAPERS
As part of
The 2011 International Conference on Collaboration Technologies and Systems (CTS 2011)
May 23 - 27, 2011
The Sheraton University City Hotel
Philadelphia, PA, USA
Extended Submission Deadline: February 7, 2011
SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES
Wireless Sensors Networks and Systems constitute some of the most significant contemporary technologies, attracting considerable research interest from various disciplines and application domains. They have been employed in emerging areas with high potential for societal impact, and are being used in plethora of biomedical, environmental and industrial applications. These applications generally require intelligent monitoring of various physical phenomena that generate the data volumes of interest. The processes involved in data gathering, analysis and information extraction / fusion, need to employ efficient cooperation and coordination among different tasks, in order to provide certain quality assurances, which is a paramount for various decision making activities. This, however, needs to be done in conjunction with prolonging the effective network lifetime and its topology control.
The International Workshop on Collaboration and Sensors Networks and Systems (CSNS 2011) aims at providing an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to present the most recent advances and future challenges in efficient management of various collaborative aspects in distributed, wireless and mobile sensors networks and systems.
CSNS 2011 will concentrate on highlighting the recent innovative research and development results in collaborative infrastructures in the context of wireless sensors networks and systems. It will be held as part of the 2011 International Conference on Collaboration Technologies and Systems (CTS 2011), strengthening the forum by providing a focused summary of the contributions in these emerging areas.
Topics of Interest include (but are not limited to):
PAPER SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS
You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to sensor networks and systems and collaboration. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and include up to 6 keywords from the above list of topics and an abstract of no more than 300 words. The full manuscript should be at most 8 pages using the two-column IEEE format. Additional pages will be charged additional fee. Please include page numbers on all preliminary submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments. Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript via the Workshop submission Web site at http://www.cs.fredonia.edu/csns2011/index/login.
Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, contribution, relevance, technical depth and the clarity of presentation. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be registered and presented at the workshop.
Accepted papers will be published in the Conference proceedings. Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the CTS 2011 Conference web site. It is our intent to have the proceedings formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of the conference. The proceedings is projected to be included in the IEEE Digital Library and indexed accordingly.
If you have any questions about paper submission or the workshop, please contact the workshop organizers.
