Call for Papers
The Ninth IEEE International Conference of Networked Sensing Systems (IEEE INSS 2012)
(IEEE Sponsorship pending)

Antwerp, Belgium, June 11-14, 2012
Submission Deadline: December 24, 2011

During the past years, the IEEE International Conference on Networked Sensing Systems (INSS) has established itself as aThe scientific event where academic and industrial experts from the areas of next generation sensor systems, sensor network applications, and measurement and control engineering come together. The IEEE INSS provides a forum to hear about the latest developments in these areas, to exchange ideas, and to start up collaborations within these fields and between industry and academia.

IEEE INSS 2012 is the ninth annual conference in the series, and features a highly selective technical program. We invite outstanding research papers from the field of sensor technology, wireless networking, or applications of networked sensor systems. The conference especially encourages submissions that investigate research issues shared between all the three areas.

IEEE INSS 2012 invites the submission of regular, short, and industry papers. All submissions will be peer-reviewed and evaluated on the basis of originality, significance of contribution, technical correctness, and presentation. Papers submitted must not be under simultaneous review for any other conference, journal, workshop, or other publication. All accepted papers will be published atfrom IEEE XExplore digital library. Authors are required to attend the conference to present their work.
Regular/Short Paper Track
Regular papers must be 4-8 pages long (two-column format) and include an abstract of 100-150 words. Short papers must be 2-4 pages long (two-column format) and include an abstract of 100-150 words. All papers should be formatted according to the "IEEE transactions" format. Short papers are suitable for interactive discussions. Presentation time of accepted regular and short papers is decided on acceptance notification. Topics of regular/short paper track include but are not limited to:

Theoretical Study on Networked Sensing Systems
Applications of Networked Sensing Systems
Prototypes, Field Studies & Test beds for Networked Sensing Systems
Safety and Security of Networked Sensing Systems
Data Management for Networked Sensing Systems
Middleware for Networked Sensing Systems
Self-Organizing Networked Sensing Systems and Autonomic/Bio-Inspired Systems
Intelligent Sensing Systems
Sensor Phenomena and Modeling
Sensors and Sensing Systems
Sensors and Actuators for Smart Meter and Smart Grid Applications
Human Behavior Sensing and Ambient Support
Human Health Monitoring and Biomedical Measurement
Measurement and Control Issues in Networked Sensing Systems
Networked Sensing Systems involving Haptic Interactions
Materials, Design, Fabrication, and Packaging of Sensors

Industry Paper Track

INSS also offers an industry track. In this track,  new and interesting developments in networks for industrial applications can be recognizsed, whether in the area of sensor systems, wireless networks, industrial network applications, networks for safety related systems and applications, different security aspects in networks fault tolerant and redundant networks and many others. This session focuses on innovative, new and interesting network applications and research results for industries or developments which will be important in the near future. The industry track intend to provide discussion for practitioners, developers, and researchers in order to examine practical issues. Industry papers are suitable for industry researchers to present not only technical, but also practical issues surrounding production, deployment, and commercialisation of networked sensing technology. Industry papers must be 2-4 pages long (two-column format) and include an abstract of 100-150 words. Papers should be formatted according to the "IEEE transactions" format. The submitted industry papers will be reviewed by industry track TPC members and . aAccepted industry papers will be presented in the main conference's industry track session. Presentation time is decided on acceptance notification. The industry track aims at providing a forum among practitioners, developers, and researchers to discuss practical issues including but not limited to:

Designing networked sensing systems for commercial applications
Service models and architectures for successful deployments
Production engineering for networked sensing systems
Deployment and evaluation of networked sensing systems in practical applications
