Smart Sensor

Call for Paper IWSSN
IWSSN Workshop 2013
The 2nd International workshop on Smart Sensor Networks
Beijing, China, Oct 10 – 12, 2013
The ubiquitous nature of sensor networks has driven the development of smart and autonomous sensors. In addition to basic information processing techniques, intelligent methods are being incorporated into the design, implementation, and management of smart sensor networks. Smart sensor networks are able to react adaptively and autonomously to their rapidly changing environments.This workshop will provide a forum for presenting and discussing the most recent advances in different aspects of smart sensor networks. The workshop will gather leading researchers from academics and industry to present their research and experiences in developing/deploying smart sensor networks. 
Authors of IWSSN workshop 2013 are promoted to freely enjoy CyberC 2013 and Big Data Summit. Both of the events are co-sponsored by a number of industry giants.
Topics of interest include, but not limited to
• Actuation Methods 
• Bio-Inspired Computing 
• Cognitive Radio 
• Cross-layer System Designs

Submissions not conforming to these guidelines may be returned without review. The submitted manuscripts can be prepared in Word, or Latex using the IEEE templates, but authors should finally submit the manuscript in PDF format and make sure that the file will print on a printer that uses letter size (8.5 x 11) paper. The official language of the meeting is English.
Paper Acceptance
Manuscripts should present the current research in the areas identified in the call for papers. All submitted manuscripts will be reviewed by experts in the fields and will be judged from the aspects of problem significance, contributions, originality, correctness, technical strength, quality of presentation, and relevance to the conference attendees. Papers will be accepted with Regular Papers and Short Papers with maximal 8 pages and 4 pages in the final version respectively.     
All accepted and presented papers, including the workshops’ papers, will be published by IEEE Computer Society's Conference Publishing Services (CPS) and will be submitted to the IEEE Xplore database. They will further arranged for indexing through IEE INSPEC, EI (Compendex), and Thomson ISI. Authors of accepted papers, or at least one of them, should register and present their work at the conference, otherwise their papers will be removed from the digital libraries of IEEE Xplore and EI after the conference.
