Dear Colleagues,

*** We apologize if you receive multiple copies of this CFP ***

ACM SenSys 2020: Call for Research Posters Related to COVID-19 Pandemic Response
Submission deadline: 23:59 (AoE), September 25, 2020
Conference: November 16-19, 2020 (entirely online)

We sincerely hope that you and your family members are staying safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. As an embedded and 
mobile sensing community, many research groups are putting together efforts to assist healthcare workers in better treating 
this world-wide pandemic, as well as to support general public in better protecting themselves from potential risks of exposure. 
ACM SenSys 2019 will host a special session for sharing such efforts and solicits submissions of poster-style abstracts 
reflecting on-going research progress. We welcome submissions that discuss topics related to (but are not limited to) the following

* Contact tracing technologies for COVID-19
* Data collection and analytics for COVID-19
* System design and deployment experiences
* IT-medicine collaborative efforts in tackling infectious diseases
* Clinical support systems for pandemic response
* System design for remote education
* Other system design and implementation experiences to address challenges in the with-COVID-19/post-COVID-19 era

Submitted abstracts will be evaluated based on technical merit and innovation as well as their potential to stimulate interesting 
discussions and exchange of ideas. 

Authors of accepted abstracts will be given a one-minute slot in a "madness session" during the SenSys main conference 
to present their work in front of the conference audience, in addition to the poster presentation with other SenSys2020 poster 
track accepted authors. (Detail format of the presentation mentioned above is yet to be decided.)

All abstracts shall be formatted according to the main conference paper layout. Accepted abstracts will appear in the 
conference proceedings and the ACM Digital Library.

All papers will be considered for the Best Research Award (COVID-19 Pandemic Response Track). The program committee 
will select candidates for the award among accepted papers and select one or more award papers.

[Submission Instructions]
Abstracts must be submitted as a single PDF containing no more than 2 pages. The submission should be self-contained 
ready for publication, including the title, authors, institutional affiliations and contact information, abstract, main body, and 
references. Submissions must use a 10pt font (or larger) and be correctly formatted for printing on Letter-sized (8.5" by 11") 
paper. Paper text blocks must follow ACM guidelines: double column, with each column 9.25" by 3.33", 0.33" space 
between columns and single-spaced. Submissions can use this template (*) that is known to comply with the formatting 
requirements. Please DO NOT anonymize your submission. Upon acceptance, instructions for the final camera-ready 
abstract will be provided.

You may include links to additional online material such as videos. Links to videos showing the demonstration are especially
 encouraged. Videos of accepted abstracts will be linked from the SenSys web pages and permanently included in the 
ACM Digital Library.

At least one author of an accepted paper needs to register for the conference and present the paper at the conference. 
(Discount author rate for the authors on this track is now under consideration. TBD)

SenSys2020 goes to entirely online: We've been monitoring the progress of COVID-19 pandemic. It is a very dynamic target and the risk of mass physical gathering remains high. Putting the wellbeing of the community above all, we, the entire OC and SC, have decided to take SenSys2020 entirely virtual. With the change, we'll also be able to offer a discount registration fee while you worry less about travel restrictions/costs. Therefore, please do not hesitate to contribute your latest research result to the conference! We believe the decision is the best, albeit difficult, for us all, and the local OC members hope sincerely that there will be other opportunities to welcome you all to Japan.

Kind regards, 

Yuuki Nishiyama, Ph.D.
