Paper submission: 30 June 2021 (AoE) 
Notification to authors: 2 August 2021 
Camera-ready submission: 23 August 2021 
Symposium: 9-10 September 2021 


ALGOSENSORS is an international symposium dedicated to the algorithmic 
aspects of wireless networks. Originally focused on sensor networks, it 
now covers algorithmic issues arising in wireless networks of all types 
of computational entities, static or mobile, including sensor networks, 
sensor-actuator networks, autonomous robots. The focus is on the design 
and analysis of algorithms, models of computation, and experimental 

ALGOSENSORS 2021 will be held on 9-10 September 2021 in Lisbon, Portugal. 
It will be part of ALGO 2021, which also hosts ALGOCLOUD, ATMOS, ESA, and

The conference proceedings will be published in the Springer "Lecture Notes 
in Computer Science" series (publication expected October 2021). 


Selected papers will be invited to a special issue of the journal 
"Theoretical Computer Science", devoted to ALGOSENSORS 2021. 


Awards will be given to the best paper and the best student paper. To be 
eligible for the best student paper award, at least one of the paper authors 
must be a full-time student at the time of submission, and the student(s) 
must have made a significant contribution to the paper. The program committee 
may decline to make these awards or may split them. 


Papers are to be submitted electronically using the EasyChair server at 
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=algosensors2021. The submissions must 
contain original results that have not already been published and are not 
concurrently submitted to a journal or conference with published proceedings. 
Authors need to ensure that for each accepted paper at least one author will 
register and participate in the symposium. 

Submissions must be in the form of a single pdf file prepared using the LNCS 
latex templates and style files. Each submission should consist of the main 
part of the paper, not exceeding 12 pages (including the title page and excluding 
the references), plus an optional clearly marked appendix (to be read at the 
discretion of the program committee). Any figure pertaining to the main part of 
the paper should be included therein (within the 12 page limit). The first page 
must include an indication of whether the paper is eligible for the best student 
paper award. 


IMPORTANT NOTE: We hope that by September it will be possible to travel to Portugal 
from many parts of the world, but we also expect that it may be unsafe, difficult or 
impossible for some people to attend in person. If your paper is accepted we hope it 
will be possible for you to present it on location, but remote participation options 
will be available, and the choice of whether to travel would be yours entirely.
