The 17th Annual International Conference on
Distributed Computing in Sensor Systems (DCOSS 2021)*
Coral Bay, Pafos, Cyprus
June 7 - 9, 2021

* DCOSS has always been technically co-sponsored by IEEE; approval for this year pending.

Submissions are now open!

DCOSS 2021 is the 17th International Conference on Distributed Computing in Sensor Systems to be hosted in Coral Bay, Pafos, Cyprus in June 7-9, 2021. In the last few years, we have witnessed a significant growth in the use of IoT and 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 issues arising in the entire IoT and networked sensor systems stack: 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 Potential authors are invited to submit original unpublished manuscripts that demonstrate recent advances in both theoretical and experimental research.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:

- Artificial Intelligence for IoT

- Smart healthcare to combat epidemics (including COVID-19)

- Edge and fog computing: distributed computing models from sensor to cloud
- Energy harvesting models and optimization
- 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
- IoT systems for emerging and developing economies
- Green and environmentally-friendly IoT

Authors are invited to submit original unpublished manuscripts that demonstrate current research on distributed sensor systems related to DCOSS topics of interest. Please use the US letter size (8.5 X 11 in) standard IEEE conference LaTeX format or Microsoft Word template available on the link below:

Note that DCOSS does not follow the double-blind review policy. The names and affiliations of all the authors must be present in the submitted manuscript.

A Special Issue of the Computer Networks (COMNET) Elsevier Journal will include selected best papers of DCOSS 2021.
