Conference Call for Papers


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Potential authors are invited to submit original unpublished manuscripts that demonstrate recent advances in both theoretical and experimental research.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
